Some days we just want it our way! Social/emotional learning is such an important part of our school day. Weekly, we pick a book to read about recurring problems we are having in the classroom and do a book study. This week our book was “I Just Want to do it My Way” by Julia Cook. Julia Cook is an absolute savior! Her social stories are engaging and applicable to our daily struggles.
Am I the only one? I’ve had my tree in the same spot for the last two Christmases. Three years ago, I had the tree across the room. I was vacuuming yesterday and found dried needles in the tree spot from 3 years ago. Those needles are older than my babies. 🤦🏻♀️😂😂 I swear I clean, but pine needles are like glitter AND NEVER really go away 😂😜 Right? 🤶🏻🎅🏼🎄 Maybe it’s to keep me in the Christmas spirit since I’m still catching up on the @hallmarkchannel
Christmas movies I didn’t get to watch in December 😊🙃

Drop your favorite below!⠀
Made this pizza last night!😍😍😍😍 I used pre-made cauliflower crust from @shopritestores
for the first time. Delish! For the toppings, I mixed goat cheese and ricotta in a 3 to 5 ratio. Sautéed spinach with some olive oil and salt. Dropped some fig jam on top and covered with minced prosciutto and shredded mozzarella cheese. I highly recommend making this! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
strikes again! You know I can't pass up pencil-shaped items. Ha! #DollarSpot
for the win!
I ❤️ these “What If?” Questions!!
Our class will choose a few to answer during our Morning Meetings, and they help students to navigate tough situations. Have you used these cards before?? ⬇️
Getting crafty making my Pick-a-Sticks. I used the @kmartaus
washi tape and MIK nail polish. These are a great way of picking students at random for a range of things from answering a question to who chooses the next Brain Break - and the students love it 😍 #classroomorganization #kmartplaytray
Capes!!! 👏🏼🙀I will be using these as incentives for following our school rules. I am going to catch kids being safe, responsible and respectful and they can then don the cape for the day 😍 they are going to be so excited!

Do you have a morning routine? I’ve changed mine up a bit over the last few months but here’s what it typically looks like:
5:15 wake up and put on my workout clothes
5:20 make my pre-workout drink (so I know I HAVE to workout) - then do 5 minutes of meditation with the Calm app
5:25 Log onto a call to do my work session with other coaches - start by writing down 5 things I’m grateful for, 10 massive goals I have for the next year, and prioritize what I need to do TODAY
5:30 Read for 10 minutes on some area where I want to grow - right now I’m reading A Tribe Called Bliss
5:40 check in with my groups, write a post, answer any messages I can
5:50 head downstairs to do my workout, fill out my tracker
6:20 cool down, take a moment to collect myself
6:30 shower and get ready while Chris makes breakfast for the boys
7:00 breakfast and make sure we have everything we need for the day
7:30 out the door with the boys - some days straight to work, some days I do drop-off - Chris and I try to switch off
I find morning routines really helpful, and I know mine isn’t perfect but I’m going to keep perfecting it and I know it will change as I do. Do you have a routine too?

Our handwriting for our school. Fonts used Spalding font and Victorian cursive capitals and numbers✍✍✍✍✍
This is such a great strategy for a quick review, exit ticket alternative or for when you may need to deal with another situation and you want kids to be involved in meaningful work. What are some of your favorite “on-the-fly” activities? #tiptuesday
We love seeing our resources in action! These Maths Talk Moves posters help to build a culture of discussion and critical thinking in the Maths classroom, but they could also be used in so many other subject areas! Check the link in our bio to get your own!
