How many “departamentos”(equivalent to states) are there in Colombia? Children in the US learn the 50 states with a fun song and Christina and I decided to produce this one. Tag a Colombian you think would enjoy this!!! 🇨🇴 #colombianteacher #maestros #bilingualteachers #duallanguageteacher #profesoresdeprimaria
Takeaways from today's discussion from a 🥼pediatric psychologist @dr.annlouise.lockhart a 🚑health care professional (Anthony Alibocas) and an 🚸educator @imaginedcoach
*👶Children are not color blind, they recognize differences at 6 months old AND at 3-4 years old they attribute good or bad characteristics based on what they have learned from parents.
*Saying or reading books with the message “We are all the same” is simply not true, although the idea is nice, but we all look different, speak different languages, have different customs, thoughts, come from different backgrounds,etc..
That’s why representation in books is extremely important. Our students and their diversity need to be represented and celebrated.
Even more useful info.....
White privilege doesn’t mean you haven’t experienced bad things in your life, it means that all those bad experiences were not based on your skin color.
How can I help:
*Its not enough to say I support the cause and stay silent (like posting a black square but not learning how you can help), you have to be anti-racist to make a positive change, take a stand and model that to your children.
*Being able to listen without being defensive
Today was the last day of school for students 😭and they had the opportunity to drop their library books 📚in the buckets placed by the curbside.
This was the first I've seen my students face to face and they were so shy 🤣 probably in shock it's been that long!
Take a look at the letter my student wrote me 🤣😍 so adorable! I was not expecting them to bring anything 💝🎁 #bilingualteachers #duallanguageteachers #kindertecahers #kinderbilingue #schoolclosed #lastdayofschool
This is the Spanish poem created by Jorja from @jorjasduallanguageclassroom
I used this one for the graduation video and the English one is here https://www.instagram.com/p/CAaKsHdnRHV/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

We just finished our virtual 👩💻 kindergarten graduation 👩🎓👨🎓and this is the poem we used for our award video.It was written by the best 1st year teacher I've ever met and my mentee this year 💖👩🏫 although it wasn't conventional at all, we put a lot of thought into making it special 😍 #kindergraduation #kinderteacher #teachersofig #lastweekofschool #elementaryteacher
🙂Today, to celebrate 🌍 day, I was able to show my #kindergarten students all of my plants and the green house we are building 👷♂️🚧👷♀️.
We played a guessing game with the different fruit trees I have (peach, guava, lemon,lime, blueberries, blackberries). We talked about the three R's (reduce, 📦reuse and ♻️recycle) and 🎼sang and danced 🕺
This is what teaching from home looks like 🤷🏽♀️ it doesn't replace being together, but we are making it work.

🎆What did you do with all those New Year's decorations? 🎆 I asked my friend @viryaneang if I could take them to my class. I plan to celebrate the new decade with fun props🎉🥳 when they come back this Wednesday, and after, they will be placed in the treasure chest 🏆#bilingualteachers #elementaryteacher #newyear #classroomdecor #kindergarten #bilingualkindergarten #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig
📚 I pre-ordered this book on amazon back in September because I wanted to have it in my future child's library👶 and also share with my kinder students 🧒👧
👶Now that it is becoming a reality and knowing I'm expecting a little 🎀 girl🎀 it makes it even more meaningful.
I want my child to grow up with strong, bold and brave role models like the women portrayed in this book 🙏thank you @naibereynoso @contodopress for bringing this book to reality. P.S. You are also a role model 💖

🤰I finally entered the second trimester often called the "honeymoon" stage but Phew! 😅 The first trimester was rough! Preparing for my 3rd trimester, I need tips #teachermoms! How do you do it? 🤷🏽♀️ #teachermom

Keeping Up with Mrs. Harris
🌱🦋🐛 We read this bilingual book last week and my students loved to learn about their migration and epic journey! We will be revisiting this book in May when we actually get monarchs in our classroom!
I loved that the author, @mistergsongs added tips to solve the problem of the monarch population declining at the end!🌱🦋🐛 #bilingualbooks #monarchbutterfly #teachersofinstagram #duallanguageteacher #bilingualteachers
What 📖books are you reading this month? 🌍
bilingualmarketplace.com Books that celebrate and educate about our Hispanic culture.
💖📕What I really like about this book (besides the fact that it is also available in Spanish 🥳) is the fact that students realize that even if they made one bad choice, it doesn't determine how their whole day💥would end. All throughout the day, they have the #powertochoose
My kinder students loved this book! Thank you @whatshoulddannydo for giving me the chance to review your book.
🥳You can get a copy of this book on amazon and preorder the Spanish version🥳.
TIP: If you already have this book, I randomly select a student to wear the cape that day to remind them of their power. You can do this everyday(or weekly) with a different student.

#Repost Thank you 💖 @bilingualdiaries 💖for starting this! 🙋🏽♀️ I admit it, this is me
too! It is hard to implement a new curriculum as you go. I am learning everyday, baby steps! If you are on the same ⛴, use the #hmhideas
TIP FOR KINDER SLA:
Make sure you use the alfaamigos song to introduce the letters under "Tarjetas de aprendizaje" on the on the hmh website. The 2min (sometimes less) songs are great! I wished they also had a video.

