Hands-down the COOLEST 😎and most engaging project I’ve ever done with my Science classes. ————
We studied biomes of the Earth 🌏 as part of our curriculum. My Science partner teacher and I both teach classes at the same time all afternoon. We split our kids into 5 biome groups. Then they had to debate against a group from another class to win “money” to save their biome. We wrote debate speeches and had classmates as judges determining the winner for each debate. Every kid was interested and excited the WHOLE time! The added competition factor made students even more interested in learning and writing strong speeches! We even took them to the high school to use the lecture halls for a change of scenery. #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #scienceteacher #debate #loveoflearning #crosscurricular

“Look at this stuff isn’t it neat...” but for real look at all the cool STE🅰️M and literacy tools I was able to get with my @meemic foundation grant!!! Third graders learn about space in science so why aren’t we all making a 3D solar system model AND looking at one that moves AND using a constellation projector AND reading books about space! Now we can thanks to Meemic! #meemic #science #art #steam #crosscurricular #grant #handson #literacy

For me, music and movement are one and the same.
.
When I sing, play, or conduct, my body is engaged. I feel a crescendo eminate from my core, and percussiveness is impossible to feel from a stagnant position. Music moves me...literally!
.
In college, when studying about the Berimbao instrument, we also learned about the dance, Capoeira. The two are forbidden from being performed without the other. I found this fascinating!.
.
I got my own taste of this music-dance communication years later.  Until I was 6 months pregnant with my youngest daughter, I danced with a West African Dance group. The drummers play rhythms that indicate the movements for the dancers, and the dancers' movements communicate what the drummers play next.  The rhythms of the drums still stir something that is deeply engrained in my Soul, and I find it impossible to sit still when I hear them.
.
When teaching #music to children, incorporating movement is imperative. They don't separate the two, why should we? Have you ever seen a child dance with a spirit of inhibition? Neither have I! 😄 These little Souls are much more connected to that which is Divine, and we can learn a thing or two from them.
.
So today, I encourage you to step outside your own inhibitions about your dance abilities. Put on some music and move with your wee folk! Watch the joy on their face at seeing mama or papi cutting a rug.
.
Or if you are like me, do it in the middle of the aisle at the grocery store and have your nine-year-old look at you with that awesome combo of side eye and "secretly I REALLY love that you do this, Mom."
.
However, wherever you do it... just DANCE!

🎶"Blacks and bays, dapples and greys... all the pretty little horses."🎶
.
A line from one of my favorite folk songs, one that I sing to these gentle giants quite regularly.
.
A lot of our equine friends with whom we share a home have not had the easiest or kindest lives before we embraced them at our sanctuary.  I discovered early on though, that even the most shy or skittish horse would always be drawn near by gentle, soft singing and an outstretched hand. So it is one of the ways I am consistently able to show these sweet creatures Love.
.
I love the song, All the Pretty Little Horses, so much that I included it in the Early Childhood Guide.  Obviously it is close to my heart, but I have also discovered that children can be calmed by this soothing tune in much the same way as the lovely animals that it is about. I am still narrowing down the folk songs for the curriculum for the older grades, but I may just find a way to make sure this one gets the honor of a repeat. 😊

🎶"When you wake, you shall have all the pretty little horses."🎶

Indigenous Crest Art & Poems ~We read the story “Sharing Our World”, and the students picked an animal that best defined them. They personalized their crest by drawing the other half of the animal. Then they added a #cinquain poem about their animal! 🦉

I love that I have colleagues willing to go along with my crazy thought processes. Our amazing art teacher took sketch notes today during one of my History classes. We are covering the causes of the Civil War. For one of the causes I read an excerpt from Uncle Tom's Cabin. As I read, Mrs. Bailey drew. I think doodle, or sketch notes can be very effective as a way to remember or start a discussion. Art, for a lot of people, is easier to connect with. In school, you need to reach all levels of learning. 📰❤️🎨 #teacherlife #teacherfriends #crosscurricular #arts #history

Ah, the many hats of a classroom music teacher...
.
You must put on fabulous concerts with your students so that the parents believe you are actually doing something.
.
You have to provide some sort of physical documentation of your students' learning so that your administrator thinks you are...actually doing something.
.
And of course you must instill a Love and comprehension for #music in your students so that YOU think you are actually making a difference!
.
No big deal.
.
I may be a card-holding home educator these days, but my years in the traditional classroom are not a very distant memory.  So when I was asked to take the Foundations of Music curriculum and modify it for classroom use, I gladly accepted.
.
Perfect for your K/1 general music classroom, the Primer Level Classroom Teacher's Guide provides lessons to accompany the stories in the Pentatonica picture book (with exquisite artwork by artist @paloma.gorda, sold separately).
.
I got you, boo.  I provide the lessons plans, folk song sheet music, lesson aides, and documentation ideas. You prepare for the concerts with your kids and just enjoy making music.
.
And maybe get more than 4 hours of sleep. 😉

