Jenna - I am sooo in love with my new Teacher Carry All bag!! I saw them come out around Christmas time and assured myself I didn’t need one. Then I saw Mel From the Pond ‘s review and really wanted one. When my favourite colour came up as a new product to be pre-ordered, I begged my fiancee to get it for me for my birthday. Being a male, he didn’t get to it however when my colour came up as available now, it was fate-I had to have it!! I cannot get over the quality and how much space it has. Honestly, I could practically take half my classroom home for an excursion! I cannot recommend this brand and bag enough-they’re amazing and I can’t wait to order one in every colour :) bonus being we can claim it on tax!⠀

Pizza Patterns!

A few weeks ago we made pizza patterns and discussed shapes of toppings! Using food and other objects to show pattern and shape can be more effective than showing a child a literal shape. Applying shape to the environment can support children to generalise shapes.

Every student can learn, just not in the same way. All deserve to be accepted and encouraged to reach their full potential.

If only it were that easy, but I must say, IEPs get sooooooo much easier the more you do (& the more data & communication you have going into it).

These cool books from @scholasticinc come with little finger puppets to create an interactive experience!
🐺
I love stuff like this almost as much as my kids do!

You can engage your students in so many different ways with a book outside of just reading it to them. They will learn and retain more information when they get to be part of the story!

When I’m not working out, I’m busy trying to shape the minds of the youths. And in special education, I’m also trying to identify the gaps in knowledges and filling those. ~
~
I won’t go on a huge rant. But teaching is damn hard. These empty chairs have 14 amazing & wonderful students who come through and sit in them throughout the day. And while I am the teacher, there are days when I feel like my students teach me more than I teach them. That’s pretty damn cool. ~
~
When I went into teaching, I didn’t expect to love my students as much as I do. I didn’t expect to carry their burdens with me as I leave the classroom at the end of the day. I didn’t expect to have sleepless nights due to worries of how to reach them. I didn’t expect to laugh as often as I do. But I literally can’t imagine doing anything different. So incredibly thankful for my amazing students

Wednesday’s are the days I usually quit. I usually say I’m too tired I’ll do it later. 
NOT TODAY SATEN!! I got up, did the sample workout for the NEW 20 min program coming out in January AND feel GREAT! 
Time to kick my nutrition into gear so I can accomplish my goal BEFORE Christmas! 👊🏽 Are you ready to finally join and accomplish your goals! #spedteacher #christmaslove #firstyearteacher #gradschoolproblems #confidence #goals #focused #neverenough #stickinwithit

Week 2 Day 3 of 21 Day Fix - Barre Legs: I have been in many dance classes in my life and always hated ballet the most. It always seemed so hard, they kept telling me to lift with the back of my leg and none of it made sense. It didn’t make sense because I didn’t understand how use my body and wasn’t strong enough. I get it now. I swear today is one of those days that I wish I had figured out my health so much younger. Maybe then I would have been a better dance and not wanted to cry every time I had to go to ballet. Today I wasn’t the most beautiful dancer, but I was way better than I used to be!

After winter break, I’m pulling out one of my favorite writing centers - Story Puzzles Endless Writing Center! Students pull out a setting and a character card to use for their journal story. Some kids like to make sure the setting and characters match l since we discuss that during our reading mini-lessons, but I also allow the kids to have fun and make up silly stories, too! :) A mermaid on a farm, a princess who goes camping...they have so much fun! Check it out in my shop by clicking the link in my profile or going to http://bit.ly/storypuzzlescenter

