Our bug unit is nowhere near over! We’ve been enjoying bug centers all week and going on bug hunts! Here’s just a taste of our fun! I’m linking up with Doodlebugs!
1. We sucked up bugs in our bug vacuum earlier this week. I swear, the bugs are not harmed in this process. Ha!
2. We are well into our end-of-year countdown. 13 DAYS LEFT!
3. My real life friend and coworker, Kimberly Ann surprised me with a TPT gift cert for my birthday. We’re going to PARTY HARDY this Sunday to celebrate!
4. Our Alphabet Countdown continues with our letter-of-the-day SILLY HATS!
5. Last, but DEFINITELY not least- I’m so proud to participate in Teachers Notebook’s Moore Relief effort bundle. 100% of proceeds go to those affected by this tragedy.
I donated my Snap Block Math pack and so far TN has raised over $40,000! So awesome!
And because of all of our bug fun this week, I thought I’d make a mini-pack to go along with what we’re doing. Hope you can get some use out of it. You know how much I LOVE tpt feedback, if you download.

But try to look objectively at your teaching. Step into whatever discomfort you might feel—and ask yourself, honestly, why you’re feeling that way.
This work isn’t easy. It takes time and patience and a relentless commitment to being critical of ourselves and the systems around us. I have often caught myself falling into bad habits, and I must continue to work actively to decolonize my own assumptions of what is considered valuable.
While these questions are structured in list form, inclusive practices cannot be reduced to a checklist. For example, an inclusive curriculum cannot be achieved by simply checking off a list of diverse authors and texts. Instead, inclusive practices must infuse every part of our pedagogy.
Asking ourselves these questions is a necessary first step—yet it is only a step. The real work begins when we take action." -Tricia Ebvaria
Our kids NEED to know numbers in many different ways. Some groups just do the 1-5 version of these activities. Some do 1-10 with tallies. To push this group further, they took shapes and dot patterns and ordered the numbers greatest to least. SO MANY WAYS TO DIFFERENTIATE. This is easily my favorite number sense pack. bit.ly/numbersensepackFB... See MoreSee Less
