Picked up the cutest Mary Poppins book at the airport this last weekend!  It is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever seen! 
Started reading it to my class today and they can’t get enough....so let’s just say we’ll be reading it a lot this week!
I also found it on Amazon and linked it for you in my profile (not an ad)

The students were pumped to come into the gingerbread house to read and learn about The Candy Bomber using @wildthingslearn Gingerbread activity bundle. We only had one lone parachute deliver the candy safely. (I’ll be honest... by the looks of it, I didn’t think it was going to be successful. But that baby glided the candy down and landed beautifully!) Students worked hard on perimeter and area tasks to earn tickets for items they will need to build their gingerbread house Wednesday.  Ended this fabulous Monday with our faculty and staff Christmas party. I’m so blessed to get to work with the people I do and to get to teach the students I do.  #grateful #gyto #setthestagetoengage

We wrapped up our learning on animal life cycles the first week of December and I forgot to post how proud I was of my kiddos. They gave incredible, detail-filled, informational speeches on their learning to our entire class with no fear. Also, our audience members were so silent and respectful that you could have heard a pen drop. I may have teared up and sobbed later. #myteacherheart #imnotcryingyourecrying #iteachsecond #setthestagetoengage #tnunitstarter

Today was Grinch Day at preschool and it was SO fun to see the kiddos faces as we ate our grinch snack, watched the original grinch cartoon, took pictures by a big giant grinch cutout and played a grinch game to recall parts of the story 💚😍💚😍 So in the spirit of grinch day I thought it would be fun to share a “grinch” diffuser blend for uplifting any grinchy moods 😉💚 ➕4 Drops Orange
➕3 Drops Frankincense
➕2 Drops Cedarwood

If you have the Desert Mist Diffuser, turn on with the green light mode to make it even more festive 😍

Captivated by the writing process! 🤩 Today we were lucky enough to have a real life editor come and tell us about the publishing world and the process of having a book published! Thank you @theabramsfamily! ❤️ .

It’s not Christmas break yet! :-) Holidays Around the World—Mexico and the Netherlands! @doinkapps #iteachsecond #setthestagetoengage #holidaysaroundtheworld #techintheclassroom #teachersofinstagram
Bottle flipping to collect data = engagement!  The students collected data from the whole class, developed a line plot, and created 5 questions for another classmate to answer.  Great day in math!  Thanks @adventuresofmssmith_ for the amazing idea and resource!

Interpreting remainders has never been so fun!  Thanks @missgstable for creating a @goosechaseapp review for all of fifth grade.  Students solved division problems with interpreting remainders and had some extra fun answering questions about their teachers.  They even continued the game through recess!! #kidsdeserveit #relationshipsfirst #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfifth #iteach5th #teacher #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #getyourteachon #setthestagetoengage
TEAMWORK•ENGAGEMENT•RIGOR// All the reasons why I love to do breakouts this time of year! During our Grinch Day, my kiddos worked hard reviewing reading skills we have been working on all semester and they rocked it. They loved that they got a little treat at the end! To see more about this breakout, click the link in my bio.💚❤️

Awesome day celebrating our student's successes with their letters/sounds/beginning sounds today! Life size candy land was a HUGE hit 🍬 The teacher bestie made this awesome candy land review game for the smart board. You can find it in her tpt store @kindermorey . The entire thing cost about $6, but the kiddos were obsessed! #setthestagetoengage #kindergartenclassroom #happyclassrooms #teacherlife #alphabetgame #teachersofinstagram #teacherfriends #teacherspayteachers #teacherbesties #engagedstudents #iteachk #kindertribe #kindergartenteacher #teacherideas

Here is a peek at the Winter Wonderland Room Transformation. I’ll share more pictures tomorrow! Time for bed for this tired teacher.  #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #roomtransformation #winterwonderland #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard
That sneaky Grinch tried to steal our Christmas Magic! Luckily we were able to find the problem and create a solution! We need that Grinch’s heart to grow, grow, GROW! #grinchday #merrygrinchmas #savetheelf #peinepride #firstgrade #setthestagetoengage
Another one of our Class of 2018 graduates, @math_with_ms.kauffeld at Pendleton ES, continues to blow my mind. She partnered with the 6th grade math teacher at La France ES to bring the game of Battleship to life for their students. With a little @google Hangouts magic, the classes had a chance to graph, compete, and sink ships. Truly an incredible way to maintain engagement during the antsy week before Winter Break!

