Hi long lost blog friends! Woah---let me tell you, the beginning of the school year is never easy or smooth. I've been at school practically 24/7.

Anyways, I was approached by Smile Makers awhile ago to do a post about anything on their website. I picked an awesome treasure box for my kiddos (aka my students) for the behavior incentive I do in my class.
Look at how big it is!!! (Excuse my mess of a desk)
The first day I brought it to school, I put it above my file cabinet trying to hide it...silly Kristen, the kids spotted it the moment they walked in. Duhhh!!

The kids couldn't wait to fill up their hole punch card to see what was in the box. The anticipation was killing them!

When my first group of kids filled up their punch card, they all lined up behind my desk to take their first look...and all the "ohhhhh's and ahhhhh's" were great!!

Look at all these goodies! It was just right for 1st graders. There are little stuffed animals, kitten slap bracelets, bugs, silly putty, puzzles and so much more.

3 weeks into school and my kids are still finding new things in there every time they get to go in there again.

Please go take a look at the great website and all they have to offer!
