10 Confessions of a February Teacher Mom

It is time for another #Confession post. I have gotten multiple messages lately with teachers feeling overwhelmed and thinking that based on my social media I happen to have it together. 

Newsflash I don't have it together. 

I feel like I need to insert a dose or reality to hopefully help you realize that you are not alone. This time of year is HARD. It is cold. It is dreary. It is burnout month. Students are over school and teachers are having a hard time seeing the light at the end of the school year tunnel. While I am right there with you, my biggest advice is to mix it up. (Sr. Wooly Week was a great change of pace for us last week). Take care of yourself and don't take school work home. Do you want to feel a little better about yourself? Here are 10 confessions of a February Teacher Mom.

Mania musical de mujeres - March Music Madness in Spanish class

It is about that time of year that everything is all brackets. This is my fourth year doing an all class March music bracket competition. I know there are MANY variations by many different teachers who are desperate to spice up a dreary time of year.

Exploratory Spanish - What to do with 1 Quarter

For the last three years I have had the chance to teach Exploratory Spanish to 7th and 8th grade. It is a great opportunity to reach ALL junior high students with Spanish, including those who think they have no desire to take Spanish in the future, and students with 504 plans and IEPs who are pulled out for many general education classes. It is my personal goal to hook every student by showing them Spanish is fun and to make them feel successful. My first year I posted 6 Week Plans for Exploratory Spanish, while we were on trimesters. While I still use some of what I did then, after having eight sections of absolute beginner Spanish, I have refined my exploratory plans even more.

Are you stuck in a winter rut? It has been below freezing for a full month, so my students and I are going stir crazy. It is time to mix it up in the classroom to try and bring the fun back. Here are some fun ways to bring in culture and fun this February.
