I Want to be a Super Teacher


In the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Alexander longs to escape to Australia. Utilize this book in your classroom by harnessing the power of Australian Flags – a super simple, literature based management tool!

It’s pretty simple – when a child is having a bad morning/recess/feeling sad/having some sort of other undisclosed mental emergency, he/she can go get an Australian flag, put it on their desk, take a few deep breaths, and know that the teacher knows something is up. This gives them an immediate way to show you they're upset, and is a great reminder for the teacher to check in with them when you have a chance.  Two seconds after recess ends is NEVER the best time for mental check-ins, so this gives children the power to show you they might need a little extra love. These work especially well for shy students who might not want to talk about exactly what is bothering them immediately, or for students who need time to process before talking about something that is upsetting.
