Here are some of my new coupons.................
I have had loads of requests & I will take more requests & add them to this file. I have TONS of comfy seats in my classroom & I'm sure you do too! This coupon can be used by multiple students in a day.....especially those that have the wiggly jigglies!
And here is one for your little nuggets that have cotton mouth ALL.DAY.LONG. I use hand signals & three fingers=drink. Well, you know you have certain
The electrician coupon will eliminate them tackling each other to turn something on or off. They just love getting out of their seat to turn on/off the lights, turn on/off the Smartboard, turn on/off the computers, be in charge of the listening center, ipads or ipods & the electrician can even grab your cell phone for you!
This coupon is for our lunch helper. They can pick someone to carry our home lunch basket! Our janitor even lets them help with the garbage during lunch! Why do they like this? ICK! They can even help their friends opening their milk of any other food items.
They are going to LOVE this! Especially since they are split up from their friends from last year. We have 6 classes! They will LOVE to go into other classrooms for indoor recess...what fun!
Are you a morning person? I.AM.NOT! In fact it's morning by the time I fall asleep...in the summer at least. You know you have those students that just do not get enough sleep & are half asleep when they get to school. When their feeling lazy they can give me this coupon & draw instead! They will love this! Who likes morning work? I know, we do!
I can't even tell you how many times I was asked....."Can someone go with me to the nurse?" Like it's the first time they were in the school! I would say "NO!" before they even finished their sentence. All my kiddos LOVE going to see the nurse....she is too nice to them...she calls them "pumpkins". This will give my little friends a chance to take a walk with their friend....you know to make sure they get there all right & everything ;o)
My students become just as OBSESSED with school supplies as I am. I get some fun & funky pens for them to use during D5.....two birds...one stone???
IDK about you but I take pics CONSTANTLY! I also have a classroom blog & post pics for the parents weekly. Who says I have to be the only one to take the pictures?? I show them how to use the camera & most of the time the pics turn out great! If they dont....DELETE. No biggie...they won't even know.
We usually hold 1-2 pj days in our grade level a year. They ask for it ALL.THE.TIME because they just love it! I just know this coupon will be super popular with them. Maybe I should mess with them & show up in pjs....not kidding.Don't you just love listening to them say the pledge???? They all start and end at different times & it just makes me giggle. Even though its really cute they need to learn to stick together & the pledge leader will lead us in the pledge for the day.
Go green! I hope you recycle in your classroom! My kids are so "green" by the time they leave my classroom the parent's hate me. The hubs & I recycle way more than we throw away. I am HUGELY into recycling. This reflects on my students when they gasp if they see a piece of paper in the trash! Trust me...it's a HUGE deal! My recycler will be in charge of making sure everything that belongs in the recycling container makes it in there without gasping interruptions. They will also pick a friend to take the bin down at the end of the day.
For most of the morning or when I am testing (which is NONSTOP) I am wearing a tiara. Well, they get jealous. I always get the cutie patootie crowns from Lakeshore every year. They can hand me a coupon to wear a crown for the day. I will also look at the Dollar Tree for crowns for girls & boys.
This can be used for so many things. We have a student council rep in each classroom but we do not have a class president. I might have them make a speech while their president for the day ;o)
I don't have the time to put stickers or stamps on each paper but the kids love it! I have so many stickers I don't even know what to do with them! I do use them for sticker stories but I will also let them add stickers to all their papers with this coupon.
You know you always have students that are obsessed with being a teacher when they grow up...especially the girls. I'm always giving my girls stuff to play "school" with at home. I will let them help me with a lesson that they are very familiar with. They will get a kick out of this! I will also make sure & snap a picture of them while they are being a teacher for my class blog.....HOLY CUTENESS!
I have so many chairs around my room it's sickening. It never fails they always want to sit in them! I caught them so many times spinning around on them when I'd walk in. I even had a student break one a few years ago. Towards the end of the year they were NOT ALLOWED to sit in the teacher chairs. This will make them get a chance to. If they choose to spin, I will look at them & wave....BUH-BYE & it's back to their seat they go.
There are LOADS of computer games on the web that my students beg to play. They especially love practicing their words on Spelling City! This will give them the chance to take a tech break & play a learning game on the laptops, ipads or at your desktop computers. We are getting a new school for the 2014-2015 school year & we will have a laptop charging station in our classrooms! Seriously, 20 something first graders with laptops....KMN.
Since I started teaching I have always had a classroom pet. I had a beta fish called Big Daddy that lived for 5 years! Last year I bought them a hermit crab & we named him Mr. Crabs. Not sure what I will be getting them this year.....I wonder if they'll fall for a Chia pet?
I have stuffed animals coming out of my.........! I even donated a TON to the librarian...their EVERYWHERE. When hubs & I moved I stumbled upon 2 VERY large garbage bags FULL of Build-a-Bears & Build-a-Bear clothing! Whoopsie...totally forgot about that. When I taught kindergarten my first year I would buy either a bear or clothing every time I got paid...this was a deal my students talked me into. Well, I wound up with a TON of Build-a-Bear stuff so I decided to bring it to school for the kids to play with at indoor recess. You would think I was Santa Claus when I brought this to school. The boys even played with it! Anyway, after more furry friends arrived the animals were out of control. Oh, I just bought 2 Skippyjon Jones' from Kohl's. Don't ask....you know I have an obsession with buying things in 2's. My zookeeper will keep me from losing it by keeping all our furry friends picked up & organized.

I have gotten SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many emails about these coupons & warm fuzzies. I honestly can't keep up with every one of them...I just can't. I did a presentation on Classroom Management for the Everything's Primary Expo that explains all about this system. It's over 2 hours of professional development for only $4.95! Once you buy it...you own it. Watch it on your own time & take notes. Classroom management has taken me YEARS to feel like I have complete control. I wish all these blogs existed when I started teaching. So many ideas & tips at your fingertips!
If you have any coupon requests please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org & I will try to get them made before school starts.
The first 3 people to leave me their email in the comments will get these for FREE! Thanks in advance for stalking me.
