A Think ‘N Roll

One of my students really likes this thingy called a “Think ‘N Roll”. It is a tool for fidgeting feet.
It can make noise so I have cautioned students that when that happens it is no longer an effective tool helping them to listen and will be put away for a time.
This is discreet, keeps kids from tipping the chair, and it is simple to add or remove. It costs $9. at School Specialty Canada. Unfortunately shipping and handling can add a chunk but I was ordering a bunch of stuff since there are some neat tools available.

A Girls’ Group

Salvaging Sisterhood 1

 

Salvaging Sisterhood 2

 

I am just completing 8 sessions of Salvaging Sisterhood with the grade seven girls of our school.  What a privilege to have a chance like this to get to know these girls in a time spent away from math and reading.  The lit candles were our candles of confidentiality (battery operated) and the box contains affirmation sentences that the girls take with them after each session to help them battle the negative things they may tell themselves.

It has been busy, but well worth the time.  Highly recommend this curriculum.

A Way To Relax

I made a relaxing jar and it really works! I adjusted the contents so that when the jar is shaken it takes approximately 3 minutes to settle. Our kindergarten teacher made one too. It can be used to diffuse a temper or distract a child that is upset. I have students that find it very soothing. Thank you to my colleague that sent me the link.
