You must watch me now!

Made my a genius, aka a former student.

Ok so why do I love this? Well, it's a great way to collaborate with your school librarian when they do non fiction research. Have students research an animal and then pick a career that would be good or bad from them based on that animal's skills or traits.

Pawsitively Great Bucketfilling

This year I did bucket filling with a slightly different twist to go with my doggy loving theme.

First we read Halle and Tiger with Their Bucketfilling Family.  

Then we talked about ways we could fill others buckets and "treat" others they way we want to be "treated". The students came up with as many ideas as they could and we put them on dog bones. 

We displayed out ways of "treating" others in treat jars in the hallway. 

It turned out super cute.
