My math lesson just TANKED. I appreciate the thought though.

Divide, divide, divide! I find virtual manipulators to be effective for MOST of my students. I have actual manipulatives for students who need the physical act of separating a whole into parts. How do you use manipulatives in your classroom?

The sooner we take full responsibility for our actions, the sooner we will see the successes we desire. Daily, you can hear me shouting “What does improvement begin with?!” Not gonna lie, kids are starting to get pretty annoyed with me. Oh well, I’ll keep asking it until they stop blaming others for their failures and struggles. •

🚨NEW (SIMPLE) BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENT IDEA🚨 Recently, I have really been struggling managing behaviors in my afternoon class. My normal management strategies have not been cutting it, so I tried something new last week and I AM IN LOVE. Every scholar started the afternoon with three math counting chips displayed prominently on their desks. If a scholar exhibited a misbehavior, he/she would receive a verbal warning (Ex: “This is your warning for getting out of your seat without permission.”). *Warnings must be this explicit.* If he/she repeated the misbehavior, a chip is taken away. If any scholar lost all of their chips, they could not participate in our celebration at the end of class. Every scholar took the chips seriously, and nobody lost all of them. Thanks to these chips, we had our calmest and most productive afternoon in weeks. 😭👍

I read this winter storm is impacting a 1,500 mile stretch of the US. ❄️What’s your status? We have about ten inches and school is CLOSED tomorrow! ⛄️

If I *DON'T* plan for next week, we *WILL* have school. ❄ Saturday Night Planning. You're welcome! 😜

After an opinion writing about Apollo 11, we celebrated its 50th anniversary. With glow sticks, we listened to some audio from the mission. Afterwards, we ate Oreos (for our opinion writing), and played “Plant the American Flag on the Moon.” Fun and cheap! 🤑

#TBT to my first field trip as a first year teacher to the National Aquarium. Whew this picture takes me back as I pass these current fifth graders daily in the hallway. They grow up so fast 😢 They were so annoyed with me because I kept making them pose to get a cool pic. Where’s your favorite place to go on field trips?

That moment when everything comes together...the support system during the planning process, the details, the gorgeous historic venue you've envisioned.... Congratulations to Shelby & Jason. .

Asked for and received an @amazon laminator for Christmas. Coming in handy for this freebie from @firsttriesandsunnyskies since my students are acting like they've never heard of multiplication or division before! 😜

Finally implemented some silent hand signals in our classroom (I’m so late to the game.). These signals have ENDED “Can I get some water?” questions in the middle of my lesson. Do you use a system like this in your classroom?

Speaking of practicing kindness, have you checked out @valencia_valencia yet? She shows herself and her students a unique type of kindness by developing culturally conscious lesson plans, and always leaving space for open and honest discussion. If you're in #Baltimore, you can come hear Valencia speak about her teaching practice @marylandyinstitutecollegeofart on 1/24 at 6pm. Ticket link in bio! 📸 by @mikemorganphoto

It was quite a day, friends. Started with a 💩💩💩 explosion in baby boy’s diaper, followed by getting pulled over because BOTH of my brake lights were out (seriously?!)...And then this. We were talking about a map of Michigan when the singing started. #welcometofourthgrade Luckily, my principal has a sense of humor. And the observation is over.
.
At our meeting afterwards, my principal said he wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do, but I managed everything well. He asked if they were like that every day. I honestly replied, “Not every day. Today was a good day.” (He gave me a satisfactory- that was a win!)
.
Anyone else ever have their students do something goofy during an observation?? 🙋🏼‍♀️ #whoarethesekids #ohwaittheyremine #forbetterorworse

