Brain Breaks and The Learning Station Giveaway!

I have some exciting news for you all!
I am having a fantastic giveaway!

We know brain breaks are so important
for our students. I still need brain
breaks...daily! I wanted a quick way
for my star of the week or birthday child
to choose a song, so we don't waste 
precious minutes, scrolling up and 
down, up and down, the lists of songs.

The idea is, the student chooses
the song (or two) before school starts
or during a free minute and gives them
to you. Then, when you are ready for the
brain break, go to YouTube, type in
 The Learning Station (include the
title of the song) and there you have it!
 No time wasted with decisions!

So, with the permission of 
The Learning Station, I created a 
little product that they just happened
to like! We both agree it will be a quick
way for students (or you) to choose AND
remind us to take those breaks!

I can't even tell you how kind they
were in their response to me!
They are so supportive and excited about
spreading the word on the importance
of movement and dance!

Here's the best part!

One lucky person will win
2 brain break DVDs from

That's a value of $40!

Click here to see each of the DVDs
as well as their other amazing products!

Everything is Awesome or Let it Go?

Do you love GoNoodle?!
I love using it for brain breaks
and my star student gets to choose
a song every day, at the end of the
day, so we can boogie on down!

GoNoodle is free!
Check it out here!

I made these fun cards so
my students can choose a song
before hand, as it always took
forever and a day to scroll through
them all so they could pick one!

"I want that one, no wait, go back
up, now go down, now up..."
You get it, right?!

Now, they pick a card before school
or during a free minute and there you go!

Just go to view all and click 
alphabetical order and you can
easily find their choice!

Click here to see the cards in 
my TpT store!

Would you like to win a copy?!
Comment telling me what your
favorite GoNoodle song is and leave 
your email! I will choose a winner
tomorrow night!

Thanks for stopping by!

Smelly Bubbles!!

If you have followed me for long,
you may know I love fun, smelly
things for school! Pens, pencils, markers,
stickers, smellies (flavored chapsticks to
rub on their hands for appropriate behavior)...
you name it and I probably have it!

Look what I found on clearance!

Smelly bubbles!!!!

I saw the idea somewhere last
year to use a bubble blower to
practice self control.  I already
bought one last year...but it
didn't have bubbles that smelled,
SO...had to have this one!

The idea is, while the students are sitting
at your meeting spot, (I did it while at their
desks too) you blow bubbles into the air
and they can't pop them, practicing self control!

Of course, they have to show the wrong 
way as well and pop bubbles! 

I pull it out whenever I think the 
students need a reminder!

Wish I would have thought to take
pictures of us doing this last year!

I am reallllly excited about my
newest packet!

sight word game and short vowel
activities, check it out here!
