Unfortunately, I didn't have a whole lot of time today to throw much together. One idea I'd had, though, was to post the "Be Less Helpful" phrase somewhere in my room so that I remember to do it (it's such a struggle for me not to give in and make the kids do some thinking on their own).
So here's what I came up with:
It's a $3 frame with "Be Less Helpful" in Raditad font (which you can find here). I printed it in red, yellow, and green to remind me of the stoplight idea I'd like to try to use in class this year (more on that later.... or you can go to Simplifying Radicals to read about it).
I might decorate the frame a bit (my 5 year old picked out some glitter glue the other day at the store) but for now that's all I've got.
I'll try my best to come up with something better for next week... maybe using that fun scrapbook paper I bought today?
