Hi! Found a new attention catcher – keeper. See if this works for you…
…I think it’s funny; I heard a variation of this idea on the radio.
GET OUT THE GET WELL CARDS!
Having to host a Parent – Teacher Night soon in your classroom?
No time to clean up the way you’d like?
Set out a small but noticeable collection of get well cards on your desk, like you see (barely) in my blog pic here.
Stand the cards upright. When the cards catch a visitor’s attention, offer this, “Yes, I’ve been a little under the weather lately; didn’t have time to clean my classroom the way I usually do!” When they ask if you’re better now reply, “Oh yes, thank you, and thanks for coming tonight!”
Are you thinking like I am? This trick would only work for ONE Parent – Teacher Night per school year.
