I really needed a hall pass.
So I'm linking up with Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits for my HALL PASS today!
It's hard to choose a favorite product of mine because it would be like having a favorite child (and we know that is not allowed!! hee hee) - so I'm going to include one that I had a lot of fun using with my kids fairly recently.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of my favorite area and, since I'm at home, can't take one. So you're just going to have to use your imagination. :)
My tried and true signal is, "GO." I know that sounds weird, but hear me out. It never fails, before they are trained (and yes, every now and then even after they are trained...) as I'm giving multi-step directions, the kids start getting up to do what I've said before I get to direction #2. So, I have trained them to listen all the way by saying first, "When I say go..." then telling the instructions. Like I said, every now and then you have that one who jumps the gun, but for the most part, this makes them actually listen to what I'm saying before they just get up and do it.
What keeps me sane at work... chocolate! Have you seen these new M&Ms? I am excited to try them out- I just picked them up today! I loooove white chocolate!
Go link up with Reagan and share your HALL PASS!! (That is, if you haven't already... seems I might be the last one in bloggy world to get around to doing this!!)
