This year is my 8th year of teaching and it still feels fresh and exciting every day. I have taught 2nd graders and Kindergarteners. Both are amazing for different reasons, but one thing they have in common is that there's never a dull moment. I love it!
On to the teacher talk! One of my favorite finds of the year has been GoNoodle. This website has all sorts of movement activities for kids from short brain breaks to full indoor recess videos. I have become a strong believer in the power of movement in the classroom.
The woman who leads it, Jaime, is fabulous! Yes, she is in a
onsie. She tells stories and keeps the kids engaged and moving their bodies.
There are many choices from 20 minute yoga stories to Zen Den
I hope these tips and suggestions give you some food for thought.
Until next time!
