Sunday's Teacher Feature: Welcome Back in October!

It's Sunday! SUNday! SUNDAY! That means it's time for this week's edition of Teacher Feature! I have to be 100%  honest and tell you that this week I spent a whole lot of time finding tricks of the trade for getting our students adjusted to coming back to school after spending the first month doing remote learning. We only have about fifty percent of our students returning, but we still needed to take time to get them acclimated to being back in the classroom after seven months. Wow! No wonder I'm enjoying Netflix time and my green tea this Sunday morning:)

Our first feature is from @sanfordfitkids based out of South Dakota. I actually came across this amazing emotional control poster during the summer months and I knew it would come in handy. One thing we keep reminding our teachers about is that our students are going to need to adjust to manners, routines, and how to interact with their peers. I love how simplistic @sanfordfitkids makes this tool and I feel it can be easily implemented on any grade level. Here is the link to see more impactful posts:

Our next mountain to climb while bringing students back into the building is sanitation and cleanliness. The teachers in the older grades feel their students will have no problem telling them that it is time to wash their hands, but the teachers in the younger grades are feeling just the opposite. I came across these perfect classroom sanitation labels from @hozholearning. Ms. Robyn bought red and green plastic bins that will coordinate with the labels so her students will know which items are clean and which still need to be clean. So simple, yet so perfect! Here is the link for @hozholearning so you can give her a follow:

Drumroll please for our final Teacher Feature of the week..and that is @alwayssunnyin4th. Miss S has so many brilliant ideas for teaching the meat of reading. In this picture, you are seeing her anchor chart for teaching the main events of the story. I love how relatable the language is that she chose to use so students can gain a clear understanding of what they are looking for. On top of that, Miss S has plenty of resources that she created to go along with this lesson. AMAZING! When you visit her link, this post is found saved in her stories under "Workshops":

As always, we hope you found these ideas helpful and easy to implement. Our goal here at Lesson Plan Toolbox is to make the lives of teachers just a bit easier. If there is something in particular that you are looking for, please feel free to reach out to us on Instagram (@lessonplantoolbox) so we can do the searching for you. We hope you are enjoying a Sunday Funday! Be sure to come back next week for three more AMAZING Teacher Features. Cheers:)
