Leader In Me Conference, Instagram Link-up, Giveaway, Book Exchange, Chipotle Rumors la de da etc

Friday I was honored to go to a Leader In Me School in Quincy, IL and let me tell ya- It was an amazing experience. It was an eye opening experience to show how a school building should run. I basically fell in love with the atmosphere, organization,  and structure and I'm excited to implement as much as possible into my classroom next fall. This school has been a Leader In me school for nearly 9 years. They also implement PBS with tickets. They are about 92% free and reduced lunch (More or less). Regardless, their poverty level doesn't change their learning environment. They have the structure and discipline of a private school and the love that is inside the building is felt in every classroom. I took a ton of pictures and can't wait to share them all. I'll try not to overload you all today! Click on pictures to enlarge.

The first bulletin board that took your attention was this beauty. Amazing, right!?




It is amazing to teach this generosity at such a young age especially in such a low income area. I think it is important to teach child that not only can you give financially but you can give gifts that are free too!

I think I will add site words and attendance/homework to my goal folders next fall. I also plan on adding monthly behavior sheets. These photos came from their third grade folders.

It is my personal account but I add both!



Today I added a picture of the book we just finished! 


Our class would totally recommend this book to any class to read. It was amazing. I might have cried at least 3 times at the end. Read it, it is worth every second. It is my new favorite book and I will probably read it to my fifth graders next year. I wouldn't probably read it to any grade lower than 3rd---some of my kids didn't get the "read between the lines" business.


Woo hoo! We are also having a book exchange! I wanted to do one last year but never got around to it so this year we are exchanging fo sho. I just sent it home yesterday and I already have a student who brought in 18 books today. I plan on going to Goodwill several days before and collecting some other books for my students who brought a ton, as well as going through my own books. (click to enlarge invite)


And don't forget to head over to The Third Wheel for an awesome giveaway. That I'm a part of. I can't remember what I said I was donating though! Whoops. 



It is finally warming up in Missouri! 13 1/2 days of school left! Then I'm heading to my new district for a week of learning. For their last day of school they will come to "my" class! I've got lots of fun things planned for them already and I'm excited to share them with ya all next week.



p.s. This picture is circulating! I heard they are announcing something on Thursday! Get excited. Wish I had one nearby:( click to enlarge

Your book exchange idea is GREAT. We have something similar in our school library.

Your exchange gave me an idea... maybe we could do a blogger teacher exchange where everyone sends one of their favorite books to another blogger they are paired with. I always LOVE getting mail... and I am a bit obsessed with children's books. =)

Is the homework/attendance a self-monitoring tool for students?