I remember when I first started thinking of becoming a coach I immediately thought of all the reasons I shouldn’t do it! .
✖️I don’t have a ton of friends.
✖️I deal with anxiety and change can escalate it.
✖️I didn’t have friends and family that I could “sell” to.
✖️I’m not a salesperson
✖️I had less than 100 friends on facebook and on Instagram I followed my favorite celebrities.
.
But I had been following other coaches for so long that I knew I needed to give it a try.  I figured what’s the worse that can happen.  I continue to work on my own health and fitness journey.  Not a bad problem to have. .
Well it turns out that onces I pushed passed all my excuses and limiting beliefs in myself, I found something truly beautiful.  I found a tribe of women who empower each other, support each other, and hold each other accountable when we need it.  I found an opporutnity to help my family financially.  An opportunity To help us pay off studen loans, take vacations, and provide a life where we are free of money stresses.  I found confidence in myself.  I’ve not only worked on my physical health but my mental health.  I work everyday to make myself the best I can be for my kids, husband, family, and friends.  I fill my cup so I can then fill others. .
Am I exactly where I want to be yet? No!  Will I get there?  HELL YA!  I’m so glad I ignored all those negative limiting beliefs I heard when I thought about starting.  All I’ve gained has been so worth it!  My only regret is that it took me so long to tell the negative noise to SHUT UP! 😂

#amonthinmyclassroom (yesterday) This little lady started In my room a couple weeks ago & really struggled w/ number ID & the counting sequence. 6 specifically seemed to be a number that we couldn’t identify & would skip....just a couple weeks later and look at her now! 😍
-
She can count 1-10 & her accuracy when identifying these numbers has drastically increased already!!! 👏🏼 SO proud! -
Also, these mats are an AMAZING way to  teach number sense & the mats go 1-20. I use them w/ all three of math tiered math groups! -
Now just trying to remember where I got them from 🤔.......someone on TPT. I’ll let you know if I remember! -

Although the dictionary says that self-esteem is a noun, I prefer to think of it as a verb. Self-esteem is an ACTION. We have to PRACTICE and DO self-esteem to have self-esteem.

But I’m busy.
But I'm broke
But I have kids.
But my circumstances are different. 
But I’ve failed before.
But I’m from a small town.
But I don’t have any friends. 
But my parents need me.

But I have student loans.
But I don’t know enough. 
But I have credit card debt.
But I already eat well. 
But I already feel great.
But I'm not in shape.
But I’m fearful. ✋🏼#holdupwaitaminute🤚🏼 What if you said “BECAUSE” instead of “BUT...”💫 See how different it feels?! What if this COULD change everything in your health, your family, your finances?

Our Make Yourself Proud board is looking very random this week. 😂😍 From art projects to iReady tracking charts to random printables they did during specials, I love seeing what my kids are proud of! Some kids choose to switch out their work every week, some are super strategic and meticulous about what they post, and some would switch it hourly if they could. 😂 I love hearing what they share when they post something to the board and I ask them, “Why are you proud?” 💜 Do you have a student work board in your room? How do you use it?

The SWEETEST thing happened to me today!! My previous students wrote me letters!! I balled happy tears!! 😭 My whole heart is beaming with love and joy! These kids were everything to me and leaving my classroom to be a SAHM was the such a hard decision! These letters have given me comfort in my choice, but also remind me how much I miss seeing their faces everyday. I am planning a visit to go see them in the start of 2019!! -
What brought you joy today?! 💞

#amonthinmyclassroom Day 12!!!! We had a bunch of schedule changes today (I had an IEP meeting and we were down a para) so we spent a decent amount of time today learning through play. My kids really impressed me !!! Unstructured or minimally structured play can be super hard for some of my friends, but today they all worked together so well and handled the changes like CHAMPS! Proud moment watching these littles scoop and pour and giggle together this afternoon! .
.
ALSO my kids love sensory bins and also love making messes SO I bought a ball pit on amazon and it is where we play with sensory materials now to make clean up easier! It’s a HUGE lifesaver and I would definitely recommend if you also struggle to keep sensory bins contained. Works like a charm! .
.
How do y’all teach appropriate play skills in a more moderate to severe class? I know they are SO important and we model a lot and teach in the moment a lot but I’m wondering if anyone has suggestions for more formal lessons? Comment below to share please!

