Also today, I got asked to be a “guest speaker” to one of our Ag classes. They were learning about marbling. I taught them how to calibrate and use a meat thermometer and about picking your cooking method based on the cut of meat. #TeamTeaching#WeAreBCS#BlackHawkPride#CTE @buncombeschools @ncfacs @northbuncombehigh
Happy weekend everyone! I head into hospital today to have surgery to correct the bone in my nose. Hopefully this will help improve my ongoing sinus and allergy problems. I may be a little absent from social media over the next few weeks as I recover. Thanks everyone for your support and for being part of my teaching journey. See ya soon!
Thank you to all my class members for the beautiful birthday flowers and cards for Monday. Thank you to everyone who came to dance this morning - you were fab-u-lous! So good to see you all at the lunch & natter too 💐
DATA - for today’s maths lessons we walked down to the bottom of our school and collected data about traffic along the main road. We then used our tallies and tables to create a graph and talked about real-life applications and reasons for collecting data about traffic.
I’ve learned some things this week & have loved teaching a little bit of the history curriculum. I know the distinction is SO much more than this! Which did you choose to write about? Why? Teach me more! #teamteaching#lonardoshea
Last year my 5th grade team received a grant for each of our classes to get a large locker. Over the years, the most common feedback from our 5th grade families is how scary lockers are for incoming 6th graders. So now our VIP students for the week not only get to use the locker for their belongings, but they also get to practice opening the locks! Love seeing the excitement and determination they have to use the locker! Shout out to our amazing PTO @maizeelementarypto ❤️ always investing in our students and teachers!

Mrs. Jeffery's 1st/2nd graders completed a fun activity, collaborating with Mr. Freeman (EL teacher) and Mr. Thomas (Art teacher). In this activity, Mr. Thomas taught the students how to draw emotions on the faces of their drawings! They had a fantastic time working on this. #workingtogether#teamteaching#expressingfeelings#emojis

A great resource and timely reminder as we get ready for Term 4. Life can be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for some our kids with so much happening in their lives it’s important that we support them through their feelings and I’ll be honest these strategies would be helpful for my own wellbeing too
