Sweep is a good story that illustrates how sometimes a bad mood can quickly escalate into something bigger. We’ve all had this happen. It’s how we work through it that can make a difference.
My students were very curious about the t shirt I was wearing in honor of #mrrogers and #worldkindnessday. So, we spent the morning reading We Are Wonders by #rjpalacio and The Kindness book by @toddparr. These books went well with our lesson on empathy and how we can be nice. #socialemotionallearning
I’m working towards adding more Indigenous voices to our classroom library. This is a great resource. Collection credit: @Heisereads vía @follettclassroom
Thoughts? Something I don’t share often is that I’m very curious about what/how systems in schools help students succeed. I wonder this because I feel very fortunate with my own educational pathway as well as my desire to better the students I teach. Our education system has many flaws especially for those who live in poverty or have limited access to a quality educational program. Much of that is determined by us...their teacher, our views, our perceptions and beliefs. #visablelearning
Our school serves several military families. In honor of Veterans Day, we read Hero Mom and adapted this craft from @mrsjumpsclass.
Fashion blogger, I’m not. But, when wearing a nice outfit helps you making through the day, I say that’s a win. Tee from @theinquirygarden
Thank You, Omu! by Oge Mora is a perfect book about gratitude. Omu cooks a stew and shares it with her neighbors who in return show their gratitude by bringing her food.
Sometimes, we may feel overwhelmed by everything we need to do to prepare our students for the future. Sometimes, it’s just as simple as letting them know you are there for them. #relationshipsmatter
