Fern Smith's FREE Line Behavior Tip and Freebie!

Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas FREE Poster for Transitions with a Yes Line at Classroom Freebies!
When I was teaching, my students LOVED this free reward. When we were going to lunch, I would be watching for "A YES Line" - our class term for a terrific line in the hallway. When we got to lunch, the SILENT, UNSPOKEN QUESTION was, "Were we good?" If the answer was YES, they were allowed to move out of our normal ABC line order and then sit with a friend at lunch.

Families Are Worth A Mint

Do you do an Open House for back-to-school, or a Meet & Greet the Teacher Night, and are looking for some ideas?

Here's a quick, easy and inexpensive treat you can have.  I also do this for my Parent-Teacher Conferences.

Simply dump a bag of mints in a basket, add the signage and set on a table with a seasonal tablecloth and you're done.


They sell a bag of peppermints at The Dollar Store. I've also used Butter Mints that they sell in bulk at Sam's or Costco.

The packet includes the poem and the paper peppermint patterns. (Try to say that 3 times! :-) PPPPPP)
