My Teacher Always Says Linky
My friend Tammy over at Forever in First is hosting a linky.
If you've never read Tammy's blog, I HIGHLY recommend it. She always writes interesting and thoughtful posts and shares lots of great ideas!! Join this linky if you have some sayings you would like to share.
Here are some of the sayings I use over and over in my classroom.
"Stop whining and start shining."
We've all had students in our classroom that like to whine about everything we do. As soon as the whining starts, I say in a nice teacher voice, "Stop whining and start shining."
It always seems to work!
"Treat others like you
would like to be treated."
I use this saying often. I think it's important for kids to think about their actions or words in this context. How would you feel in someone did/said this to you?
"You have a brain, so use it."
Some kids like to let others do their thinking for them.
(No explanation needed:)
"Instead of saying I can't how about
saying I'll give it a try."
I try to teach my kids to replace "I can't"
with "I'll give it a try."