You are allowed to love what you do and Still. Want. More 🙌🏻

Ever since I can remember I was going to be a teacher. I've always had a passion for leading others towards something positive and watching their talents unfold. Nothing fills my heart more, or makes me feel like I have performed a job well done, than witnessing someone reach their full potential. I have a kind heart, a forgiving soul and the patience to help others succeed. I was made to teach and it was always my way to lead in a positive way. Spending your whole life knowing you were made for something is an amazing feeling but it also restricts you. Makes you feel like you're selfish for desiring more when you should be so thankful you have a career you love. Here is the thing, I am SO THANKFUL that I love teaching and I am passionate about my job. So thankful that I'll do anything to keep that passion in my life for as long as possible because so many teachers quit or lose their love for this career. Becoming a coach made me a better teacher. You see, taking care of ME every day makes me better for my students. Teaching and leading women in their health and business goals reminds me that my skills are valuable outside of the classroom and that lights my passion for leading even more. Most importantly? I've learned that this is my life and if it brings me joy then I'm allowed to freaking do it ♥️

Theme can be tricky, and I love this resource from @gigglesandgradeswithmissg to help make theme more concrete for my scholars. After reading “One Giant Leap” several times, we chose some relevant theme words by answering “What does the author want me to understand?” Scholars could easily get rid of theme words that were not supported by evidence and had good conversation about the remaining themes using evidence from the text. •

Having an awesome field trip! The nature center talked to us about habitats around us and took us on a nature walk! Love spending some learning time out of my classroom with my awesome kiddos! #teacherlife🍎 #marylandteachers #learningandgrowing #mylittledragons

I get the strangest Amazon ads. A while ago it was tiny hands for tiny hands (scroll back to see 🖐) and now..? I had to click through to see what was for sale here. 🤔Any guesses? 😂

I’ve been a full time special education teacher for 10 years. I’m also a single mom to my 14 year old daughter and soon to be 6 year old son. I decided to make changes to my lifestyle for a healthier me for my kids and I. I had to start somewhere and getting to the gym after work just wasn’t happening. I was exhausted from my special friends in my class, this year is by far the most behaviorally challenged class I’ve had and I’m done at 3:30, but I’ve got to come home and provide and be a mom to my OWN kids. So I decided, forget the gym, I’m gonna start working out at home. I thought I could do it after work, nope, I quickly found out I couldn’t bc I was so tired. So how would I fit time in for me? I starting setting my alarm for 345am!! Yup, that’s right 3:45am so I could take care of me and get a workout in before leaving for work. It’s not an easy sacrifice but it’s one I’ve made for a healthier lifestyle and I’m sticking to it! I’m done with excuses and not being consistent with myself. If I can wake up everyday at 3:45am workout, go to my full time teaching job for 8-9 hours a day, and come home to be a mom, you have no excuse to not help yourself.
Help yourself now for a better you later! Do you want to know more of what I’m doing for my workout program?

Tickets are one of my favorite positive behavior incentives. Throughout the day I pass out these blue raffle tickets to scholars for participating in discussion, walking quietly, sitting in learning position, etc. Every other week we have a ticket exchange where they can trade in their earned tickets for rewards. These kids take their tickets seriously and will do just about anything to earn some! Do you use a ticket system in your class?

I was so inspired by all the amazing resolution resources on insta, I decided to make my own! Today my scholars chose one word (a school PBIS value) as their resolution for 2019. In addition to these visuals, they wrote their reasoning and plans of action. Throughout the rest of the year, we are going to be checking in with our resolutions and writing about how we have/have not been showing it. Did you do any fun goal-setting today?

New year, new resources! “Ms. Youngson, how do I spell _____?” This question is something I want to ELIMINATE in 2019. I created this resource to give scholars another tool to help them spell words correctly. Inside of this handy book is commonly misspelled words for third graders. In addition to the already existing spelling resources in my classroom, now scholars have another opportunity to write independently (and give me a break). I am going to keep these books in team caddies that way scholars can always have them within reach. Is this something you would like to see available in my TPT store?

Hi there! My name is Emily Baker and I am a 3rd year special education teacher in Maryland. I teach in a behavioral program in a middle school! I am currently working toward my Master’s Degree in Applied Behavior Analysis with an emphasis in Autism. I am a total behavior nerd and will find the function of all of the behaviors around me. Criminal Minds is one of my favorite shows since it follows the Behavior Analysis Unit. I’m looking forward to sharing and receiving tips and tricks for education!
