From tlnwilkinson on X: Stealing awesome ideas like this is the best part of social media. Best morning work ever!!

Would you try this in your classroom? 🤔


🎄Play-doh Trays🎄

Need an easy activity?? Throw together a play doh tray with beads, bells, and cut up beaded necklaces for the garland. Use pipecleaners to make stars.

Substitute items you could use: Pom poms, buttons, large sequins.


Good Morning AGP,

I like to refer to charts like this often to remind myself that some of the behaviors we see as teachers could be due to students’ trauma histories. Although a trauma history may not always be the cause, there is often no way of knowing, which is why our responses should always be sensitive to the possibility.

When a child with a trauma history is triggered by a real or perceived threat, the survival instincts of fight, flight, or freeze responses could be activated. During fight, flight, or freeze, the neocortex part of the brain that controls language, reasoning, planning, and reflection are not accessible.

Three actions to keep in mind if you think a student may be operating from the primitive part of the brain are: validate, mirror, and emphasize. Validation takes practice, as it is often our instinct to say “it’s ok”, or “no, you’re really good at this”. A child in fight, flight, or freeze needs validation for how they are feeling in the moment before they can regulate and access the part of the brain where reasoning occurs.

Later I’ll post a video about how to validate, mirror, and emphasize.

Fill your art area with bins of these amazing materials and watch the magic of process art right in front of your eyes.

You don't need to put them all out at once. Rotate 7-8 each week and watch the children's faces light up with curiosity and excitement.

Art time doesn't need to be about cutesy crafts or hundreds of dollars in ink (printed from your very own printer.)

Process art teaches children how to manipulate objects and materials in their own way, to create something from their imagination, an then tell you about it!

It teaches curiosity, communication, language, exploration, science, math, sensory, social skills... and so much more!


Our mini pumpkin ring post was one of our all time favorite pumpkin works! I just put out some washers that fit onto the stem *just* right for this ultimately satisfying fine motor work.

As we head into a new school year and volunteer our time on different committees, this is such a great reminder! 🤔

All too often, students see mistakes as a source of embarrassment, stress, or even humiliation. But mistakes are crucial pieces of information that force a cognitive reckoning:
