Apparently I write from right to left now ...? #sorrykids 🤷🏼♀️ Anyone else do this when you run out of whiteboard room?? Also, I don’t have fancy teacher handwriting, and I don’t care! 😵😘 #teacherlife #whiteboard #grammarrules #punctuationrules #ilovegrammar
How cool is this window display at our local used book shop?! 😍😍📚 Also, I bought 6 awesome YA books there for only $27 for my 8th grade classroom! ❤️🙌🏻 #books #bookdisplay #booksareawesome
Today was the last day of camp, and we did two awesome scavenger hunts! One was focused on MLA format, and the other was based on figurative language! The kids had such a great week at camp ❤️🙌🏻📚 Looking forward to next week! #summerschool #summercamp #teachersummer #teachersummerlife
Day three of camp done ✅!! My kids did SUCH an incredible job with their in-class essays today! As I’ve been leaving them feedback, I have been blown away 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Tomorrow is our last day, so I’m working on evaluations and certificates to hand out tomorrow ❤️☺️ Also, jean jacket on repeat from Monday 🤷🏼♀️ #secondaryela #middleschoolteacher #iteachmiddleschool #teachersummer #elateacher #eighthgradeteacher
The kids we’re really into this Tug of War: Expanding Sentences Game at camp yesterday! I wish you could have seen their excitement when I announced the group that got second place (they were VERY excited to have gotten 2nd)!! It was the best!! 😂🙌🏻 I’ve included the link to this resource here -> bit.ly/WritingCampEB and you can also click on the link in our profile to access!
Day One of my Summer Reading + Writing Camp, done ✅ I do two weeks of my summer camp every year, and I absolutely love it! Do you teach summer school or run your own camp?
CONGRATULATIONS TO @Christibizi12 - The winner of our giveaway!! Thanks everyone for entering! ❤️📚 Wishing you all a wonderful and restful summer 😘☀️
All set for my Reading and Writing Camp next week!! I’m sure most of you don’t know this, but reading and writing summer camps is how @ebcamps got started! Jessica and I ran camps together when we taught at the same school in LA. We loved working together so much, we decided we may as well open up a TpT store together, too ☺️ *** Along the way, we tried to help other teachers run their own summer camps at their schools, too, but there were a lot of bureaucratic obstacles that made that dream incredibly challenging. Oh well! It all worked out for the best, as I still run camps on my own, we have our little TpT store, and we each found a lifelong friend in the other! ***There’s nothing quite like having a teacher friend who just GETS you and LOVES teaching ela just as much as you do! AND Jessica makes me want to be a better teacher because she really is an AMAZING one!! Long story short, you can check out more about this fun resource in our stories! Or through the link here or in our profile -> bit.ly/WritingCampEB
