Every year I’ve read Jabari Jumps with my students they have loved it, so I’m glad I finally caved and bought Jabari Tries by Gaia Cornwall ( @gaiacornwall ). We read both books over the last couple of weeks and my class this year really connected with Jabari and his emotions. In Jabari Tries, Jabari wants to build a flying machine, but slowly becomes frustrated when his invention isn’t doing what he wants it to do. This sparked a great conversation with my first graders on how to ask for and allow others to help us, as well as some calm down techniques when we get frustrated. This is a must have in your class library! #TeachersOfIG   #ITeach2nd #ITeach1st #FirstGrade   #SecondGrade   #ITeachToo   #ElementaryTeachers   #TeacherLife   #TeachersOfInsta #ReadAloud   #BookstaGram   #DiverseReads   #IGTeachers   #TeacherGram   #ClassroomLibrary   #TeacherTips   #TeachersFollowTeachers   #ChildrensBooks   #KidsBooks   #KidsBookstaGram   #KidsBooksWeLove   #BooksForKids   #BookLovers   #TeachersOfInstagram

My students are definitely feeling that #mondaymotivation since they’ve started working towards an extra special classroom reward earned by filling up this compliment card! It was a FREEBIE offered by @gradesandgrace that I knew I had to have! ••• To earn each letter, my class has to be complimented, to MY face, by another adult in the school building. The first letter was earned when I picked them up for art two weeks ago and the second was earned with my AP came in and realized how patient they were being while she pulled me aside. This is such an easy way to incentivize students and get the whole class working together towards a common goal! Definitely go grab this freebie if you haven’t already!! • • • #classroommanagement #classroomrewards #classroomincentives #classroommanagementstrategies #secondgrade #secondgradeteacher #tptfreebie #teacherfreebies #freebies #teacherspayteachers #teachertips #classroomorganization #classrewards #positivereinforcement

You would have thought it was Christmas morning with how excited the kids were when I said we’d be using water colors!! 🥺 I so wish I could incorporate creative crafts like this more often. A whole class of 7 year olds respected their paint tray, took their time, AND cleaned their desks after!! They seriously crave stuff like this.

Childhood apraxia of speech is NOT : it is NOT a developmental delay that a child will simply “grow out of” : It does NOT mean my child is dumb. : it does NOT mean you can talk down to my child like they don’t understand you. : it does NOT mean you can bully my child because they talk differently then you. : It does NOT mean You can ignore it and pretend like this lifelong disorder and battle doesn’t exist. : it does NOT mean my child’s hopes and dreams are any less important then your neurotypical child. ⭐️ #childhoodapraxiaofspeech #apraxiaofspeech #speechtherapy #apraxia #apraxiaawareness #secondgrade #sahm

Second grade shaking it in outdoor science class! Students are shaking up density columns: layers of colored water and oil that sit on top of each other. You can shake up a density column all day long, but the water and oil will always separate back into their original layers! It’s a fun way to teach about the density of different liquids. 🧪 #friends1810 #friendsacademy #secondgrade #independentschool #elementaryschool #outdoorlearning #scienceclass #elementaryscience #dartmouthma #southcoastma #farmcoast

Since I love to read reviews as I’m making my curriculum decisions, I’ve decided to spend a few Mondays talking about our picks for 2020/2021. - As I’m wrapping up, I wanted to share a few of MY favorite reads for homeschool inspiration. All of these books have helped to shape my homeschool decisions. I’ve read them, re-read them, and referenced the highlighted pages over and over again. Can I pick my favorite? Probably not. They’ve all been impactful in their own special way, especially as a public-schooled mama trying to forge her own path. What I’ve learned (and am still learning ) is that relationship is always greater than curriculum, that every homeschool is incredibly different (as are children ), and that, ultimately, God’s in control of my children’s future. Not me, not a homeschool philosophy, and certainly not any one curriculum. So, if you’re looking for inspiration, grab a cup of tea and check one of these out. Do you have a favorite homeschool or mamahood book? - C is in #secondgrade and M is in #kindergarten this year. We lean towards a mix of #charlottemason and #classicaleducation with lots of adventure and exploration mixed in. Each #curriculumreview comes from the heart - they are my thoughts, not sponsored in any way. Feel free to drop any thoughts or questions below!

DID IT SCARED! Yesterday I had thrown a LIVE Online-Drawing-Workshop!  I was so nervous, and really... my hand was shaking😱😨😰😱 I think it's because when it's LIVE lessons, I feel like I cannot make mistakes.... and I don't trust technology 100%, so what if something goes wrong, computer-wise. you know?   But it went well!!!!!! I had beautiful students, who were engaged, and some  continued to draw after the lesson was over! 😁👏😮🤩😍 If your kids like to draw Manga, age 7-10, come join me tomorrow.  We'll draw a Manga style Halloween card 🎃🦇😜 Oct 27 Tuesday (tomorrow ) 4PM (Copenhagen time ) Fee: 1 person/ 70 dkk / 9.5 Euro / $11 Duration : 45-60 minuts Online Event at Google Meet Please DM if interested 😊 #googlemeet #onlinedrawingworkshop #onlinelive #onlinelessons #drawingworkshop #mangadrawing #kidsactivity #kidsdrawing #firstgrade #secondgrade #thirdgrade #drawtogether #drawinglesson #Copenhagen #aarhus #denmark

Gwen’s 2nd Grade sweatshirt couldn’t have been more dead on or detailed. Sometimes more is more & it was a happy thing to work on as the kids are distanced learning. Lord knows I had to stop a gazillion times to help with assignments. It’s been all homegrown so far & hybrid starts in a few weeks. Good thing because this former teacher mom has 2 black thumbs. The last 2 pics were her “Kinder Garden” & 1st Grade hoodies #secondgrade #fabricyoyos #hybridlearning #godblessteachers #hybridandhomegrown #sewyourstash #sewyourstash2020 #handmade #chickietails

🌟 We are Voters 🌟 In 2nd grade, we are voters! We will be voting for a new president of our school. I chose two canidates and described each of them we talked as a class about character traits and which canidate would be a better president based off their character traits. They will have to write one reason why they would vote for each candidate, but we will be voting to see who is elected next week. How are you teaching about elections? ➡️ to see our candidates!

APP-TIPP (Werbung, unbezahlt ): Heute haben wir zum ersten Mal die neuen Ipads benutzt, welche wir ausleihen können (teilen sie uns mit den anderen Klassen ), deshalb habe ich folgenden App-Tipp für euch: Number Pieces, Number Frames und Notizen (findet ihr kostenlos im App Store, Foto der Logos in der Story ). Die App Number Pieces visualisiert das Dienes-Material, Number Frames das 20er-/100er-Punktefeld und die Notizen-App ist einfach praktisch, um Rechnungen zu notieren oder den Schreibablauf Buchstaben oder Zahlen zu üben (mal etwas anderes & daher motivierend )... 🙃 ❓Nun aber meine Frage an euch: Was sind eure App-Tipps ? Was ist ein Must-Have? 🤔❓ ✨ #primarschule #kindergarten #grundschule #volksschule #elementaryschool #teacher #teachergram #inspiration #teachersofinstagram #teachersofthegram #teachersfollowteachers #instalehrerzimmer #instateacher #classroomdecor #classroom #teacherlife #classroomgoals #tftpickme #classroomtransformation #classroomorganization #teach2influence #firstgrade #secondgrade #instakollegium #lovemyjob

🌟 EARLY - FINISHER CART 🌟 let’s be real, as teachers we’ve all been there and dread hearing “I’m done.. now what?” I always say one of my biggest take always from teaching last year was to have something ready for those kiddos who fly through their work! thus came... the early finisher cart 🙌🏼🌟 this cart is FULL of early finisher activities: puzzles, word searches, color by numbers, math/reading extensions, task cards, you. name. it. I know this corner will be a hot commodity this year & I can’t wait to update you all mid year with how it’s going! 🤞🏼 + how CUTE is this “I’m done, now what?” tapestry from @shopbirdyboutique !? It was the perfect addition to this corner! 👇🏻what do you do for early finishers? 👇🏻

We gotta dig a little deeper into our writing! I made this anchor chart a few weeks ago with my little friends and let me tell you, it has been a GAME CHANGER! We talked about what each type of writing looks like and how to improve our writing. The most common phrase out of my kids mouths is “I want to do better than great!” And isn’t that a teacher’s dream 😭 #teachers #teacher #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteach #iteachtwo #iteachsecond #secondgrade #secondgradeteacher #ohio #ohioteacher #ohioteachertribe #anchorchart #anchorcharts #writinganchorcharts #digdeeper

I think, as teachers, we can all agree that this isn't what we signed up for. Teaching is 2020, isn't what we dreamed it would be, when we envisioned ourselves as educators when we were in college. Or some of has been envisioning ourselves as teachers, since we were eight. But this isn't it. Suddenly, we've found ourselves in a living hell. Let's just call it what it is. No more sugar coating. No more toxic positivity. We're actually living in a state of hell. And I'm with you. The amount of high expectations that are put on us right is suffocating. The lessons, the videos, the SeeSaw assignments, the Canvas coding, the grading (oh the grading ), the frustrated parent calls, the Zoom meetings that we try SO hard to make engaging every, but just aren't. The in person learning. The masks. The face shields. The dividers. The lack of interaction. The lack of hugs. The TTESS goal setting. The small groups in person. The small groups virtually. The lesson plans. The PLC's. The after school PD Zooms. The planning time PD trainings. The 500+ assignments sitting in SeeSaw needing to be graded. The parent conferences. I want you to know I'm with you. And I want you to know that it's okay to not love your job right now. It's okay to NOT want to be excited about going to job. It's okay to feel anxious. To just feel nervous for no exact reason. To feel like the overwhelm is never going to end. It's okay to feel like at one time, teaching was your absolute passion. And now? Absolutely draining. I'm not sure what's next for us, or how to fix things. But know that I stand with you. You're not alone. 🤍

So you’re telling me I get to sit HERE tomorrow with REAL students in my classroom while I READ a book that’s not on the screen?! 🙌🏻😍 March 16th was my last day with students. March 13th is when I accepted my new job. I have been WAITING for this moment for far too long. Are we hybrid? Yes. Do I only get half my students for 2 days a week each? Yes. Has it been too long since I got to do what I do best in person? YES. 💕 I am worried. I have a lot to do. But I can’t wait to my second graders back!😭🎉 #hybridteacher #hybridclassroom

My second first day in second grade. ✌🏻💕Today I forgot to take attendance (because duh ), didn’t get to two activities, survived recess duty without a coat, & had 2 sips out of my FULL coffee mug. BUT I got to talk to kids in person, help them shop for NEW books, ran a small group, & HAD FUN with my students. 🙌🏻✨ & tomorrow I get to do this all over again with a brand new group of kiddos. I am so tired after DAY ONE but we did it!🎉
