This week's Take5 explores a myriad of topics from reading, writing and math to the emotional well-being of our students in moments of crisis. We also highlight a piece on Edcamp for students if you are looking for a new way to engage learners. No matter what subject or level you teach, there is something for everyone in this week's post. So take a little time to foster your own learning and read on. Or as we like to think of it at BubbleUp Classroom: take five minutes for yourself. You deserve it.
I've worked as a middle school educator for almost twelve years. I can easily channel my inner twelve year old, jetting myself back to my own junior high experience (yes, I was in 7th and 8th grade back when it was still called "junior high"). This year, however, is different. My oldest son is now in seventh grade, experiencing middle school at another school in our district. He loves middle school -- he's having fun and learning a lot. And I too have learned so much in these first few weeks as a middle school parent, already transforming my thinking as an educator. So in no particular order, here are just a few of the lessons I've learned so far.
