  • Gordon Korman is the best! I loved reading his books to my kids. Read aloud was my favorite part of the day. We would all gather on the carpet and dive into a book together. I always loved when I would go to close the book and my kids would shout, “nooooo!” I miss them. I miss their laughter filling our home sweet classroom! 🤍
.
I need your help! I was reading this story to my kids but I am no longer able to record myself reading. What have you been doing in order to read aloud to your kiddos? I know my kids miss it and so do I. 🤍

  • We’ve all heard: “But I don’t like doing math.  Why do I have to learn this?  When am I ever going to use this in real life?” What do we say to this?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • If I would have known this was going to be our last class pic for awhile I would have made it less candid and more uniform so I could see each kiddo’s face. ⁣
⁣
On the other hand, the naturalness of this pic brings me so much joy and honestly it’s the only thing motivating me here lately. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⁣
⁣
These are scary times. Yeah, things could be worse, but what makes it scary is the unknown of it all. Why is it so easy to comfort these kiddos and hard to comfort myself? ⁣
⁣
Trying to give myself grace and take it day by day. I just repeat over in my head that we’ve got this, even when you don’t think you do! ⁣
⁣
Also, my kiddo who looks like he just lost his puppy? Yeah it’s all an act, he does that face in every picture 🤣 I miss them all!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

  • I was allowed in my classroom for 50 minutes today for the first time in three weeks. Let me tell you, that was a mix of emotions! I packed up my suit cases with what I could use to try and bring as much of our safe space to this whole distance teaching/learning.
•
My goal is to create that safe space again with these kids before the year is up! 💛

  • The power of technology never ceases to amaze me! Before school let out we had just started learning about the Civil War. During this time of distance learning our district would still like us to incorporate social studies in to our online lessons... in one of my ELA lessons this week we took turns reading pages from the story Pink and Say by Patricia Pollaco. I shared my screen on Zoom and each child had a chance to read a page. While they were listening I encouraged them to type questions in the chat box that popped in to their heads. I was amazed at how engaged they were with this story! We definitely had a much deeper conversation during this read aloud than we have with any other! It was so sweet to watch all their faces as we read too. The more time we spend apart the more I learn about these amazing kids!

  • Reminiscing on some of our dress up days 😢. This is a people job. And social distancing is not easy for those of us who thrive on daily interactions. I’m so grateful to have @zoom_video_communications to still stay in touch with my teacher besties. Especially since one is about to have a baby!

  • It’s hard to put into words what we teachers are feeling during this time. I would do anything to go back to this room, to sit on the carpet and read together and to hug my kids one more time. 🤍
.
This year, 𝚒𝚗 𝚘𝚞𝚛 𝚌𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚜𝚛𝚘𝚘𝚖𝚜, has been cut short but the impact we made on our students has not been. They may have closed our schools buildings but the teaching must go on. One day at a time, by putting one foot in front of their other, we will bring the magic back to our kids. They will never forgot the impact we have made and the way we helped them get through this tough time. If you have been following my teaching journey for awhile you know my goal is to make every year the 𝚋𝚎𝚜𝚝 𝚢𝚎𝚊𝚛 𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚛. Well I still have that goal for the 2019-2020 school year and I know I can still give that to my kiddos. 🤍
.
Please let me know how I can be praying for you. We will rise together 🤍

  • My heart if 𝙵𝚄𝙻𝙻 🤍
.
Today I FaceTimed one of my favorite coworkers @teaching_stepbystep and we created a digital science game for our students! It felt so nice to talk, laugh and plan. Man do I miss my coworkers. 🤍
.
This is a whole new world for all of us teachers but I just want to say thank you to everyone for pushing each other  everyday. This platform always inspired me but now has it helped me get through one of the toughest  times I think we will experience as teachers. So never forget how amazing you are!!!! 🤍

  • Happy mail! I got my picture books and next read aloud in the mail today. Yes mom, I wiped them down with Clorox as soon as I opened them 😂
.
I cannot wait to share these stories with my students on zoom. I ordered some picture books so they are short and sweet and then The Unteachables because it’s incredible. My kids love Gordon Korman! What are your favorite picture books? I might need to order some more. 😍

  • Room transformations ignite my teacher heart!! I did this room transformation the day before we left and I loved it. So my new challenge is how to bring that 𝕞𝕒𝕘𝕚𝕔 into my students homes! How are you bringing 𝕞𝕒𝕘𝕚𝕔 to your kids daily?

Tag one person who you have found bringing the 𝕞𝕒𝕘𝕚𝕔 home. My shoutout is to @maniacsinthemiddle who is currently recording her new science unit in a costume! Thank you Joise for inspiring my science teacher heart!

