Yes, it really is DON'T CRY OVER SPILLED MILK DAY. I love this comment from

The main lesson of Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day is that you can take the time to look around you. Find joy in the small things and don’t worry about things that you don’t have control of! If something happens (spilled milk) don’t cry or yell. Take a deep breath and find your happy place!  
This is a good concept to model and encourage in your students. When you make a mistake it's O.K. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again.

I thought it was important to model making mistakes in front of my students. "Oops! Let me try that again." If something we had planned didn't work out I'd say, "We'll try and do that another time." Things don't always go our way. That's life and that's O.K.

Oh Well!
It's helpful to teach children strategies for coping when things don't go right. Role play spilling milk, losing a game, and other incidents. Teach children to say, "OH, WELL!"

Life has ups and downs and the world keeps on changing, but this book by Charles Shaw is a classic. 


This was a book my students wanted to hear/see again and again. It was also fun to go outside and look for objects in the sky. Tie in with descriptive writing by having your students draw pictures and write what they saw in the clouds.

Fold blue construction paper in half. Have children put a spoonful of white paint in the middle, fold, and then rub. Open. Dry.
What does their spilt milk look like? Have them write a story about it.

I think my picture looks like two angels dancing...or maybe cherubs kissing!

P.S.  I hope you don't spill your milk today!!!!
