We took a virtual field trip to Rome today! I love using virtual tours every chance I get so students can see the areas we are learning about. They loved being able to look inside the Colosseum and now they can save they’ve “been to Rome” 😉🌏

Many of my students are English Language Learners so anything reading or writing can be an obstacle. When I asked them to simply respond to their reading I would get many confused looks. Since implementing thinking maps during my ELA instruction this has decreased tremendously. I love thinking maps for all of my students when they are trying to organize their thinking to formulate a response. They really like them too! They like them even more when they can use construction paper and markers🖍. Once they are familiar with the thinking maps we use them to help with a brief write, or any other short answer response that requires text evidence. This was from our reading curriculum Wonders, and the story is One Hen🐓.

This is one of my favorite activities! After we learn all the basics of literature (story vocab, characterization, theme, etc) and the Notice and Note signposts, my students are split into six groups. I give them each a picture book. They read the book together then do an evaluation of it. I give them a planning sheet where they can make notes and share ideas. On the first day they read and begin to evaluate. The second and third days they continue planning them spend time making a poster showcasing what they learned. They will do small group presentations to share what they learned. This is a great activity to hit many standards all at once. I require that each person write on the poster so they are all engaged. They also have to all speak. •

I finished this one in a snap. "A Monster Calls," is captivating!

Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don't quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there's a visitor at his window. It's ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth.

Few things in this world make me happier than this view. This school hasn’t had a theater program in over 25 years, and by looking at these teens today, in our 6th week of the program, anyone can see how deeply this program needed to be revitalized. These kids are safe, happy, and ready to work together. This is why we do what we do ♥️ •

More accurately: You can do a few things well or everything with mediocrity. Your short-term and long-term health and your longevity in the teaching field are not worth trying to do everything well. Prevent teacher burnout by being willing to let some things go! What are you letting go this school year?!?

Two of the most important words in my classroom!! BECAUSE for supporting our answers and opinions with evidence, and YET because we know learning can take time! Students thought about a time where something was tricky for them-- and now it's not so bad-- and shared it on a post-it note! #growthmindset

• Q U I Z L E T • Okay teacher peeps, I have always used @quizlet for flash cards and other study games, but recently I decided to try out the Live game and I was really impressed! I’ve always loved any kind of interactive review game, especially if it incorporates technology and this did not disappoint! The kids really liked it, too. .

Read on a road trip through GA, SC, and NC...this book will have anyone searching their distant past for great truths about their identity. 
Great for upper elementary readers who are reluctant to tackle chapter books when they aren’t asked to. The lyrical qualities and short poems make it a simple read with profound meaning. An ideal choice for libraries lacking novels in verse!

Brown and yellow together always felt like a 70s vibe to me. I should get a set of chunky heels to finish it off with. 👠

This year I'm looking into introducing more games into my ELA center rotations. I was hoping someone out in the IG teacher community might help. I'm looking for ELA specifically. I've heard of games like Candy Land, Jenga and UNO being used to teach math and reading skills. 
Do you use board games or any other type of commercially available game and adapt them for the classroom? 
If so, what games and how do you use them?

Do you 🍎2🍎?? There are so many uses for Apples to Apples in an elementary ELA classroom! We’ve been working on our writing stamina in Writer’s Workshop, and the red noun cards are an awesome way to spark a kid’s imagination while writing. Each student receives 5 cards face down, and they begin to free write. When they absolutely run out of ideas and cannot think of how to write their story further, they flip over a card — and boom! Instant character, setting, or plot twist! My kids couldn’t contain their laughter as their stories became more ridiculous as time went on. And the activity served its purpose - they didn’t want to stop writing when I said that Writer’s Workshop was over. A great back-to-school stamina building activity for sure!📝

I would like to introduce this year’s vocabulary team flags! Each year, I assign students to groups where they compete against the others in review games and activities. We keep score throughout the year and ultimately crown one team the champion (with extra credit as a prize). The students also come up with the team names, and I make the flags. Team Kiki, Team Falken, Team Big Daddies, and Team Salty Beaches, good luck this year :) Props to @pfeliot for this fantastic idea!

Teacher friends! I've been totally Insta AWOL 😖 I totally blame moving to a new school, the start of a new school year, and...well...myself 😜 Anyways! I do want to share some of the things that have been happening in my classroom. One of those was a project I did with my sophomores. A coworker and I created this "Where I'm From" project that made students design a booklet (cover, poem, narrative, and word cloud) all about themselves. It was a great way to get to know my students and encourage them to take pride in their individual stories. I'm a firm believer in peer evaluations, so here are a few snapshots of my students evaluating their peers' projects! 📚💡✏

Simple way to spice up a Wednesday? Let kids write on their desks with dry erase marker! 🖍️ Today my sophomores worked through analyzing a photo essay by leaving their analysis notes on the desks of each station. Tomorrow we'll make connections between what they saw in the images and what they read about life on a reservation in the #shermanalexie novel #theabsolutelytruediaryofaparttimeindian .

Tomorrow we'll make connections between what they saw in the images and what they read about life on a reservation in the #shermanalexie  novel #theabsolutelytruediaryofaparttimeindian  . . . . . . . #teachersfollowteachers  #iteachtoo  #iteachela  #teachersofig  #studentcenteredclassroom  #bookstagram  #lessonoftheday

Our culture quilt is up and it looks SWEET. I am so glad that we decided to run with this crazy idea of mine. Every kid is represented up here and it truly does show how our differences make us whole. 😍 .

