Editable Spring Break Tips for Students

On Friday I saw @counselingjbms share tips for students to get ready for Spring Break! I loved this idea and decided to make a version for my students. (Check out @counselingjbms for their post that inspired me!) I scheduled an e-mail to go out to all the students on my caseload Monday morning that includes these "Spring into Break" tips. Who knew you could schedule emails in gmail?! It is a definite game-changer! I created these Spring into Break tips on Canva . If you are interested in creating this Spring into Break tips for your students, and want to use this image, I created an editable Google Slide that you can customize for your students!  I created an editable Google Slide so you can create your own version of these tips for your students.

You can edit the text to customize these tips for your school and students. I pu

Mindulness Activity Cards

Our March and April PBIS theme is Mindfulness. I wanted to do something for remote students connected to our monthly theme. I created Mindfulness Activity cards with a few activities students could complete at home. I made a variety of choices so that hopefully they would be willing to try one. We assembled a packet with the Mindfulness Activity cards, an Outdoor Mindulness Scavenger Hunt, and a Mindfulness Coloring Page to send home to students who will be remote the last semester of the school year. For a personal touch we included a handwritten note on a postcard that says "We miss you! Have a great Trimester 3! From the PBIS Team." I made the Mindfulness Activities cards using the items from my Pinwheel Mindfulness Bulletin Board. I thought this would be a great way to share our March & April theme - Mindfulness - with remote students.  You can access the Mindfulness Activity Card here .  The Mindfulness Scavenger Hunt a

Spring Mindfulness Bulletin Board with QR Codes

I created this colorful, interactive, spring bulletin board for our March & April PBIS theme, mindfulness. I made this bulletin board interactive for students by adding QR Codes with different mindfulness activities. Since most things need to be touch-less right now, I thought using QR Codes would be an easy way for students to access some mindfulness activities. If you are not familiar with QR Codes, QR stands for Quick Response. QR Codes are scannable with a smart device camera (iPad, tablet, or smart phone). you can easily make your own QR codes by using a QR Code generator. You can link the QR Code to a website or online document. When the user scans the QR Code they will be directed to the link. I used  QR Code Generator  to create the QR Codes.  I got the idea for this bulletin board while looking for mindfulness resources. I stumbled upon a New York Times article about "Pinwheel Breathing." This sent me down a rabbit hole of brainstorming a
