Mrs. Bainbridge is having a linky party come on and join in.
The only ones that came to mind are the following:
1. Did you forget to put your batteries in? I ask them when I'm not getting much participation from students.
2. Use your coconut! I'm referring to their brain, but they think it is cute.
3. When there is a situation with child A saying "so and so (child B) told me to." I usually ask child B to ask child A to give me $100. I let them know they need to think for themselves and make smart choices. It gets them thinking.
4. When I taught Kinder there would be accidents and spills. I noticed that they would all turn their heads to me to see how I would react. It also showed me that these poor little guys weren't use to my type of reaction and they might have been waiting for some yelling. I just would tell them- Accidents happen, clean it up and lets get back to learning.
