This guided reading caddy from @saddleupfor2ndgrade is GENIUS!! For more awesome teaching ideas and resources, give her a follow 😊 #teacherfollowfriday
It bugs me when adults say, that's not how I learned it in school. You're right; that's not how you learned it. But just think of how much easier it might have been if you DID learn it this way.
One of my favorite things to do when we come back from Spring Break is ask my students this question. It puts their learning back in their hands 🙌🏼
We tried dying our Easter eggs with shaving cream and food coloring. I'll let you know how it went! #eastereggs
I absolutely LOVE this classroom management idea from @thewholewheatclass! I don't have one of these little guys, so I'm going to use the printable she has on her blog instead 🙌🏼 Check out Elsa's IG at @thewholewheatclass for more awesome teaching tricks!
So thankful to my BFF, who also happens to be my Rae Dunn Fairy 😍😍😍
My husband, who's a HS principal, almost said something too... 😬😬😬
We turned our Lunchtime Learning Center (read: detention room) into our Mindful Moment room. Kids go here after recess or if they need a break out of the classroom. It's been working wonderfully this year!
Teachers and staff at my school counted down the days to Spring Break with candy! Spring Break, here I come!! 😎
Just added these pencils. Any guesses how long they'll last?? 😬
It's Peep Launching Day!!😃 PS the planning sheet is a freebie on my blog if you want to try this is your classroom
New blog post today all about my Take a Break spot in my classroom. I call it Antarctica: a place to go to chill out! 😎 link in profile #hippohoorayforsecondgrade http://www.hippohoorayforsecondgrade.com/2017/04/take-break-place-for-students-to-self.html
Friday Night Fun: this girl is helping me assemble treats from the PBIS committee for next week. One more week until Spring Break!! 😬
At the end of our research reading unit, we celebrated by sharing out what we learned using any media of choice. This student created a Google Slides presentation and a clay manatee. Isn't the little guy cute?! 😍😍😍
