Teaching Tip Linky Party

Today I am linking up with one of my favorite bloggers Hadar from Miss Kindergarten for her Teaching Tip Linky Party.  I have a really simple tip that I use in class with my kids every year ~ Stamp and Sticker Books.
Growing up I use to love collecting stickers and amazingly kids nowadays still do too.   Each child has their very own mini book where they keep their stickers and stamps that they collect.  At the beginning of the year I cut 3 - 4 sheets of copy paper in half, staple a cover sheet around it and ta-da a place for kids to hold their stickers.
My firsties books are on the left, my kinders are on the right  
Nine times out of ten when I give my kids the option of taking a sticker home or putting it in their book, they put it in their book.  I think they like the idea that they can go back and look at it whenever they want to.  They also seem to like comparing their stamps and stickers with their friends.  Whatever the reason. . . the kids love it, I love it and the custodians love that they don't have to peel fallen stickers up off the ground.

So there you have it short, simple and cheap.  If you want to join the party, click here. Well I'm off to read some more teaching tips.
SHINE on everyone!!!
