Need an Earth Day activity? Every student at my school made a leaf in their Family Group (read more about those using the link in my profile). On the leaf, kids wrote one way they can help the Earth. Then we hung them up on this tree in the hallway 🌎🌍🌏🌳 http://www.hippohoorayforsecondgrade.com/2016/11/building-school-wide-community.html
Yesterday we had a donut and chocolate milk party. It helped to make the math test a little more bearable 😊
THIS JUST IN!! Binder clips also look cute in your hair! 🤣
“Mrs. Nerby! Did you know some snakes FART?!” 😂😂😂 I love conferring with kids. This Little Love was able to take that fun fact, dig deep, and infer about WHY snakes fart. See? We can laugh and learn at the same time! 🙌🏼
We are beginning our Social Issues Book Clubs this week, so we started by making a list of different social issues. As kids read today, I told them if they thought of another, to write it on a sticky note and put it on the chart. I think we have a great start! 😊
Even when I was wearing my bright yellow safety vest, I still got pummeled in the head with a kickball. Good thing it wasn’t muddy! #snarkyteacherquotes
Getting ready for state testing... 😕 #ijustwanttoteach #testprep
I was having a conversation with a colleague yesterday about why her level D reader was struggling with listening to a level R read aloud. Did you know read alouds should be only 1, maybe 2 text bands higher than your readers? No wonder so many of my 2nd graders struggled when I read The Tale of Desperaux to them!

Terrace Town was a WHIRLWIND today!! I had all these grand plans to take in-action photos and Instastories. NOPE. Scroll through to see the finished product and some close ups. The kids did an AMAZING job!!! 😍😍😍
If you’ve been watching my Instastories over the last few weeks, you know we’ve been hard at work on our 12’x16’ box city. Well tonight, my team teacher (and the music teacher) transported “Chesbyville” to downtown Madison. Tomorrow we bring our classes to set it up and put on the finishing touches!
My kiddos LOVE playing Kaboom!
