Are you thinking about how to run your classroom if it’s cleared out? So many have shared their entire room will be emptied and they are looking for EXTREME space saving tips.

Share a tip or idea below!

This is what I plan to use to hold student supplies on the side of the desks... if my ikea trofast system for cubbies is removed from the classroom to help with social distancing.

I’d also use larger ones on the front and other side for backpacks-if allowed in, lunch bags and book bins.

You can find these pouches and the command hooks I use by putting http://bit.ly/japgas in your browser or click my profile, shop my feed and this picture.

Each day I wake up with more questions. My stomach in knots. My fear of dying grows more and more with each passing day. Submitted 27 questions to our superintendent for our town hall meeting tomorrow.

I’m praying the rest of the teachers submit ones that I did, so maybe they’ll be answered.

We have to choose our fate for our children (until January) and then our fate until mid June, by Monday. No switching. We’ve been given little to no information. Will I lose my school and grade level if I choose online to keep myself and family healthy? Will I possibly teach a brand new grade level? Will PPE be provided all year? What precautions are being put in place to keep ME safe? Who will want to sub if there is active Covid in our school?

What’s the magic number of sick kids or staff that will deem it unsafe to be at school?(this isn’t an IF, it’s a WHEN)

I fear my child’s IEP going to hell in a hand basket. I believe we are all suffering socially & emotionally.

I’m scared. I fear my son not being able to see his grandparents...until when?? Will he carry this to them unknowingly?

Is the media blowing this out of proportion? I’m sure. But if I’m to wear a fitted mask, face shield and goggles, is it really safe for me to be there?

What’s ONE question you’d ask your district to clarify before choosing if you (or your child ) will be hybrid or fully online? (All k-12 have chrome books now)

Our hybrid will be two cohorts in school two days each while also planning 3 days of online teaching simultaneously. Hybrid teaches group a at school while group b learns online. Then, they switch but the same teachers plans both. Fully online is all 5 online with up to 4 hours a day of computer time. (For 5 year olds)

What would you pick for you? Your child? What questions do you need answered? @jillianstarrteaching @teachfitthrive @adrienne_teaches sum up how I feel much better than I do.

Negative comments against teachers will not be tolerated.

Do you want a live prep?

What do you want to see more closely?

If you use it, what’s your most used item piece??

Regardless of if we’re online or in person, I’ll be doing running records with students, so this is something I’ll be prepping.

This is my teacher guided reading pack. I’ve discounted it today. It has SO much more than what is shown here!!!

10th birthday. In quarantine. During a global pandemic.

This scroll through memory lane has my tears rolling.

This boy. He has changed me in so many ways. He gives me hope. I can only pray that children are as kind, loving, supportive and caring to him as he is to everyone he meets. He is unconditional in his love of everything and everyone.

He gave me strength when I didn’t realize I had any left. He makes me better. He makes me fight for other kids like him.

I would give anything to rock him to sleep one more time or drag me by the finger to show me something he wanted. To see him sign for more of something or sign all done.

I would move mountains to hear him mispronounce basic words, belly laugh at Sid the science kid and sing Sesame Street songs.

But I can’t wait to watch his continued growth and to watch him become a young man.

It’s funny how much a parent needs their child. 💙 I always thought it was the other way around.

Raising a child with special needs can be so hard and often lonely. This community gave me support in ways- I can never repay you. Thank you for being here with is the last 8 years!

Happy 10th Birthday Reid!

Is it helpful when I include the PNG files to files? Let me know what you would like updated to include PNG files in the comments.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
These have easy to read, picture clue sentences. They have guided practice to include a circled starting word, and also have an option for tracing lines for students just learning to write. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you currently own my early reader and writer scrambles, they have been updated to include the PNG files to be used on digital platforms! Rather than cut and glue, they can draw arrows or number them!⁠⠀

Digital or paper?

Do you think your first week will be in the classroom or distance?

No clue yet? I’m thinking I need to prep for both. Would you want this in a digital version?

Where are my second grade teachers?! First week of 2nd grade pack!!

Independent review so you can do what you need to in the morning on the first week of school.

Do you have a giant pile too? Used or unused? What WAS used?

Here is all of the stuff I brought home to “teach with”. It’s all still sitting there.

