BINGO Board: Reading on Location

How are you doing during "national homeschooling"? Times are rough, and it's become cliche', but seriously, we're all in this together! We have to embrace that saying and help one another out.  This homeschooling-thing while simultaneously working-from -home-thing is HARD. I get it! I never thought I'd be someone who found myself homeschooling. I've always said… Continue reading BINGO Board: Reading on Location

  My favorite thing about being a teacher is creating resources for my students! But, I also, admittedly, love creating resources to use at home with B.

3/18/20

It's no secret that the world is upside down at the moment. As a teacher, the remainder of the year is a little uncertain for me.  I keep getting word of what is to happen, but the next hour it quickly changes. I choose not to be anxious about it, and am just taking it… Continue reading 3/18/20

Websites for Kids

I have a 6-year-old little boy who loves to learn (particularly when it comes to Math and Science) and is always asking questions. As a teacher, learning readiness is important to me. However, I also feel strongly that our kids need to be kids, and that our society needs to pump the breaks in forcing… Continue reading Websites for Kids

Merry Christmas, Delivery Drivers

My absolute favorite part of the holidays is spreading holiday cheer to those who find themselves in stressful situations, particularly those who serve the populations of people this time of year in retail, food service, and delivery drivers!

The Birthday Party

This past weekend we experienced what will go down in our family history as "THE Birthday party". The first class party B was invited to.

Give Them A Break

  Sometimes our kids need a break from their schedule.  B is involved in Tae Kwon Do and baseball, plus he has therapies and counseling throughout the week. This makes our days after school quite busy, often resulting in us not getting home until 7:30 each night.  Some people have told me he's too busy… Continue reading Give Them A Break

Is it just me or are personality tests becoming a popular read on social media newsfeeds? I often share my personality discoveries on social media, as do many others. I love finding others who are similar to me. Maybe it makes me feel less crazy. Less manic. More normal. I'm a personality test addict. You… Continue reading Cult of Personality: Discover Who You Are & Make a Difference
