Who out there loves 𝒞𝒜𝐿𝐿 and 𝑅𝐸𝒮𝒫𝒪𝒩𝒮𝐸 📣? Such a fun way to get student attention!
AND...What's more fun than combining 📣 Call & Response with ⚓ Anchor Charts?

🛑 Do you create anchor charts for classroom managment???✍🏻I do!👩🏻🎨I love to brainstorm together as a class some of their favorite attention getters to mix things up. 🧠⚡I also like to have a few go-to attention getters and use them for different parts of the day. 📢📢📢For example, one of my student jobs is reading the lunch menu for the day and it goes like this:🔔Lunch announcer:🗣 “Macaroni and Cheese”🧒🏻👦🏽👧🏼Class: 🗣 “Everybody Freeze”.🕚🕚🕚.During science, when I’m explaining a procedureI say:👩🏻🔬: “I need a moment of...”Class: 🗣 “SCIENCE!” (instead of silence) #imsopunny
😂👀👀👀..Let’s start our own brainstorming sesh in the comments...LMK what YOUR favorite attention getters are ⤵...PS this anchor chart is from my #anchorcharts
book available where ever books are sold (link in bio)...PSS: if you make this, make everything but the responses so you can fill them in together as a class when you are teaching them the attention getters...
I had the best laid plans today but of course it doesn't look anything like I had imagined.
My team decided to host a book tasting today to teach out kiddos about different genres. I had ordered checkered table cloths, place card stands, and tea lights to give it the true restaurant feel but Amazon Prime didn't quite make it. Two days turned into 9 now and it will all be delivered tomorrow.
You know what though? My kids were so excited when they walked in and saw it all regardless of the vision I had wanted to create. They enjoyed every second of our tasting and talked about it all day!
So use this as a reminder that everything doesn't have to look Pinterest perfect all the time to be a successful lesson. My kids never knew the difference and I don't think it would have made a difference in their excitement. We'll put away the items when they arrive tomorrow for our next book tasting which they have already requested happen soon!
I shared this resource that I created for rate of change and slope when I was brainstorming a project with some teachers today. If you’d like a copy, click the link in my profile then “My blog” for the materials, learning target/success criteria, and read below for how it works:
1. Group students in a group of 2 or 3.
2. Each student will get a different paper (swipe to see them all), but every student starts by looking at the graph section.
3. Start a timer, and tell students to work first on completing the table. Students will all work in the same section so they can discuss any strategies or questions.
4. Then tell the students to pass their paper in a circle (or to their partner) and repeat the process with the calculating section, prompting students to check the previous work and explain any parts they are unsure of before moving to their new section.
5. Pass the paper and repeat one more time for the last section.
The last practice is a challenge that can be given to groups or individuals where students will make up their own scenario.

Repost from Tally Challenge Lab: My first grade friends had a BLAST hanging out with Botanist Bert today! They can't wait to watch their flowers over the next few days to see what happens!! #TallyBEST #KISDBEST #STEMifyYourLifeKISD
Teachers are amazing and wear so many hats...but y’all....we are NOT doctors. We have to stop telling parents, students, and other teachers that students need meds. It’s not our place to think or say it.
I AM NOT SAYING that there aren’t cases where children/students DO need meds. I am only saying it’s not my place to say whether they do or not.
We may have students that we don’t understand ...or maybe we are expecting things from them that aren’t developmentally appropriate...but meds are not the answer. And if they are, it’s not our place to say so!
It breaks my heart to see so many kids put on medication when they have no choice or say in the matter if it’s not necessary. Personally, I’ve had at least 3 kids that have come to me & all the teachers tell me they need meds but either parents refused or just didn’t give them. Every one of those students have been just fine after some time... I give credit to Whole Brain Teaching because it really engages all learners and reaches all learning styles. It also meets kids where they’re at. Whatever the case, I never have & never will say a child needs meds.
I think sometimes the parents & teachers are at a loss on how to help kids but I beg you...please don’t let meds be the first thing you turn to because YOU don’t know what else to do! I also think sometimes our curriculums don’t allow our kids to be kids. Whatever the case, let’s change our goggles and do what we can & let the doctors do what they do💜
