Colours and emotions go together like peanut butter and jelly! As a class we are learning about different emotions and how to deal with them. In order to be our best self we must understand ourselves from the inside out ( a big concept for our little learners). We are also exploring empathy and beginning to understand how what we do affects others and what they feel. As a class we are striving to โ€œbe a rainbow in someone elseโ€™s cloud.โ€ -Maya Angelou ๐ŸŒˆ

You canโ€™t grade skills such as empathy, love and inclusion.

But sometimes a letter lands on your desk that makes you realise that those important life skills, you strive to embed in your students are well and truly present.

Letโ€™s focus less on grades and more on life skills. Thatโ€™s what the world needs right now. 
Have a lovely weekend โค๏ธ #montessori #primaryschool #teachersofinstagram
Here is the class I spend most of my time speaking and teaching English with. Let me tell you what this job isnโ€™t easy, but when you hear these Chinese little people say an English word is always so precious and exciting. (By the way my fav little one is in the back corner๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ his name is Igor).

@hauntedsunshine You absolutely melted the hearts of 93 - 6th graders this week! I showed them the books you sent and we were all surprised by the notes inside!
๐Ÿฅฐ
Here are some of their responses:
๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™‚๏ธOne student: "I think I'm gonna cry!"
๐Ÿ‘ฉAnother student: "Do you know her in real life?" ๐Ÿ’Me: "Nope." ๐Ÿ‘ฉSame student: "Then why would she do this for US?" ๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™€๏ธSomeone else in class: "Didn't you read what she wrote? Because we're the coolest class around!"
๐Ÿ‘ฆA different student: "We are gonna have to fight over these since we all want to read them!" ๐Ÿ‘จA student in response: "No way. You just have to commit to finishing it in a week. Then we can all read them!"
๐Ÿ‘งAnd spoken like a true 6th grader: "Do you think she's a VSCO girl?"
๐Ÿ˜
My heart is so full. Thank you, @hauntedsunshine for sharing your love with some amazing kids in Minnesota!!

Weโ€™ve been living in sketchbook-making land the last six days. Every kiddo in all 47 of my classes now has one ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโ €โ €
โ €โ €
In the past, Iโ€™ve only done sketchbooks with my 3rd and 4th graders, but this year I included 1st and 2nd. I stuck to 9x12 for my older kiddos and then used @artwithmrs.e format for my younger grades, Iโ€™m excited to see my 1st and 2nd graders get in on the fun this year โค๏ธโ €โ €

This is just a reminder to me why relationships with my kids and their families matter SO much to me. Sometimes it feels like I'm genuinely doing everything wrong and I'm constantly figuring things out... but sweet little gifts like these and moments like when one of my girls told me she cried on the bus going home because she already missed me so much haha... make everything seem worth it. As I continue trying to balance teaching kindergarten and first grade as well as figuring out how to manage behaviors, these little surprises fill my heart and soul and remind me why I even started. This isn't everyday of course and being a teacher can be a very underappreciated job, but getting a thank you once in a while means the WORLD to me. Relationships, connection, and communication are all so key and my goal is to continue developing all of them with my kiddos and their families as the year continues. I'm ending this week with a tired but a grateful heart! ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ’› โ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ขโ€ข #teachersofinstagram #iteachk #iteachfirst #kinderfirst #relationshipsmatter #connection #teacherlife #teachersfollowteachers

Behavioral Classroom Disruptions
๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ต
The ultimate goal for any teacher is an academically productive classroom with focused, attentive, and on-task students.
๐ŸŽฏ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ†
โœ…The average teacher training program devotes just eight hours to the topic, according to a 2014 report from the National Council on Teacher Quality.
โœ…This lack of training comes with a cost, as teachers report losing 144 minutes of instructional time on average to behavioral disruptions every week, which comes out to roughly three weeks over the course of a year.
โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ
The bottom line is this: Effective classroom management is an absolute must. 
It impacts your ability to be an effective educator and enjoy your job, and it impacts your studentsโ€™ success as learners.
๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Iโ€™m here to help!

With all the great new releases coming out today, it was hard to resist not going to pick these beauties up!
___ ___ ___ ___
With the release of the #nintendoswitch just over 2 and a half years ago, it was time for Nintendo to release a smaller yet still as beautiful and powerful version of the console. Although small and light, it has beautiful picture and a great overall design!
___ ___ ___ ___
And who could forget the release of in my opinion one of the most anticipated games of the year, Links Awakening to play on your new, beautiful handheld device.
___ ___ ___ ___ 
And couldnโ€™t forget to pick up a copy of Ni No Kuni Remastered, which was decided to get on #playstation because who doesnโ€™t love getting #trophies ? 
___ ___ ___ ___
Needless to say, I have my weekend games already picked out and ready to go!