Nothing was utilized how I wanted or thought.

Everything has been used in some way, but I had to make it all digital. Everything recorded on audio. I’m so thankful for my thumb drive.

Do you have a circle punch?

It cuts through 5 mil lamination. I cut through these in under a minute.

The letters are in my letters bundle (shrunk to 40% for my small board) and they are 50% off today!

There are so many sizes of punch to choose from. I own all of them. 🙈you can find them in my amazon class link in bio.

Are you team guillotine cutter for laminated items or are you team slide paper trimmer for lamination?

Share which and why. I’ve always been team guillotine because I create with huge, solid black cut lines so there is room for error in cutting.

Share below. Do I NEED a slicer? Although are we EVER going back?!?!

Will I need laminated items anymore???

But how will I teach wearing this?

if I have to wear a mask, you know it’s a friends mask. Mine isn’t available anymore but Etsy has a ton.

Do you have a mask yet? Tag your favorite place you got a mask from so others can find quality, fast shipping masks.

Also, those roots aren’t going to dye themselves. 👀

I finally figured out Boom!!!

These are half off until tomorrow.

Want more BOOM from me? I couldn’t have done it without help. Looking at you @thedailyalphabet 🥰😘💜.

I also linked preloaded seesaw for you to include fast pin audio in seesaw. You just drop in the link. I also put in the username sign in audio directions. You pop that link in too. 💜

Want a free copy?!

Would this be helpful for your class?

I’m trying to keep it basic, clean and interactive.

I have 5 slides per strategy to practice. Here are a few questions:

Is five enough to practice?(once you add in math by myself packs or alone)

Anything else to add to this activity? You can add these to my math by myself books that you own in the fall for an interactive lesson BEFORE they practice!

To win it before it’s ready (hopefully ready tonight), just follow me, answer the questions, tag a buddy who also wants it. That’s it.

What letter are you sponsored by today?

Today is sponsored by the letter C. C for calm. This bottle is as big as it looks.

I started taking two in the morning and at night yesterday. I’m also starting Reid on them today. Along with melatonin, and “relax” gummies. Nothing seems to be helping with my lack of sleep.

I’m always amazed by people who function normally with five hours of sleep. I’d say I’m in bed 9 hours but at max, I sleep a solid one hour stretch. Maybe 2. I’m hoping this helps.

Maybe c for coffee or Confused.

Are you required by your school to record lessons or teach live? Share below!!

I’m waiting to hear from my district when we start and to what extent, but I didn’t want to not know how to do it.

Today, I’m sharing stories that are all about creating a makeshift interactive whiteboard using an iPhone or iPad and your seesaw app. I’m sharing how to set up your device and how to record yourself and use seesaw to teach your students prior to assigning the lessons!

I will save these as highlights under seesaw 2 and doc camera hack!

I am obsessively searching for any information on how I can find what pages you bind in all of the books your students use in class. Can you help me with this? LOVE your stuff!
Hi! I was watching your story about how you do your nails. Loved it! What products de you use and where can I find them?
For these crazy times.
Can you post how to do the recording from your computer again. It was post on your "Story" but now I can't find it.

Where did you get your magnetic trays?
I have a question, I am looking into the puzzlers and the work on writing bundle. I want to know if the 2 together has 2-3rd grade puzzlers? I don't know if I should buy them separate or together. I am really struggling and really want to get this started today. I am so excited but very hesitant on these big purchases?????
Hi...I have a question about a product I purchased from you a long time ago. This picture was included with the file. I was wondering how you attached the nametags to the large paper. It looks like it is 3D. TIA!
Crystal Cooper Craver Sue Cates Janna Mallett Check out her page!
Hey Hannah! Just read your post about your magnetic letter board activities and love the versatility of this set. I am a floating teacher for phonics so always on the move and looking for new games and activities to implement with my kindergarten and first grade small groups. I try to brainstorm a new idea every day so I can keep the children engaged and excited about building and reading sight and CVC words. (Each small group only gets 10 minutes together each day)I feel your set will allow me to maximize our time and learning together and keep things flexible and creative! Thanks for sharing this idea! So helpful to me as a beginning teacher. Look forward to hearing back from you on January 8th! Happy New Year of teaching opportunities! Jenny
