Take Time for a Coffee Break :)

I LOVE the smell of coffee, however, I cannot stand the taste of it (sorry to disappoint, Coffee-Lovers everywhere!)...So I decided to take a spin off of the idea. In my classroom, I allow my students to "Take a Coffee Break," when reading. After modeling how to do so correctly, it has become a huge hit! My students ask if they can take their coffee break constantly! It goes a little like this: grab a book, scoot your chair back (safely), prop your feet up on your desk, and whisper READ!

One day, my kids earned the mystery message of "Mini-Smoothie Day." I brought in dixie cups filled with smoothies for each student. That way, my students got to have their smoothie during their coffee break!

  6. I am the exact same way!! I love the smell, but I can't drink coffee. I do; however, drink diet red bull (I's soooooo bad for me...LOL) and I love the mocha frapps with no added whip cream - can't stand the slosh when they add whipped cream.

    I still have your button on my page...hahahaha. It is all the way at the bottom, so I don't think about it...but I like it!!

    I really like the new colors on your blog!!