Yes, this is the same Ms. Kauffeld who allowed me to join her in transforming the science lab into a crime scene for her students back in October (check out the pics). If you believe new teachers have to wait to use their #MAGIC, you're wrong. Megan is a great example of how to push yourself while learning the ropes and building the right connections to be great ASAP. Way to go, Megan!! #teachersfollowteachers #iteach #newteachers #preserviceteacher #getyourteachon #iteachmiddleschool #setthestagetoengage #teachersofinstagram

Oh what fun we had visiting Santa’s workshop at the North Pole today! It was a day filled with Christmas cheer, reindeer relays, blend gift bags, Santa letters, budgeting our Christmas list, shopping for toys and building a Christmas tree. #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard #ivegotthemagic @courtycourt12

Who else uses Reflex for math facts? My students are OBSESSED! Plus, we’ve only been using it for a few weeks and their fluency has already skyrocketed! 10/10 recommend! 👍🏼 @elreflexmath #teacherlife #thirdgradeteacher #iteach #iteachthird #thirdgrade  #iteachtoo #teacherspayteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachers #teachertribe #teachersfollowteachers #tpt #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard

My 5th graders and I made a giant “food web” for our ecosystems unit today and it was SO much fun! We started with decomposes and tossed around a ball of yarn yelling out animals till we got to the top level consumers. It was a great visual and the kids had an absolute blast! 🐻🐹🦊🦁🐮🐴🐝🦇🐜🐢🦀🦓🐂🦒🐏🐁🐿🦔

💥Classroom transformations- let’s talk about it! It’s been about three years since I did my first classroom transformation and let me tell you - like with anything- they get better (and easier) with experience! 😅🤷🏻‍♀️😍😏💪🏼🤗
.
.
.
💥Some of the transformations I’ve done are: the North Pole (most recently), growth mindset/construction theme (earlier this year), safari/jungle theme, handwriting fairy/magical, superhero theme, and camping theme! ⭐️✨✨✨
.
.
.
🤗Tips for doing your own class transformation: ✅Start with a mini transformation (pick a section of your class to cover or decorate)!🤗
.
✅Create a sign up genius that tells your parents your goals of the transformation and how it’s connected to their child’s learning!🤗
.
✅Ask for donations of materials and sweet treats/snacks to go along with the theme! I have had lots of success with this and it helps me to not be doing tons of out of pocket spending!🤗
.
✅Pick a Thursday night to transform your room. I like to hold my transformations on Fridays because (in my opinion) they are tiring! The students are extra excited as are you and I love going all in and then having the weekend to reset/relax and recover! 🙌🏼✨❤️😜
.
.
.
✅Have you done a classroom transformation before and if so what have you done?! Let me know below 👇🏼or tag someone who would find this helpful/inspiring ❤️🤗!

This may be my favorite room transformation yet! Our entire hallway has been turned into a NASCAR racetrack for the week! Today we learned some interesting facts about race cars and drivers, worked together (like a real pit crew) to solve a STEM challenge, and reviewed our place value skills while rotating through five different place value pit stops! More racing fun to come tomorrow! As always, thank you so much to @elementaryshenanigans and @stepintosecondgrade for the inspiration! #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard #thirdgrade #iteachthird #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig

‪Day 1 of our Dinosaur Room Transformation! We began the process of creating our own Dinosaur World by researching, measuring and designing the layout of our park. We ended the day by digging through amber fossils, aka jello. They LOVED it! Can’t wait for Day 2! 🦖🦕 Thanks for the inspiration @getyourteachon @elementaryshenanigans @_wadeking 😍

Last Friday was so much fun! We had a PJ day and did a book exchange in class 📚Each student brought in a brand new book that was wrapped up like a present 🎁 The kids sat in a circle as I read Olive the Other Reindeer 🦌 Every time I said the word “Olive” students had to pass their book to the left! At the end, everyone opened up a brand new book that they got to take home 🙌🏼 I’m going to miss these sweet faces over break but I’m also going to enjoy not setting an alarm for 3 weeks! 😴

With 5 days to go until winter break and attention spans at an all-time low, I knew I had to use all of the tricks in my teacher bag to keep them engaged. Enter Judge Derks--gown, gavel, Law and Order music, glasses and all.  I rearranged my classroom and we had a good old fashioned mock trial for the narrator of “The Tell-Tale Heart”. .
.
.
Today we heard opening statements and the arguments for both the prosecution and defense. Tomorrow we hear the closing arguments and our jury begins deliberation. And their arguments are 🔥.

A New York City shopping spree without ever leaving the classroom! Students were practicing their decimal skills by shopping their way through Gimbels (yay Elf), Times Square gift shop, the World’s Best Coffee Shop, going to see a broadway show (Elf- of course), going to the top of the Empire State Building and going skating in Rockefeller Center. We definitely had a blast today! @shaping_future_mountaineers @mylanpatriots #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #mylanpatriots #teachersofig #buddytheelf #ilovemyjob

Well today as a teacher, I failed. Like legit failed each one of my students. I’ll be the first to tell you...I’m the farthest thing from perfect and I’m okay with that. Today I learned a hard lesson and had to swallow my pride.

