Here’s what my class is reading right now! These are some of our whole group read alouds. I also have a bin of November favorite in our library that my kids can read during their quiet reading time. What are some of your November and Thanksgiving favorites? . . . . . . #iteach1st #iteachfirst #iteachprimary #iteachk12 #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #classroomorganization #teacher #teachertip #firstgrade #1stgrade #pinspiredteacher #inspiredteacher #novemberreads #novemberbooks #whatareyoureading #classroombooks #thanksgivingbooks #turkeybooks #thankfulbooks #igconnect4edu #tftpickme #organize #educate #organizeandeducate
Motivation, for me, used to be things like: ▪️That NYE dress from Forever 21 {that was truthfully a size too small, because I REFUSED to buy a size larger} ▪️”Just lose 5-10lbs before I go home for Christmas” #becausepictures ▪️Resolutions {that faded by February} ▪️Hit my “goal weight” then once that number showed up on the scale I was like Wreck It Ralph looking for my freaking medal 🥇 . . Now, motivation is just a bunch of BS to me. You can’t order motivation on Amazon Prime. I don’t live in a constant state of motivation. Some days are hard. Some days are easier. No day is the same. . . I decided to stop searching and waiting for the Motivation Fairy to bibbidi-bobbidi-boo in and out of my life. Now, I just choose to show up. To put myself at the top of my to-do list. To show up and love myself each step of the way, with no pressure, no timelines or scale numbers….just keep showing up. Because it’s not a number that defines us—it’s how we decide to treat ourselves, speak to ourselves, and how we mirror that to our families, daughters, sons, friends, coworkers. And when that happens, it feels good, you know? How cool would that energy be if each of us practiced that self love everyday? That’s a ripple effect I want to be a part of 💕

I can’t believe it’s that time of year already...parent-teacher conferences! Looking forward to quality time with families to share all the amazing progress their kids have made. This also means we are close to THANKSGIVING BREAK 🙌🏼 #iteachfirst #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #parentteacherconference #bestclassroomever
We learned today all about tally marks... Then we searched for things to measure with our hands or feet... so we could practice to tally! 🎶 1 2 3 4 ... number 5 shuts the door! 🎶 And after that, a little victory dance! #Happykidshappyteacher #Teachingmonkeys #Jungleclass #Monkeymath #JufEvelien #Teachingfromtheheart #Littlekidshugedreams #ITeachfirst #ITeachtoo #Teachersofinsta
Up next for more measuring practice.... 🦃 {just uploaded in my store if you need something fun!} Little higher difficulty than the skeleton bones because we’re almost done with Module 2 in #eurekamath #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
What are you thankful for today? As a parent and teacher, I think it is important that we teach and model thankfulness! I’ve left this 50% a bit longer to spread an attitude of gratitude.

I’m presenting at a staff meeting next week and I am absolutely opening with THIS VISUAL! This is such a struggle and no matter how much I try to explain to others I feel like they don’t fully understand! When my students integrate into your classroom they become YOUR student as well! I am not always there to plan, support and assess everything that is happening. By all means, I want to co-teach but we need to work as a team. It’s hard but once you master it 🙌🏼🙌🏼 * * * * I can’t remember where I got this but I’m obsessed - if this is yours please let me know so I can give you credit! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #spedteacher #sped #spedclassroom #iteachsped #spedsquad #specialeducation #specialneeds #specialeducationteacher #speced #specedteacher #teachersofinstagram #teach #teacher #teachersfollowteachers #teacherspayteachers #iteachfirst #iteachk #iteachsped #ASD #autism #autismteacher #autismclassroom #autismclass #asdteacher #teachersofinstagram #instagramteachers #teachergram #iteachelementary #elementaryteacher

I am so thankful for the opportunity to escape for a bit and clear my head. It’s crazy how this profession consumes your life and it is really important to remember to take care of yourself. If not, how can you care for the kiddos in your class? I am ready to go back in tomorrow and be the best I can be for my students. 🙌 #elementaryteacher #iteachfirst #firstgradeteacher #bringontheweek #mountaingetaway #novemberbreak

“Good job” doesn’t cut it. I learned this in my college classes and will admit that, although I thought that was common sense, as soon as I started student teaching I found myself saying it a lot. Then I consciously made an effort to be specific with my compliments. Sounds like a basic thing but intentional and specific words of encouragement mean more and go a lot further with students. “Molly, I really like the way you broke that word down to figure it out.” “Taylor, you made nice gains on your math facts this week!” Give it a try or at least reflect and be cognizant of how often you use “Good job” during the day. #knowbetterdobetter #teachertip #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #iteachfirst #iteachsecond #iteachthird

With so many hardships and tragedies going on in our world, it’s easy to feel helpless and hopeless. In class, we’re learning about how we can use our individual powers to do what we can to help our neighbors. “Marvelous Cornelious” is a wonderful example of the power of one. This book is about a man who helped his community after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Also, it’s abnormally cold out, so hot coco it is!☕️🍫
I found this gem of a product off of a recent hashtag sale.. my kids and I used it for #worldkindnessday . It has the cutest pages that I made into posters. My kids wrote ways in which people are kind to them.

