The Sunday Scoop

My oldest baby is back in the nest...and I am so excited to see her again. Wow...time flies when you look back on your time with your kids and I have another one flying off...my little birdies are getting so big! To celebrate...we went ice fishing???!!? Yes, this winter hater went ice fishing to do something with as many of my sweet children. It was cold. It was windy. We didn't catch any fish. BUT...I did enjoy just being outside with my family...even if I was a bit cold. However...the sun is out and the snow is suppose to start melting as warmer weather hits us this week!

Those three birds of a feather that teach together over at Teaching Trio are hosting their weekly Sunday Scoop! So here it is...


CICO...btw...stands for Check In...Check Out...my little boy...(I help two specifically)...but one is going backwards...boy little guy! He seems to want "prizes" from school store and not really focusing on making good choices on his own. That connection isn't there. He is the cutest thing though...I have to get creative on how to reteach him and get him to care again. I am sure we can get him there...it takes time. 

On another note...I am at a new milestone...I have an even number of followers! I am up to 60 friends! I can't tell you how happy that makes me feel!  I really am so excited that others want to see what I do in my science classroom. If you want to check out instagram...go to mrsheinrichsscienceclass  and my weekly pictures are there for my families. My son was just looking at them and saying he wished he was in my class! I didn't even pay him to say that. 

Happy Sunday!

  1. Hi Renee!
    We also do the CICO system at my school. My school is a PBIS school, so this is one of the strategies we use on our kids that are on the 2 tier. We have our kids set reasonable goals at the beginning of the week and if they meet their goal, we give them visual reminders to keep them on track, such as stickers, a positive note home, track their progress for motivation, etc. Our kids really enjoy this, and they're middle schoolers! Hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  2. Perhaps a family movie night in? We do those when my step daughter comes to stay for the weekend. We rent like four movies and binge watch them all.

    Have a great week.

  3. We are short subs in our district, too. We have to "split" classes with the rest of the grade level. Which means as many as 28 kiddos in a class. So nice to visit your blog again!
