    So, I kind of thought about using a class mantra this year that we will say sometimes when I think the kids might want to give up. They come to me pretty hopeless. So I thought I would share what I have and see what you all think. Good :), bad :confused:, totally dorky :|?
    I am the head and not the tail
    If I don't try I will surely fail
    I control my destiny
    The tool I need to succeed is me. (Had trouble with this line.)
    I am smarter than the test.
    I know it all, I'll try my best.
    If I start to go astray
    I will quite loudly say...
    I am powerful, I am powerful, I am POWERFUL!


    Thoughts? :thanks:

    I like them! I have a poster in my room that says, "If it is to be, it is up to me!"

    Ha, I didn't even think of making them separate little mantras! I was thinking more of one big one to recite...huh. Thanks HistTchr!

    Do you think it would work as one long mantra?

    We start our driver's ed class with a mantra every day. At first the kids snicker and are hestitant to participate, but by the end, they're saying it loud and proud!

    Let's just say it involves stimulating a particular part of the male anatomy while looking at a female staff officer. It happens with alarming frequency! No one has done it to me............yet! hahahahahahahahaaaa Hey, it's prison!

    Oh...haha. It would probably work either way--all short ones posted separately, or just one that you always use.

    I have a poster in my classroom that I love called "In the Real World". Someone posted it on another message board several years ago and I typed it up. Feel free to use it if it will help, too: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/39150180/Classroom Pics/IntheREALWORLD.pdf

    I can't take credit for it, but it's always been a hit with teachers in my building. People who see it for the first time always ask me to send it to them! :cool:
