Conscious Discipline - Part 1

I did it! 
I did it! 
I FINALLY bought the book!

It's not here yet. =(
Heather has been sharing so many amazing things about this book. She is an amazing, incredibly sweet teacher that I want to grow up to be like.  If you have not met Heather, you simply must!!! 

Hurry... go... I will wait here.

Heather's heart

Did you come back yet? 
Isn't she amazing?

I stop into visit whenever I feel like I need a hearty dose of inspiration or a kick in the pants for being a whiny teacher. She makes me remember that being a teacher is a blessing and an honor.

So I headed over to Amazon.... my favorite online place to shop and while they had the book it was EXPENSIVE! I just knew it had to be cheaper elsewhere and guess what I found!???

A CONSCIOUS DISCIPLINE WEBSITE!! Jackpot! This is the cheapest place to get the book... it was $29 with shipping and I am sure it will be so worth it. But guess what else I found??

YES! Webinar Videos!

They are FREE and there is seven of them. If you ever wanted to know more about Conscious Discipline this is the place to start. This really goes with my focus of wanting to learn more about the brain. Not just to help my son but my students as well. 

This website has SO many resources! Some are free some you have to purchase but I never knew there was so much involved with this. I can't wait to get the book and start reading.

This was one of my favorite features - Sherbert's Classroom. It really takes you inside to show you the various components of this classroom management strategy.

OH! And this is not just for teachers but parents too! We can recommend this to our parents who ask us for parenting advice. WOW! I am just so amazed and excited.

Did you know about this?? With so many of us planning on reading this book over the summer - should we do a book study? Maybe we can get Heather to help us out with it?

I wrote about the Introduction to this book on Monday. Here is the link.

You are so sweet Misty! I might bookmark this post and come back and read it when I need a dose of encouragement! =)

You will love the book when it gets here. The little videos are great too...Thank you for reminding me about them. I love Shubert and his books are great read alouds because they use so much of the language I use and teach the kids.

I'll be back with a post this week so stalk back....I mean check back! =)

Bloggy blessings and hugs to you,

Heather's Heart

Oh my gosh! Dr. Becky Bailey is amazing!I had the priviledge and pleasure of taking her Conscious Discipline Institute for a week in Orlando and it was probably one of the most incredible trainings that I had ever attended. You will love the book too! It has been a number of years since I have gone and could sure use a refresher especially since I am teacher older grades now. I need a fresh perspective with them in mind. My kiddos loved telling me last year when I needed to take a STAR lol!

I just got my book in the mail this week! I had the same experience...checking on AMazon and then finding it directly on their site. I didn't know about the webinars....Thank you!

It's on my summer reading list too. I heard Becky Bailey speak at a conference recently and a lot of what she is saying made sense to me. We have a tough group coming up next year-so I want to be as prepared as possible! :)
