Classroom Procedures

Here’s the perfect way to make sure your students know and understand your expectations for them. When THEY are talking about the “rules” instead of just listening to them, it’s powerful!! Review throughout the year as needed.

Social Emotional Learning

(For teachers to use in the classroom)

Setting positive goals, managing impulses, building positive relationships, and making thoughtful decisions are all essential skills our students need. Safe, casual discussion about how to best handle various situations can equip students to be the positive, emotionally thriving citizens we know they can be.


Genres of Literature

What’s the difference in a myth and a fairy tale? What are elements of poetry? Keep students retrieving this knowledge in such an easy way and they will remember it when it’s test time!

Writing: Transition Words

(For teachers to use in the classroom)
In my opinion, building a solid grasp on transition words takes writing to a new level. Additionally, knowing when and where to use them will enhance any writer’s work. On the other hand…


(For teachers to use in the classroom)
Putting others first, showing respect and compassion. Such important skills are often neglected. Short, meaningful conversation can open up a new world for your students!

How Was School Today?

(For families to use in the car or at dinner)
So often parents default to the old question “How was school today?” and get the same old answer “Fine.” Keep these cards in the car or in your purse. You will be amazed how posing different questions can lead to meaningful, important discussions on the way home from school or at dinner!

Growth Mindset (Students) Turnaround Statements

(For teachers to use in the classroom)
Negative thoughts and words become toxic. Guiding students to take these harmful thoughts captive and gently giving them tools to retrain bad thought habits can revolutionize! One thought at a time!

Developing a Growth Mindset

(For teachers to use in the classroom)
Awareness must come first before change. Guide students to see positive actions that are bringing positive results. Give them simple tools to get them started in the world of “I can!”

Synonyms & Antonyms

(For teachers to use in the classroom)
It’s fairly easy to come up with one synonym for a word. A second one might take a second or two, but that third one is really a stretch! And now give me three antonyms for that same word!

General Writing

(For teachers to use in the classroom)
Parts of speech, figurative language, elements of a friendly letter… So much to remember! Keep things fresh in students’ minds so easily!

5 reviews for Gimme 3

  1. JoDi Harris, Cal Farley Boys Ranch 1st grade teacher (verified owner)

    I purchased 3 sets of Gimme 3 last year. I used them the very next day. My kids love them! They hurry to line up and remind me to ask them a question. SO EASY! and MAKES the KIDS REALLY THINK – even at the end of the day!

  2. Friendly Reviewer

    I absolutely recommend Gimme 3™ to teacher leaders and administrators. Growth Mindset for Teachers is not afraid to address things that teachers really think and sometimes say to peers, that are out of frustration and negative experiences. This encourages frank discussions while allowing teachers to see they are not alone. Furthermore, it builds self-efficacy because the teachers themselves are thinking of positive solutions or ways to say things.

  3. Teacher Review

    Gimme 3™Growth Mindset for Teachers took everyday issues and made them okay to talk about. It addressed the relevant concerns of teachers. It then took those negatives and creatively turned them around in a way that teachers and other staff need to think about them positively. Because it puts the words and hopefully the efforts back on the teacher/staff it builds self-efficacy and reflection.

  4. Gimme 3 Fan

    Gimme 3™ is a great product that helps with classroom and transition management. I would absolutely recommend this to other teachers. It is so easy to use and the kids really respond well to the requests.

  5. Teacher Review

    My favorite thing about Gimme 3™ is its simplicity. It is so easy to use and adapt to transitions or brain breaks. Having them in a lanyard made it easy to take with us as well.
