By Monday, I could hear the thunder.
Yesterday, the floodgates opened and the storm broke loose....cray cray classroom catastrophe!!!!!!!
I went home yesterday thinking of the 3 B's.....
my bed (and boys!)
I am not sure what was going on with my kiddos but I had a headache and even had the thought for the moment that we needed to go out on the playground for a LLOOOOONNNNGGGGG time so I could have some kiddos owe me a LLLLOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGG time!!! I knew then that I was putting them in charge of my emotions and I needed to remember that the only one I could change was myself.
Here is what I think caused some of the cray cray uproar:
*The kiddos who had the jobs of the Cheerleader and the Kindness Recorder are kiddos who need more help from me in helping them notice others to celebrate and add flowers for. Today I really tried to help the Cheerleader find friends he could celebrate. This helped others but especially him because he has had PMS lately.
*We had not done our Conscious Discipline School Family Circle time. Even though this only takes about 6 minutes, the kiddos need this time to make connections through the songs we sing but REALLY need for us to sing Our School Family Commitment Song.
*I was not celebrating all the helpful and kind things I was noticing.
I noticed but needed to encourage some of my
blabbermouths verbal kiddos more. Tomorrow it is time for me to break out my bubbles!

Here is a poem to help remind you what we are teaching our kiddos NOW will make a difference One Day!
Go grab you some bubbles and celebrate the kiddos you notice! =)
Marshmallow toes and a marshmallow mouths are pretty awesome too!
I would love a heart note or a question about Conscious Discipline I can try and answer for you.
