I try to smile daily. Actually, I try to smile many times daily. Sometimes, however, I don’t have to try. Some times my days are filled with smile-makers. Here are some of the recent smile-makers in my life.
This smiley cake from my student was another smile-maker! She made it herself, and I thought of her sweetness with each sweet chocolate bite.
Beautiful flowers are always a smile-maker. These were from my summer student’s grateful parents.
A classroom prepared for a new school year is a smile-maker for any excited young teacher. This year I am starting the year with a western theme. Some of my bulletin boards include “Write ‘Em Cowboys,” (a writing prompt board) “Howdy Y’all!”(a welcome board) “Wanted: Law Abiding Citizens,” (for classroom rules) “Round Up of Good Work,” (Student work bulletin board) and “Yeehaw, What a State!” (history bulletin board).
Find a smile-maker today! They’re good for a person. Better yet, be a smile-maker for someone else. Smiles are better when shared!
