Getting notebooks setup the first week of school is always fun to me! I always have a data, notes, and writing tab. We are also going to make the big “I” on the inside page and they will also include a genre chart. What are your things you must include inside them?

If remixes give songs more life. – could remixing in our classroom give education more life? Could remixing our teaching give learning more life?⠀
⠀
There may not be a how-to manual, but we can talk about where to start.⠀
⠀
Change one thing by:⠀
⠀
Adding⠀
Shifting⠀
Removing⠀
Realigning⠀
Connecting Differently⠀
⠀
One element, one component, and let it play out with your student.⠀

We loved this blog by Kim at TeachBetter.com! So many great ideas! Double Tap!

I am guilty of spending days. Not decorating; I keep things pretty simple; but hanging things up, organizing, labeling, etc. I know there won't be time for any of that once the year starts so I try to spend a lot of time before school starts to set myself up for success.

Four months after the job fair, and it’s still so hard for me to believe that I teach at SLHS. And to think I almost walked past their booth to go home and admit defeat. Just goes to show that God has bigger and greater plans for us, but we have to show that we trust him by taking that first step of courage. #iteachtenth #secondaryela #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #englishteacher #iteachela #iteachtoo #teachersofIG #teachersofthegram #teacher #empower #teacherlife #teachertribe #iteachhighschool #teachergram #teach #teaching #teachers #iteachenglish #blackteachers

🤸🏽‍♀️Do your kids get recess every day? How many minutes per day do they get!?

If I can’t sit still all day, I can’t ask my students to sit still all day. Fun fact: I also have my PE degree! An awesome book to on movement and the brain is called Spark! I’ve talked about it before too because I truly loved it!

I first heard of Jordan Reeves (@jordanjustright) at the end of this school year. A couple 5th graders came into our classroom and asked us to sign a petition to get @americangirlbrand to offer limb different dolls. They proceeded to tell us all about Jordan and why her story mattered to them.
.
Jordan is a great role model for kiddos, and I thought her book, Born Just Right, was wonderful. Jordan is a 13 year old who was born with a limb difference. She encourages readers to seek out and interact with others with physical differences (LOVE this term, as opposed to physical disabilities) and to not be held back by their challenges. She’s a huge advocate for STEAM and loves design. She designed a pretty rad unicorn arm that shoots glitter, and I’m obsessed. 🦄
.
Be sure to check out Jordan’s book (affiliate link in my bio)! You can follow Jordan @jordanjustright, her mom and coauthor Jen  @jenleereeves, and their nonprofit Born Just Right @bjrorg.

One of the top questions I get asked is where I find my colorful binders for a reasonable price! The answer: Target or Amazon! These are at Target for a great price!

If you are considering color-coding your classroom, colored binders are a game changer! I have my classroom set around 4 main colors:

Yellow- Math
Orange- Social Studies
Green- Science
Pink- Reading

This keeps me organized when it comes to where materials are stored, what section of their binder students should be working in and my grab and go standards are colored too!! Do you color code your classroom or student materials?

Spooky, huh? This is one of my favorite places in Paris, so naturally, I wanted to share it with my students! Check out this Abandoned Places assignment. After reading a nonfiction article about ten abandoned places (including the Catacombs!), students choose one as the setting for a piece of flash fiction. .

Book club discussions became fun when my students got to play a game at the same time. Our meetings always happened with me in the group and helping as needed. However, by the end of the 8 weeks, my students could lead book club discussions on their own! (Link in the profile)#backtoschool

Since I have so much more space in my room this year, I truly wanted to make it my own, so I did... I have been slowly creating my own classroom decor, and these 10 drawer organizer labels might be my favorite addition so far! ✨
.
.
On top of these labels, I have added teacher toolbox labels, motivational classroom posters, FREE editable classroom rules posters, and editable hall passes. I put all of these items together into one big Classroom Decor Bundle, and you can find it in my TpT store! 💕
.
.
What I love most about this decor bundle is that the pastel colors can go with anything! I love that my labels and posters don’t just stick me in a corner where I can only buy certain things to match. I can buy any decor to go along with these staple items! ☀️

