I am finally getting a chance to read this 📚 book that was post on IG several months ago. Please tag me if you were the one who introduced this book to me. So far it is spot on what we as PREK teachers have been saying forever! PREK is the most important year and I just don’t understand why it is so hard for some people to realize it.🤷🏽♀️ I remember one teacher told me that all PREK teachers do is tie shoes and wipe noses all day. 🤣🤣🤣 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Bae-Bae I wish that was all we did! We set the foundation for future learning. PREK is a different beast because we get in ALL in the beginning stages...temper tantrums, separation anxiety from child and parent and minimal or lack of social skills 😡🙁😜🤥😤😟😊 on top of all the academics. We deal with so much on a daily basis that I cannot even list them all. Get the book! #themostimportantyear #prekindergarten #prekindergartenteacher #suzannebouffard #prek #blackteacherloop #theliteracyloop #teachiepeachie

“Keep loving, keep trying, keep trusting, keep believing, keep growing. Heaven is cheering you on today, tomorrow and forever.” -Jeffrey R. Holland.
This is basically my life right now. No one ever told me how hard motherhood is, how stretching, trying but unbelievably beautiful motherhood could be. Many tears have been shed on their, and my behalf. Because of them, I have been brought to my knees many times in prayer. Because of them, I have searched harder to know the things my Father in Heaven would have me do and be. They are the ones who have helped me to know my Savior. These tiny but mighty beings are one of my greatest blessings, and I am honored to be their mother.
THIS! 🙌🏼 (reposted from @mrsdscorner
) and it couldn’t be more true! many teachers ask me what im doing at the start of the year and this is always my answer!
Today we decided to bring out the branches we had collected earlier this year for some fun branch painting. In addition, we made paint brushes out of the fallen evergreen twigs from our garden. One of our kids exclaimed, “It’s bumpy on my brush!”. Another one said, “I’m using the splatter technique!”.

Sammy and Bradley had some visitors! It turned out to be a cousin day 💞
We start school in August here. 😱 I’ve been busy making some apple resources, like these pre-writing cards for my literacy center! This will be one if my first day of school centers. 🍎 Link in profile!
Machine Creation Station! This morning, our Green Class amigos were encouraged to try to build a pulley system. We worked on our own, as well as in pairs to raise heavy objects with a simple machine! #machineweek
Magic School Bus day 2. 🚌 Today we read “Inside Ralphie-A Book About Germs”. 🚌 We simulated what it looks inside our body with yellow plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. 🚌 We dyed @cheerios
with red food dye. Filled a jar with water and yellow food dye to represent plasma. We added mini marshmallows for the white blood cells and pom poms for the platelets. 🚌 When we added the red Cheerios to the yellow plasma it turned it red like blood. 🚌 As we read the book we talked about what each item in the jar does to fight infection and what it does for our body.

The other day Grey and Hayes had some money to spend. (Thanks, Grandma!) They both decided on these puffy paint glitter paint pens, which needed to be kept inside a perimeter. 😉 I was all ready with a sheet of paper to layer it with in case I had some push back, but they loved the idea! I think they actually preferred the variation. 🙌🏼
Now, in honor of Amazon Prime Day, I added our 20+ favorite art supplies to the link in bio. You’ll find the majority of our favorite supplies here such as squeeze bottles and scissors! ✌🏻What’s your favorite art supply?
I'm not going to lie, so much of my motherhood has been me just trying to "keep face". I've never lied to anyone about the hardships in motherhood, except for myself. 😢
I realized that I lie to myself all day. I've told myself that motherhood really isn't that hard. I mean, how hard is it to make lunches, change diapers, and teach little kids? I used to nanny. I used to babysit. I used to teach. Granted, those careers are not easy, but apparently I got it in my head that motherhood WAS. 💚
We see so many moms and dads rocking it. We see all the happy pictures and hear all the funny stories. Clearly, we're doing something wrong if we aren't constantly happy. (LIE!!!) 😣
See, what happens when we believe the lie that parenthood "should be easy" (at least somewhat) is that we constantly let ourselves down. We can beat ourselves up over our imperfect lives that we feel should be different. 🙁
Mom, Dad, your job is H A R D. You hear me? That's not an exaggeration. In fact, I would say it's harder than hard. It's one of the most exhausting, ritualistic, thankless, and humbling jobs on the planet.
YOU WERE MADE FOR THIS!!!
Let's just take a minute to tag a friend who is an amazing parent and needs some encouragement today! 🙋

C’est GRATUIT 😇 écris-moi pour avoir le lien 😘
Aujourd’hui, on a pigé « histoire sous la table » tu penses bien qu’on a égayer encore plus ce privilège avec des doudous, pour créer une cabane et j’ai sorti la lampe magique 😍
