The Little Things and Coffee Gift Card Giveaway

Isn't it the little things that can truly make your day? For me, that was the case today. I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed. You know how it is...the beginning of the school year and every day life with little ones of your own is enough to make one a little tuckered. Early in the week I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. That all changed, thank goodness, and it was because of some "little things".
  • First, I had been brainstorming ways to assist a couple of my students with some focusing issues and a colleague suggested Velcro under the desk for them to fidget with. Whoa! What a great idea that she shared. The next morning, on my desk, was a baggie of putty for kneading for my kiddo as well. 
  • Another amazing feat, is that our grade level is completely collaborating with our lesson plans and it has been pure heaven!  
  • A parent stopped by my room to thank me personally for being her child's teacher. That is such a joy isn't it?
  • Our school has a buddy system in which we are paired with a "positive partner". My positive partner had some lovely shinning faces bring me a cup of coffee.
Now, you are probably sick of reading about my little pleasantries and think that I am bragging. I just wanted to say that hang in there if you are stressed! It gets better. So, with that being said. I would like to be someone's positive partner and send them a $10.00 e-gift card from a popular coffee shop. Have a cup of coffee for yourself and choose a new positive partner to share it with because it's the little things that can make your day!

Love the "Positive Partners" idea! I've been finding thinking positively really does do wonders for the soul, and heaven knows, many teachers around me could use a little pick-me-up as we deal with some political strife in our province! Thanks for sharing! I've entered your giveaway & have my fingers crossed!