My daughter and I stopped by our favorite indie-bookstore to pick up the Global Read Aloud selection for middle school, ‘The Bridge Home’ by @venkatraman.padma. While there, we were gifted with some incredible picture books for our school library! Seth and his staff are so generous, and we are so very grateful! I can’t wait to share them with the K-8 students in library, and 6-7-8 students in Language Arts! 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Summer Book number 21: realistic fiction. I never would have picked this book up were it not for a good friend’s recommendation.  Finley lives in a town faced with racial tensions, drugs, violence, poverty, and the Irish mob. Basketball is his life. His coach asks him to look after a new kid, Boy 21, struggling with the loss of his parents. Tragedy strikes and Finley is the one in need of support. This book is real: touching, intense, raw. Highly recommend! #30booksummer #iteachela #iteachreading #iteachintervention #boy21 #matthewquick

PSA: If you’re not in back-to-school mode, keep scrolling on your merry way...but if you are, then hi, hello! 🤗 Since I still don’t know what I’m teaching yet, I’m thinking ahead to my digital syllabus! It’s one of the few things I can start designing without knowing my specific course & curriculum. I want to take the visual/infographic factor from these syllabus brochures and create some kind of interactive digital syllabus...whether that’s a PDF with visual links to resources, a “meet your teacher” video, a Padlet for students to get to know each other, etc. or a Google site that students can bookmark and reference throughout the entire year. Let me know if you have any cool digital syllabus ideas in the comments! I would love to hear all about them! 💗 PS: If you want more info on my thoughts on syllabus design, head to my stories from today!

SELF GOAL: be more organized this year. 
Im at the point in my summer where I totally want to keep doing nothing, but I know if I don’t start organizing myself now I will regret it! I went to PD yesterday to learn about our #newteks in Texas and I was thrilled to bring my new planner. 
My #erincondren planner came in the mail earlier this week and like most teachers, I got pretty giddy! I have ordered this planner since I was in college. Last year I bought into the hype of the #happyplanner and ended up ordering that, but I really just didn’t like it. My pages would fall out (maybe because I’m a hot mess) and I didn’t ever add any pages in. I just missed the durability of the life planner. Excited to have it back this year, but I’ll still use #happyplanner stickers.

🐛 Are you looking for a way to escape the heat and engage your creativity? Visit the Eric Carle exhibit at The Chrysler Museum. Now I want to draw and paint. And figure out how to work some of his books into next year’s lesson plans. 🎨 #ncstory #veryhungrycaterpillar #ericcarle #iteachela

Please help me select a classroom theme. 🎉 So this year, I am starting over at a new school in Texas!  Yes, we are moving across country (again) next week from Florida to “Big D.” So here is my question... I’ve never had a classroom theme but want to give it a try this year.  I found a few classroom theme ideas that I liked and wanted to hear back from you on which direction you think I should go in.  Note that I teach seniors in high school so am looking for something suitable for that age group. 🎉 Option #1:  Farmhouse Theme (I won’t be too far from the Magnolia Silos, so I could totally pull this off!)
🎉 Option #2:  Black and white with a POP of teal or turquoise.  All good colors!
🎉 Option #3:  Simple black and white and RAE DUNN EVERYTHING!
🎉 Option #4:  The Rainbow Room— I have a four-year-old so am used to rainbows 🌈 by now 😂. But I could totally use this concept to represent multiculturalism, diversity, and tolerance.
🎉 Option #5:  Green and Teal— both very soothing colors.
🎉 Option #6:  Not shown— but I love antique books and wanted to do an antique classroom with an old typewriter and school desk and quill/ink pen etc . Am I crazy? 
So what do you think?  Feedback appreciated!

