Radio Shout Outs!

Today~ I tricked my students. Yes~ I had to fool them into thinking they were doing an assignment on radio/ T.V. commericals. While thinking they were listening to a local FM station to determine what makes a good commerical~ the DJ gave a shout out~ congratulating my class and the students at the school where I work for their hard work on Florida's standardized test~ the FCAT.

My kids' jaws dropped. They were like~ "Were we just mentioned over the radio?" They looked like a deer in head lights for a bit~ then they saw me laughing.

It was a special moment--and one that just took a little creativity.

This week~ that's what I would like to talk about --generating public praise for your classroom Join me there at the link below~ and together we can brainstorm ways to make our children feel uplifted and special.

Keep the fire burning~
