It’s only hours until 2013, so I figured it was close enough to link up with the January Currently.
My husband and I settled in a town that is about 2 1/2 hours away from his family and 5 hours from mine. Family has always been an important part of my life, but now that I have a child of my own, it means even more to see my daughter with them. This year we were able to see both families and I couldn’t be happier!
Last time I chose the word courage. It has been my word all year: courage to try new things and branch out of my comfort zone.
This time I chose the word happy.
I need to remember to surround myself with the people who make me happy and find more time for the people that bring happiness to my life.
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