If you're not failing in your classroom, you're not taking enough risks.⠀
⠀
Calculated risks are essential in the classroom. With data supported techniques accessible as close as your phone, its unacceptable to stick to old ways when we know we can do better. ⠀

you are better. ⠀

Whats the next calculated risk you are going to step out of your comfort zone to try? How will it positively impact learning?

👆🏽👆🏽*Double Tap* if you are beginning the year with narrative writing! I love teaching it because my students can explore the genre and share personal accounts of their very own life!!
✏️We love using our writing center! While these posters come large, I prefer printing them mini and putting them on binder rings to make them portable around the room!
✏️✏️I am also creating a writing center folder that I’ll show you all when I’m home from Africa! 🙌🏽 My students love using all the matching paper choices, too! 📝📝📝

Much like the Spellbook of the Lost and Found shows up for the characters in the novel, it also somehow ended up in my hands. This eerie, supernatural journey pushes the bounds of loyalty, reality and time for a group of Irish teens. This book does not shy away from tough subjects. It largely handles these things without judgment from parents or friends, giving its characters the time and space they need to really discover the power of choice. This was a different journey than I’m used to and I enjoyed the ride! If you’ve read it, or think you’d like to, let me know what you think!

NOTE: I would not recommend this for younger teens, and 17-18+ would likely be most appropriate if we were thinking in terms of movie ratings. As a parent, even if I had been warned with a “pay attention to what your child reads” letter like I send home, I would be upset if this was an available choice for grades 6-10. That said, I had a 9th grader last year with an old soul and some pretty tough adultish experiences under her belt...I would have maybe given it to her!

I knocked this book out in a day—it was just the right book I was looking for at the moment. Nothing too heavy, but with still enough interest.

It’s about a girl named Lena as she grapples with how actions and inactions can have devastating consequences. There’s also a romance storyline with “the boy next door”. Nothing groundbreaking here, but still would be something I’d recommend.

Can I move into this beautiful classroom now?! @4thgradeunicorns Elizabeth has quickly become one of my favorite people to learn from for some many reasons but let me tell you my favorite 3! 1. She creates an atmosphere of love, comfort, and joy for her students! 2. She works so hard to share the most engaging novels that reach ALL students! 3. She is an organization queen and I’ve gotten so many ideas from her inspiring posts! Elizabeth is also sharing her IVF journey with our community- praying so so hard for her dream to come true 💚💚💚 Head on over and say hey! You will feel instantly connected! .

Hi y’all! My name is Morgan Beard & I’ve had this account for over a year. 🙃 I’m nervous to start sharing but also so inspired. I thought that summer & the beginning of the school year would be the BEST time to start. 
Allow me to introduce myself 👩🏼‍🏫 1️⃣: I am going into my 6th year of teaching. I have taught sophomores, seniors, and seventh graders. 
2️⃣: Teachergram is not my only new adventure. I’m starting out at a new school in my hometown. I commuted 45+ minutes for the past five years. My drive to school is now three minutes 🤗 
3️⃣: I am married to Jonathan and we have a beautiful baby girl 💕
4️⃣: I love to chat books, enneagram, and travel. 
5️⃣: I’m soaking up the last few days of summer while constantly thinking about all of the NEW CHANGES coming my way. 
How are you spending your summer days? Are you still in summer mode or already in back to school mode? 📚🤷🏼‍♀️☀️ #iteachmiddleschool #iteacheighth #iteachela #iteachtoo #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachermom #2ndaryela #secondaryela #teachergram

Road trip essentials 🚙🛣 August 1 is quickly approaching and I haven’t spent much time planning. Hoping to find some ideas for daily or weekly practices in this book. Making the transition from middle to high school after 16 years makes me nervous 😬 but also very excited 😆 
What are you looking to do different next school year? .

