Today, I was able to experience something that I can’t even put into words. The Ron Clark Academy is a game-changer. Who I am as a teacher changed so much after attending Get Your Teach On (founded by some amazing RCA teachers) and today was the icing on the cake! There was even a PEACOCK hotel classroom! ❤️ So thankful for this opportunity! #rca #ronclarkacademy #slidecertified #setthestagetoengage #iteachk

How you start your day sets the tone for the entire day! We had an electric day @ronclarkacademy where we were able to have 600+ educators join us our education revolution! Thank you @1jamezqua for this incredible shot🤟🏽#bethewildcard #betherevolution #setthestagetoengage #rockyourschool

Damien Discovers was a hit with the kiddos! They loved seeing Damien try new things & show perseverance! If you’re looking for a great growth mindset book Damien Discovers is just that! If you haven’t gotten your copy yet head over to amazon and order now!

Our first Scientist of the Week was an exploding success! 😊 She demonstrated chemical reaction by dropping mentos in Diet Coke. The students loved it! learningisfun #setthestagetoengage #4thgrade #mystudentsrock #scientistoftheweek #findyourwhy #imateacher #reecespiecesrock

Anyone else go in today and wish your lesson had been for two days? #rockyourschool was so much fun! Their faces and reactions coming into the classroom was priceless! #setthestagetoengage #getyourteachon #melodysteachingadventures @getyourteachon

I get to co-teach with this amazing woman @treeshley every morning! One of my favorite times of day! Can’t wait for the kids to see what we have planned on Monday!!! 🤩😉

Pixar Place(Value) Activities:
•Toy Story - Steam Mania Towers (from @getyourteachon & @elementaryshenanigans ) kiddos had to build the tallest tower that would hold army men and aliens. •Nemo - 🎣 for numbers that they had to write in standard/expanded/word form •Incredibles - Fact Family Triangles; kiddos had to dig in the bucket for Incredibles figurines with a factor or product on the bottom. They had to build fact families with the numbers they pulled out. • Monster’s Inc. - Teacher called out a multi-digit number and they had to write the number in standard form, then build the number using base ten blocks they dug out of the basket. •

Have your kids experienced air vortex canons? They are a great learning tool, not to mention fascinating to watch (and chase, for my kids). I practiced with it today in preparation for next week’s lesson on Sailboat STEM (link to lesson in profile). ⛵️ .
I will use the vortex cannon to demonstrate how air can *push* and exert a force on the sail of a sailboat. Seeing the movement of air leads to great discussions on sail surface area, shape, and materials too!
.
Want to make your own vortex canon? It is so easy! Use a large cylindrical container like a plastic trash can, or in my case a flower pot. Cut a 3-6 inch circular hole in the center of the bottom. Then tape a thick plastic trash bag or shower curtain over the top— the opposite end of the hole you cut out. Shoot some fog from a fog machine into the cut out hole, point it away from you and pat the bag end to push the air out. If you don’t have a fog machine, you can still use the canon to puff air and knock things off of your desk or have students feel the force on their faces. 💨 🙂

Have you built sailboats with your students?

Yesterday was #rockyourschool so we decided to do Glow writing...so I wore my glow in the dark TOMS! My students loved them! Thank you @toms for fun comfortable shoes to teach in all day!

#flashlightfriday was a hit!🔦 My kids had a blast and left our classroom begging for us to do it again soon! I think it’s crucial to find exciting ways to foster a love for reading in your classroom and a blanket and a flashlight seems to do the trick for my firsties! .

Yesterday, I went to jail! #MathJail, that is! As a review for our test today on the topics Multi-Digit Whole Number #AdditionAndSubtraction and Multi-Step #WordProblems, the students participated in #CopsAndRobbers! The story went... I was a robber and had stolen money from 10 different places around town. #TheStudents were the #Cops and had to go to each location, read a word/story problem and figure out how much money I had stolen from each location. For each location the students got correct, they received a money chip. The goal was to collect all 10 chips. In the end, the students could exchange the chips for a gold chocolate coin. This #ClassRoomTransformation had many surprises and additions throughout and the students loved every bit! Especially when I went to "jail." After taking a #Mugshot picture forward, one student yelled out "Mrs. Triggs, you have to turn to the side and take the second mugshot picture!" 🤦🏽‍♀️ Looking forward to grading some A+ tests tonight! 👩🏾‍🏫🤓✔💯 #SetTheStageToEngage #TeachingWithMrsTriggs #4thGradeTeacher #MathTeacher #ScienceTeacher #TeachersFollowTeachers #TeachersOfInstagram

#rockyourschool day was out of this world! Today we transformed the room into outer space and built rockets, created scale models of the solar system, investigated the properties of slime, and learned about chemical reactions by shooting off the rockets. I'm so thankful for my teammate and friend @funinfifthgrade. This day was magic🚀🌠 #teacherlife #teachersofinstagram#teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig#weareteachers #iteachtoo #teachertribe#iteachfifth #teachingisaworkofheart#teachwhatyoulove #twinklUSA#twinklteacher #californiateachertribe #iteach5th #setthestagetoengage

Today we created sails for our boats. We have been studying wind and weather. We took everything we learned and created sails that would catch the wind and move down the tracks. Once we had a final product we raced our boats. #stem #teachersofinstagram #iteachsecond #setthestagetoengage

My first Classroom Transformation, Fraction Pizzeria was absolutely amazing! It was nothing big but I tell you the kiddos absolutely loved it!! I can’t wait to do my next transformation it’s a lot of work but it is definitely worth it. #classroomtransformation #iteach #iteachtoo #iteachfirst #teachersofinstagram #igteachers #teachersofig #teachersfollowteachers #teachersforteachers #makinglearningfun #fractions #pizzeria #dollartree #dollartreefinds #setthestagetoengage #tpt #tptfreebie

We ROCKED our school yesterday and today! Their reactions and level of engagement were my favorite parts! I even got a hug from a coworker thanking me for pumping HER up and excited to come to work! Thank you @getyourteachon @elementaryshenanigans and @_wadeking for inspiring me to take a leap of faith, stop playing it safe, and reminding me that learning CAN be fun! Check out my stories to see more fun we had! #setthestagetoengage
