cheer PLEF's Pep Talk! This time of the year without FOOTBALL!

Are you ready for some football?! As we bid adieu to this (somewhat controversial) season of football, wouldn't it be nice if the teaching profession was as high-profile as the profession of football? Before you get too deep on me, the resemblances are a bit uncanny. For example, teachers work better when we play as a team, we celebrate gains--no matter how small and when we "touch down" with that struggling student, we celebrate! Don't forget to celebrate the small gains because they will ultimately lead to victory. In the meantime, enjoy a break from reality with the short video below. Go team!

The Reason for the Season - Reflective Practice

Teaching is a high pressure, fast-paced vocation. Yet it is important to reflect throughout the mania that is our day. When I think about reflection, I examine Dr. King and the considerations he made during the post-Bloody Sunday attempt to march from Selma to Montgomery.

Health/PE: Use Padlet for Running Logs!

Many of you are familiar with Padlet as a source for students to post quick feedback. But have you ever thought about using this an exercise log? Even for personal use, this could be awesome! Check out the link below for a visual, then head over to Padlet to create one for yourself or you students! Let me know if you have questions about creating a Padlet. (It's super easy!)

Food for Thought

Mindset Dojo

There is a lot of buzz about mindset in education lately. Mindset by Carol Dweck, Math Mindsets by Jo Boaler and Stanford University's free YouCubed course, "How to Learn Math" for all levels are some of the more popular sources of information. Now, Class Dojo has jumped into the conversation. See one of the videos below all about the effect of the growth mindset (vs. the fixed mindset).

Classroom Hacks!

Ms. Doubtfire: The Horror Movie??

Much like life hacks, classroom hacks are new uses for "old stuff". Check out the familiar movie trailer below, "Ms. Doubtfire". Fun, lighthearted and cheeky, right? Well, the version below takes on an entirely different tone. There are tons of movie trailers out there flipping the tone of popular movies. Great conversation for mood and tone. Check them out....if you dare! ;) *warning: preview for language check before sharing with students*
