What’s your Red Rubber Ball…
As many of you know from reading my blog, I am a HUGE fan of Kevin Carroll’s Rules of the Red Rubber Ball. Well, he has truly outdone himself with his new book “What’s your Red Rubber Ball”. It is absolutely GLORIOUS and I can’t wait to implement it into my classroom this fall.

It truly is amazing, I just love the Magic Box activity and the questions Kevin asks…“What makes you laugh or smile, what in life do you find irresistible…”. I know my students are going to love tackling their dreams and creating their own boxes of magic this year.

I encourage ALL teachers to pick up a copy right now and even if you can’t fit it into your curriculum, I think it would be GREAT to make your own box of magic to show your students. You can read more about the book by clicking on the link below.


Well pre-planning is a week away and I am SUPER excited. I hope to write once or twice a week throughout the school year. I would love to hear the exciting things that are going on in your life and if you teach, what excites you about the upcoming school year.

All the best…and keep living the Dream!!!


Love the blog title, Sam!  The journey indeed requires fuel - inspiration, heart, know-how.  And it sounds like you know how to keep your students engaged, focused and fueled on their journeys.

What’s your Red Rubber Ball?!
