Today is the LAST day of Teacher Week ’13 and I’m going to share a few of my classroom tips and tricks!
1. Tattle Spray – My kids LOVE it! When tattling becomes an issue, I just spray myself with a little tattle spray! It ONLY works on teachers! Then… when the kids tattle I CAN’T hear them! I just hear a mumble-jumble of words! This magic bottle really works magic! I put it on Google docs so you can download your own here.
2. Green Lipstick – I have been using this little tube of green lipstick for the last 8 years! My students love it! It is something silly that they will always remember! This lipstick is special because once you put it on it turns BRIGHT RED!! If you are kissed with the green lipstick it will stay on your cheek for TWO.WHOLE.WEEKS! You are only kissed with the green lipstick if you are really, really bad! Of course, I would never really use the green lipstick… but my kids really get a kick out of hearing about it. Some of the older students who have come back to visit still talk about my green lipstick! I bought mine on Amazon. Just search “l’paige green aloe vera lipstick.” It actually really does turn red when applied! I always put a little on my hand and tell the kids I have to wash it off really fast.
4. Use Remind 101! It is a life savor! Being able to send a text reminder is super fast and easy! If you have never used this before you should definitely give it a try.
