I have laughed at this for 15 minutes!! The struggle is real, y’all. For the majority of times, I manage to pull it together and look okay. But SOME mornings...it’s just an epic fail...second day hair, wrinkled pants and maaaaybe a touch of mascara. By the beginning of the day, I look like this picture...by the end, I look Sick and utterly disheveled. I’m reminded of the day last week when I wore my bra inside out and kept wondering why I needed to go to the bathroom every hour to give myself a vigorous scratching. My students are always brutally honest...when I’m at my best, the girls will cluster around me, petting my hair, touching my necklace and telling me I look like a princess. When I look like a horror, the kids will tell me my face is red! I just say, “yes,you’re right,?it is” and keep on trucking. And then there are the days when I think i’ve got it together and I look in the classroom mirror and think, “what the hell happened?” We all have these days. But it’s good to know I can get out the door in 15 minutes if I have to!! #sometimesyoufeellikeanut #sometimesyoudont #seconddayhair #mascaraforthewin #ioftenrepeatoutfits #blackpantsareveryforgiving #schooldays #teachertruths #prek #prekinder #teacherfails #teachertalk #teacherhumor #earlychildhood #lifeinthetrenches #msgreenwoofyourfaceisred #rosacea #butfirstcoffee

I have to admit I normally spend an exorbitant amount of time planning my small worlds and making the elaborate ideas in my head come to life, however this one was completely spur of the moment. My thought process went kind of like this...
The treehouse is made of wood... woodland animals like foresty tree stuff and the treehouse is a tree 💡 I have heaps of @oh.ivy
woodland animals + fake grass + I could use my vines again 🙆♀️😁 *runs around garage trying to find all the bits* #truestory
10 mins later I had this set up. This my friends is why it's always a good idea to buy and hoard ALL THE THINGS, because one day your brain will explode with a random idea and you'll have all the things you need to make your dreams reality!
Treehouse, pond felt mat, tree logs @worksatplay
Animals + fence @oh.ivy
Bottom play mat + wooden boat @melanieshanks35
Moss rocks @daisoau

Make a toddler storytelling basket for the popular story Dear Zoo, by Rod Campbell, for meaningful story telling and interaction through play. Having a range of these multi-sensory, storytelling baskets on the classroom shelf would be great for independent play or small group literacy work too. 🦒

Our pencil names worked on name writing and cutting skills! The threes I practiced recognizing their names and the fours wrote their names. They came out great! ✏️✂️ #prekmatters #preschool #prek
Last Day of Summer ☀️
And the girls finally got their hair straightened at “Salon Mommy” 😉 after asking for it all Summer!
Don’t let this picture fool you. We were taking a moment to celebrate an amazing 5 year checkup for these two. They have grown so much and loved talking to the doctor about all their favorite things. Moments after this photo was taken, the nurse returned with flu shots for the kids. The amount of screaming and crying these two released was nothing short of insane lol. Sadie went first and flipped out so badly that Dexter hid under the table and wouldn’t come out. Needless to say they both got their shots and lived to tell about it even though the two nurses and one receptionist who rushed into the room may have thought otherwise lol.
Sometimes behind a picture of smiles can be the complete opposite of what is portrayed. People only show you what they want you to see.
I try to always be as honest and open as possible with my posts. If it looks raw and tough, that’s because it is. When it’s good, it’s good; but I want you to see both. My feed is the real me and my true life. I want you to see that even though life doesn’t always go as expected, you can learn to let the uncontrollables go, grow from what has been given to you, and rise to any challenge you are faced with.
Although my kiddos were afraid of getting their shots they told me they were trying to be brave. I just wish I could bottle their enthusiasm and acceptance for any situation and distribute it to everyone.
It may be holiday themed, but it is still one of our favorite airplane activities. Great for numbers, letters or sight words! Check out @youclevermonkey

🍁🍂Hello Autumnal Equinox 🍁🍂 (autumn color paintings and leaf drawings were from the autumn of 2015)
Building Braille! Yesterday we were talking about our sense of sight. We learned what it meant if someone was blind and then I asked the Chickadees if they thought people who are blind could still read. They all agreed that they wouldn’t be able to read if they couldn’t see. Then we brought out Braille and learned that people who are blind use their sense of touch to read! Yesterday’s stations were all about Braille. We used muffin tins, plastic balls, and letter Braille cards so they could build their own letters! #braille #fivesenses #5senses #building #letters
The science of colour mixing with different kinds of liquids/solids - oil (corn, olive, baby) milk (cow, almond, soy) water (natural, carbonated, ice) vinegar and citrus fruits.
Desde muito pequenas, as crianças começam a estabelecer relações entre elas e os objetos que observam e manipulam (se está longe, perto, é mais baixo, mais alto, mais leve, mais pesado…). Muitos desconhecem que estes são também conceitos matemáticos, e que a matemática vai além do sistema numérico. Compartilho aqui uma ótima ideia para trabalhar o conceito de peso de forma concreta com as crianças utilizando materiais bem simples, basta uma cruzeta, dois recipientes e objetos de diferentes pesos. E então, o que será que pesa mais? Tentem fazer com os alunos de vocês e depois me digam como foi.