Trying to find a functional way to communicate can be difficult but just because a student is nonverbal doesn’t mean they don’t have a lot to share ! Also BIGGEST pet peeve - when people assume that someone who is nonverbal doesn’t understand anything. STOP. TALKING. ABOUT. STUDENTS.IN. FRONT. OF. THEM!!

Après-work look for December. (Lets be honest, it’s probably through February because winter flannel forever.) One and a half weeks of school left and then I plan on living in this outfit for two straight weeks. How many days until you’re on winter break?

Also, yes, those are dark circles under my eyes. I didn’t even attempt to airbrush those out. #teachertired realness. . . . . . . . .

Flexible seating.

This is what it looks like in my classroom.

I remember two summers ago, my co-teacher (at the time) and I agreed we wanted to bring some options into our inclusion setting. We had really great ideas and mapped out how to start implementing it in small steps, to see how the kids would respond.

Fast forward to finally getting a classroom of my own and I decided this year I would go full force and embrace flexible seating to the fullest, but doing so in a way that was resourceful and cost efficient. 
Every item in my room that I brought in myself was either: off fb marketplace (for cheap), gotten at yard sales/garage sales/flea markets, donated by very kind individuals, or even found on the side of the road.

You don’t have to go broke trying to include #flexibleseating options in your classroom. I have never spent more than $10 or so on any chair in my classroom - not to mention I was given one for free from a very kind soul just recently. It’s about knowing how much items cost new and how to go about asking the right way when trying to get the best deal. You also need to have a great deal of patience as well. You may not have the exact items you want in a day, a week, or even a month - but eventually everything turns up.

Did this happen overnight? Of course not! I had no idea my first year what exactly I wanted. Did I have a plan? YES! That idea in my mind has evolved over the past few years though. You find out what works and what can be improved and as a result...changes are made. Am I ever content with my room? Yes, but I still am on the hunt for how to improve it.

Incorporating these seating options has made some of my quiet students speak up who might otherwise not advocate for themselves, it has made some of my most challenging students see they can make better choices based on where they work best, and has let students feel safe enough to know they can make mistakes in order to improve. While no day is perfect, I can honestly say this has helped aid in respect amongst students, they share with one another without arguing, and they take pride in the space that they learn in daily. #itsallaboutbalance

These interactive word work notebooks from @wildaboutfirsties are another fan favorite in my resource room. Many of my students shutdown when give paper and pencil tasks, so these are great low prep alternative for getting students to engage with words. We pair them with a “slide through the word card” to focus on attending to all of the sounds 😊. .

We visited Germany on Monday and today we made our craft! I am obsessed with how creative this student got with decorating her gingerbread man 👉 she used two gum drop stickers to create bows. I would have NEVER thought to do that myself! Annnnd just like that, I am reminded that sometimes, the best activities are those where there is no pressure. Just a gingerbread man, some glitter, glue and some candy stickers and their creativity shines. 😍 Next stop, Israel! 🇮🇱

I just can't get enough of these visual schedules! They have made everything easier for both my staff and my students with preparing for the day, getting through the day, transitions, and resetting the schedule for the next day! All of my students can use these and that in itself is amazing! Love what you are seeing? Check the #linkinprofile  to find them for your classroom! #visualschedule #visualsupports #visualsforlife #rsgcommunity

My new favorite book/tool and our social skills craft today. I love to incorporate art into our social skills plans and the kids love it too! And this book is amazing. One side has the emotions and the other has strategies to choose from for each emotion. It’s such a neat tool and of course our kids love the monster theme.

Guess what difficulty we have been working on?

No matter what grade, there is always at least one student that needs help understanding what focus means.

I ❤️ using the give me five because I can easily point to eyes, ears, brain, etc when I forget my visuals or I am across the room.

What do you like to do to help kids focus?

My next steps after teaching this lesson are:  timers, headphones, fans (for white noise), limit visual distractions...
