When you work with people you absolutely adore, and who inspire you to be a better teacher and person everyday. ❤️
Having trouble getting your students to track as they read? Try drawing a “Tracking Finger” 😂 The kids loved this and it actually helped them! I just hope their parents aren’t mad I drew on them 😬😬😬
Cheers to making it through the Monday after break!🍷💪🏼 #ineedadrink #iteachk

Some awesome drawings by me in kinder/1st grade land today 😂 Check out that hippo! And yes, I guess an elephant could technically sit on you. 🤷🏻♀️ Who else is an amazing artist!?!
This was my first attempt at #sketchnoting with #kindergarteners! While learning about the letter S all week, we've been reading and learning about snakes. We've been practicing how to ask questions (not a small task for kindergarten & first grade!). Today, we Skyped with Melissa from Advocates for Snake Preservation @snakeadvocate, and the kids got to ask her their questions! While listening to her answers, they drew anything interesting they heard or learned. This might look like scribbles, but this student explained, Miss Melissa said that snakes can swim so I drew snakes swimming. She said that when snakes bite people it feels like a shot at the doctor's office, so I drew a needle like at the doctor. And snakes aren't warm blooded so I crossed that out. If you haven't tried sketchnoting with kindergarteners, or whatever grade level you teach, you should! It's a great glimpse into kids' brains and thinking!