Teaching character traits or inner self & feelings? I love how our projects turned out. The kids created self portraits and wrote internal character traits that describe them around it. They also created an acrostic name poem with inner self characteristics. I love killin’ two birds with one stone with this ELA and health lesson! 😁💖📝 #crosscurricular #internal #charactertraits #iteachthird #iam #positivetraits #health #saskteacher #onemorethingcheckedoffthelist
While we’re on the topic of self portraits, here’s a flash back to one of my favorite arts integrated lessons: Immigrant self portraits. While my 5th graders were learning about Immigration and Ellis Island in class, in art they were drawing a realistic self portrait to look as if they got their photo taken right when they stepped off the boat at Ellis Island. We drew clothing that represented the times, and either The Statue of Liberty or a NYC Skyline in the background. I LOVE collaborating with classroom teachers to help reinforce topics and skills students are learning in their gen ed classes. I was very very lucky to have once worked at a Creative Arts school where the classroom teachers incorporated the arts in their lessons and I incorporated their standards into mine (shout out to @alkilbanecook @hanson_ville @amy_bostwick @amymc1106 and Susan Brandon). But it doesn’t have to just be the visual arts! Try adding music, dance, drama, anything to your lessons for extra engagement! I promise your kiddos will thank you for it when they actually retain the awesome info you teach them! Just ask @teachingandsofourth ! She’s one of my favorite accounts to follow because she teaches her content THROUGH music. It’s magical and amazing to witness! Do yourself a favor and follow Bethany! ✨✨ • • Classroom teachers, if you’re interested in learning more about how to integrate visual art into your room, you GOTTA join me on VEGAS this summer at @teachyourheartoutcon . @hipsterartteacher and I will be presenting on arts integration and easy art tips and tricks that anyone can do in their room!

E. Badu. I discovered her music while I was still only in my second decade of Life.  I really dug her vibe, and her songs were the soundtrack to my young adulthood.
.
I then proceeded to have a complicated relationship with her music for several years as I navigated the emotions attached to experiences that will be forever associated with some of her songs.  Now that I am older and wiser, I have rekindled my Love affair with the music of @erykahbadu and boy AM I in Love!
.
In my youth, it was about her overall vibe. Now, as I have been around the Sun a few more times, I have found a profound wisdom and depth to the poetry of her lyrics. I wasn't ready for them as a young woman. Now I have ears to hear.
.
Our relationship with music is akin to a beautiful marriage. Like our Love for our partner, the music itself doesn't change... but we certainly do. And through that growth and change, new and more beautiful facets are revealed giving way to a more profound appreciation and connection.
.
I see you Ms. Badu. And I appreciate you even more now that I have a bit more silver glitter in my hair and "got a little pot in my belly."
.
Take some time and rekindle your Love affair with some #music from your younger years. Imagine the nuggets of wisdom you might uncover!

Educators, and non educators friends, show some follow 📲love ♥️ in my new  professional account @thewokespanishteacher for cultural tidbits & ideas for the Spanish class, and my @teacherspayteachers account with the same name where I’ll be uploading resources to foster not only proficiency, but also intercultural competence on young learners of Spanish there 🔜 
There will be some freebies of course. I’ll keep you on the loop about them. You are more than welcome to share this post too. Gracias totales! ♥️ A shoutout to my friend @funforspanishteachers who have been encouraging me to do this for the longest time.

CONNOTATION was the name of the game in today’s lesson continuing from last week’s initial discussion about VILLAINS!! We are charting and categorizing their evildoing and having a blast!  Check out my IG story for the full lesson plan to see how I created an interactive digital element using Google slides and some Word Art!  Also, you’ll get to see some cute baby pics 🤣

Before spring break, my social studies class worked on a European Explorers Ship Building STEAM challenge- the challenge was to see which group could design and build a ship using only 2 sheets of aluminum foil and 10 plastic straws that would carry the most “supplies” (pennies) from Europe across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World. 🚢
.
We tested the final prototypes the day before spring break and the winning group’s ship held 265 pennies! I promised a prize for the winners, and today I delivered on that promise and surprised them with MERGE CUBES!
.
Swipe ⬅️ to see their winning prototype and pictures from the engineering process! .

This gal. Animal rights activist, brilliant mind, funny as all get out, and a book lover too? 
Temple, you are my hero. 
If you are not familiar with the wit and wisdom of Temple Grandin, you are missing out. She was a pioneer in making a cruel industry just a little bit kinder, and in the process became a voice for the countless people who navigate life on the autism spectrum.

I don't normally do the whole "awareness month" thing, but this one definitely speaks to my heart. I happen to know and Love quite a few kids (and adults) who are on the autism spectrum, not the least of whom is the beautiful little Soul who calls me Nina.  All of them are the most incredible humans who remind me constantly to remain in the moment and stay true to myself.  Not to mention some of the most amazing #musicians and #artists I have ever encountered.
.
So my contribution to #lightitupblue is to invite you to get to know a fellow human who navigates Life on the spectrum. Take some time to show them Love. Maybe not in the typical ways like a hug or kiss, but perhaps through the sharing of some beautiful #music. It just might change your Heart forever.

{{CROSS CURRICULAR OPPORTUNITY}} 👩🏼‍🏫🙌🏼🔬🍅💉 Where are my friends that teach science?! We discussed the pH scale in Honors Algebra 2 since the formula for calculating pH uses a base 10 logarithm. We discussed the four given items and which they thought was the most and least acidic! Then, students calculated the pH of each when given the concentration of Hydrogen ions in each substance! #crosscurricular #algebra #science #bio #chem #math #iteachmath #pH #teachergram #teachersofinstagram #instaclassroom

Check out some of our Year 8 Humanities & Arts projects. Students were asked to research and reproduce a scene from a historical event or natural disaster.  Very creative ideas! #studentart #crosscurricular
