Moving to Concurrent or Hybrid In Person Teaching

This week, I am back in the physical classroom for in person learning! I have been wrapping my brain around all of this for awhile, and today I'm sharing my lesson plans for the first week back as well as procedure posters and a few other structures. I hope it helps someone out who is jumping into concurrent or hybrid teaching.

Bullet Journal Love

I love my Bullet Journal! If you are a Pinterest browser like me, then you've probably seen many gorgeous journal pages. One quick search of #bujo will elicit a ton of images, designs, graphs and charts, calendars, and to do lists. I love my Bullet Journal because it is so many things to me. My bullet journal is my planner, my contact list, my post-its in a book form, my scrapbook, my calendar, and my diary. It can do whatever you need!

A Letter to my Students

I wrote a letter to my class the day that school closed for the year. It made me cry a little so I didn’t send it off. Everything was sad enough. I added a piece today because we had a great (3/4 of a) year together and this journey online is a bit unforgettable too. My class this year is fun online; I feel lucky that I get to do this with them. At the same time, my heart aches for their losses as the capstone year of elementary school. It may not compare to the loss of graduation for a senior, but their young hearts are broken nonetheless. Many have waited for these special events since Kindergarten. Their life will move on for sure, but there’s so much loss tied up in this pandemic. This is just a little slice.

This is the place

This week as I kept typing the links to "classrooms" I have been missing my real classroom. This whole video chat stuff is good. It's better than email. It's better than digital worksheets, but it's not a classroom. A classroom is another home. I miss the space we can say is ours.

Surviving Sex Ed

Surviving Sex Ed: I have to tell you - it’s pretty hard at times to keep a straight face. This was never something I really considered as a student preparing to be in the classroom. Here are some of the things that have happened to me while teaching “sex ed” that I find ironic, hilarious, nausea inducing, and just bizarre. If you’re needing a laugh, I bet something here will make you chuckle.

4 Steps to Deal with “Rebel” Students

Have you wondered why some kids just seem to follow the rules and some kids just...don’t? You know those kids that really avoid doing something, that even seem to spitefully disobey you. Don’t take it personally. It’s just their tendency, but you can work with it. Instead of getting frustrated with those kids that seem to do everything except please you, you can learn to harness their strengths.
