Super Scents & Boo Boo's

A million years ago, before Pinterest (what??) I made these Super Scents. I think I found the idea from KinderKim



I printed mine on regular paper and used packing tape to attach. I'm thinking labels might work well too :)  Here is a copy for you to print out




I use Scento Markers on their papers and Super Scents on their hands. I put it on the hand that they DON'T write with because they are trying to smell and work at the same time.  Even my most sensory overloaded child loved them!!  I wasn't sure she would even be up for that, but I asked and sure enough- SUCCESS!!!

They never touch someone's mouth and no one has ever had a reaction.  There was some hub-bub in one of my groups and those who it was new to the concept were concerned. Many chimed in to try to clear up any misconceptions. 

I pick out one right away in the morning after they do morning work, I get another one.  I *might* have a lot... lol  Here is mine:
Y'all it is UGLY!!  Mine was made back in the dark ages lol

Here is a close up:
 The one I made for you all is so much prettier!



Anyways-- here is another idea that is on her Tips Page "Boo Boo Lotion".  As she says to get the lotion from hotels... ummm yeah, I don't go to hotels lol  So two ideas.  Get small little bottles from dollar store or get a huge bottle and then get empty little bottles in the travel section from HBA section in a store like WalMart or Target maybe even Dollar Tree.


Along the lines of boo boo's I have a Boo Boo binder.  I got the printables and have used it with kinder kids through 3/4th graders.

Here are the body parts on the inside cover: 
Here is my pencil pouch with tiny bandaids that fit on nothing lol
Here is one page... I'm not really sure what was going on-- like she forgot where she got hurt lol
Here was one that where they hurt their toe...
well no wonder why-- look at their nails!!!
 Here is the note we send home.
The best thing that I've added these to make it even more special.





I got all the printables from Kinder by Kim in her Jazzing Up Journals
I am working with Kim to get this on TPT, but until then check it out on Creative Teaching Press

Accomplishments

Sometimes I *might* take a few photos... I always have my phone on me :)  I ask the students if I can  take a photo of their work because after all, it's their work.  BUT sometimes, they are so proud of their accomplishments they ask me to take a photo.  For some, it's no big deal, however, with some of the more shy students, they are a little leery.  It is the look or twinkle in their eye that makes me ask them if I should take a photo.

 We were doing iPads and this little froglet did this all on her own.  She is ELL (English Language Learner) This is a fabulous accomplishment for her and I was so excited for her.
This is part of our morning work.  This was a favorite of mine just because they had to write about a frog.  Their sentence was "Frogs are poison."

Summer Shares

During the year, I feel like I never have time during the school year and I'm not even teaching full time!! I take zillions of photos when I'm in a classroom.  The students all give permission for me to take photos and will find me when they want me to take a photo!!

So as you've noticed that I just share random photos from whatever we were doing.

I'm busy over at kinderpondjr.blogspot.com where we have Tot School for my 2 year old.

I will continue to share photos but I also wanted to see if you were on Periscope.  WHAT???  You don't know what Periscope is? It's like a video conference where teachers chat about all different sorts of things- from personal to showing off their classrooms!



So I'm on there-- I have yet to turn the camera on... I've not yet been given a "shout out" to share my 3 facts. *hides now*  I share when I'm in a Periscope and it's something that I might think you will find it interesting.


When you join in a session, you tap on the screen to "give hearts"  It's like showing that you had an "a-ha" moment or liked that thought. :) 

Periscope is connected with Twitter, so if you need to direct message me, you can do so there!

Periscope is relativity a new thing and teachers have recently taken it over and *might* have crashed it a few times.

As a side note- if I can't comment and only give hearts, I probably won't share to my followers.  And unless it is maybe a FF or a dollar store/spot Periscope, I probably won't even watch.  It's all about interacting with your followers. #realtalk!
