In my room, one of the ways we utilize PBIS is to encourage a Star of the Week. This is something that one of my team mates had going in her room, and I liked the idea. Our school mascot is a train ('Engineering Great Futures') so last year I purchased a set of train-themed posters from Really Good Stuff.

Finally, I'd like to share with you what's going on OUTSIDE my classroom. Some of you may remember that my furbaby Isis had her second birthday on Monday. I shared with you pictures of the presents I got for her. Well, yesterday she ripped into her birthday bear. I was hoping it would last a little longer, but she just HAD to get that squeaker out! There was some stuffing she scattered around the living room floor (and I had bought the bear 'cause it was advertised NOT to have any stuffing) and she pulled out the knotted ropes that made up the toy's structure. It looked disturbingly like she ripped out the poor guy's intestines!! For those of you that have furbabies at home, are they 'moderate chewers' or 'strong chewers'? I buy the toys labeled 'For strong chewers' but they don't seem to last very long around Isis. I know that, as a pit bull, she has incredible jaw strength. However, there HAS to be a toy out there that will last for at least a week. Any suggestions from you puppy parents who have 'strong/powerful chewers'?? I need all the help I can get!!
