Then they started to build their words with the fruit pieces.
“The students pointed to the letters and sounded out each sound as they placed the cards down. I had been working with sound boxes so the students understood what I said when I told them that we were using the fruit letters like sound boxes to help sound out words. This center really helped them to sound out the sounds.”
“Later, I had the students match letters on our letter cards that our school system uses.”
Day 1: We are thankful for students and the awesome things they say. Here are some funny quotes from a daycare in Nebraska. I’m sure you’ve had some doozies too. Comment below to share your laughs with us!
Day 2: We are thankful for teachers and their contributions to our success as teachers, and of course, our sanity. Brittany personally has learned much from teachers with more experience, and cried much with teachers she relied on at work. When the two of us worked together, we had a huge support system in our prayer group at school. That group of ladies and a gentleman got us through some difficult times and vice versa. Pam is so thankful for all those cohorts who have been kind enough to share their great ideas with her as well as listening to her vent about administration and offering helpful thoughts about problem students that she’s had. What support systems are you thankful for amongst your coworkers?
Day 3: We are thankful for veterans and the freedom they give us to live our lives and teach children. This article is a twist on the traditional Veterans Day approach. Not sure if we agree completely, but it does shed light on the reality that we as civilians know nothing of what these men have been through on the warfront, or sacrifice in their daily lives for that matter. Whether or not you agree with our military, the fact that it is completely comprised of people who choose it means we don’t have a draft. We are not pulled from our families as part of a civic duty, but are permitted to sit securely stateside, blissfully unaware of what actually goes on. This applies to other service workers who don’t have a holiday as well: police, firemen, government agencies. If for no other reason, thank a service worker for the sacrifice they make so that you don’t have to.
To celebrate Veterans Day, we want to offer you this FREEBIE. If you want a lesson idea, check it out HERE. Enjoy:)
Here is one of Pam’s kiddos illustrating this fun free song:
so much easier and more enjoyable.
Day 6: We are thankful for our wonderful families who have shown us so much support throughout our time as teacherpreneurs. We have gone from eagerly watching our email inbox for our first sale to being blessed with multiple followers in our store and on social media. Our families have sat through tireless nights as we pinned, posted, crafted, and sculpted our business over the years.
