Using @heyhopeking #setthestagetoengage “Take me to the movies” students reviewed math concepts to solve a riddle, reviewed parts of speech to complete a Mad Lib, and worked with their Class Houses to create a skit showcasing a class rule.
I had been gone on family bereavement and it was such a fun day to return ♥️♥️♥️ I look forward to the many adventures still left this year! 🎉

After reading “the Albertosaurus Mystery” we did a directed drawing of 2 different dinosaurs and then wrote an opinion piece of whether or not you’d want a dinosaur as a pet. Engaging and impressed with the outcome 🤷🏽‍♀️💕🙌🏼 #teachersofinstagram #teacher #teachersfollowteachers #journeys #thirdgrade

Seriously LOVED today’s stem and no not because it only requires 3 items but because of their effective communication to one another like seriously just listen to the video and how they talk to one another, music to my ears🥰 who can make the longest chain out of 1 piece of construction paper?? We have our winners 🏆

We just finished this read-aloud today & the kids were so sad that it was over! They laughed, they cried, they fell in love with Stella & Ivan! If you haven’t shared this one with your kiddos yet, I’d highly recommend it. 🦍💕

💌YOU HAVE TEACHER MAIL! 💌Don’t pack away that valentines box - reuse it to create your very own teacher mailbox. Run to the @targetsdollarspot @target To get your own sweet mailbox! •

“In order for students to enjoy a rich learning experience, they need to be known by their teachers”-Better Lessons •

This mailbox has really enhanced the dynamic of our classroom community. We have some friends who have a hard time verbalizing their feelings and have written notes to us to help us understand. A quick note to tell us they had a rough morning or even make us smile and tell us we are doing great. Giving our students a safe space to communicate has been incredible.❤️💌

I love the similarities...and genius in their plans. 😂

I will live next door to my sister. I will have zero children and my favorite thing to do will be take a nap. My favorite person will be my sister.

For clarification, this was an app their teacher used, not my face paint skills.

GIVEAWAY TIME! (and guess what?! Everyone is a winner!) 💃🏻 I recently discovered @watchvooks, a site that brings children’s books to life. 😱

My favorite part about @watchvooks is that it makes reading accessible to ALL students. 👏🏻 I use Vooks during my reading groups, independent practice, and as an early finisher activity. I have my students access Vooks on our Chromebooks and/or iPads while practicing different literacy skills. 🙌🏻 It has empowered my struggling readers and it engages my students who need more extension. It’s an all around win-win. 👌🏻 Vooks takes picture books and animates each page, bringing the story to LIFE! 😍What is even more exciting is that I am teaming up with @watchvooks to give ALL OF YOU a month for FREE! 👍🏻 Here’s the quick and easy sign up!
1. Like this post and tag your teacher bestie so they can sign up, too!
2. Follow me and @watchvooks.
3. Click the link in my bio to fill out the sign up form!

GIVEAWAY CLOSES AT 5pm PST on 2/17/19. Your subscription information will be sent to you via email. 🤗 This giveaway is not sponsored or endorsed by Instagram.
You’ll LOVE using Vooks! 🥰

Students, “How’d you draw her hair so good?” In my head I’m thinking 1) it took me like two minutes to draw and 2) it really isn’t that great! Thanks for the confidence boost though!! This is why I teach little kids! They’re always so impressed with everything I do! 😂😂😂 #teacherlife #iteachthird #thirdgrade #thanksguys #anchorchartlife #anchorchartsfordays

I love using these science themed reader's theaters during reading time! There’s a play for Rocks and Minerals (I Wanna Be a Rock Star), the Weather, and the Solar System!!! 😊They're great for fluency and create instant engagement with reluctant readers.
Each reader's theater has enough parts for the whole class (30 parts which may be adjusted) and they're full of humor your kids will love.
Suggested songs are included as well as detailed teacher notes! Perfect for most 3rd - 6th graders!

Swipe and take a peak at how I store my STEM stations. I try my best to make STEM instruction/opportunities a weekly priority in my classroom, and finding a way to organize all of my supplies was not an easy task! Stay tuned for more information about how I teach STEM in my classroom.💚 Thank you to @barndoorsandlace for the beautiful labels! (Now if only the rest of my classroom looked this beautiful!) •

What do you L💗VE about your class?? For me, it’s all the tiny humans I get to share it with who have the biggest hearts. The ones who hug you for no reason, leave a note on your desk, and compliment their friends throughout the day. I know I’ll never forget that about this group of kiddos. .
.
My classroom isn’t perfect. Neither am I. There are a million things I wish I had...flexible seating, a bigger library, a kidney table for small group...you get the picture. But I still have soooo much love for this room. I have some awesome kiddos, walls full of learning and positive messages that make me happy, and coffee every day so, I’m doing alright. 💗☕️ .
.
I hope you had the best week. It’s all about perspective. What’s your favorite part of your room?? .

Love spreading messages of love, acceptance and tolerance in month of February for #blackhistorymonth here’s some of the books we use in our class during the month.
Partner work in full force! Students sharing their thoughts on our new poetry unit. We discussed and analyzed the elements through a variety of strategies- our favorite was the colorful labels. They were hunched together and it makes my teacher heart so very warm ❤️ We used kind words and practiced our disagreement/compromising skills. I’m excited for this four week unit!
Next week, as we dive more into different styles of poems, we will use Kagan Sage and Scribe to help facilitate. I’m excited to hear all their wonderful thoughts and connections.
What’s your favorite unit to teach?

My anchor charts are thinking maps quickly sketched onto my whiteboard. I work everyday to build a culture of metacognition, and when students are taught ways to map their thinking they really learn to THINK. This is the visual my class created while brainstorming all the subtopics they would write about in their informative essays about the colonies. Then I save all of their ideas by taking a picture and inserting it into a powerpoint presentation, so I can project it (or share it on Google Classroom) when needed. I would love to send time making this into an anchor chart... but #aintnobodygottimeforthat #maybethisummer #ifyoumakeanchorchartsimjealous #iloveteachingwriting
Happy Friday! **featuring open cubby doors that are supposed to be closed before anyone leaves the classroom...can you tell it’s been a long week?? At least it’s a 3-day weekend! Side note - WHY am I still here after 5:00 on a Friday?! 🤦🏽‍♀️

It’s February, we’ve had weeks of inconsistency with snow days, late starts, and indoor recess 🙃🤪 our geometry unit arrived at the PERFECT time. This unit allows us to take a step back from our normal math routine. We teach a quick lesson on a skill the students then receive a rubric of things they need to add to a book they started using the book creator app. By the end of the unit they have created an extensive book targeting all of the geometry standards! •

I wish I would have thought to record my students’ reactions this morning when they came in and saw the back table set up for another escape room. They were SO excited. There was legit jumping for joy going on.
I love when my students are excited about learning activities like this. And, I also enjoyed getting to walk around with a King Cuddle-Saurus sign stuck on my shirt all morning. 😂

A Valentine’s Day well spent... ON A FIELD TRIP! We did a workshop on Forms of Energy and explored the science museum to further our learning and excitement about science. #thirdgrade #fieldtrip #pbl #sciencerules
The real MVPs are my work wives that look after me and #theraushling I had a Jamocha shake delivered to my door today. What a Friday! ❤️
Thank you @dailystem! These are great ideas to keep students busy over mid-winter break! I sent it via @seesawlearning. #stemeducation
Flash Light Friday is one of my favorite classroom rewards! The students earned all of their classroom brownie points just in time for the day before vacation. We made forts and read with flashlights for the whole afternoon. We even played a few rounds of FlashLight Tag... with that being said - I’m off to Iceland for February Break!
