Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in the classroom and as a presenter.

Find joy.


Here’s the thing. Teaching can get heavy. Yes, even in kindergarten. There’s so much to cover and never enough time. What matters is we find moments of joy. ⁣

⁣Yesterday, while reading Today I Will Fly, with a focus on using a character’s face and body language to better understand traits, we got to this page.


⁣As I read the text, a giggle from the carpet. Then I did exactly what I was asking my students to do. As I studied Piggie’s face and body language, I too began to laugh. ⁣

⁣Then we all laughed, good belly laughs, together at her antics. It was only a minute or two out of our read aloud, but it was everything. ⁣

⁣Find those moments. Relish them.