I started this book right before school started but //back-to-school-exhaustion// hit hard. I picked it back up today during SSR, and I have no words. Okay, actually I have a few. Not only is the story unbelievably powerful, important, and timely, but the writing is rhythmic and beautiful.

Thank you, @halseanderson, for your bravery and honesty in sharing this story. I look forward to book talking this soon and seeing your words positively affect many of my students. .

Scrapped my lesson today to talk about the #climatestrike . We went live on social media as I told students to take out cell phones and discuss what was happening around the world. Fantastic conversations. My students came up with brilliant ways to impact their world. Young people are often change agents - perfect connection as we prepare to read the powerful March Trilogy and read about SNCC and @repjohnlewis @andrewaydin @seemybrotherdance The PA Dept of Ed retweeted my lesson live as we discussed on the smart board - oohs and aahs from students about impact through social media. Connection. #teacher #teachersofinstagram #teach #civics #graphicnovel #graphicnovels
Third week of school in the books โœ…  it was a good week. Not as exhausting as the first two weeks of school. Things are good.

Yesterday as I held onto my babes and cried all.day.long, I told them over and over and over that I was doing this for them. โฃ
โฃ
Going back to work just wasnโ€™t a part of my plan, but I wasnโ€™t going to let the actions of someone else dictate what kind of life my kids and I have. And so I went. โฃ
โฃ
Leading up to getting this job, I prayed time and again that God would open up a door, just ๐จ๐ง๐ž door, if this is what I was supposed to do. โฃ
โฃ
Being in that school today, I have no doubt that, although I didnโ€™t see it coming, God did. He always knew. The amount of peace, dare I say even excitement, I felt being there, was something I didnโ€™t expect. โฃ
โฃ
Then when I had Tatum and Jax in that room with me, I knew it would be ok. Theyโ€™ll see me working hard. Theyโ€™ll see how I gave up time with them because I love them so much. Theyโ€™ll see that Iโ€™ll do anything to take care of them. โฃ
โฃ
My babes mean the world to me, and that, more than anything, is what theyโ€™ll know.
โ€ขWeekend. Salute!โ€ข.
Casual Saturday over here. We attempted breakfast out on the town. We know the drill with going out to eat in public with young children... Leave the dignity at the door and pick it up on the way out.. We did just that! We actually move really fast as we shuffle out these days. I think if we started training, we could run and no one would even see us!๐Ÿค” stay tuned๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

One year ago, some of my favorite former kids came to my room and surprised me with ice cream during a choir social. Today, those same kids surprised me with ice cream again, but made me come out of my classroom to get it ๐Ÿ˜‚ #teachersofinstagram #iteachsixth
This tip from @heidi.babin is kind of blowing my mind! Have you done this before??
WHEW, I had a super productive day! .
I worked a half day, checked Eli out of school early & took him on a lunch date to @chickfila, ๐Ÿ” got some shopping done at @oldnavy, checked Easton out of school, took Eli to the doctor, got a sweet treat at @area51icecream, ๐Ÿฆ took them to a new (to us) playground, then ran an errand for Shane! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป .
We are ending the night with LEGOs, cuddles, & @dominos pizza with our friends. ๐Ÿ•
.
Yeah, Iโ€™m tired. You donโ€™t have to ask. ๐Ÿ˜‚
Feeling cute, might go save some aliens later... ๐Ÿ‘ฝ 
Our Area 51 raid was out of this world! ๐ŸŒŽ Had to pull out my @spacecampusa flight suit and my star โญ๏ธ earings from @shopcoffeetococktails to rock this #roomtransformation Our students became top recruits for the Intergalactic Alliance ๐Ÿš€ to help rescue civilian aliens trapped in Area 51.

Oda Nobunaga was born in 1534 the son of a magistrate and warlord. After his fathers death he inherited his fathers domain at the age of 17. Nobunaga was known for his odd and often dishonorable behavior as a child, going so far as to throw ashes at his dead father during his funeral. As an adult Nobunaga lusted for power and would use any means necessary to achieve it. After defeating and killing off his rivals he set off to rule all of Japan and become daimyo. In 1560 Nobunaga met Imagawa Yoshimoto (the daimyo in 1560) in battle and through the use of guile and subterfuge was able to sneak around with his much smaller army and eliminate the daimyo, killing Yoshimoto before his men could retaliate. Oda Nobunaga was a cruel warlord with even less empathy. During his military conquests he often used tactics that were considered dishonorable, using sneak attacks and even setting fire to buildings with their occupants still inside. Worse still he was known to slaughter innocent inhabitants of the places he conquered, even women and children were not spared. Eventually, he would implement new technologies into his army including rifles and gunpowder to replace samurai and mounted warriors, a huge taboo in a country that honored tradition and the warriors code of bushido, two things that Oda Nobunaga never had or respected. .
