Heartprints

On the last day of school I gave my kids a test.  Really, it's not as bad as it sounds.  In fact, my kids loved it!  It was called "How Well Do You Know Your Teacher?"  (I got the idea from Miss Trayers at Not Just Child's Play.  You should go take a look.)  One of the questions was, "My teacher always says..."  Many of them wrote down these words.


Listen to your heart.

I was secretly rooting for that response, because I consider it to be about the most important thing that I teach them.  I'd be a happy camper if in 40 years, that's the one and only thing they remember about their year in first grade.  Miss McMorrow taught us how to listen to our hearts.  Anyway, I have a few reminders on my walls about this topic.  (Here's one that I made.)  I also recently revamped another one.  Sorry to the person who created this saying.  I've had it for so long I can't remember where I found it.

  9. ABSOLUTELY love this saying!! I want to recreate it in my room - can you give me tips on how you did it? Do you use a cricut or something similar?

    1. Krista, I'm sure you could use a cricut. I actually drew the letters myself. I used Mod Podge too. I hope that helps. I'd be glad to give you more specifics though. I'm tickled that you like what you see here on my blog. That means a lot to me!
