Teacher Hack 🤗// Take rainbow colours of Bunnings paint swatches, put an album ring through the corner and bam - a cheap and easy way to keep track of student computer logins and passwords. I have to admit, I made this for free because I got a $5 @spotlightstores
voucher for being a member, so I stocked up on album rings to make cute little booklets like this one. Get on it! 😝

Despite who you voted for, we must remember that this is a big day for our nation. We must also remember that despite differences we may have, we must come together in order to be great. Let's all work to make a difference. Happy Inauguration Day!!
Not sure what to teach today? Teach our kids that kindness and empathy are signs of strength and leadership. Teach them to defend the marginalized and bullied. Teach them to be a generation that tears down walls and shatters glass ceilings. Teach them that leadership is defined by integrity, and integrity is shown in our actions. Head to TPT today to check out FOREVER FREE resources for your classrooms! #kindnessnation #weholdthesetruths

My sons first sculpture class with me today, helping me set up. He is very excited all boys today and most friends from school.
Why do my students have to come up with inappropriate words when generating blends words?! Bra and drunk! GREAT! And the best part? When someone said drunk, another kid was like, "That's a bad word! You can't say that!" Then another kid said, "Drunk is when you drink a lot and then wobble around like this." And he proceeded to act it out. 🙈
Roll, add and measure! 📏🎲
Whatever you believe will happen, will happen.