A few weeks ago someone told me, “Don’t limit your future expectation on your past experiences”. Last week I was teaching my first graders something and had an ugly thought. “Man, I wish they were older, then they would get it.” (Yes, my thought should have been....change the way you teach it and they could get it.) Then this weekend I watched @truetalesofateacher instastory about #breakoutedu in the classroom. I laughed and thought. There is no way. My kids cannot do that. Then I woke up on Saturday  and heard “when you limit someone you are a hindrance”. I began to repeat limit. Limit. Then I screamed oh my gosh! IM LIMITING MY KIDS. I limit my students because they are first graders. Then I knew I what I had to do. I knew my first graders deserved this. They deserve a chance to have every limit taken away. They deserve to soar. How dare I, the one who is suppose to give them tools to soar, bind them by my limitless attitude. NOT OKAY. So today my first graders did a breakout and KILLED IT. I’ve never seen them show team work, resilience, and excitement like today. 
It is never okay to limit people! But we do it all the time. Oh, that’s a first year teacher....oh that child has autism...oh that’s a drug addict... oh that’s a single mom...oh that child has misbehaved everyday....oh that’s a young dad....oh....oh...oh IS NEVER ENOUGH TO LIMIT WHAT GOD CAN DO THROUGH AND FOR SOMEONE. If it wasn’t for a high school English teacher and others who took limits off of me, I would never be who I am today. We need to quit limiting those around us  by what we see and we need to expect what we cannot not see. We serve a God with zero limits...but we tend to limit the people who serve Him. Today I had to eat a huge pride pill. I had to realize I was failing my kids because I placed limits on them. 
I don’t know who you are limiting...but how dare you? People deserve people who encourage, push, and pave the way for their success.
Well today as a teacher, I failed. Like legit failed each one of my students. I’ll be the first to tell you...I’m the farthest thing from perfect and I’m okay with that. Today I learned a hard lesson and had to swallow my pride. A few weeks ago someone told me, “Don’t limit your future expectation on your past experiences”.

We started our day wish some cider and chef hat designing! #iteachsecond #setthestagetoengage #coahomaelementary #gingerbreadbakery #sweetestdayoftheyear
I mean, the cuteness factor of this group was off the charts! Have you done a break out in your classroom? I answered a lot of questions in my stories today and showed you how I set up for a break out. Go check it out if you are wanting to try but needing a little extra help. I will turn it into a highlight story if you need to refer back to it as well. #setthestagetoengage

Four days left until break! 🎉 What activities do you have planned during this week? To keep students engaged and on task, we will be doing an escape room, creating ugly sweaters and creating Adobe Spark videos.

Really proud of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teams at Pettit. They did a unit on The Nutcracker and are ending the unit this week with room transformations. A lot of time and work went into making this happen! #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard #901ohana

Today's Excavation experienced by PERIOD FOUR! This truly was a unique opportunity for our 6th graders! I loved seeing them light up as they uncovered an artifact, a bone or grave good! Catch my story for more coverage!

Just 5 going on 16... I am in LOVE with the way these ornaments turned out for our parent gifts! Swipe left to see 2 different ideas for the trees. I had the kids paint 6 popsicle sticks red and we went out to the playground to a little play car to capture them “driving”. We traced our hands and the kids cut the trees out themselves and decorated them to look like a 🎄. We give each parent a poinsettia but this is something that will last and be fun to pull out every year. This time of the year is overwhelming but so magical. I overheard my students telling each other how 🎅🏽 gets in to each of their houses on Christmas Eve. Do you do a parent gift? I would love to hear about it!

Today started our Holidays Around the World Adventure🌎. We traveled to Mexico and learned all about how they celebrate Christmas🎄! I do this every year, but it’s my first time doing it big! I’m most excited about their books I put together where they research and show off their skills! After finishing their research today they got to make piñatas and they turned out amazing!🙌🏼 Hanging on by a thread of sanity, but we are going to survive till break!👌🏼 We will see where tomorrow takes us..🗺 #firstgradeadventures #setthestagetoengage #bethewildcard #holidaysaroundtheworld #christmasaroundtheworld #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers

Venti coffees and Buddy the elf, that’s what the Monday before winter break was filled with. Well, that and constant chatter...

To help calm the chaos of this week I am having my students complete a holiday traditions flipgrid. I have a drafting sheet and rubric that will be posted for tonight’s 2nd day or freebies! Stay tuned ✨

Thanks @aperfectblendteaching for the adorable elf idea 💡

We have 3 more days until Christmas break starts! I have tired to fill our days with lots of fun games reviewing a bunch of skills from the past few weeks. I love escape rooms and my kids have done a couple different versions. What I love is this is self paced and has the fun “detours.” My kids loved the “detours.” Thanks @cootiesandcuties for a wonderful resource to help with these crazy last few days.
.
.
.
Also this resource came with math pages already for 2nd and a version to edit. I used half of the ones provided and the other half I made myself. .
.
.
Also youtube for fire burning and Christmas music is my favorite thing. I really thinks it helps calm the kids.

