Our balloon countdown also acts as a way to celebrate each wonderful student in my classroom. Each day we pop a balloon, a student's name falls out. That day then becomes dedicated to making them feel extra special. We make them feel loved by writing nice things about them and letting them be our VIP for the day! It's a great way to end the year and makes everyone feel great about themselves! #1studentdown #23moretogo #notenoughdaysleft #icouldcryrightnow #iteachfifth #teachersfollowteachers ... by haley

Brittany and BJ - What we loved most about using sparklers for our grand exit is the beyond expectations beautiful pictures with our faces in them marking the moment we left the most wonderful celebration where we pledged our love to each other.  Shelly did an outstanding job capturing a moment that we will hold dear to our hearts. -  Shelly Smith Photography by Fascinating Diamonds

Forgive me, I saw the idea for this one and can't find the original poster. Loved it, so had to "borrow a great idea" from another teacher! (We outlawed using the term "copy" in our class) �� #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachtoo #iteachfifth by maritza

Great way to continue good behavior in the classroom. Each day a new 'secret student' is picked and if they had a good day a letter goes home to their parent about how well they behaved! by coolnana

Some days you just aren't your best...today was one of those days for me. But it was nice, on a day when I feel off, to see all the things my students are proud of about themselves. Always something to smile about #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteach7th #miss5thswhiteboard #talentedtuesday by jaime

Build a "Thankful Tree" in your classroom. Each child can share what he/she is thankful for on a leaf (their handprint!). A great way to talk about all that we are grateful for. #Thanksgiving #Preschool by olive

Sesame Street: Bruno Mars: Don't Give Up. We watch a video each morning as part of our classroom routine. Usually they are Schoolhouse Rock! videos, but sometimes I like to share something a little different, too. Students see the same video all week, and by the end of the week, they are singing and dancing along.  It's fun for all of us, and a great way to start the day. by bernadette

We love being leaders!! I'm so, so happy that I brought a teeny tiny bit of #leaderinme into my classroom this year. Between a day off Monday, field trip Tuesday, and half day guest teacher yesterday, this was the *perfect* way to start our Friday! Reminding one another that we are leaders and we got this. #iteachsecond #iteach2nd #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #morningmessage #miss5thswhiteboard #runningoutofmarkercolors by penelope
