How to Help Students When a Classmate Moves

Hello Friends!
As teachers we put our whole heart into what we do and our students.  We become a family.  When a student moves during the year it is hard on all of us!

I recently had a student move this past week and the hole it makes in your classroom hurts. Their spot is empty, something they may have left behind is found or dropped off in your room, kids ask about them ...
It is hard for everyone.
Moving Student Blog Post and Activity, Planet Happy Smiles
This blog will help you find ways to get your students and you through that tough time.

One thing we did for the moving student, is make a book for her.  She was thrilled to receive it and I hope it made leaving a little easier for her.

Here is what the book looked like:
The kids all created a page and put their feelings into words for the moving student.  It was a great way to express ourselves.

While the other children are creating their pages, the child moving creates their own memory pages.

They also autographed the book so the child could remember them all.

After all of the pages are complete, I collect them and I used a binding machine to put them all together.  The whole process was completed during our Morning Meeting time because I found out the day before that she was moving.

I also added a some photos for her!

Here is what the final book looks like:

If you are interested in making one of these for someone moving from your classroom, grab it here!
Student Moving Memory Book, We Will Miss You!
*This is also perfect for a student teacher leaving your room or even a retiring teacher.  Our principal is leaving soon and I plan to make one for her from my class!

We also included a 1/2 page version for you to use to save on copies.
Moving Student Blog Post and Activity, Planet Happy Smiles

Another idea if you have advance knowledge of the child moving, is to have a special day for that child. They get to be first at everything, a special snack, bring in fluffy friends, etc. Just make that day a fun memory for that kiddo!

Lesson Learned: I know I will now have a complete set on hand for those kiddos you find out about at the last minute! I never want to be unprepared for it again!

We hope these ideas help ease that time in your classroom!
Happy Teaching!

HP Instant Ink ... BEST Printing Decision I Have Made!

HP Instant Ink, Planet Happy Smiles
Hello Friends!
You may be on the fence about signing up for HP Instant Ink,
I know I was.

I am so thankful I listened to my friends and took the plunge! I even bought an inexpensive HP printer at SAMS just to get 6 months free on top of a friend's referral code! 
Here is my printer:
HP Instant Ink, Planet Happy Smiles
If you print 50 or more pages per month, read on to find out more about this AMAZING program.

Choose your plan:
HP Instant Ink Pricing
Photo Property of HP
I went with the plan that costs $9.99 a month and I can print 300 pages a month.  I can also roll over up to 300 pages. Once you hit the max roll over you can't roll over any more. I like having the roll over so I have a cushion if I need to go over some months. You can go over each month but you will pay a small fee.

The BEST thing to me (besides saving money) is getting some of my time back!
I never have to make a trip to the store for ink.  The computer sends the information and they know when to ship the ink.  It is so simple.
Here is what your box will look like:
HP Instant Ink, Planet Happy SmilesHP Instant Ink, Planet Happy Smiles
I have never had a problem with their service at all!   

Another BONUS is they will recycle the cartridges for FREE!  Yes, that is right ... you just drop your empty cartridges in the plastic pouch they send, seal, and mail it back.  They pay the postage.
The plastic envelope is in the picture below:

If you decide to take the plunge, use our referral link to get 1 month for free!
click here: HP Instant Ink
Our Referral Code: fJRrC
You can also use a code from a new printer with the referral code to earn even more months!

Here is a video if you want to hear more!

Once you go to their site, you can check to see what printers qualify.

We hope you love it as much as we do!

You can also message us with any questions you may have. If you need help with codes, feel free to message us by email (planethappysmiles@gmail.com) or message us on Facebook.
We would love to help you!

The only benefit to sharing this information with you is the referral code which gives us both a month free. We do not receive any payment for sharing this GREAT opportunity to save money with you! 

Not ready to take the plunge, yet. Pin for later!
Happy Printing!
