My friend Terri is a bulletin board genius.
Check out the festive display outside of her classroom.
Pay special attention to the disconnected Mardi Gras beads.
The students in her class are working to complete that necklace. The beads represent how well they do each day staying in control; the reds represent out-of-control behavior and cannot be used to connect the necklace.
Their goal is to complete the string of beads by February 13th
when Mardi Gras begins.
Looks like they're well on their way to self-control success!
