December 2020 - Ideas for Every Day

Welcome Leaders! How are you? While normally this time of year is tough for teachers, (see our post, " You’re NEVER Alone ," if you feel this) we all know 2020 is NOTHING like normal ; it’s like we’ve reached another level of “toughness” this year. Our school district got moved back to remote learning until AT LEAST through Christmas break. If this is you too - or perhaps you’ve been remote, or perhaps you're in-person or living in the thick of it through homeschool - whatever your situation is, I think we can all agree: this year’s been TOUGH!

But, if you’re content to stick around, we’re content to chat about it. (Although you might want to check out  “the things you might like to know”  section below.)

Fall 2020 - Ideas for the Home and Classroom

It seems ironic, sitting down to write a fall-themed post from a snow-covered setting. But that is the reality, leaders. Normally, I’d be frustrated that the snow knocked the leaves from the trees resulting in a shortened fall; however, this year, I’m not. Our 2020 fall has exceeded expectations, making the snow more tolerable. In addition, forest fires surround us, and the snow is aiding in slowing the burn. For these reasons, I find myself beyond grateful for the snow. To enrich your seasonal learning activities, I’m rounding up resources we use annually and ones we’ve created. You’ll find resources to support the following topics: General Science Literature Halloween Decorating Baking If you’re thinking that I missed Thanksgiving, I’ll tell you I did not. I’m featuring Thanksgiving in its very own post as it’s my favorite. General If you’re looking for a way to invite fall into your classroom and prefer a seasonal approach instead of a  holiday-centered approach, the
