Have you taught any of these banned books? 🍎 Over the years, I’ve actually taught almost all of them. ******** Since it’s Banned Books Week, I’d love to do some sort of project or discussion with my kiddos regarding this. Do you have any resources or ideas that you’ve used in your classroom? Please let me know! 😘 ******** #iteachmiddleschool #teacherinspiration #tftpickme #iteachenglish #iteachela #middleschool #weareteachers #instateach #instateacher 📸@ethicalstl
My students always love 💕 creating College Pennants for their dream college 🍎 They also serve as great inspiration for them throughout the year! ******** I give my students a blank piece of card stock with a pennant outline on it. They design their pennant however they’d like, and on the back, they must write down three things they can do RIGHT NOW to help them achieve their goal. I’ve also done this with high schools as well when I taught 7th grade. ******** It’s a great and easy activity to do with your kids! I have a free download in our tpt store, which you can grab through the link in our profile or here -> bit.ly/CollegePennantEB ******* #teachertip #iteachmiddleschool #teacherinspiration #tftpickme #iteachenglish #iteachela #middleschool #weareteachers #instateach #instateacher
Quick Teacher Tip 🍎 I used to spend my Sunday’s lesson planning and grading ... and I was miserable. ******** I’ve since stopped and have ALL of my copies and lessons completed before I leave at the end of the week. It makes Sunday so much more enjoyable! ******** I also spend my Sunday’s cleaning and getting my house in order for the week. Clean sheets, towels, and clothes. Clean dishes and organized counters. It just makes for a much happier start to the week for me. ******* Do you do the same? #teachertip #iteachmiddleschool #teacherinspiration #happyteacher #weareteachers
I am so thankful for my team teacher, Elissa and to be able to work part-time 💕 I really think we all should be given the chance to work part-time as I feel like a completely different teacher. I’m never stressed about school, I look forward to going in EVERY DAY, I don’t feel exhausted to my core, and I feel like I’m really able to have “me time” even with taking care of my son when I’m not at school. If you have questions about being part-time, leave them in the comments! I’m more than happy to share my experience ❤️😘
I love these positive notes from @tothesquareinch !! I need to start doing this for my kids. Do you do anything similar? And if you don’t follow @tothesquareinch already, she’s my #teacherfollowfriday for you this week, and she saved my when I taught 5th grade math for the first time!
#teacherfeetupfriday for me is on Thursday’s, so this is from yesterday! And yes, I’m going to take this opportunity to tell you how much I LOVE @earthbrands 😍 This is not sponsored (they do send me free shoes every so often though ❤️), but I just want you guys to know how awesome their shoes are. I never get lower back pain anymore while teaching, my feet never hurt, and all of their shoes make me feel like I’m walking on pillows. These are their Manza’s that you can only find on Amazon right now, but they have so many other cute styles on their site! Plus, they have great sales! Do you have a pair of Earth Brands?? I know some of you do!! Happy Friday guys!! 😘😘 #teacherfashion #teachershoes #teacherootd
This is 100% me. Happy Friday friends 💕 📸 @littlemissfiesta_
My desk situation during the day. #disaster But at the end of the day, I clean it all up! Anyone else? 🤣
These writing process cards are such a great idea to help keep track of where your students are with their work! This idea is from my sweet friend Jen from @two.little.birds.tpt and for #teacherfollowfriday make sure to go show her some ❤️❤️❤️😘 #instagoodteachers #teachertip #teachersofig
Nothing quite like a brand-new box of books!! Do you teach or have you taught The House on Mango Street? It’s one of my favorite novels! And teaching it at the beginning of the year ties perfectly into what I assigned over the summer and our beginning of the year Name Narratives 🤗 We’ll be using this novel a lot to work in conjunction with our Narrative Writing Unit, which we’ll be starting soon!
Love this and all of the quotes @thinkgrowgiggle shares ❤️😍 Make sure to go show her some love for #teacherfollowfriday 😘
When Thursdays are your #teacherfeetupfriday 💕❤️ I absolutely love teaching part time and am beyond thankful to my amazing principal and school for allowing me to do so. I get the best of both worlds - being a teacher (which is at the core of who I am) and being a mom (which is so special to watch my son grow up)! I try so hard not to take this for granted 💕
