Have I piqued your curiosity? I hope so, because I need your help. I need to build up my email subscriber list, and I've formulated a devious plot to achieve my goal. I will share this nifty little trick with anyone who comments on this post and signs up as an email subscriber to my blog. Two simple steps and you'll get a field tested method for settling your students down at dismissal on those days when you just NEED more order.
It's a win-win proposal! I get my much needed subscribers, and you get a new addition to your bag of tricks. And you know we all need that bag to be as full as possible. So take a few minutes this fine Sunday morning to help me grow my blog, and you'll be thanking me all year long!
UPDATE: A colleague of mine actually commented below and registered as an email subscriber yesterday. As promised, I emailed her my little trick. She tried it today, and I got a great big hug and an "I love you!" after the bell rang and the kids were out of the building. I'm telling you folks - this works!
