he-ey! ho-o! hip hop!



hello again!
title explanation:i teach first grade. it's pretty fun. anyway, 22 six year olds can get a little loud. there are times when i need to get them quiet in a quick-fast way. some teachers count to 5, some count backwards from 5, some flicker the lights. all effective, i am sure. i do things similar, but not quite the same. i (in my loud-ish teacher voice) say "HE-EY!" my kids stop and say "HO-O!" then the are quiet and ready to listen. it cracks me up every time. :)
start you hip hop over at angela's blog: http://www.theunitystampco.blogspot.com/
after my blog, hop on over to jimmi's blog: http://thestampingshopper.blogspot.com/ She's kinda bumming about her tivo, poor thing! so leave her a nice comment.

gorgeous layouts, Jen! I love your use of bright colors on the first one, but I was a bit worried that you had abandoned Kraft until I saw the second one. I love the way that you catch your students attention...you're just cool like that! smiles...
