Where kids are allowed to lead, they learn. Allowing students a voice and choice in how they learn throughout the day, is one little way to make a BIG impact! Watching this little class of cuties check in for literacy stations today was amazing! Watching another class of Kinders share their success criteria for the day melted my ❤️. What’s one routine, you might be able to relinquish control of and hand over to kids? It’s so awesome what they can do, when allowed.... #firstgrade #balancedliteracy #kids #kidscan #studentledclassroom #sawkindersleadingtodaytoo #instructionalcoach #bestoftheday
How I’ve survived without this wireless doorbell for so long, I have no idea. This is the best. My students respond to this so well. We were in the middle of recess and I needed to share some news so all I did was ring the bell and then all eyes and ears were on me. I purchased the wireless doorbell from #amazon #iteachfirst #firstgrade #1stgrade #firstgradeteacher #1stgradeteacher #interactivewordwall #wordwall #lovemyfirsties #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #mypassion #teacher #educator #classroommanagement
Yes, for those of you who asked, I also have an Evergreen (non-seasonal) edition in my Sequencing and Story Retell BOOM Card Series. The Evergreen edition has slightly longer stories with five steps to sequence in the action sequence. It's great for reading comprehension, oral language, vocabulary, answering questions, sequencing, story retell, and MUCH MORE! I currently have two parts in the Evergreen Series (this preview is from part 2), stay tuned part 3 is coming soon. . . . #bvgslp #slpeeps #boomcards #boomlearning #readingcomprehension #language #literacy #storyelements #kindergarten #firstgrade #secondgrade #speechtherapy #speechies #schoolslp #noprintnoprepnoproblem

How do you spend your Monday afternoons? Half day sub was so worth it! HUGE thank you to Pete's Mountain Winery for hosting us today for a private tour, lesson, and tasting! 🍷❤️🙌 . . . . . . . . #selfcare #subday #dayoff #winery #petesmountain #pdx #portlandwine #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #firstgrade
So many of you, in fact... 1 in 4 of you, will sit today and ponder “why?” I’m right there with you!! Why will 1 in 4 of us experience pregnancy or infant loss? It seems so unfair at times, and I don’t have any answers. But I see you. And I pray for you, always. : Grieve as you should. Don’t let anyone tell you when you should “move on.” We don’t ever really move on, we just simply find a way to live despite the misfortune. Life continues to roll on by. And if you decide to try again and are blessed with another sweet baby, you will never forget the one or ones you lost. And if you decide not to try again, that is ok too. For once you see those two pink lines, your life forever changes. I surely haven’t figured out why these things happen- I just have to hold faith that our little bean was needed more up There than down here. And until we meet again little one, I’ll cherishing the four earthly babies that God has let me borrow for this life! 😇 : So light your candle tonight and remember all the babies gone too soon. We love you all, miss you, and hold you in our hearts forever...
These first graders made my heart so happy the way they worked and cleaned up today. 💜 They even put their paintings on the drying rack the correct way!!!!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #elementaryartteacher #iteachart #elementaryart #elementaryartclass #arteducation #arted #allstarsrisinghigh#firstgrade #watercolor ⁣ ⁣ ⁣
I love, love, love class books! In this one, I have my Kindergarteners each make a page with their favorite / most loved part of the school day. It makes a great writing center activity and becomes a "hot commodity" for checkout in the classroom library. #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #iteach #iteachtoo #teachergram #tpt #teacherspayteachers #teachersofig #igteachers #teachergram #iteachk #iteachkinder #iteachfirst #iteach1st #iteachsecond #iteach2nd #kindergarten #kinder #firstgrade #secondgrade #kindergartenteacher #firstgradeteacher #secondgradeteacher #readingspecialist #iteachreading #teacherblogger #teacherbloggers

Welp, cue the ugly crying. Noah’s class writes letters to the “student of the week” telling them why they like them. They are all sweet and nice, but this one really hit me in the feels. “When I don’t have someone to play with me you come and play with me.” 😭😭 My amazing little boy has such a natural love for others. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #noahlincoln #sixyearsold #firstgrade #proudmama
Fun Fact: this was my absolute FAVORITE thing to do in PE when I was in 1st grade (besides the scooters of course 💁🏼‍♀️). The minute we brought this out my kids OOOOOHHHHHDDD and AAAAHHHHHDDDD. So happy they love the same things as me!

Growth Mindset is probably one of the most beneficial topics we can teach our students! If they can learn to change their mindset and move away from I CAN'T, I WON'T, I DON'T NEED TO, we can guide them to I CAN'T YET, I WILL, I WON'T GIVE UP! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Powerful stuff!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Talking about growth and fixed mindsets and comparing the differences is a great lesson at any age. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Interested in creating this bulletin board with your class? Send me a direct message and I will send you the link (available as part of a unit).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #growthmindset #socialemotional #charactereducation #teach #teacher #iteachsecond #iteachfirst #iteachthird #iteachfourth #iteachfifth #iteachk #secondgrade #thirdgrade #fourthgrade #fifthgrade #proudtobeprimary #mind +heart #socialskills #firstgrade #teacherofig

Today we kicked off our subtraction with Magic of Math. If you are not yet using these units, you need to check them out. They are full of day by day hands-on learning activities. My students were so engaging and had so much fun. Thank you @stepintosecondgrade and @elementaryshenanigans for creating such an amazing resource!
The first grader’s dinosaur research has led them to a very interesting confrontation: T-Rex vs. Our School 🤷🏻‍♀️🦖🏢It all started with a question: Do you think a T-Rex was bigger than our school? This sparked a lot of thinking and a deep exploration of measuring concepts. How tall is our school? How tall was the T-Rex? What kind of measuring tool is needed to figure this out? How can we make it stand tall without bending? What unit of measurement will we use? The #firstgraders continue sharing their theories, researching, and going through a trial/error process that will take them closer to their goal... Who will win? 🏢 or 🦖? We’ll have to wait and see... #klaelementary #klaschools #klaschoolsofbrickell #playingandlearning #math #science #dinosaurs #measuring #firstgrade #progressiveeducation #miamielementaryschools #brickellschools #reggioinspired

Started a pumpkin unit in my class this week with our 98 degree Honduran weather. I miss fall, which is why I’m doing this, but it’s not the same without pumpkins, boots, and pumpkin spice latte! This book though, is simply one of my very favorites 😍 . . . . . #teacher #teacherlife #teachersofinstagram #iteachfirst #pumpkins #fall #honduras #picturebooksaremyjam #picturebooks #firstgrade
