Buddy reading is finally in full swing in J12! For the first time today we had an activity to do while we were reading - use stretchy snake to sound out a word in our just right book and put the sound buttons on the word on a whiteboard! They did a great job keeping each other accountable and every hand went up when it was share time 🙌🏻
Another excellent science lesson from @inquisitive_hq today. Today we looked at weathering and investigated how abrasion changes rocks over time
I’ve never seen kids so excited to look at sugar cubes in my life 😂
Listen internet friends. I was thrown off when I watched this because of how well the guy mimicked the Chinese accent. Other than that, let us be reminded that life is already plenty difficult. There should be no reason for minorities to be fighting amongst ourselves. I obviously don’t know the situation but just wanted to use this as a learning opportunity to be grateful big man with the broom had enough respect to just not be serious about knocking this China uncle out. Or should I say China uncle was playing scared and had an inner debate whether to unleash crouching tiger hidden dragon or let it go. 😂 I’m just happy no one got hurt. 🙏 #asianfood#wuhan#coronavírus#losangeles#broom#teachersofinstagram#teachersfollowteachers#instagram#nyc#chinatown#626#irvine#motivationalquotes
Even my year six class love scratch and sniff stickers! 😍
The 1000 pack is $4 and the single sheets are $1 at @kmartaus
I use these in their homework every week and bookwork as a positive incentive. 🍉🍭🍩🍓🍌

💡 Handwriting Ideas 💡
Make it part of your daily routine and keep it short.
Find the “dead time” - the time when nothing else happens that is consistent most days.
In our house the 5 minutes it takes for me to get my girls’ breakfasts on the table is the ideal dead time. The night before I prep a short piece of writing for her to copy; we have woven in key common exception words to help learn spellings at the same time; some mornings I use it to relay the plans for the day.
This morning activity supports reading, spelling and writing and keeps her quiet whilst I’m getting the breakfast sorted.
Start with tracing and individual letters; start small with just one or two lines of writing; before you know it your child will be capable of much more in the short time and be moving away from tracing to copying then to independent writing.
This phase is great for when children have already mastered letter formation, are consolidating forming their letters correctly and beginning to work on the size, proportion and spacing of letters, achieving a more consistent size and proportion and having letters sit on the lines.
Got to relive my childhood today by going to Healthy Harold @lifeeducation_healthyharold ! My students learned about what makes someone special to us & we looked at healthy and safe options in our environment. Safe to say I enjoyed it as much as my kids! 🦒 .
Being a tutor gives a different dimension to teaching and it allows you to tailor each lesson to individual pupils. You really get to understand a child in depth and build wonderful relationships.
Tutoring times can suit your family needs and you can choose the hours you work. I originally started off with just 3 children on a Saturday (8am - 11:30am) and I built my hours from there. I chose the hours to fit in with our family needs at the time. I now work for 8 hours a week (3 pupils on a Thursday and 5 on a Saturday), again these hours suit our family at this moment in time. I have so many pupils waiting for a space but I am unable to offer them any availability. So if you would like to find out more about joining my team at Read to Grow then send me a message and we can arrange a chat over a coffee at a time that suits you.

The best way to Teach Respect is by Showing it. Unfortunately many of us think that because a person is younger then it means they can't be respected. There's nothing farther from the truth. If we cannot bring ourselves to respect the youngest person in the room, that also says a lot about our own morals. It is easier to get what we want when we start off by giving or showing it first.
We shouldn't feel entitle to someone's love, respect, trust just because we are older than them or we have a higher position, we must uphold good morals and sound discipline irrespective of who we are and where we stand.
The respect, love and trust you get will only be valuable if you've done something to deserve it and not because you forced people to give it to you.
Be sure to show respect to your children in ways they wouldn't expect. #respect#respectchildren#trust#love#parentsupport # #teachersofinstagram

I SEE NOUNS 👁
Last week 1 Yellow was introduced into the world of nouns and what better way to solidify our understanding than with this fun craft from @fromthepond 😍🙌🏻
As a class we brainstormed different nouns together before each student coloured, cut and glued their own craft together ✨
I cannot wait to show you their hard work once they’re finished 🥰
THIS is how I keep myself organized at work ✏️ I use a binder and bought a ton of the double plastic pocket dividers. In the front part of the binder, I keep a copy of the school map (I DO know my way around 😂 but I like a quick reference for teacher room #s )
