Here is my latest bit of classroom creativity. I have lots of people to thank for this one. Have you seen The Teacher Tipster's fake phone call video? It's really quite genius. Connie from Welcome to First Grade Room 5 posted it on her blog with a great idea for how she's going to use it in her classroom. You should really check it out.
Then the tattling telephone from Katie and Sarah at K-1 Teaching Besties inspired me too. Go ahead and take a look.
Surrounded with all this inspiration, I had to do something. So I got myself a cheap thrift store phone and added "Call me" with Mod Podge. I'm looking forward to using it to make some fake phone calls when something extraordinary has occurred in my room that I really must share. It will also double for a tattling telephone that children can use when I'm not really available to listen to such things (which will be never). I made up a list of people they might just want to call that I'll post next to the phone.

I've got a certain song stuck in my head now. How about you?