When you lose your voice like @hagmannshearts , Thanksgiving #fluencyfindit comes to the rescue! 😜She changed it up and had her kids play individually instead of in teams. Her kids could stay engaged and review their blends, while she gets a few minutes to rest her voice. . . . . , #Tickledpinkinprimary #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teacherspayteachers #tpt #firstgrade #iteachfirst #1stgrade #iteachk #iteachsecond #phonics #makelearningfun #digitallearning
I am having all the feelings about this girl - 👧🏻 The holidays are here and that means her prek year is halfway over - 😳 I know she is ready to go to her big brother’s school next year but I am not - 😩 It truly amazes me how fast these years go by - 🤯 Time to focus on the now!
Our kids in our class have been struggling with this. Instead of working through a tough problem, their immediate reaction is to cry and give up. That’s never the answer. It is okay to make a mistake, it is okay to try something new and if you don’t get it the first time keep trying! We always tell our Kinders they have Kindergarten Power and really we all do! We have the ability to dig deep inside, to work hard for the things we want, to not give up and to remember that when life doesn’t go exactly as planned, there is always another road leading you where you are supposed to be. Don’t ever give up friends! We hope that no matter what we teach our students in math, reading, writing etc...the life skills of working hard, perseverance and believing they can do hard things will carry them through life. Happy Wednesday! Let’s all dig deep and find our Kindergarten power and make this a good one💪🏼 #teachershare #wednesdaywisdom #teacherfollowteachers #teacherspayteachers #iteachfirst #iteachk #kindergarten #kindergartenteacher #teachersofinstagram #teacherssupportteachers #idahokindersisters #dohardthings #kindergartenpower #teachersfollowteachers

You know what’s the best feeling? . Knowing you were made for more, and finally living out that purpose. . Thank you coaching for allowing me to see deeper into myself than I ever knew possible, and for pushing me to be better every single day 🙏🏻 . Oh and also for the ability to go out for date nights with my guy and not be worried about how we’re going to pay or if we have enough money in our accounts 😖 #broketeacher . This is truly only the beginning though 🙏🏻 . Are you ready to see what this is all about? ✖️ Maybe you feel confined or burnt out by your day job 😓 ✖️ Maybe you just want extra spending cash 🤑 ✖️ Maybe you have a passion for helping others through health and fitness but don’t know where to start 🤔 . If you have even the slightest interest in seeing what this lifestyle is all about, join me tonight where I will talk about my journey and what coaching has brought me in my life 💕✨ . Click the link in my bio or message me to get into my official sneak peek group happening on fb tonight gurlllll 🤸🏻‍♂️ I cant wait to share my heart and how coaching has made me dream so much bigger for myself than I ever thought possible 🙌🏻💫
Our monthly songs and poems are not just used every week for fluency practice- we also use them for lots of mini-lessons and review application! Yesterday we went through our November Songs and circled all of the contraction words. You can find these songs/poems in my Monthly Poems and Songs pack OR they are also in my complete Just Print Fluency Bundle, which has a just-print pack for every month of the school year. Find just the poems by clicking the link in my IG profile or going to http://bit.ly/missdecarbopoemsandsongs
And another. And another. 😂 Some days I feel like just holding my cup of coffee is like my security blanket. Just trying to stay in touch with my inner toddler. 😂

In my 15 years of teaching, I’ve received a ton of feedback from parents.I have received my share of criticism, which helped me see the areas I have needed to change. 👩🏻‍🏫 But I’ve also received a ton of positive feedback.Most especially when it comes to teaching children that learn differently. 📚 Im sure I learned this skill because I have had the pleasure to be a part of the learning process from beginning to end. This allowed me to see the challenges different learners face through the different stages of the learning process. 📝 I would love to know what challenges your child has and help you come up with a plan. 📥 Send me a DM and I will help you • • • • • • #teacher #teachersofinstagram #teachers #teachersfollowteachers #teacherlife #iteachtoo #teachersofig #school #teacherspayteachers #students #iteach #classroom #classess #teaching #textbooks #iteachfirst #textbook #student #peer #classmates #classmate #homework #tpt #messingaround #teacherproblems #teach #iteachk #class #kindergarten #schoollife

Played Race to 20 today as our warm up. Focused the students asking questions to each other.
