What I missed

I have now missed two days of school. :( I miss my kiddos, and I bet they will be happy to see me tomorrow. I took these pics on Friday, and since I have slept on the couch the last 3 days, I didn't get a chance to make a good post.

A little view of how they use iPads during centers. Look at how engaged they are!

Deedee Wills had this in her Penguin Fun Math Centers. I bought these cute Penguin manipulatives and my kids love them.

We started a new thing at our school. We are handing out "Warpup Bucks" when we catch our kids being good. When they get 5, they go get a prize from our Principal. And the end of the semester, they go in a drawing for a BIKE.

Great idea, and it is WORKING. But I don't know about you, but my kinders are not very responsible. They would lose those things in like 2 minutes. So I whipped this bad boy together, and so far it is working amazingly!

Well I am headed off to bed, after two days of couch living, tomorrow is going to be a shocker to my system! Night Night!

  1. Like your little pockets! We do something similiar for good behavior. We pass out what we call "Dragon Tails." The kiddos right now are trying to collect enough to go to a Milwaukee Wave soccer game next month. I think I might borrow this pocket idea b/c I have those tickets all over the room right now. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi Kaci
    I'm glad you are on the mend..it's no fun being sick and even harder to miss school and have a sub. Love all your pics.
