Today is our field day at my school and my Mon-"stars" have the opportunity in the tug of war to compete one on one.  I couldn't resist sharing this photo I LOVE IT!!

I am also doing this activity I found on Pinterest and I couldn't find the pin to give the other person credit, but I saw that The Teacher Wife is doing it as well.

I have put a fun activity in various balloons in my classroom, and each balloon has a specific date on it.  (I'm a bit of a control freak).  That way you can prepare yourself for what activity you may want to do that day.  

Some of my Activities include:

Sit by a friend at lunch
A Day without Shoes
Popsicles at recess
They may write in pen or marker all day
Sit by a friend on the field trip
Sit anywhere you want 

The list could go on and I'm sure that all of you have some very creative ideas that you could replace with mine.  Hopefully this just gives you a great place to start.  I hope everyone has a great day!

  2. A day without shoes . . . what a rockin' idea. My kids are always trying to get out of their sneakers in class. This is perfect for the balloon activity. We are running it next week. So glad I found you :)
