Five for Friday (Sunday Version!!!)

Hi there! I'll be linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday today. 

I bought a bunch of Zafu meditation pillows for my classroom recently. They are sturdy, and have a zipper so I can add beans to plump them up when my kiddos squish them down!

These are perfect for lowered tables. I found them online for $20 a piece!

I also ordered a handful of wiggle cushions. My kiddos are full of wiggles this year! We have a few Hokki chairs, but I thought the wiggle cushions would keep their bottoms on the chairs and their feet on the floor!

I also ordered Therabands. I plan on tying Therabands to the bottoms of some student chairs. They can put their feet on the bouncy band, bounce bounce bounce, and VOILA! No more feet on the chairs! As you can see, this is a major pet peeve for me. :)

We have been using Blurt Alerts to stop the calling out. Every time a kid calls out, I quietly X out one box. If they get 4 x's they lose five minute from recess. If they have no x's by the end of the day, they are entered into a drawing for a little prize.

Lucy got all dressed up this week!

  1. I just talked to our OT person about getting some of those bands for the chairs, too - I hope they work! I love your meditation chairs - I hope they work out. Lucy the Dog is looking beautiful!
