Well, I had a crummy weekend. Pretty much as bad as they come. Yeah. It was bad. And I wasn't feeling too kind or nice this morning either.
So, I knew I had to get myself out of the gutter... so...
... we did a little bulletin board project that had all my kiddos smiling from ear-to-ear which just warmed my heart and really did help turn my day around!
A few weeks ago, I raided the Dollar Spot at Target and got all this great loot. So, each kid got a large foam heart and a variety of the foam/felt heart stickers.
Then I passed out these copied on red and pink paper:
When everyone was done, we sat in a circle and everyone went around and read their heart to their friend. The smiles and blushing cheeks were SO nice to see and hearing the "thank yous" at the end was even better!
Then I hung them on a slightly un-balanced bulletin board in the hallway... I'm trying to get over the uneven distribution of the hearts... it's hard! I love to make a sign for my bulletin boards that a student colors, so I usually do that instead of cutting out letters. They enjoy having a hand in the bulletin board too! So, a couple of my boys decorated the sign.
And how could my day not turn around when one of my sweeties shared the one she did for me:
So, if you're looking for a way to add some sunshine to your students' day... or even to your own... do it! :)
Here's to hoping for a better week for myself!
