I didn't plan a STEM activity last week because it was conference week and I "forgot". I forgot on purpose really. I knew I had to plan one but pretended not to remember. I needed a science video to replace the 45 minutes that we would have been doing STEM. I also didn't plan for… Continue reading Penguin Video
I rarely teach whole group. It is a mess and they don't pay attention to me anyway. They pretend to. But I know their mind is elsewhere. My biggest pet peeve is while I am teaching whole group, the kids won't stay in their seat. They will walk up to grab the bathroom pass to… Continue reading Whole Group Teaching
I wrote yesterday's post before the school day. Today's post is about Thursday. We have had warmer weather these past couple of weeks. It is rather unusual. We have been in the 60's, sometimes 70's.

I don't think a seven year old child is ready to spend their day sitting in a chair and desk. They aren't ready to stay still and focused for that long. I have heard about flexible seating but I can't really afford some of the options. We also aren't allowed to have yoga balls or… Continue reading Flexible Seating
