My Teacher Always Says

Mrs. Bainbridge is hosting a link party! Here is her description.

"We've all got those "things" that we say. What is something you always say to your students? Maybe it's something cute that you love... or maybe it's something that you heard them start to say to each other that made you go "uh oh!". "

Here are those things I find myself saying all the time.

1.) "Is that a good choice?" I typically say that when one of my kiddos is starting to make a bad choice.
2.) "Big problem or small problem" This is used when my kiddos are coming up to tattle. If they have a small problem they need to make a "Kelso's Choice".
3.) "Stop, Look and Listen" {in a sing-songy voice} Used to get my kiddos attention
4.) "That's okay, we can try again tomorrow" If one of my kiddos has a tough day {I got an email from one of my parents this summer thanking me and telling me about how her son had said that when he didn't get to do something he wanted to do because he got in trouble - it made my teacher hear happy}.
