Guest blogger ~ Vera

Hi! First, I'd like to wish a very Happy Blog Birthday to Kelli!
I am beyond excited to be a guest blogger today!  I am super new to the world of blogging and I am learning as I go.  This is my very first guest blog post so please excuse any awkwardness!

A little about myself:
I started teaching six years ago at a little red school in Austin, Texas.  I have taught Kinder for 5 years and I taught first grade for one year.  About three years ago, my school became a dual language campus.  Students at my school learn both English and Spanish.  It's pretty amazing and has been a wonderful experience.
A little over a year ago, I met my boyfriend Mr. Roboto.  He is an engineer and loves anything that deals with robots!  In January, he found a new job that relocated him to Boston, Massachusetts.  And although my family and friends are here in Texas, I will be joining him at the end of July!

We found a beautiful place in Rhode Island and I found a job teaching Kinder in Bedford, MA.

So I started a blog a little over a month ago. I thought it would be a great way to keep in touch with family and friends.  Also blog would help me process my thoughts and practices as an educator.

Like many of you, I am ADDICTED to Pinterest.  It's helped me learn great ideas, find adorable crafts, make delicious treats, and become better organized.  You can follow me by clicking here.  One way I've become better organized is by revamping my behavior calendars.  Previously, parents would check and sign students behavior calendars to see what kind of day their child had at school.  But I felt like something was missing.  Although parents knew what a green, red or blue day meant, I felt the specific details of the day were a big unknown.  So, after hours of blog stalking and Pinteresting (it's totally a verb!) I accumulated tons of ideas and came up with this:

The codes at the bottom provide an opportunity for teachers to let parents know specifics about their child's behavior.  I know that there aren't any codes for positive behaviors.  I typically send something home for positive behaviors (card, reward, etc.) and didn't think a code was necessary.
In celebration of my very first guest blog post, I will send you your very own set of behavior calendars for the new school year.  All you have to do is click my button below, become one of my fabulous followers, and leave a comment with your email address under today's post and it's all yours.  The first 5 to comment will get a little extra surprise!

This has been a fantastic experience.  Thank you Kelli for an opportunity to share!  I had a lot of fun!
Wish me luck on my BLT adventure!

Bedford, Love, and Teaching

Wow! LOVE the freebie behavior calendars...such a time saver! Thank you for sharing with us, Vera! Good luck with your move! :)

I'll be back next week with Chapter 5 in the Daily Five book study and the next part in the Let's Get Organized series: Daily Five materials! 

Enjoy your weekend! :)

I used a monthly behavior calendar for the first time last year. I switched over from a weekly report (which was too much paper and too much time)...I LOVED it! I would love to have a copy of yours to compare "codes"...Thank you!
