Sometimes, as a teacher, you have to say f*^% it to your planned program and look after your kids! Today was one of those days! So I scrapped what I had planned and we did this activity.... I wrote this meditation on the board and we closed our eyes and thought about our proudest moments, when we felt lifted up! Then we wrote, in whatever style suited, about those moments! The kids were requesting songs, singing and we had intermittent dance breaks thanks to @thefitnessmarshall and his amazingly upbeat YouTube clips! It was a day full of smiles and laughter but some quietly heavy hearts!
We need to be adaptable as teachers and realize that curriculum and data will always come a distant second to relationships and care! #wellbeing#baddays#distraction#findthehappyplace#dancing#writing#meditation#gratitude#gradefour#melbourneteachers #teachersofintagram #teachercommunity #aussieteachers
