My latest "Pinter-ations!"

Behaviour, Behaviour, Behaviour!!!!

This is me today if I could really take my picture today!!! The FCAT schedule is really torturing me and my class!!! We have special area first thing in the morning, then 100 minutes of Language Arts, lunch, then the rest of the afternoon hunkered down in our rooms= No Bueno!!!

Now I do pride myself on being an effective teacher in classroom management. I always joked that as the token Asian teacher I am well versed in Kung-Fu (total joke) but man!!!! even I am tired and tried at the end of the day. 

Our primary units use the behaviour system of Promise Bands.

They are simply a hair tie with Oh-So-Much meaning. Every day kids choose 3 bands to put on their wrists. The kiddos will work to gain as many promise bands as they can at the end of the day and they are so proud to walk away a big number. Now some teachers are more giving about it than others but that is their prerogative  You can give promise bands for anything (following directions, being on task, answering questions when you hear crickets to that all important question you asked..whatever) but can also take for transgressions just as easily. I like them because they are immediate feedback for great behaviour but also a great for consequences. It is a good visual for kids. 

Here is a copy of the letter we sent home to parents if you are interested:

Hope this helps some of you as we move forward onto the last few weeks and it serves as a reminder to myself....

Follow my blog (if you haven't already) if you AGREE!!!!! LOL!!!

  1. Love this clip in hair extensions so far. I ordered the 22in wig on 11/12 and received it on 11/15. I'll start with cons since there's only one. The smell of the brazilian hair uk is something I cannot take. I received it at work and placed it in the car on lunch. When I left work at the end of the day, my car reeked of the smell. Anyway, the hair bundles is the shedding I got after bleaching the knots and combing and conditioning the hair which is amazing since I expected so much more. The curls pattern is everything and the human hair wigs uk is super soft. I've gotten so many compliments and I love it. Definitely buying from this seller again. This wig really did impress me. I purchased two other wigs from net, and I had to send them back, because they were too thin. This wig was not as thick as shown in the picture, but it was thick enough and the curls are beautiful. It has a nice natural look. The lace wigs is plucked nicely, however the knots are not bleached. That wasn't a problem for me, because I used some concealer, and put a silicone tape strip under my part. It's cute. Not bad for the price.
