As teachers, we want to help our students learn to become excellent writers! One way we can do this is by teaching students how to revise their own writing. My favorite way to do this is using the Six Traits of Writing.
If you've been around my blog very much, you know that I stress the importance of emergency sub plans! Emergency sub plans can help alleviate that stress when you or your child wakes up sick in the middle of the night. If a family emergency comes up, you know that you’re taken care of! When you have plans already ready, that’s one less thing to worry about and you can just deal with whatever else it is that you need to deal with, and temporarily forget about school.
So, you want to get your students reading more, right? This is the goal of any educator- to each our students to LOVE reading. While some students naturally have a love for reading, others drag their feet at the thought of picking up a book. As teachers, we'd like to change that and make EVERY student excited about reading!
Are you ready to go back to school yet? There is always so much to prepare! Getting the classroom ready, mapping out your plan for the year, collaborating with your team, and getting everything ready for the students to arrive are just some of the many things on your to do list. How is a teacher supposed to keep track of it all!? A teacher planner is essential for getting organized!
There is this horrible misconception that teachers and mothers always need to put other people's needs before themselves. However, this dangerous misconception can lead to teacher burnout. We care about our students and our children so much, so of course we want to do everything we can for them. However, while there is a time and a place for putting other's needs first, we also need to be sure that we are taking time for ourselves. When we don't take care of ourselves, this is when burnout happens.
