Today we’re going to share and explore a few ways we can celebrate, encourage, and cheer-on our students. Again, these things can be celebrations AND they can also be just normal-every-day routines. As you are considering these ideas, they aren’t a measuring stick. Pick the ones that work for YOU, your students, and your situation. How can you tweak them to support your young learners? There is no right or wrong answer.
While you won’t hear me discounting the importance of plot table growth, we must also remember that we, as teachers, live and work with the most amazing, frustrating, astonishing, exhausting, exhilarating human beings. While our reward may be a data point, it might also be a never-before spoken word, a tug on our hand after lunch, or a single moment of flexibility.
Bulletin Board Ideas For The Next School Year. Leveraging black fabric and a universal saying can get you an entire YEAR worth of bulletin boards. Stapling black cotton fabric to a bulletin board (typically $10 a bulletin board) allows you the ability to staple freely to the board without tearing or wrinkling.

The Best Back To School Book Bins. Traditional plastic book bins are great for durability (lasting year to year).

How To Use Subway Art Posters In The Classroom. These belief statements can change an entire classroom culture. Rather than introducing or creating ‘class rules’, these basic tenants are ideals my class holds about our classroom, our work together, and the world. Short, sweet, and easy to remember, these phrases have tremendous power.
Host an End of the Year Classroom Auction this year! It doesn't have to be stressful, but be sure you're only adding things you purchased yourself. There is no reason to expend extra energy, time, or resources on this venture. The goal is to make your life simpler, the classroom cleaner, and send students home with some materials they can use over the summer.
How To Store and Use Narrative Writing Mentor Texts. Narrative Writing mentor texts offer students a ‘real’ perspective on a genre and give students a ‘real’ author to model. Making writing concrete is a priority for me and mentor texts help me do this. Additionally, students find it fun!
