Kiss Your Brain!

Ask my first graders what I tell them to do when they share their brilliant thinking..."Kiss Your Brain!"  My kids giggled the first time I told them to do this at the beginning of the year, but now it I tell all of them or an individual to "Kiss Your Brain!" on a daily basis.  It is so cute to see the little ones kiss their hands and then touch their heads.  Well now they are REALLY going to love it!  A few weeks ago I saw a post on First Grade Teaching about PorterPolkaDots.  Mrs. Walsky featured this "Kiss Your Brain" jar.  Of course, I had to have it.  Ashley at PorterPolkaDots was so nice.  I emailed her what I wanted and look what appeared at my door this weekend. Our classroom theme is frogs and blue and green are everywhere!  She also has a very cute blog for teachers:  The Polka Dot Patch.


I filled it up with Hershey Kisses and I am ready to go.  I know it will be a hit!  Now I am just going to have to have enough self-control not to eat them all myself...I say that as I am throwing another into my mouth.
Looking forward to seeing the kids again tomorrow after an unexpected four day weekend!
