I decided to try the ‘Class…Yes’ attention gaining strategy last November and really have not looked back. It is an attention gaining strategy and I was certain that I didn’t need it. I have great classroom management and thought this was for someone who needed help in this area.
How wrong was I…It is brilliant!!!!!!
Have a go at these,
Give it a go…you have absolutely nothing to lose!
Want to know more? For more information or perhaps a video example of this approach head to wholebrainteaching.com And have a look at some of my other WBT posts.

I didn’t create the gorgeous level graphics that you see on the right in the photo above but thanks to a Tara West freebie on TpT we have them beautifully prepared for us to use.
Thanks Tara – very cute
I LOVE gingham!!
Luckily I was able to match a gingham backing paper, from my craft supplies, to each level card before I laminated them. Happy days - the final product looks effective and as I mentioned in a previous post, the Little Learners LOVE the Super Improver Wall.
Check it out here… Super Improver Wall.
- it’s fabulous.
Remember the old ones?
“They are beautiful Mrs Stowe”
and my personal favourite…
"Just imagine how good you’ll be next time! Look what you can do when you try!”

The time has come to start renovating my classroom. I am going to take a long hard look at labelling and see what I can do. Fingers crossed…here we go!
Functioning but not very cute tub labels.
(Hope you notice the watermark on the photo. Completely unnecessary but I had to include it as I ‘just’ learned to do it – JOY!)
Can’t wait to get to school tomorrow, print and attach my brand new Tub labels!!
I followed Mel’s (Frog Spot blog) tutorial to the letter and present to you below my first ever…
Oh Sad…I just realised that the font I used may be a problem. I have tried to download a different free font from TpT but I keep getting a message saying that it does not appear to be a valid font. I am now at a loss about what to do and rather than post something with a font that I may not be able to use, I will seek an answer tomorrow!
Please check in again tomorrow!
The Little Learners enjoyed making their own cute little bee using coloured pencils, crepe paper, cellophane and pipe cleaners.
Instead of making crepe paper balls and pasting them on to form the yellow stripes the little learners wrapped the end of a pencil with a one crepe paper square then dripped it into paste and pushed it onto he bees body. The picture doesn’t show the intricacy and fine motor skill required to do this but eventually everyone mastered this skill.
Naming the bees was fun too as each Little Learner had to use alliteration in the names. We had Happy Honey, Buzz Bertie, Super Stingy just to name a few.
Naturally the Bees needed a hive and when it was finished the bees were pinned all around and a big sign, “Kindergarten is a hive of activity.” hung at the top.
Looking forward to the fun times ahead!