Or does he want to hire the employee who stays focused and is efficient with his time.  He has the project on the boss’ desk two days early.  And he asks what else he can do to help his boss.  Which employee would the boss hire?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Alright upper elementary/middle school students, I need your help! Since I’m stuck at home because of this whole virus shutdown, I thought it would be a good idea to play hide and go seek with my 2 year old daughter Myers. BAD IDEA. I’ve been looking all over and can’t find her anywhere! To make matters worse, my wife Jenni will be home from work soon, and if I don’t find Myers by then I’ll be in BIG trouble. So here is what I need you to do. Open up the Google Video Escape Room Below and for every Language Arts question you get right, you will help me search an area for Myers. Hopefully, with your help, we can find Myers before Jenni gets home! We don’t have anytime to waste, let’s get started: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Y8EyXG4bYA8sJNYxo1FbhTj7jrlW0pxmLYwiBMdbAbU PLEASE SHARE WITH ANY FAMILY OR TEACHER WHO MAY FIND THIS RESOURCE HELPFUL #setthestagetoengage #gyto #elementaryteacher #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #elearning #ela #readingisfun #rockyourschool

  • •Peace•

It’s been something that’s been very hard to find in the past week. The main question running through my head is why is everything I’m passionate about being ripped out of my hands? I bet a lot of us teachers are feeling this way... confused, frustrated, worried and so much more. Well yesterday in the midst of these questions and feelings I came across this song called Peace by Amanda Cook. The words were exactly what I needed to hear. They reminded me of EXACTLY who my God is and he is giving me Peace beyond all understanding. Peace is a promise he keeps!!!!🙌🏻 Listen to this song if Peace is something you’ve been struggling to find and share with me any encouragement you have found.
Xoxo- Ashton

  • •Peace•
    .
    It’s been something that’s been very hard to find in the past week. The main question running through my head is why is everything I’m passionate about being ripped out of my hands? I bet a lot of us teachers are feeling this way... confused, frustrated, worried and so much more. Well yesterday in the midst of these questions and feelings I came across this song called Peace by Amanda Cook. The words were exactly what I needed to hear. They reminded me of EXACTLY who my God is and he is giving me Peace beyond all understanding. Peace is a promise he keeps!!!!🙌🏻 Listen to this song if Peace is something you’ve been struggling to find and share with me any encouragement you have found.

  • This is that time of year where you have pretty much finished the meat of your curriculum so you are able to find fun ways to review curriculum.  More importantly you are able to have fun and make memories.  I’m still holding out hope we won’t be robbed of that this year! I’ve had more than half of my class since 3rd and 4th grade and the other half I haven’t had long enough.  #buildrelationships #highexpectations #roomtransformations #rockyourschool

  • I’m feeling so sad after posting pictures for parents from our Math Madness day. This is what we ended on before school was closed. It makes me happy to know we ended on a good note rather than a fearful note. But... I didn’t know that was going to be the last time I was going to see my kids for at least 3 weeks. My heart breaks... I wish I could hug them and tell them I am here for them. This is a journey no teacher ever expected to be on but I am so happy to be apart of this community. The encouragement is keeping me going in one of the crazy times of our lives. 🏀
.
Please let me know how I can be praying for you during this time. I know we serve an amazing God and he is in control right now. 🤍

  • Today a student came running in to class saying, “I bought you a present!” This 10 year old boy used his own money from his piggy bank to get a new class set of 18 fidgets. Our other fidgets had gotten old, gross, broken, and lost. He was so excited to do this for us and I am so appreciative! Happy Thursday! ❤️😍 . .

ETA. My student found these on Amazon. When I ordered a pack last year I also got them from Amazon. If you search “mesh and marble fidget” you will be able to find them! They are great and my fifth graders love them. Two of my children (ages 4 and 7) also use them at home when reading, coloring, doing homework, etc. These are great for all ages! 😊

  • I was allowed in my classroom for 50 minutes today for the first time in three weeks. Let me tell you, that was a mix of emotions! I packed up my suit cases with what I could use to try and bring as much of our safe space to this whole distance teaching/learning.
•
My goal is to create that safe space again with these kids before the year is up! 💛

  • Alright STOP, collaborate and listen. Rock Your School’s back for a brand new edition. 🤘🏻👾
Today we threw it back to the 90’s with a Block, Block Party!! We made mix tapes of the different ways to represent numbers, completed a place value challenge/breakout, learned that slime is a polymer that has the characteristics of both a solid and a liquid, used cootie catchers to discuss the structure of a story, had a lesson on M.A.S.H. then played it to choose our writing, and finally wrote “sentences by the foot” to practice subjects and predicates. Today was too legit!! 💾📼💿
Shoutout to @cutiepatwoziehq for the inspiration and 90’s themed math tasks! 💚

  • This is our month to celebrate a lil extra! 😌😏
•
Did you know that this American observation began in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson and it was only a week long? It was later expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to 30 days.🇺🇸❤️
•
It runs [September 15 - October 15] because today is Independence Day for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. 🇨🇷🇸🇻🇬🇹🇳🇮

What do y’all have planned this month?! I’m thinking of using this as my theme for Thursday’s #rockyourschool
