Week 6 is all about planning and it’s one of two things non-teachers don’t understand the extent of. Not only do we plan lessons for your kids, we plan days before we plan lessons, we plan weeks before we plan days and we plan terms before we plan weeks. We plan to make resources to keep your children engaged for 6 hours a day and we plan communication to parents, other teachers, teacher aides and admin staff. We include planning on different theoretical approaches to make sure we’re catering to a diverse range of learners and we include research-based approaches in our plan to make sure we’re catering to a diverse range of backgrounds. Through 4 years of uni, nobody ever tells you how much the word ‘plan’ is going to mean for the entirety of your teaching career. P.S. After all that planning, just one small child’s negative attitude towards their education can throw all that planning out the window. Teach your children to love learning ❤️ #52teachersnaps @mrsedgarsclass ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ ∙ #52teachersnaps#teacherstakingtime #teachersofinstagram#aussieteachertribe#iteachtoo#teacher#iteach#aussieteachers#teachergram #teacherwellbeing#teacherphotochallenge#2019 #youdoyou#iteach5th#iteachfifth#fifthgrade #iteach6th#iteachsixth#sixthgrade

Spent Saturday afternoon creating these magnetic whiteboard homework labels which is a resource I never thought I’d create in high school 😂 I’ve noticed in the last few weeks homework ending up all over the whiteboard, half of it’s rubbed off or missing & it’s messing with my OCD 😰I offered to make these labels the other day & the girls said that it would be most helpful. I only did the subjects the girls have in our room, here’s hoping it makes it clear for them! The font is my new fav from @theamygroesbeck Stay In Your Lane - which almost seems kind of fitting 😂🤔

Born Mary Jane Bethune on July 10, 1875 in Mayesville, South Carolina, Mary was the child of former slaves. Mary started working with her parents in the rice and cotton fields at the very young age of five. She was excited about school very early on, and she went to a local school for African American students as a child. Being the only one in her family to ever attend school, Mary generously shared her new knowledge with her family. After getting a scholarship that allowed her to pay for college, Mary attended Scotia Seminary in North Carolina. At first Mary really wanted to be a missionary so that she could travel to Africa to spread and share her Christian beliefs. Mary eventually decided to become a teacher instead. In 1898 Mary married Albertus Bethune, who she had met in Sumter, South Carolina while she was teaching at the Kindell Institute. They had a son named Albert. A few years later in 1899, the small family moved to Florida where Mary ran a religious school. (Albertus and Mary later separated in 1907). But Mary really wanted to start her own school. Mary believed that by teaching young, African American women, the lives of all African Americans would be made better. So, in 1904, Mary and her family moved to another part of Florida-Daytona. This area held more financial promise and opportunity. Eventually, using just $1.50 and starting with only six students, Mary opened the Literary and Industrial Training School for Negro Girls in 1905. Mary made desks from thrown away crates, and through charity she received other supplies for her students. By 1907, the school had grown from six students to 250 students! Mary later became the president of the school. When her school merged with the Cookman Institute for Men in the 1920s, it became Bethune-Cookman College. Mary continued as the president until 1942. This college became a very popular institution for African Americans at the time, being one of very few colleges in the country where they could earn a college degree. It's now named Bethune-Cookman University.#teacherlife #marymcleodbethune #blackteacherloop #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #blackteachersmatter

I did this activity on Friday. Such a simple activity and only took ten minutes. I just wrote each number three times and asked the kids to show me how they write each number. We have been focusing on number formation this week so wanted to check which numbers we are still struggling with and who needs extra assistance in this area. I’m finding only working part time, that I really want to maximise every learning opportunity and not spend time covering things that students already know and are capable of. I also want quick ways to find out in my few days, exactly what each child is up to.

My students had some MONSTROUS fun building their own Love Monsters with Play-doh for Advanced Academics. After reading Love Monster, students designed their monster and created a Monster ID card which included their monster’s name, birthday, special talents, and lovable traits.

