There’s honestly nothing like Valentine’s Day in middle school😂 Love is in the air from the moment they walk through that door! I have to admit I secretly love it🙈 & who wouldn’t want a day to love on all of our students? Science Valentine’s are the way to my heart💜 (Swipe to the end to see my favorite one of the day👏🏼)
Ty from @cook_in_the_classroom is one of my true “internet turned real life” friends!! He teaches 7th grade life science & kills it every day!! He did a Human Body Escape Room today that was off the charts! If you didn’t know that Ty has classroom pets, then where have you been?! He even had a bunny wedding last year that was💯💯💯!! (Also in less than a week we get to finally be REAL LIFE FRIENDS AT GET YOUR TEACH ON!!!)🎉👏🏼🙌🏼Go check him out!!
When you realize you have to buy 160 Valentines this year instead of 80😅#morestudentstolove
I love this quote from Kayla over at @sweetestteacher!! Kayla is a fellow 6th grade teacher who I actually got to meet IRL at Get Your Teach On this summer!!!😍 She is such a rockstar teacher full of engaging lessons & ideas for her students!! Not only is she a killer teacher, but she also loves helping out other teachers as well! Kayla is one of the founders of the “Teacher Fitness Challenge!” Go check out all of her amazingness!!
I never thought I’d say this, but teaching all science this year *kind of* makes me miss teaching a section of reading! I LOVE reading aloud to my students & I am shocked at how much 6th graders enjoy it too! During our “study hall,” I read aloud for 10 minutes every day. This year we have read Schooled & Restart by Gordon Korman. This was my first time reading Restart. YOU GUYS. IT WAS SOOOOOO GOOD!!! It’s about an 8th grade boy who was the star athlete & biggest bully in school. He fell off his roof & got amnesia from it. He remembers nothing from his past, including how mean he used to be. Whenever I would stop reading, the kids would BEG for more. We finished the book today & the entire class stood up & gave the book a round of applause😭😭😭😭😭Seriously, go check out this book. NOW I NEED YOUR HELP!!! WHAT DO WE READ NEXT?! ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
What do you do when the internet in the whole district is out but your kids still want to listen to music as they are working on their project?! You put your phone in a beaker to project the sound to make it loud enough for the whole class to hear!😂 Y’all, my students are so innovative & came up with this all on their own!! (We tried a plastic cup first but it wasn’t loud enough) If this isn’t STEM, idk what is!!😂🙌🏼👏🏼Our classroom clearly can’t function without music 🎧🎶🎤
14 days, 15 hours, & 48 minutes until I’m on a plane to sunny & warm Florida to see all my favorite people & the GYTO FAM😭😍✈️☀️🌴💕 (Not that I’m counting or anything...)
Y’all know I LOVE a good classroom management system!! Brooke & Leah from @twoteachersinfifth have such a great idea!! Each block works to complete a puzzle! The pieces all have a different focus on them from quiet transition to everyone on task! Go check out their story highlight on “Classroom Behavior Management” & you can find this resource on their TpT! What classroom management system do you use?! Let me know!
