Some of my favorite times

Every year I try to do activities with my students outside of school. This has been a great way for me to build relationships with all my students, especially those that are hard to reach. Building relationships with our students I feel should be top priority for all teachers. The famous unknown quote:

"To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world" really makes me stop and think about these lovely children in my care, daily. 

This year I took many to Braum's the first time around. They had earned a free ice cream coupon, so the adventure was very light on my budget. The students had a great time. It sure is fun to talk and enjoy them without any school stress going on.
Fun at Braum's with some of my favorite students!

January 2013 started my new round of adventures, and I was able to take 3 students to Pizza Hut with me. This time around they earned free pizza coupons, so they were able to order their own pizza with whatever topping they wanted.

Two sweet girls out on the town for dinner!
I love when my daughter Abbie tags along. This young man is not in my class, but another fun "tag along" this time. He brings a special joy to my heart!!

What are some things you do to build relationships with your students? I would love to hear!!
