TGIF! We made it! As we enter the weekend, remember this quote! Hard times always happen- however, we can make it through them ONE step at a time.
Until next time, Angie
Analogies are awesome! As we all know, an analogy is a comparison between two different objects, people, or ideas that share some common characteristics. Why teach them? Analogies are important because they help us make sense of the world around us. For example, if we wanted to explain how a car works, we could use an analogy of a bicycle. We could explain that the car has an engine like a bicycle has a pedal, and the car has a steering wheel like a bicycle has handlebars.
Analogies are also useful for making complex topics easier to understand. For example, if you were trying to explain the structure of the internet, you could use an analogy of a highway system. You could explain that the internet is made up of highways and side roads, and that data travels along these pathways like cars travel along a highway.
Analogies can also be used to create vivid images in our minds, which can help us remember information more easily. For example, if you wanted to remember the order of the planets in the solar system, you could create an analogy of a string of beads. You could imagine that each bead represents a planet, and the order of the beads is the order of the planets.
Overall, analogies are an important tool that can be used to explain complex topics, create vivid images, and help us remember information. They can be a great way to make learning fun and engaging, and can help us understand the world around us in a more meaningful way.
My students always love analogies and seeing the connection and relationship between various objects, people, and more. If needing an analogy resource for your classroom, I’ve got your covered:

Happy Friday! It’s the weekend, and that means it’s time to relax and unwind. But sometimes, it can be hard to find the motivation to do something productive. Here are a few tips to help you get motivated and make the most of your weekend.
First, start by setting goals. Decide what you want to accomplish and make a plan. Break down the tasks into smaller, manageable chunks and schedule them into your weekend. This will give you a sense of purpose and direction.
Second, set aside some time for self-care. It’s important to take care of yourself, both mentally and physically. Take a long bath, go get a cup of tea or coffee (☕️)read a book, go for a walk, or just spend some time doing something that relaxes you.
Third, find activities that make you happy. Whether it’s playing your favorite sport, crafting something, DIY project, cooking, or just watching your favorite movie (yes, I love me some Netflix), make sure to do something that brings you joy. 🥰
Finally, don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s okay if you don’t accomplish everything you set out to do. Just do your best, and don’t forget to have some fun!
I hope these tips help you find the motivation you need to make the most of your weekend. Have a great one!
Until next time,
How do we show our students we care?
As teachers, we all know it’s very important to show our students that we care about them. Why?

They need to feel that at least one person is in their court.
Here are a few ways that teachers can show their students that they care:
By taking small steps to show your students that you care, you can create an environment of trust and support that can help your students learn and grow.
