Basically BUSTING out of this onesie 🙈 time for some new ones 😂 I rounded up my favorite stocking stuffers for baby and kids on the blog today with @nordstrom! My favorite burp cloths, bibs, and a few things I purchased for the kids this year are on there! This onesie is my favorite brand and they’re so soft. They have some striped prints that are really cute too! 🎄 http://liketk.it/2tOvj #liketkit @liketoknow.it #nordstrom#ltkbaby#ltkkids#ad // COMMENT and tell me what your favorite stocking stuffer gifts are! 🎁

Special moment with my baby last night 💓 we hung up the ornament I got him last year for our first Christmas together 🎄💕
We LOVE hands-on learning 🖐🏼 Monday’s are tough. Especially this time of year. We’re excited. We’re hyper. We’re restless. With 25 fifth graders in one room, I HAD to come up with a solution. If not, my lesson plans for these next two weeks would literally read: “Scrape children from ceiling. Repeat as necessary.” Teachers, I know you feel me. 🤦🏼♀️ My goal for these next two weeks is to keep them talking and moving as much as possible. 🗣🏃🏻♂️ No one can sit still this time of year — especially kids. 💃🏼🎁🎈🎄🌟 Today, when we weren’t moving, we were talking. When we weren’t talking, we were moving. One or the other HAS to be happening at all times for our room to stay (somewhat) sane, and for learning to still be happening.
We’ve been working with the same text for a little while now. Today, we were learning about cause and effect relationships. First, we collaborated with our groups to refer back to the text and close read to match causes and effects (talking 🗣 but no moving). Then, when everyone was done, we did a gallery walk to complete our independent work. *If you don’t know, gallery walks (my favorite 😍) are when students walk around the room (like they’re in an art gallery) observing other people’s work and using their findings to complete a task.* In this case, we walked around the room, observing each group’s cause and effect poster, so that we could independently choose one cause and effect relationship to write about (moving 🏃🏻♂️ but no talking). No fighting, tears, or *major* drama, AND everyone got their work done... I’ll take it 🤩
10/10 would recommend lessons that involve talking and moving. 🗣🏃🏻♂️ 🌟Food for thought: if we continue to tell kids to sit down and be quiet, all they’ll ever learn is that they have nowhere to go and nothing important to say. Let’s turn “sit down and stop talking” into “stand up and speak out” 💪🏼 #madeinfifthgrade