We did a little Grinch themed escape room today! We reviewed summary, theme, characters feelings, cause and effect, and inference! Everyone escaped the room throughout the day, but we had two amazing teams who tied for first! #setthestagetoengage #secondgrade #escaperoom #merrygrinchmas #iteachsecond #theacademyatcoahoma @peaceloveandlearning
This paper is all crumpled and to some that might look like a problem. But to me...I just saw instant engagement in this activity as I gave them 1 minute to ball their papers up and have a snow ball fight. And boy did they work hard to get it complete and correct so they got to get another activity sheet for a 2nd snow ball fight! That’s right...they were asking for more work...two days before Christmas break!!! #setthestagetoengage #getyourteachon #evenrightbeforebreak #iteach5th #iteachtoo #instateacher #igotthis💪

Keeping the kids engaged with an Escape the 80s day!!! Excited to see the fun! #setthestagetoengage #escapethe80s
Today was SO much fun!! I’m gonna be honest—I do NOT want to be at school this week. So to make it a little more bearable, I’ve planned some pretty exciting activities for my class to complete this week so I can make it to Friday at 4:00. 🤞🎄❤️ Today for Monday Funday, we became elves working in Santa’s workshop and had to put together math puzzles for him. It kept them incredibly engaged and 90% of my class begged to have indoor recess just so they could continue! 👍🎉😍 Check it out in my InstaStory! #classroomtransformation #iteachmath #teacherlife

We made gingerbread houses in 4th grade today and it was epic! .
.
.
Students had to “purchase” their materials and earned “snowballs” (currency) by solving math problems around the room. Each problem was worth a different amount of snowballs. .
.
.
We reviewed all the math skills we’ve learned so far this year- place value, rounding, subtraction, multiplications and division. A huge mess was made but tons of fun and learning was had by all💛🧡

It’s not what you say to everyone else that has the most power, but rather what you whisper to yourself. We have learned to celebrate the success of others yet feel modest of our own. Many of us don’t lend the same level of grace to ourselves that we would to someone else. We read a lovely book to our students today about the importance of showing kindness to yourself, in addition to others. Tend to your thoughts with care dear friends. They have the power to grow weeds or flowers. 🌾🌻

Welcome to the Prairie Trace Bakery, home of the world famous Synonym Rolls! 
These bakers were put to the test pairing our Synonym Rolls back together after they got all mixed up!

Survived the first day of 9wks Test! Yes a week away from Christmas and it’s District Testing. However we did get our cute little elves put together! Kids decided to hang them on their stockings! #iteach #melodysteachingadventures #getyourteachon #setthestagetoengage
Biome projects complete!! We are learning how energy passes through an ecosystem. The students brainstormed, researched and created biome shoeboxes and food webs to represent energy movement! They brought in objects and used classroom craft supplies to make the final shoeboxes.
We have 5 fifth grade classes and we brought all the final shoeboxes to the cafeteria for a gallery walk. It was so cool to see them show off all their hard work!
•
Which one is your favorite?

Welcome to Skillsville! I took the Mathville resource by the amazing @truetalesofateacher and broadened the scope to include literacy and social studies skills. In these pictures you can see the math challenge developed by Kori, with some small modifications to meet the needs of my students. The math challenge focused on multiplication and division word problems, however my students needed multi-step problems. I loved her concept of the town where there are math word problems related to the town buildings. Also, her idea to include hands on manipulatives to help students visualize the word problems is GENIUS! Tomorrow I’ll post pictures and explain how I used Skillsville to focus on language arts, literature, and economics 💕😊 #setthestagetoengage #rockyourschool #bethewildcard

Students have been working on writing  descriptive stories with engaging plots and a focus on evolving their characters, but today they finally had the opportunity to share their very own tales during “Story Time” by the campfire. So in awe of their talent. #iteach8th #iteachmiddleschool #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram

I’m so thankful for an amazing team that is always willing to go above and beyond for our kinder cubs! These sweet babies are in for quite the surprise next week. I can’t wait to see their reactions as we turn toward our wing. The best part? It is COMPLETELY decorated with THEIR art! Throughout next week they will work through different activities to earn bells with letters on them that will spell the surprise of a pajama day on Friday! #iteachk #ilovechristmas #polarexpress #bestteam #imissjanineanddebbie #remindsmeofcharlieandthechocolatefactory #christmasintheclassroom #stevenscreekelementaryk #bethewildcard #setthestagetoengage
