    072: A Guide to Small Group Teaching Organization

    Small group teaching is a great way to meet your kids at the level they are on and give them the instruction they need. But first you need to get your resources and materials in place. Typically, a small group lesson is only 15 to 20 minutes. That isn't a lot of time and you need to make the most of it.
    This episode shares some things to keep in mind as you organize a small group teaching area in your classroom.

    069: Why Organized Packing is SO Important

    069: Why Organized Packing is SO Important

    Another year has flown by and it is time to start thinking about packing up your classroom. As important as it is to ensure that your classroom is organized all year long, I think it is equally important to ensure that your classroom is organized as you pack it up. That's why I've put together a slew of posts on packing up as well as this end of year classroom pack up checklist.
    When you come back at the start of next year, you want to be able to find everything easily. I suggest packing like things together so that way when you are ready to unpack it, you are doing one "section" at a time. But...I am getting ahead of myself.

    067: Ways to Stay Productive While Teaching from Home

    067: Ways to Stay Productive While Teaching from Home

    April 2020 is a crazy time, y'all! Who thought 2020 would be the year of a global pandemic, social distancing, and canceling school?!? All of us are teaching from home right now and it can be a little difficult to find the motivation to do more than sit on the couch and eat chips all day.
    When it comes to working from home, I wouldn’t say I am an expert, but I have been doing it for over a year now and it has been trial and error, for sure. But I have found some things are a must when it comes to working in the same place you live. Let's chat about what those things are and how you can make the most of your time at home.

Disappointed

I’ve been a listener for a while now (2 years maybe?) and have always enjoyed hearing her thoughts and ideas about classroom organization, which is also a passion of mine. However, today she lost me as a listener when she stated that the lockdown due to Covid-19 was a blessing and was God’s way of telling us to slow down. As of today, 205k people have died and millions have been fired or laid off. Businesses are going under and domestic abuse rates are on the rise, yet this is a gif?!. Tell that to my students that do not have a working parent in the home and are relying on school provided bag lunches to survive. I’ve not heard a more insensitive idea that must come from a place of privilege in a very long time.

THE BEST EDUCATION PODCAST (seriously)

This podcast is seriously the holy grail of teacher podcast!!! I am currently finishing out my last semester of internship and will graduate in a couple short weeks with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Ed. I’ve listened to this podcast throughout my internship semester and it has offered so many tips and applicable advice! Also, all of the organization tips and tricks speak to my soul 💜💜💜 I would recommend this podcast to any of my teacher friends because it offers a variety of information.
