My 1st guest blogger: Lori from Teaching with Love and Laughter

Hello! My name is Lori and I am the author of 


And, this is my blog:



I am thrilled beyond words to be a guest here on Alessia's outstanding blog. Alessia and I became best blogging buddies six months ago when I was a newbie to the blogging world. Since then, we have helped each other out along the way and I was so happy when she asked me to come here and entertain all of you.

I decided to talk about something that seems to have captured lots of attention this year...the clip chart. I have already done a post about how I utilize my clip chart here, so if you haven't seen it yet, feel free to click on over to my blog to read all the exciting details.


I have also already talked about my daily take home calendars I'll be using this year here. Feel free to download them, too!


Today, I am going to share one more thing with you. If you read my post about how I utilize the clip chart in my classroom, you'll have read that I issue certificates to my students who have clipped up a predetermined amount of times by the end of the month. This is a huge deal to my students because they love the prizes. If you would like a copy of the certificates, just click on the image below. I guarantee that your little angels will work very hard to earn one (or two!) each month.

Well, there you have it! If you are interested in using the clip chart, now you have the clip chart, take home calendars, and reward certificates. You're all set to start a successful new school year! 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. If you are not a follower of my blog, you are invited to come and check it out. If you like what you see, please feel free to follow me. I love to share my thoughts, ideas, and activities with anyone who will listen. LOL! See you soon!

    1. Thanks, Jeannie! When the end of the month arrives, my students are very excited to choose their certificate(s). Lunch in the classroom is always the most popular!

  8. I recently changed my behavioral system at school to a chart like this. I LOVE the idea of student moving up and down... therefore ONE bad move doesn't mess up the whole day!
    THANKS for sharing!
