Change the World...One Lesson at a Time

ATUE friends: I have entered the blogosphere. Cue the celebratory applause! (From myself. Woohoo!) I'm late to the blogging game, but I've loved getting my feet wet here at ATUE and loooooove reading the fabulous posts at my fellow collaborators' own blogs. I'm so excited to jump in myself!

On my first day ever as a teacher, my principal said something that stuck with me. He said that teaching is a huge responsibility, but with responsibility comes opportunity. That really resonates with me. As educators we have the opportunity to change the world....one day, one student, one lesson at a time. And so...One Lesson at a Time was born! 


I'm excited to have another little corner of the internet in which to share ideas about education and connect with inspiring teachers. Here are a few things I've blogged about so far:

My classroom management system:

Although I have several systems in place (including a Bucket Filling program, which you can read more about here on ATUE), my whole-class management is centered around "Team Turner Time". Click the picture to read my post detailing my system - it's a way to promote positive behavior and teamwork while working on elapsed time every day!


Foldable multiplication fun:

This year, I really took my cues from Pinterest - and that meant LOTS of foldable fun in the classroom! Click the picture to read about a quick and easy way to incorporate foldables into multiplication fact practice. 


End of the Year Class Compliments:

I think the end of the year is such an important time for students to reflect on their year and the relationships that they have developed with their classmates. This free activity has colorful slips for students to write compliments to each of their classmates - the best kind of end of the year gift!

Thanks for letting me "introduce" myself again - this time as a Blogger! :) Have a great week!
