My son gave his kindergarten teacher a book for her class at the end of his school year.


We wrote inside the book " To Mrs .... I hope you think of me every time you read this book to your classes. " We added a little more to it too.

She loved it. ( and to this day she still asks about him)


Im sure most teacher would welcome book for their classrooms. Im not sure how they would react to a discipining book though.

thinking of our teachers

You know, what I just can't get off my mind recently is doing things that will really make a difference in our schools--for teachers AND students AND families. It seems like we try to do so much that fills a need (such as providing health screenings and dental check ups and other things that used to be solely the parent's responsibility) but never really fix any problems. I'm so frustrated with our PTA spending money on field trips to the pumpkin patch and not doing anything of lasting value. Our teachers have their hands tied on so many different issues. I was speaking with a teacher and objecting to the practice of taking away recess as a punishment. She asked me for other ideas and I rattled off a list of several ideas. She was very appreciative and said she would try a couple but the bottom line was that most of my ideas were not workable because they required some parent involvement in the discipline problem and in our district, sadly,this will not happen. ANYway, as I was reading this book, I just thought it addressed so many of the problems in our school/neighborhood so I *hope* that I can find the book at a reasonable price and maybe it will be something useful to my kiddos teachers (since I can't afford a copy for the entire faculty!)

jennycherie, Will you share the name of the book? It sounds like something that I would like to read too.

Thanks!
Tami

the book title


abasolutely! the book is "Discipline without stress, punishments or rewards (How teachers and parents promote responsibility and Learning)" by Dr. Marvin Marshall. I have only read the first 40 pages but I love it already. Dr. Marshall is trying to show how to influence children without compelling them and how to help them develop the internal motivation to do good things rather than using the external motivations (fear of punishment or hope for reward) to elicit behavior. So far, I am convinced he is completely brilliant.

Being an AVON representative I've always given something from AVON from candles, lapel pin, fragrance, cosmetic bag with hand cream, lip balm, emery board, etc. in it, angel figurine with inspirational sayings, etc. As a school volunteer I do give things through out the year to help in the classroom. During the book fairs the teachers fill out a wish list and we have bought books off the list which is then labeled as a gift from the child to the teacher.

How about a homemade gift basket filled with fruit, cheese, breads or anything else you could think of.

Family Dollar is having a sale this week on fleece throws 50x60 for $3 a piece and I thought what a great gift that you can personalize to the gift receiver with fabric paint, applicas or embrodery. (I know I didn't spell that right)

I'm going to stop and pick up a couple and let the kids decorate them for Grandparents and teachers.
