    This year the kids told me that I was the second best teacher after their last year's teacher. I finally changed their minds! :pToday I got "you're the best teacher EVER!" :D Wanna know what magic I used??
    I had them count by 2's on their white boards while I timed them for one minute. They loved it!
    Then I started writing the 2 x1, 2x2, 2x3 etc. on the board. They started to complain that they didn't know their times yet. I then showed them the answers and they all gasped! :haha: they said I was magic!!

    Isn't it amazing how the simple things usually get them the most excited? I had a little boy tell me the other day as he rushed out to recess, "That was the most fun math problem ever! Well, so far..." The problem: solving 47 + 24 by breaking it apart mentally. ;)

    (And I'm totally stealing that activity when we start multiplication...)

    Cute! I remember having one student tell me in grade three that I was her fifth favourite teacher ever. And she was trying to be sincere about it too!

    That is super cute! I have found myself blushing this school year with excitement when I am able to capture them, get them to improve and turn around behavior. It's such an exciting moment... and I rarely blush.

    I had my cousin in my class, so I always say it's your favorite teacher..he does get a little red and laughs!!!

    It is the best when they tell you that or as a sub when all the students want you in their room!!!
