One of my very favorite units to teach, this complete plant unit is always a favorite! Kids learn about the life cycle, pollination, photosynthesis, seed dispersal and more with a 9-lesson teaching Power Point and hands-on experiments. Your class will love writing about science in the foldable flower booklet too! I’ve linked it in my profile if you’d like to see more. http://bit.ly/PlantLifeCycleUnit. #plants #scienceisfun #igteachers #secondgrade #firstgrade #thirdgrade #iteachsecond #iteachscience #teachersfollowteachers #teachergram #teacherspayteachers #iteachfirst #iteachthird

I'm a huge fan of educational crafts in the classroom. I know some may disagree, but in my experience purposeful crafts send your engagement factor soaring, reach the kids who don't get excited about much, get kids writing (a BIG bonus -even if in short bursts), and give me fun ways to hit #allthestandards. In the younger grades, motor skills development, practice with spacing, punctuation, grammar, using content vocabulary....the list of benefits and opportunities is endless! (Plus, they make quick and easy bulletin board displays.) #twobirdswithonestone See how I like to teach telling time (and craft with a purpose) on the blog with the link in my profile. #educationalcrafts #iteach2nd #igteachers #secondgrade #firstgrade #mathisfun #primaryteacher #teacherspayteachers #iteachsecond #iteachfirst https://goo.gl/nkfheF

Have you all discovered removable glue sticks yet? I LOVE them! You can turn anything into a sticky note and reuse your charts. (These are supposed to be lily pads lol!) Removeable ones are different from restickable or repositionable glue sticks which dry after 5 minutes. I've (affiliate) linked to Amazon so you can check them out. http://amzn.to/2Hr9jTB #iteachsecond #anchorchart #froglifecycle
If you're hoping to get some Spring cleaning done in your classroom over break, why not start with your anchor charts? Before I did this mine were a hot mess. How I organized them (and saved my sanity) is on the blog and linked in my profile > > https://goo.gl/YSBZgt #anchorcharts #instagramteachers #teacherlife #iteach2nd #classroomorganization #iteachsecond #teachergram

@creativeclassroom 's students did such a great job building and writing about their landforms. I love getting to see how these turn out in other teacher's classrooms! (Thanks so much for sharing Ashlyn!) I've linked this resource in my profile if you teach landforms and want to check it out! http://bit.ly/LandformsTeachingResources #iteachsecond #igteachers #teacherspayteachers #thirdgrade #firstgrade
