How has your break been??? I hope everyone had the best holiday. I hope to start reposting actual teaching stuff soon. I haven’t done anything teaching related in over a week. It was so needed.

I started new anxiety medicine and I’m praying it works without side effects. Where are my #anxiousteacher at?

This year with reid was incredible. We have gotten closer and talk about everything. He has changed so much this year.

I want to thank you all for sticking around here as I struggled through 2020 and 2021. These last two years have been really hard and I appreciate your dms and kindness.

Here’s to 2022 friends. Xoxo.

Melt. My. Heart.

Where is my baby?! This has become my absolute favorite tradition for Christmas. With Reid getting older, it gives us a solid 3 hours uninterrupted together. We work together and talk and laugh.

These paintings and our time together will be cherished forever. #reidpatrickhackergrowingup #christmastraditions #christmasdiy #christmaswithkids #kidart #teacherskid #teacherkid #teachersfollowteachers #iteachfirst#firstgradeteacher

When is your last day?

These snowman hangers turned out even better than I hoped. I did use pipe cleaner instead of twine, so that the kids had to do it. #finemotorpractice ! Everything was from Amazon. Bags, tissue, pipe cleaner, snowmen.

Comment or dm for links to anything. I just drew a solid line candy cane hook and kids ripped and covered. Great morning work.

Grateful for all the delivery folks out there working their tails off. My brother has worked for usps for over 30 years. I appreciate all that these under appreciated people do.

Our bin stays out through February. We will throw in cereal bars, candy and what you see here. Catching them on the ring is a treat.

Are you off tomorrow or do you return to school?

When I lived in Pa, we were off for the first day of hunting season. Here in Va, we return tomorrow.

Do you send home something before winter break?

How are you feeling?

This. Teaching isn’t my life or identity. It’s a job. I get a paycheck for services rendered.

Teaching is something I’m passionate about but at the end of the day, my family is my life.

We are forever made to feel like our lives need to revolve around teaching. I have done so much beyond my contract hours this year, for free. It makes me sad.

I’m tired.

Love, an exhausted teacher. Thanks @tiffinthemiddle for speaking such truth.

Do you have to give spelling tests?

How many words? Sentences?

I give progress spelling. Throughout the nine weeks we progress monitor the spelling we’ve taught and readjust and reteaching as we see trends. We also look at writing workshop and how it correlates to that as well. I don’t give a “grade” for spelling until the end of the nine weeks so they can spend time learning the features.

This has 6-15 words and with or without 2 sentences. Dm for link or put http://bit.ly/japgspell in your browser. You can go to @justaprimarygirl and the 🔗 and my IG feed and this photo.

The fox with glasses. 🤣🤣 I love it.

I love when they all pick their colors and make crafts their own.

I usually don’t give an an example because I want them to choose and glue where they want.

I’ll share the ones that were 100% creative in stories. 🤣

Are you allowed to copy on construction paper????

WE ARE NOT. 😒 where’s my ditto machine?!?!🤣😂 total bummer.

I GET why, but it still makes me sad that all the cute templates that I make can’t be printed.

This is available (with the printable feathers that have writing lines printed on them) along with two cutie writing templates.

If I get “one more task”, without one being taken away….I’ll curse under my breath, nod and go cry in my room. 🥴I thought this rang true in 2016 when I made this.

How do you handle this? What book do you love to read but everyone has heard or someone always spoils?

We always read Let Me Finish at the start of the year and before every popular book, I say, don’t spoil the ending, or keep it to yourself, yadda yadda. Every time, I have someone either whispering the whole book to their friend or yelling to everyone.

It makes me search for older, unappreciated books or brand new that no one has seen.

How was your weekend?

Had a great dinner Friday and Saturday followed by pjs all day today.

My Sunday has been stripped away with planning. Something I rarely do on weekends, but endless emails, to dos, trainings and interrupted planning time has left me no choice if I want things ready for Monday.

Do you plan on the weekend?

Watching your video is giving me stress! Haha!! Why not try giving yourself a 5 min timer every day to work on after this session? It’s doable, short enough to feel ok, you can do a lot in 5 min I bet!
