What Have You Discovered? Share and Win This Kit

Discovery is a word full of such promise; whether I’ve discovered a treasure trove of free lessons and activities, an amazing new app for identifying plants and animals, or the missing purple sock behind the dryer, discoveries are almost always fun.

  1. How can I describe the amazing things I learn AND can pass on to my students? I LOVE reading the new information and the ideas that come from the mailbox and the comments and help from other teachers!

  2. I have an after school running club and I love how encouraging they are to each other. I always hear “Good job, nice running” even to the slowest of the group. How do can I not smile when the speedier ones come back to help the slower ones finish strong.

  3. I was cleaning out a junk drawer and found a small ceramic animal that my son made in kindergarten – he is now 26 years old….. sigh!

  4. I discovered an ear ring I had been missing for years in the basement. I think my cat found it upstairs and took it down in the basement to play with and I just happened to find it when it was out in the “open.”

  5. I have discovered that even though I teach 5th grade science…I’m not always “Smarter Than a Fifth Grader”! I knew this when a student asked if I even took a science class in college.????‍♀️????❤️