How cute is this journal my school gave me for my 2019 professional learning??😍 I sent a pic of it to my teaching buddy, having a giggle, because it’s what we’ve constantly been saying to each other these past few weeks. Rushing through learning, ticking boxes just to say the content has been covered OR spending the necessary time to ensure deep, rich learning takes place? It’s been well researched that because the world is evolving at such a rapid rate, majority of the jobs that will exist for our next gen. aren’t even invented yet. How crazy is that!?! Don’t get my wrong - of course literacy and numeracy knowledge will always be vital BUT you know what’s equally as important? Developing skills such as complex problem solving, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking! In other words - Learning HOW to THINK, learning HOW to LEARN. Therefore, the opinion I have which I always try to keep at the forefront of my mind when days and weeks get super busy with various other learning experiences: QUALITY > QUANTITY!!! Unless it’s chocolate - in that case, choose both of course!🤪 . . . #primaryteacher #iteachfifth #iteachsixth #iteachtoo #elementaryteacher #middleschool #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #aussieteachertribe #aussieteachers #teaching #melbourneteachers #iteach5th #iteach6th #teacher #teach #teacherlife

P E A C E S P A C E 🕊🍃 there are so many benefits of modelling and rehearsing the language needed for conflict resolution. My kids now come to me and say “I think we need to use the peace space” and generally once I can coerce all parties to move to the area, the repairing of the relationship takes place within their conversations. A clean slate with minimal stimuli, my little mates take turns holding the peace stone and speaking. This space in my room is worth all the work we put into how to use it !!!!!! 🌿 alternatively, students can use the Peace Space for some quiet personal time if things feel a bit much 🌱 . . . . . #iteachtoo #yearone #teachersofinstagram #restorativejustice #restorativepractices #conflictresolution #reggioinspired

Our GATE students worked in small teams to create a marble coaster. At the end of our session, they put all their coasters together into this masterpiece! It wasn’t perfect, but lots of fun and lots of learning happened during the trial-and-error process. #stem

Seven snow days didn’t stop us from celebrating Valentine’s Day a day late! Always amazed by my students’ creativity for our annual Valentine holder contest. A sampling of this years’ awesomeness: The Monster Book of Monsters (It answered our questions!) Candy Bouquet, “Feed Me” Monster boxes and lots of traditional red & pink decorated boxes. ❤️💗#iteachfifth #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #fifthgrade #valentinesday

Last month, we had our annual Rancho Day Hands-On-History field trip! This field trip let’s students experience a day in the life of a California ranchero. (This is the era when Mexico was in control of California.) Here are some students showing off the candles they made, dancing to Mexican music, lassoing a “horse” and weaving cloth.

Candy hearts and teddy bears with @artforkidshub for the win! ❤️ The kids loved making these for our kid grid and they turned out soooo cute! 💕

“Schools across the country are adorned with posters of the 45 U.S. presidents and the years they served in office. U.S. history textbooks describe the accomplishments and challenges of the major presidential administrations. Nowhere in all this information is there any mention of the fact that more than one in four U.S. presidents were involved in human trafficking and slavery. These presidents bought, sold, and bred enslaved people for profit. Of the 12 presidents who were enslavers, more than half kept people in bondage at the White House.” Continue reading via @zinneducationproject linked in my stories and on Patreon.

Today we learned all about acceptance, kindness, and what it’s like to walk a day in the life of someone else. Someone with a disability.. ones you can see and ones you can’t🙈 . . . It was such a lovely day.. I loved hearing stories from students sharing about themselves and/or ones they love. It was beautiful to witness such curiosity and amazement for the struggles others face. We even had one of our very own lead the pack in teaching his peers how to drive a wheelchair.🙌🏼 . . It was awesome! He was so brave and the kids loved hearing from his perspective!❤️ @atouchofunderstanding #rcsdchampions #rosevilleschools #fourthgradeteacher #disabilityawareness #kindnessmatters #teachermomlife #teachthemwell #becourageous #bekind #alwaysbekind #beunderstanding #spreadthelove #teacherlife #teacher #picoftheday #teachershare #teachertalk #elementaryteacher #teachergram #teachersofinstagram #teach #iteachtoo #iteachfourth #ibpypteacher #lovethemall #tiredteacher #fridayfeels

Have you used @padlet before?!💻 This week, my students created their own data sets and found the mean, median, mode, and range of their data set. Then, they inserted a GIF after self-assessing their level of confidence with this skill.

