Tis the season to link up, so I'm joining the masses with my own linky and inviting you to join me as well. (Which is a bit scary since this is my first ever.) I've wanted to post about my classroom mantras for a long time. There are so many things that I say over and over. (My kids can attest to that. In fact, I say them so often, I let the children finish my sentences!) The thing is, I'd love to know what you say too, because most likely I'll want to steal your clever sayings for myself. So if you're reading this, consider yourself personally invited to join me. We'll probably all find something new to add to our repertoire.
This is my favorite!
My writers figure out really fast that if they ask me how to spell a word, they're going to get this response out of me.
This is one of my favorite things to ask a mathematician.
This year we talked about not sweating the small stuff. When it comes to their neighbors, they can turn small stuff into big stuff much too quickly.
Boy does this one come in handy!
This works really well when you insert the name of the person someone is trying to control. In other words, take care of yourself!
I could go on. I'd better stop, so you can start working on yours (especially since this linky is only up for a week)!
- Please use the graphic at the top of my post to link back to my blog.
- Feel free to use the graphic below for your mantras if you're feeling fancy. Otherwise, please just make yourself at home and share them in whatever fashion makes you happy.
- Of course your mantras can come from a variety of places - behavioral or in any academic area.
- Share as many as you'd like. The more, the merrier.
