🖌Teacher table tips:🖌
📕I have bags for each group that has mini notebooks, mini sticky notes and mechanical pencils, even bright markers inside of them (which seems way awesome for my class because we very rarely get to write with markers!!). It makes it that much more colorful and HANDY when showing me what they know and what they have learned. I can keep it in the notebooks for referring growth and determining what concepts were grasped and which ones weren’t.
📦Hands on! Using cool pencils, colored paper, fancy erasers, squishy pointers, colored tape, glittery note pads… you name it, the kiddier looking the more fun serious stuff will
📙Finding ways to make common stories as the three little pigs new and intriguing with details they haven’t focused on before. Such as predictions of what would happen next, creation of thier own funny endings…
📌Lastly, the key to teacher table is NOT that is has to be at a table. I love teaching on the floor. It brings joy to me being with groups on their level, seeing eye to eye to them and making them feel more comfortable without the harshness of a tall teacher chair and tiny kid chairs. Teaching is about teaching the kids the best way we know how, for me, that is a good start.🎀
📮Happy Teacher “table-ing”🎉