Struggling with this new curriculum?! Yeah, so is EVERY teacher I know (myself included)😩. It doesn’t matter if you teach 1st grade or you’re a monolingual teacher, we ALL feel it.
Soooo let’s struggle through it together! If you think of a way to organize materials, your time or these centers, let’s share it using the #hmhideas hashtag!
Here’s what I have so far: I have 2 classes, so I’ve color coded each class and put all my Spanish materials on one side and all my English on the other. This has allowed me to switch languages in the middle of the week with greater ease and leave room in their desks for their journals! Baby steps y’all, we’ll get there.🙏🏽💙

Fall starts in 14 days but who is counting.... Here is a booklist to get you started.

Went to the hospital today to visit my little nephew after school. The whole hospital is filled with quotes like this 🥰 train tracks, entertainment cents for the kids and more. It is not fun to see your little nephew here 😞but this hospital makes it a bit better by how it is designed so kids forget for at least a moment that they are sick.
I noticed this was a recurring question... If you are looking for back to school books in Spanish (less than $15) here is a list for you: https://www.bilingualmarketplace.com/blogs/news/boybooksinspanish
bilingualmarketplace.com A great Spanish book list for the beginning of the school year!
Got the cutest gift🥰🐕 from a friend today! I don't know why buying a door stoppers is always on my list and I always forget 🤦♀️ #doorstopper #classroomdecor
New school book study. Have you read this book? I will be starting it soon. #bookstudy #teachersofig #differentiatedinstruction
Porch Party aka Meet the Teacher success! I met my new students their parents and answered a lot of questions about kinder 💖😊 #kinderbilingue #bilingualmaestrosfollowup #teachertired😴💤
I can't stop thinking about the families that lost a loved one this weekend 😔 How do we reassure our kids that this will not happen to them, if it keeps getting harder to feel safe?
Repost from @missybilingual .... Imagine going to Walmart to do your weekend shopping & a mass shooting breaks out leaving 20 people dead and multiple injured. THIS IS NOT OK. Twenty people dead , they were mothers , fathers , hijas, hijos, sisters , brothers , amigos to someone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have to learn from history . We have to do more than just pray. We have to use our voice .
😊I'm so excited to be a mentor this year! I had a mentor training yesterday and met my mentee too! Knowing we will be able to visit classrooms together, meet weekly and also plan together is a great start for this new school year! #mentorteacher #bilingualmaestros #teachersofig #duallanguageteacher

📖 Who has read Perfectly You by @marianaatencio?💖 This book talks about surpassing all those stereotypes that other people, (including us) set for ourselves. I've also learned more about the past and current situation in 🇻🇪Venezuela🇻🇪. Mariana is so inspiring! Oh and it is also available in Spanish! (Perfectamente tú).
📖🤓 What books are you reading/listening to lately? I'd love to add them to my list

💖What inspired me to be a teacher? Well I think it was a mix of different experiences. A little background, I am from Bogotá, 🇨🇴Colombia. I came to the 🇺🇸US when I was 15 years old!
I was in ESL classes in high school and it was really hard to adapt to a new culture, new language, new education system,etc.
I had no idea what I wanted to do after I graduated, but I knew I wanted to go to college 🎓
Then I took a class my junior year called ETI (Elementary Teacher Internship) where I would go to a kinder bilingual class twice per week, create lessons, help the teacher and I just fell in love! 🥰
Now that I look back 🤔 my mom said I always liked to play teacher. I would line up all the dolls, give them grades and have pretend parent conferences (proof on the last picture 🤣) thank you @missybilingual
for starting this, can't wait to meet more teachers.
A few months ago I subscribed to a bilingual teacher's youtube channel @thespanglishmaestra. I loved watching the perspective of a bilingual teacher in another state, all the challenges we share, all the things that are different. She was also very funny😊. She had a giveaway and I won, she not only sent me all of this, I also feel like a gained a new friend 💖 Thank you Valeria!
My name is Juliana Suarez. I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I enrolled in a class called "Elementary Teaching Internship" my junior year in high school.
I observed an amazing bilingual kindergarten classroom (and teacher) and 4 years later, I finally had my own kinder classroom. I will begin my seventh year as a bilingual teacher for gifted and talented students this upcoming fall.
I worked as a bilingual assistant for four years while attending UTD to become a bilingual GT (Gifted and Talented) teacher. As a bilingual assistant, I started noticing that all of the teachers were creating their own materials and were translating indefinitely throughout the year, sometimes there was a limited amount of resources the teachers could use in Spanish which gave me an idea of creating my own.
My goal was to create materials that were aligned to the curriculum and were engaging for my students, and that is how Kinder Bilingue started. I hope my resources save you time so you can focus on your teaching rather than translating and spending after school hours creating activities. Knowing that you are using something I created for my class gives me the best feeling of appreciation. I create materials for my gifted students which come to me at various ability levels and I have taught all grade levels but my primary focus in K-2nd grade.
I hope that you find new activities you want to try with your students and that can also save you a lot of time.