Plays are meant to be seen and heard! Act them out if you can! 🙌 A few cheap props go a long way, too. I got these handcuffs and the poppet from the Dollar Tree, and I made the warrant online. My John Proctor actors thoroughly enjoyed ripping up the warrant and cursing during today’s scene of “The Crucible.” I love it when they see the word and ask, “Wait, can I actually say it?” 😂 Acting it out is SO much more engaging! If you have any questions about how my students act the play out, drop them here! I’ll answer what I can in the comments and maybe even do some stories or a blog post to address the rest. ☺️

Students are working to finish up their Community Outreach project! As we draft on paper, students are creating an advertisement for the country that they visited throughout our family road trip unit. Their advertisement will be filled with fun facts about the country and content related information to truly sell the reader! Keep your eyes out for these advertisements all around town as students finish them up and share them with the Bloomington Normal IL community! #rockyourschool

Today we had our first f l a s h draft session in our narrative unit! We focused on “small moments” that have made a big impact on our lives. I shared a few quotes with my students before we began our writing time today that emphasized how important each and every one of their stories are. I wanted to show my students that they MATTER. I wanted them to understand that the stories they have to tell and the experiences they have lived are all equally important. I was blown away with how deep some their stories were. I could feel our community coming closer together through the process and I am so excited to see where this unit takes us ✏️ The beginning of our anchor chart is above & we will continue to add to it each day #goodwriters #powerfultruestories #writersworkshop #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachershare #teachwriters #teachreaders #empowered #tellyourstory #storytelling #narrativewriting #iteachela #iteach678 #iteachmiddles #middleschool #ela #ibschool

I used the #disneyshortfilm Mike’s New Car, to review plot today. It was 4, very funny, minutes. Hearing a classroom of innocent giggles three times today was exactly what I needed this week. ✨

I had so much good collaboration in my room today! It can be easy to assign writing prompts as an individual assignment, but allowing students to collaborate leads to awesome discussions and offers some students the extra support they need. It’s actually super easy to provide collaborative moments, too! Poster paper and markers make any assignment more fun for students. I was blown away by some of the great conversations my students were having about a story we read in class.

Today we played “Read the alphabet with punctuation.” We used #wholebrainteaching strategies to read the punctuation marks with sounds and gestures. My kids LOVED how silly it was and they were so excited to read everything else with punctuation all day long. This activity was tricky at first, but really helped them to understand how important punctuation is in their reading and writing.

Theme can be a tricky topic to teach, but this digital breakout can make it easier, and even better, fun! In this Escape Room-like game, students are putting together a playlist of songs that fit the theme of the end of the year school dance. They used an online survey to find out what songs the student body wants to hear, but a glitch in the computer system has scrambled the results. They have to use their knowledge of theme and interact with a variety of text and media to solve a series of puzzles and figure which songs to play at the dance. This unique activity will require students to think creatively and work collaboratively. {Link in profile}

Just a little role playing today. Thanks to one of my awesome colleagues, @knowack32 , we have some plays to supplement the chapters of To Kill a Mockingbird. My kiddos loved acting out Miss Maudie’s House fire and one student loved playing Boo by sneaking a blanket around the student playing Scout. Does anyone else use plays or a reader’s theatre for chapter books? #secondaryela #iteachela #teachersofinstagram #englishteacher

When our local Tim Hortons has their annual Smile Cookie Drive to raise money for the Help Centre and Food Bank, I jump at the chance to share some smiles with my students and some surprise people. 
It is important to model Random Acts of Kindness all the time and show how a small gesture can have a huge impact. 
What smile are you sharing today?

Just call me the rubric queen 👑. We fully switched to SBG this year and our formative assessments (class work, homework, practice, etc) are worth 10% of the student’s grade. All other assessments (quick checks, tests, essays, projects, etc) are summative and worth 90%. This means pretty much every assignment I give has to have a rubric, so we can help students understand their mastery and progress on certain skills and objectives. We still have to communicate our grades as percentages but use the scale 1-4 to help explain mastery. #iteachmiddleschool #iteach8th #teachersfollowteachers #iteach678 #iteachela #teachersofinstagram #standardsbasedgrading

PENCILS 
If you haven't seen the latest post by @thedapperap - go check it out. I'm always very inspired by him. I have never asked for anything in return for any school supplies. Do I have pencils left at the end of the year? No. Do my kids have the necessary tools to complete their work in my class? Yes. Do they know I care? I sure hope so. And I dont feel overwhelmed by trying to keep track of a $0.03 pencil. I think I have enough keep up with- like kids taking field trips to the trash can every 5 min. 😆

Classes spent the day out of the classroom and in the hallway creating character maps for different characters in the The Kite Runner! I can’t wait to share their finished products tomorrow! We had lots of laughs at their terrible tracing skills. 🤣

Students created ads for their Reading and Writing Partners.  Today the students walked around looking at the Reading Partner ads. They selected their top three choices. -
-
-
Tonight I will use their lists and the Google Reading Survey to pair the students for our first Reading Unit. -
-
I am extremely impressed with the thought that went into who they are as readers and students, and what they want in their partner. •

Rest days are weird. Not training for my next race (yet) is weird. ▫️ But my body deserves a break so I’m taking full advantage of one of my three rest days this week.▫️ Now time to @kttape up my knee to help it recover from Saturday’s race.

This was NOT my original idea. If you know who did it first, let me know so I can give them credit. But our hallway needed something encouraging for K-12 students. I love the positive messages and the Scriptures that we found to go along with them. We all need a little encouragement, right? EDITED***Found the original idea!! It is from @texaslonestarteacher, and it is in her TPT store. Search “Be the Change Bulletin Board set!” 👍🏻

Guys, that little unblinking, insane gleam in my eyes? Proof it has been a WEEK.

My head feels like it’s going to explode from trying to remember everything I need to get done, on top of my regular planning and grading. I’m trying to keep my breaking point at bay by not taking too much work home, but that stresses me out too!

How do you keep up a normal-ish work-life balance??
