We would all love to have our kids have a rich vocabulary. A quick way that I love to use is to use different greetings each morning. Its a really simple way to show students that there is more than one way to say something. I provided a list of some of my favorites. Feel free to add one of your own by leaving a comment.
Isn't this a glorious day?
Good morning my most (adj.) class.
I love your cheerful attitudes this morning.
Welcome to school on this magnificent morning.
I'm pleased to be inside our warm classroom. Outside it is just frigid.
Set some time in the morning for students to greet each other. You might notice that students start to use some of the new vocabulary that you've used in your greetings. This practice allows students to not just be passive recipients of language but lets them practice new words. It also lets them develop good social habits.
I'm working on a new e-book. This one will be a collection of printable abc games all with a frog theme. There will be board games, matching uppercase to lower case games, and many more. I'm also very excited about the promotional clip-art image that I've created for this e-book. It might just be my best yet.

So I went to church yesterday, and surprise, I'm now the choir director. Now, I've sung in choirs many times but this is going to be a first. So I've been planning the first practice and have created a handout to use. I thought that I would share it so that all of you music teachers might be able to use it. This handout is a basic, what you should do before you even sing a note.
And if any of you music teachers have any ideas for a choir rehearsal let me know.
Update: 9/1/2014 - It seems there was a typo in my first edition of the vocal warm-ups and since I lost the original file, I redid it. So hopefully everyone likes the new version.
