Locker Fairies Freebie

If anyone ever says that kids don't like to come to school, have you watched them come in from recess? I noticed today that many were running moving as fast as they could to get into the classrooms! So if they're scooting in so fast, they must love us and love school. . .  .

I'm  sticking with that thought . . ..

But then watch the teachers as they are returning from lunch. . . . we are all just strolling along and we'll get there when we get there! Yup! We are just as excited as they are to get back into the classroom. We just show it differently!

At our school we have something called Locker Fairies. Locker Fairies leave things in lockers everyonce in a while to only a few children. It's always a surprise and it's usually something that child really needs. We (yes, the teachers or other adults at our school are the Locker Fairies, but shhhhhhh! don't tell anyone!) put things like books (if they say they don't have many books in their homes), school supplies, fun things, socks, coats, and even P.J's. We listen to what the students are saying and if we notice a child who is in need of something, one of us will take care of it. We also stick one of these attached signs on the items, so they know where the stuff comes from.


There are times when those who don't get a surprise say they want something from the Locker Fairy and we just say, that WE want the Locker Fairy to visit us too!

It has been such a heart warming thing to share with our students that I thought you too might want to do this with your students. Please grab the Locker Fairy sign here. You don't need to log in, it's just a pdf file.

If you grab it, let me know please.

And now on to the Bachelor! My favorite reason for Mondays!
