This week, I ran across an interesting perspective on using graphic organizers for writing, a cool project to encourage student mural creation, advice on differentiating whole group instruction, pointers on developing growth mindset, and a great book list.
Plus, there are a few extra resources in today's Take5 -- a great web site, an audio recording tool, and some posters you can use in your classroom or library. Enjoy!
After a fun, relaxing Thanksgiving Break, I am so ready for Take5. Something about a nice long break from school makes me want to jump back into my classroom practice and try new things. This week I am thinking about everything from coding to Snapchat. If you are ready to add a little something new to your teaching practice, read on.
Happy November from BubbleUp Classroom! We know that despite the Fall leaves and crisp autumn air that this is a time when teachers and students can start feeling burned out. While everything is shiny and new in September, now kids and adults are feeling the grind and in need of a break. As educators, we all have to work hard to keep ourselves grounded in our practice and positive so that our students will reflect that back to us in their learning. We hope this Take 5 will help inspire you in the weeks to come to try something new. Remember to breathe; you aren't that far away from a very well deserved Thanksgiving Break!
