Not sure if I have ever posted about this book, but if you haven't read it yet, I would recommend it. It's a perfect book for a time you need to just enjoy your students being KIDS and rolling on the floor laughing at second grade humor... I was laughing at how into the humor they were. One student even yelled out, "Man, this book just never gets old!" Of course, it is also good for teaching personification and voice.
We were one brain break after the next here this week leading up to Spring Break and being stuck with indoor recess a bit. I found that sometimes the brain breaks have the opposite effect and they are all revved up afterward. I have started following a brain break with one of the brain exercises on Go Noodle to get them to concentrate again. They are about a minute long, and they are tricky!!!
Happy Weekend Teachers!
