Be a Buddy- Teaching and Motivating!

Valentines Day is right around the corner but at our school, we are focussing on Being a Buddy all month long!  Sometimes a kind word is all it takes for our brains to get a better mindset!  I work at a school with a lot of underprivileged kids.   I see high behaviors very often so any positive message I can share with them is helpful.  My favorite message from the posters is, "One person can make all the difference."    

Thank you Oriental Trading for sending me these items in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this post and all opinions expressed is 100% my own.  

So all of February I will have students earning stickers with positive messages, Bully Free activity book, bracelets, bookmarks, dog tags, and buttons!   

My oh my, Oriental Trading has so many teacher needs!   I love all the affordable prizes!  As a behavior teacher I know how important it is to have motivators for kids as well as positive messages.  Go check out all the incentives you can add to your classroom!  

These stress balls each have a message that I hope my students will read and reread and get in their brain and their heart.   I want them all to display these characteristics in and out of school.  I use these has a coping skill for my students when they become frustrated.  They can squeeze them or throw them in the sensory room.  

As you can see a little on this ball the message is very thin.   I actually had one of them peel completely off.  :(

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
