I’d heard of mood rings and mood bands. In fact, I even owned a mood ring at some point in my life. However, I’d never had the pleasure of seeing a mood duster! Check this out. It’s the perfect classroom management tool. Simply display a duster in your classroom—any type will do. Use the duster to “dust off” crankiness and other temporary moods displayed by students. While there’s no guarantee, there’s an excellent chance you’ll receive smiles and giggles in response. Come to think of it, having a mood duster at home isn’t a bad idea either! Ha!
I love to discover creative uses for everyday objects—you know, like using plastic soap dishes as crayon holders and microfiber facial pads as whiteboard erasers. What ideas do you have? I’d love to hear about them. And let me know what you think of the mood duster too!
