I thoroughly enjoyed changing the calendar to June before I left school on Friday. There was something a little satisfying about only putting up 14 numbers (June 14th is our last day). I love teaching, but there’s something about the month of May that just drags on endlessly. To start the month off right I’m linking up with Farley:
May has not been filled with sunshine. This is very unfortunate because we are studying air and weather and it’s difficult to take your class outside for weather experiments when the weather is not cooperating! We had a rainy week so it was wonderful to get to go outside this evening with my daughter and just play outside for a couple of hours.
I started creating my summer wish list for reading. Here is what’s near the top:
I am so ready for summer break. I’m not even traveling anywhere exciting this summer, but I still consider it a vacation! My essentials for a great summer vacation are flip flops, sleep, and memories. I hate shoes and socks, but love flip flops during summer weather!
The next thing I love most about vacations is the fact I can sleep in. I used to be the girl who could sleep in until noon on the weekends. This amazing thing happened – I had a baby and now I’m lucky if I can sleep in past 8:00 (usually 7:30). I don’t care – I’ll take it!
Finally, the thing I’m most looking forward to this summer is making memories with my daughter. She recently turned two and is at a fun age where she will really enjoy the zoo, aquarium, nature hikes, playground, etc. I can’t wait to see her face light up with all of our little adventures!
Don’t forget to head on over to Farley’s blog to see what everyone is currently up to!
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