I am so thankful for the opportunity to learn so much from the #teachergram community. 🍎 It’s been about a year since I’ve joined you, and I am so grateful for the free PD I’ve gotten from y’all’s posts from the comfort of my apartment. I enjoy reading those light bulb 💡 teacher moments you have, seeing your cute classroom 👩‍🏫 pictures, and cheering for your kiddos 📣 when they’re attempting to learn a new skill. And, let’s face it, the “Girl, you’ve got this!” posts at the end of the school year were total life-savers! 💜 
As much as I don’t want my summer vacation ☀️ to end, I’m slowly trying to get myself in the school mindset. 🧠 
Right now, I’m making bulletin board letters! I just don’t want to wait ⏳ in line to make letters with the one machine at our school this year. This is my first attempt, and the letters seem SO small. Does anyone else print 🖨 and cut ✂️ their own letters old-school style? What size font do you use? ❓

Picked up my new classroom posters from Staples today! I made all of these earlier this summer and sent them to Staples to be printed on 11x17 paper... with lamination they come to about $3 each 😱

I’ve always seen people RAVE about these make-up removers as white board erasers! So my last stop at the @dollartree I picked some up!! I’m so excited they had a bunch of pretty colors & they look so much cuter than my socks 😂 •

Me ignoring all responsibilities and savoring the last two and a half weeks of summer. Last summer, I was so bored and lonely, but this summer I have enjoyed reading and laying in the air conditioning and staying up late. I don't know what switch flipped, but I have loved every moment of this summer spent quietly to myself. I'm going to need time to slow down; PD starts August 5th, and I hope it takes its time getting here! When do you go back? First year teachers, are you excited, scared, in shock? I'm still new too, but feel free to reach out! ❤️

I’m still on what my husband and I call our “Great Florida Vacay” — BUT I can’t stop thinking about using these beauties in my classroom 😻😻 I shared these amazon products a few days ago over on stories, but I just HAD to share them again. 😬😬 Honestly, I think I’m most excited about this bookshelf - so stinking precious and UNDER $30! It came in a ton of different sizes and colors, too!✨ The dry erase pockets are a VERY close second, though. It was $25 for 30 pouches and 100 lamination pouches in a bundle 🤗🤗 What have been your favorite Amazon finds this summer?! I can’t wait to share I get to use these in my classroom this year!! 🤩• #amazonfinds #teachersloveamazon #bookshelf #teachercart #dryerasepouches #lettertrays #rosegold #teacherfinds #amazonteacherfinds #iteach #iteachthird #iteachela #iteachreading #iteachwriting #teachersofinstagram #instagramteachers #thirdgradeteacher

Beach bar, book, lunch and some alone time in between work experience visits today. This week has been Just what I needed. We don’t break up until next Thursday (!!) And then a summer of family time and family visits as well as endless house projects. Just stated this book- so far, so good. I love Kate Morton’s characters, plots and the fact that she always has a dual narrative spanning time periods. Not one do the classroom necessarily but just for me.#bookstagram #book #reading #currentlyreading #teachersofinstagram #teacher #teacherofig #ukteacher #ukteachersofig #secondaryteacher #secondaryela #iteachenglish #iteachela #iteachmiddleschool #2ndaryela

Today’s swim lessons read. I’m finding great passages and brief essays to use for Honors-10 and a writing course I’ll teach in the fall. I’m looking at ways we can look closely at language and what it can do—building on the good bones of previous courses I’ve taught (and discarding much that didn’t work). I’ve made some Google Slides where I’m passage collecting—great moves made by the pros that we can practice together in our own writing. I plan to practice alongside them, not only so I can continue to build my own writing muscles but also to model and show practicing doesn’t always have to result in perfect writing. There are lessons in failure too.

And here we have just SOME of my #targetdollarspot finds 💁🏼‍♀️ When I came home with 5 bags from Target - of just stuff for my #classroom - my husband told me I’m no longer allowed to go back 🤦🏼‍♀️😅... Good thing I’ll be in the Philippines until two days before school starts, so I won’t even have access to #target 🤣 #teacherprobs
