This Week At School

Shortened week of school this week due to Victoria Day on Monday (a day off for us Canadians) so we got our garden planted (just in time for the on and off rain we've had this week)!

This week at school I..

- Was in the same school for 3 out of the 4 working days! 

- read an entire book (since I was in the same school for those 3 days I borrowed a book from the teacher I was in for the first day during a reading period and continued reading it during my preps and other reading periods over the next couple of days). The book was "Destined to Live" by Ruth Gruener which tells the story of the holocaust from someone who was in hiding.

- Took a class outside to enjoy one of the nicer days we had this week!

- Taught in middle years classes (grades 6 and 7) all week

- Found this interesting quote chart. It's on a roll of paper and the teacher does change it (I was in for her a couple of weeks ago and the quote was different) which I thought was cool... I'll be doing a blog post soon as to how she incorporates the quotes she writes on here into her classroom.

Inspiring quotes for your classroom

- Found this bulletin board in one of the classrooms this week

End of the year bulletin board

After a quick search I was able to find out more about it and what one teacher did was put a student name in each balloon and as the balloons get popped they spent the day celebrating that student. Another idea is to put fun activities to do inside the balloons. I was a little confused as this bulletin board had 16 balloons on it (with only 3 or so popped already) and I know for certain that there are more than 16 days of school left!

Found in a Teacher's Classroom

Because it's an important thing for EVERYONE to know... not just students.

To see other quotes I've found in teacher's classrooms click here, here, and a personal favourite here.

Plants are In!

In case you missed it... plants are in!  
They are in office spaces, homes, classrooms, and gardens (duh..)
 but more so than ever before (in my opinion at least).  
Not only are real plants in but so are plant decorations...

I've been holding on to these pictures for a while 
(you'll be able to tell by the month that the calendar was on)

succulent classroom calendar

Succulent word wall

I'm not exactly sure where this teacher got her word wall or calendar from but if you search up succulent calendar or word wall you'll get some options!

I've also posted about a teachers plant inspired giant desk calendar and how other teachers are incorporating plants (both real and fake) into their classrooms

Psst... where I live it's officially considered "safe" to plant our gardens! 
Do you have a garden?  If so what are you planting this year?
We're doing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, asparagus, zucchini, strawberries, and raspberries!

This Week At School

This week at school...

- I was at a new to me school this week and 2 new to me classrooms!
- I subbed for the gym teacher I had in elementary school (who is now teaching middle school)!
- I was a guidance councillor one day (which meant I got to teach health to some classrooms... it was a good day)!
- I was also a middle years teacher
- And I was a kindergarten teacher
- I subbed for a teacher that really utilizes her smart board! Even when a sub was in for her... which is awesome! I've never had a classroom of my own with a SmartBoard so I haven't really had to learn how to properly use one... but I do know how to use it enough to get by when I sub.
- I had a student bring me in a "flower"
-  I also put on Storyline Online for my students and psst.. if you haven't looked at it in a while they've been adding a lot of new books lately so it's definitely worth another look!

It's a long weekend up here in Canada so no school on Monday (and I already have the rest of my week filled up already)!
