Guys.... I’m not usually one to toot my own horn.... but 🎺 🎺. You HAVE to try this in your classroom. I racked my brain to come up with a pie recipe that didn’t require melting butter, a hand mixer, oven, or mess, that still incorporated math and fun. When plastic bags came to mind I couldn’t find anything that supported the idea of whipped cream in a bag but, in theory it should work.... IT. DOES. Every “piece” of that pie #punintended is made in a ziplock bag with ingredients that simply require measuring. Best part, it’s delicious. This is SURE to be a favorite and memorable activity with your class! 💛 be sure to tag me, I can’t wait to hear all about it!.

Link can be found in my story, or comment below for the link! Link includes the email opt-in for my March Freebie Bundle, that includes TWO no-prep Pi Day activities.

Have you heard of Perk Energy? It’s my latest obsession and it’s honestly ridiculous how much I look forward to my cup of Dutch Hot Cocoa every morning.

☕️ 8-10 grams of protein per cup
***Does NOT taste like protein.
☕️ Collagen
☕️ Antioxidants
☕️ I’m literally a nicer human.
Like on a pathetic level.
If you’re interested in trying @perkenergy they have a great promotion that runs until the 14th, with every purchase over 79$ they throw in a FREE frother. #gamechanger

How many days do you have left until winter break? Comment ⬇️

I love the idea that the best way we can remember September 11 and #neverforget is to remember the love, and unity that was felt September 12th, and to strive to live that way each day.
On September 12th we were one nation under God.
Seeking justice for all.
Love this beautiful depiction by @paigepayne_creations see her thoughts on September 12th below.
“ And on September 12th, we all came together. We were one. My family was living in Scotland when 9/11 happened. It was everywhere, all over the news. In school the day after, we had a long moment of silence in remembrance of those who were lost. We continued to have an annual moment of silence every year after that. It was incredible that even thousands and thousands of miles apart, we were mourning with those that mourned. We were one. At that time, we all displayed what we are capable of. Even in the face of incomprehensible tragedy, humans are capable of immense love. Capable of setting aside differences and coming together as one. As we remember and pay tribute to the thousands of lives the were lost that day, let us also strive to be more like how we were on September 12, 2001. Full of love, understanding, and compassion for each other. “

Tag your #teachertribe and every #firstyearteacher below for this important reminder:
As you set up your classroom for the new school year, and start divvying out materials… Do no forget to set aside 2-4 new student kits.
Just like @adifferentiatedclass (shown in picture) I made sets using Gallon ziplocks.
If you are in a developing community with new housing I recommend a minimum of 4 bags 🙀
What to include:
🍋If you adhere the plates to the desk, have a segment of what you use in the pack.
🍋Welcome Treat (same one you’ve given to each student at the open house/back to school...etc.
🍋Whatever else you’ve set aside for students that begin on the first day of school.
📣📣📣There will likely come a day when without warning you will be notified you have a new student, and the student will start THAT DAY. Save yourself and your poor new student the stress of frantically trying to get everything set up, by preparing NOW.
Veteran teachers what else do you include in your new student kits?? Share in the comments below⬇️⬇️⬇️

How satisfying/ beautiful 😻 is this #classroomorganization tip by @the_organized_classroom
Use paint swatches as a visual to help students sort supplies! Keep this is mind as you set up your classroom for the school year!
What’s a brilliant #teacherhack you’ve tried or seen done with paint swatches??? Comment below 👇
I’ll leave mine in the comments!
