✏️ 5TH GRADE TEACHER 💙 BE THE CHANGE 🍎 TPT: Texas Lone Star Teacher
It’s pure magic watching students choosing to code, choosing to write a novel to pair with a movie being made outside of school, choosing to research natural disasters, and choosing to collaborate on a STEM Bin activity among so many options when they finish a task. I had to let go and give them the chance to run with being independent. I had to choose to offer learning opportunities that meet their interests but aren’t tied directly to my curriculum. They are the curriculum! It’s been so completely worth it. ❤️ Our early finisher tasks took on a life of their own and needed a new home! I’ll be adding this board title to the resource tonight.

It’s Fall Parent Conference time! I have two days set for conferences, so that means their time with me is about 15 minutes long. It goes by entirely too fast! My conference sheets keep me on track to share all the info they came for. I love to talk, to take a step back and just listen, and to really showcase just how important their child is. I may not always get to share it all, but I know parents are leaving me with info that’s clear and organized. 😉 My Editable Conference Forms for can be made to fit your needs. Link in profile!

I found a new home to showcase the books we’ve read! The ultimate goal is to fill it up enough to make a second row. 😉 We’re focused on our chapter book right now, but I squeeze in picture books too! Poster sized book from @aperfectblendteaching’s doodle fonts and printed at Staples! Idea from @teachcreatemotivate. ❤️

My students got to soak up the special moment of being on the @todayshow along with @theamygroesbeck, and I’m now asking for their autographs! 😉 Really and truly I am so thankful that I get to share what I create for my students with the world through @teacherspayteachers. Thank you for joining me on this teaching journey. What we do matters so incredibly much. 💙

Celebrating student progress all day everyday over here! @laracasey said it best, and this quote has just stuck with me for my kids. The students who never finish at the top, who have a redo after going above and beyond, and who feel self defeat more often than not. It’s okay to learn in your own way and this journey is going to take time. Who in the world says we have to do it like everybody else? We’ll get there. Together. 💛

All of those lightbulb moments happening as we read The Honest Truth get recorded on here! We have connections, reactions, thoughts, questions, an opportunity for all to have a voice...just from a door turned dry erase board with contact paper! Swipe to see this door in action last year with exit tickets. Making our space work for us. 😉

I always wonder if the love of just sitting down with a book and reading is ever changed by testing, and then I see the excitement of new books coming in from our @scholasticbookclubs order and know.💙
