So a lot Twitter love from my write-up about my walls this year. Y’all recognize exactly how to make a girl feel good! I don’t have actually my lesboy plans prepared, and am not totally certain what I’m doing on the first day (which is tomorrow) yet hey, why not sit and compose a blog.

You are watching: Take what you need give what you can

So, for all who have asked, here are the pictures aacquire, in addition to some records. Nothing is super-one-of-a-kind, yet it functions for me, so possibly it will aid you out also.

Be…not a new production. It supplied to hang on the bulletin board on the wall on the way into my room. This year I relocated it into the classroom right into some “dead space” that isn’t good for a lot else–it’s too high to display screen student occupational and I don’t prefer to fill my walls through “advantageous posters”. I added the Be You…But Be the Best Version of you to it this year. That is just adhesive vinyl I cut with my silhouette machine. Sorry around the picture top quality. I didn’t realize it was so poor.



Here is a pdf of the BE and adjectives. I just published them onto white copy paper, trimmed the words down, and glued each one onto colored copy paper. Laminated, for durcapacity and also presto…a sophisticated little wevery one of motivation. BE

For the bulletin board in the hallmeans, I’ll be honest–I really was searching for something that I didn’t have to change. Ever. I strongly dischoose making bulletin boards. So. Much. Work. So, I scoured Pinteremainder (don’t judge–tbelow are some excellent ideas on there) and also witnessed a picture of a bulletin board that said Take what you need…Give what you deserve to. And had post-it notes almost everywhere it with positive traits or words of encouragement on them…stuff favor “peace”, “patience”, “you’ve gained this”, and so on The “Give what you can” side was for civilization to leave encouraging words for others. Last year, I did the “take” fifty percent and picked up post-its all year long. Eextremely day. No kidding. They just didn’t stick. I really simply did this on a whim, to gain the board covered; I was quite surprised to see children really take the words–I recognize some just did it to be cute, but a number of stopped me and shelp they really appreciated the extra encouragement. I didn’t perform the “give” fifty percent because, honestly, I wasn’t sure what sort of stuff the children would certainly leave behind and I didn’t want to need to police it.

So, this year I determined to “kick it up a notch”. Partly because a couple of kiddos really appreciated it and partially bereason I’m worn down of picking up post-its.

 I schosen a few traits that I believed the civilization could usage even more of and googled “quotes about…” each of those traits. I finished up at and had actually loads to pick from. I picked some various quotes for each characteristic, replicated them right into a table, picked some fun fonts for each, and hit print. Cut those negative boys acomponent and stuck them in the appropriate envelope. So this year if you are in need of a little kindness you can just pick up a quote that will hopefully assist you acquire with the day. If you desire the quotes, below are web links. Each word is a sepaprice attach. (Aacquire, I used the silhouette and vinyl to make the purple letters).

I really like the “Give what you can” concept, but again, am fearful of what some little darlings can want to leave behind so I combined that principle via another one I found–a Random Act of Kindness challenge.

It’s pretty standard, and definitely not my original principle. But I’m hoping it gets the suggest throughout. We need to be kind to others. The challenge is to take a job, perform it, then short article to twitter using our school hash tag or sfinish a snapshot for me to add to the board. I just offered work that are free, simply to save it basic for my students.

Here are the “steps” to the challenge: Random Acts of Kindness

Here are the tasks I came up with: Random Acts

It’s pretty simple stuff–sit via someone new at lunch, clean up after someone in the cafeteria, offer a shout-out to a lunch worker or a maintenance perboy or a secretary, stuff like that. I’m also hoping that children will certainly come up through other acts they can execute and include to my list. That’s what the idea envelope is for.

I number if even simply a pair of kids obtain the message and also spread kindness, or find the encouragement they need, it’s worth it.
