Thumbs up Thurmbs down # 12

Another Thursday, another Thumbs up Thumbs down post. Read here for the back story of why I started this. 

Sandy Hook Elementary will forever be in our hearts and on our minds as we walk into our own classrooms and see our kids. We will continue to do our jobs: teach, guide, share, love, and protect the children that have been entrusted to us 5 days a week. So, I would like to give all of you a great big Thumbs up for loving so unconditionally the children that you call "your kids".

Thumbs up to Michelle at Teach123 for a must read post called Tips for Grief. This post is filled with great information to help those children in your life that might be grieving. Thank you Michelle!
Thumbs up to Stephanie at 3rd Grade Thoughts for her post titled Experimenting with 7 Habits of Healthy Kids. She has included videos, a set of posters for each of the habits, and how she uses this in her classroom. If you haven't seen this post yet, you must.

Thumbs up to Kim from Finding Joy in 6th Grade for her post called Teaching Kindness. I just love all the posters she has for her students reminding them how to be kind and what they should do/practice that day. Thank you Kim for such a great idea!

Thumbs down to all the hearts that were broken this past week.



  1. Thank you for including me this week.

    I love your thumbs up / thumbs down posts and the story behind it. Have you thought about making this a linky party? If so, I would love to link up. It could even be a weekly or monthly linky party.

  2. I agree that Kim's Kindness post is a huge Thumbs Up . . . and I'm happy to have a lead on the others. Ditto to your sentiments about the broken hearts and shattered dreams. Prayers continue to go to that school family!


  3. Thanks so much for including me in your thumbs up :) Have a wonderful holiday!