GLOWING WITH SELF LOVE 💕 • • I’m so happy that we did this activity to GROW and GLOW together as a class 😄 • • I think we’re all just raised to be humble and not boast so much about ourselves. We don’t want to be a “show off” or “conceited” or “braggy” but there are times where we really should! 😆😂 This activity brought our class together to share the great qualities they love about their classmates and themselves - because in all honesty... ~Justin Bieber voice~ 🎶 You should go and love yourself 🎶

So many terrific skills are used for building this Valentines Day STEM structure. It’s an amazing way to encourage fine motor skills through play. Children are so busy designing, building, problem-solving, and having fun to notice all the fine motor work!

Using the same skills as our previous project in charcoal (foreground, middleground, background, scale of objects, and atmospheric perspective), this gave students a new opportunity to practice and demonstrate their new technical and conceptual skills. I have students a lot of choice in this project: white vs. black paper, use of non-local colors, time of day, composition, and added natural elements.

OOPS! HEAVILY DECORATED CLASSROOMS ARE NOT INCLUSIVE.⁣ 🛑 🛑 🛑 ⁣ Decorated classrooms are a great way to make students feel safe, welcomed, and engaged. However, when shopping for that perfect decor..are we really thinking about all of our students? Studies have shown that heavily decorated classrooms can actually have the opposite effect than what originally intended. Here’s 2 reasons why..⁣ 🤷🏼‍♀️ ⁣ Let’s talk about SPD (sensory processing disorder.) SPD is when the brain has challenges processing sensory input/stimuli from its environment. This includes things like sound, colour, movement, texture, temperature, and lighting. Kids with SPD are often extra sensitive to the environment around them, so much so that a light that’s too bright, or a room that’s too loud can cause physical pain. Classrooms that are overloaded with stimuli (yes, even visually!) can evoke sensory reactions in children with SPD, resulting in anxiety, behavioural issues, anger, pain, etc..⁣ ⁣ While heavily decorated classrooms might be visually exciting for us, it can be torture for others. Next time you plan out your classroom decor, consider all students needs. Will a child with SPD feel welcome and safe in your classroom? What about a child with ADD? Anxiety? Autism? ⁣ ⁣ I’m not saying to ditch the decor! Here’s a few tips for a visually appealing but inclusive classroom..⁣ ⁣ - Soften the space! Cool hues such as light greens and blues are proven to have calming effects. ⁣ - Alternate lighting: Fluorescent lights can be harsh on the eyes. Try a lamp with a dimming option or some fairy lights for an alternative.⁣ - Moderation is key: Spread our artwork and posters around the classroom. - Keep unnecessary items to a minimum. Check out the way @room_for_seconds applies these strategies to her room in the second picture! Next time you’re shopping for classroom decor, make sure you’re not conforming to ableist ideals and considering all students. 💭

Helllooo 👋⁣ ⁣ You are following someone who use to the Queen of Excuses 👸🏼⁣ ⁣ I had an EXCUSE for everything. ⁣ 🚫I can’t make this business work because I’m too busy. ⁣ 🚫 I can’t make this business work because I don’t know what I’m doing. ⁣ 🚫 I haven’t gotten results, so no one would look up to me. ⁣ 🚫I can’t wake up early, so I’ll never be on Miracle Mornings ⁣ 🚫 I like cookies and wine and thin mints 10x so I can’t be a health coach because I need go be “healthy.” ⁣ ⁣ Then in December, I said “forget the BS and just do it.” ⁣ ⁣ So I did, and I got bomb results for it (stay tuned 😏) I’m making an income that is helping me pay off my debt, of my groceries or just save (whichever I choose) and I get to workout in the morning, which makes people think I’m inspiring and motivating?!?!?⁣ ⁣ You know what’s inspiring and motivating?! Chasing your dreams and moving past your BS. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ **Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity.

You know what’s so cool? ⁣ ⁣ Building my empire when I can in small pockets throughout the day. ⁣ ⁣ We’re all busy, but if your goals and dreams are worth it, you’ll make time. ⁣ ⁣ So right now, I’m busy chasing my dreams in small pockets throughout the day - even if that means 10 or so minutes during my prep. ⁣ ⁣ What would you do to chase your goals? .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ #iteachk #iteachtoo #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #bestself #loveyourskin #loveyourlife #dreambig #teachertribe #teacherstyle #teachergram #gradstudent #teacherstyle #workinprogress #godisgood #trusttheprocess #student #studentlife #graduatestudent #newyork #manhatten #texasteacher #loveyourbody #kindergartenteacher #kindergartenroom #kindergarten #schoollife
