Classroom Fun!
So it is the end-of-the-year and behavior management can begin to get a little tough. There are so many GREAT ideas out there to help keep kids focused on learning and still have fun!

One of those is "Popping for Positive Behavior!"

Behavior Management Strategies, Balloon Pop, Planet Happy Smiles

You can make up your own rules, but here is how it works in my class ...

Supplies: Signs, slips of prizes/rewards, and balloons.  I used thumbtacks to attach them to the board but you could string them on a line with  cute clothespins.

I rolled the small papers (folding doesn't work well) and stuffed them in each balloon, blew them up, and tied them.

Then, I tacked them to the bulletin board.
I hung 25 in a 5x5 arrangement.

Each day our class has had a FANTASTIC day, they get to pop a balloon.  There is a small paper with a prize.  Whatever balloon they pop, we will do that activity/prize the next day.

Here is another board I worked on for a teammate.  It would be great for anyone who is doing a Movie Theme or Hollywood Theme!

You could also do this as a countdown.  I just don't countdown in my classroom because sometimes kids can get wilder the closer the countdown gets to the end. Plus, I am already really sad about losing this group!

Grab it in our TPT Store for just a dollar!
We love all of the AMAZING teachers out there!

Feedback Freenzy ~

Hello, Friend!  We are so glad you stopped by to visit!

This week for Teacher Appreciastion, we want to reward all of the positive feedback you give us!
We want to give a small token of our appreciation for the BEST feedback(s) we recieve from today May 1st until May 4th! The winner(s) will receive a product from our store that is $5 or less.

Answers to questions you may have:
*The more items you leave feedback on, the more chances to win!

*It counts on past purchases as well as those made during the 

*You earn TPT credits for the feedback you leave on paid items! Positive feedback on free items makes sellers want to post more free items! 

One thing I was asked is: "How can I find all of my past purchases to leave feedback on them and get my credits?"

Just in case you did not know where to go to leave feedback on all of your past items. Here is a picture to guide you. You can also leave it on the freebies you have downloaded, too.
As sellers, it means so much to us to receive feedback on the items we create. We spend a ton of time away from our families making these items to use in our classrooms and we love to know they helped others!

The positive ratings send our spirits sailing and inspire us to create more or improve an older item. Of course the negative ones hurt because of all the time and heart that we put into them.
We are always driven to make the BEST items for you!

If you ever do have a problem with an item we have made, please contact us before leaving any negative feedback and we will see if we can help you!  Our #1 goal is to have you love what you buy! Our email is planethappysmiles@gmail.com
