World Gratitude Day

Today is World Gratitude Day.  My friend Mel has set up a hop so we can all celebrate it.  The hop starts here:

Frog Spot Blog From the Pond

It's an opportunity for us to think about what we have and and to be thankful.  I am thankful for so many things.   I am thankful for my family and church family.  Without them, I would have absolutely nothing.  They are my everything.  I am so thankful for the love, support, encouragement they give me daily.  I am thankful for my kids.  They make life so much more interesting.  I wouldn't trade anything for the time I get to spend with them. 
I am thankful for all of you out there in cyber land.  As a little thank you, I have a little freebie for you.  I have marked my Yakker Tracker to free until Monday.  I created this to help reduce talking out in my classroom and it really helped.  I know we are all thankful for a quieter classroom.  

Continue the hop and meet Michelle.



  1. Laughing at your title... perfect!! YAKKER TRAKKER!! What a clever idea!! Thanks for sharing!



  2. Hello! I love your behavior management guide, YAKKER TRAKKER! I am also a special education teacher that has many students who struggle with self control; often shouting out during instruction and other inappropriate times. I think they could benefit from this plan! I have incorporated many plans throughout my career, but this one seems simple to follow and esthetically pleasing. What other behavior management tools do you use in your classroom? I currently use an individualized sticker chart where students earn stickers for positive behavior and after a certain amount of stickers they receive small prizes. Thanks for sharing your ideas. Your blog is very nice! I plan to come back!
