Before we get into our regular curriculum routine, I spend A LOT of time doing read-alouds and simple post reading activities during the first and second week of school 📚 Watch my story to see all of the back to school books I love and the activities that I made to go with them!! ✏️ Just added them to my store ⬆️🤗

Hi. Teaching is hard. .
Sometimes you cry. A lot...
Sometimes you wake up with a headache, go to work with a headache and fall asleep with it too... sometimes it doesn’t go away.
You lose sleep over stress about your job or your students.
Now you may be wondering why I’m telling you all of this. Janelle this is not new information. Well you see, I’m kind of tired of people preying on teachers. We’ve ALL had hard days. People with 100 all the way to 100k followers have had a bad day!
Please know you’re not alone in that area. Please don’t listen to people who just throw your insecurities and the hard parts of our job in your face. .
No one in college told us teaching would be easy... pretty sure we all knew that. But I’m asking you to remember why you started teaching. .
You had dreams, goals, visions for a better world. You wanted to change the lives of your students. That kind of stuff inspires me.
Seeing all the amazing things people in this teachergram community are doing... seeing their love for this job, watching them share real life struggles... that inspires me. .
So next time you see someone who takes your weaknesses, throws them in your face, makes you feel bad, makes you question your career choice... do me a favor and unfollow them. Go search for people who INSPIRE you. Search for people who set your teacher heart on fire! .
Ok rant done. I just can’t stand when people prey on the weak and amazing, hard working teachers who are just trying to make a difference in this world. Also, I think teaching is one of the best jobs out there! K bye! Have a great Thursday✌🏼

I walked into my classroom this morning for some team planning and felt like I was home 🏡 We spend so much time in our classrooms, let’s make it feel like a second home for our kids AND ourselves 🤩

Here’s a sneak peek into what our “living room” area will look like this year 💗 (unless I change it for the 10th time 😂) This is where we do all our whole group instruction from (my smart TV is in front of the rug) and the area where all my students come to sit during that time. I love how the desks fit behind the futon so perfectly and I’m hoping it will be a comfortable place where we can meet as a classroom family. I’m getting so excited to meet my kiddos in just 2 1/2 weeks! 🥰 #flexibleseating
🍎 integrating Maths & History
1️⃣ The students could design a timeline of a day in the life of a historical figure or of how people behaved during a historical time.
2️⃣ Students can study population and the effect catastrophic events has on a countrys population. ( The Famine , World war 1 & 2 )
3️⃣ Investigate the weight of the pyramids. How long they took to make. How many people worked on the pyramids. How much stone each worker would have transported.
4️⃣ The students can measure the distance explorers such as Tom Crean & Christopher Columbus travelled.
5️⃣ Design a historical timeline based on major historical events.
F R I D A Y 🌹 It’s such a miserable morning today so the flowers on my table are really cheering me up as I plan my day with my girlies. It’s a funny old day with it being the last day of term and not being in to say goodbye to all the Year 6s. I hope all of the teachers and TAs out there have a great last day and a fantastic holiday - you deserve it! #flowers#floralfriday#roses#alstromeria#friyay#lastdayofterm#teacherlife#teacherfriends
🇬🇧 I looove organising and decluttering, it always makes me feel better💛 Can you relate?🙈 What do you do to cheer yourself up?
🇵🇱 Uwielbiam organizację i odgracanie, zawsze lepiej się potem czuję💛 masz tak samo?🙈 co robisz żeby poprawić sobie humor?
Happy Friday, friends! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 I think I’m a fan of this new shift away from counting likes on instagram. Hopefully it will take the pressure off everyone and help us get on with sharing things that we love and that inspire us! What do you think?! 💜💙💚💛🧡❤️ Repost from the fabulous @stacieswift
The other side of my room, all ready for some little performers next week!
Love a good before and after. Makes me realise how much better it is and that I’ve actually made progress. I can get too caught up in my to do list, sometimes it’s nice to stop and feel proud of the things you have done.
I tell ya, decorating a space where I don’t have to worry about the normal classroom logistics of storing student books and drink bottles etc etc is bloomin awesome!
