    Primary Tumblr Teacher Help!

    Hey, guys! If any of you teach in the primary grades (particularly 1st), would you have a minute to message me what you do for your reading program? How you teach, what’s important, centers, tips, etc. I’m looking to be thoroughly educated in a little amount of time, haha!

    Thanks in advance, #education community!

    Girl 2: No, I’m fine.

    Girl 1: Okay, so you don’t like airplanes. Chugga chugga, choo choo!

    Girl 2: No, really! I’m fine.

      Fiction vs. Nonfiction

      1. Girl 1:

        So what's the difference between fiction and nonfiction again?

      2. Girl 2:

        Like if I said, "I pushed R_________ off a cliff," that would be fiction because it's not real and didn't actually happen.

      3. Girl 1:

        Oh! So if I say, "I cut off K______'s hair bun," that would be nonfiction!

      4. Girl 2:

        No, because that didn't actually happen.

      5. Girl 1:

        (holding scissors) Or did it....?

    I took a personal half day yesterday for reasons…which have absolutely nothing to do with being pregnant!
Two teachers contacted me about this rumor.

    I know a lot of you have seen this new video already, but I wanted to share it with you and also share my students’ take on it. Here are a few wise words from some of my kids…

    "People may leave, but don’t forget them. #kidsneedtoknow #memories"

    "Don’t judge people by what they look like. #kidsneedtoknow"

    "You’re made from love, to be love, to spread love to others. #kidsneedtoknow"

    "Try new things. You might not get another opportunity. #kidsneedtoknow"

    "Don’t hit your friends. #kidsneedtoknow #saynotoviolence"

    "Treat everyone like they are your best friend. #kidsneedtoknow"

    "You’re awesome so live like it #kidsneedtoknow"

    EDD question :) Do you and the hubby bounce teaching ideas off each other?

    Boo me for getting back late to you! 

    Yes! We most definitely talk shop. Though being a music teacher and classroom teacher is so incredibly different, we still learn a lot from each other. Plus it is wonderful to always have someone to talk to that “gets it.”

    How’s the teaching going?

    So, it's EDD weekend. I'm just curious...what's your favorite part about being married? You and Joserisms are super cute together, btw. :-)

    Oh my goodness, there are so many things! I think the best thing about being married to Joserisms is just being with him and knowing I’ll always be with him. Whether we are sitting on the couch together, in the car together, or in a concert together, it’s incredibly comforting to know that I’ll be sitting next to such an amazing man for the rest of my life.
