The benefits of word search puzzles are vast. They improve things, such as cognitive function, help with memory, and increase vocabulary and spelling.

Word search puzzles are a great way to improve cognitive function. The puzzles require focus and concentration, and completing them can help keep the mind sharp. Completing word search puzzles also helps keep the memory strong.

Word search puzzles can also help increase vocabulary. The puzzles might require looking up words in a dictionary, which can help improve vocabulary skills.

School Shootings: What has happened to our safe schools?

What has happened to our safe schools? The term 'active shooter in school' is becoming all too familiar. It's heart breaking and gut wrenching. I simply can't imagine what these latest parents are going through, or what the parents before them went through, or even the ones before that. I don’t even want to ponder what the children went though. Children who died at the location where they were required to be. Children who died while laughing, learning, and just being a kid. It brings tears. Our children’s safe place is being stolen away, one shot at a time. Teachers are being robbed of a safe work environment, one shot at a time.A parent’s sense of security is being stripped away, one shot at a time.

It’s all unfathomable. Unimaginable. Unthinkable. To fix a problem though, we must face the problem. We shouldn't tiptoe around it, only talk about it for a fleeting moment, and then move on. It's a vicious pattern that keeps repeating itself. It has become a cycle of catastrophe. I don’t know the answer though. I do know this is big. It’s bigger than me. It's bigger than you. It’s bigger than any single person.

I might not know the answer, but I can assure you that it's something I think about. After all, I'm a teacher. I'm married to a teacher. I have children in school. My family is positioned in five different schools on any given day.

This is a national epidemic. The news reports state that we have had 18 shootings in schools within the first two months of 2018. EIGHTEEN. They stretch across the country, and no one is immune. It's becoming common place. Shootings in our schools are happening so often that we don’t question if it will happen again, we wonder when it will happen. It’s a brokenness that has become the breaking news on far too many occasions.

 Cafeterias were once seen as dining and gathering places, not as a vulnerable large crowd. Classroom doors once remained open and learning could be heard. Fire alarms once signaled smoke, but now they instill fear and make you question if it's legit. Calculating how to create chaos was the latest choice plan. With the simple sound of something our children had been trained to respond to. Kids didn't flee to safety. They walked right into the fire. Gunfire!

There was a time when teachers, students, and parents thought such tragedies could only happen in other communities. We are quickly realizing that no one is immune to this latest national terror. And it is national. We can't deny it. One look at a map of the 18 latest schools proves just that.

School Shootings

When I imagine school, I think of a bright and happy place, full of learning and fun. We as educators work hard to maintain that feeling of hope and success. It's what we do. It saddens me to think that children, even high school kids, are gradually being robbed of feeling that school is a safe place. Yes, we as educators are there to try and counteract that fear by making it a warm and inviting place to be. We don't dwell on the worry, but I can assure you, it's in the back of our minds. We plan, engage, and strive to make the classroom a place students want to come to each day. What we have to realize though, is the harm being done to the psyche of our school children and even to our teachers. Our once open doors are now key padded entries. You can't help but think about the tragedies each time you place your key in the lock. And now, after the latest. I can assure you that I, and many others, will think of these 17 deaths each time the fire alarm sounds in our schools.

Georgia 4th Grade Social Studies

Let's face it.... teaching Georgia 4th grade social studies means you have lots of material to cover. I'm sure it's not just Georgia though, as I know all states require lots of US History to be taught in upper elementary. After teaching for more than a decade, I kept thinking there had to be a better way to get the standards covered in the time allotted. Over the last three years, I have spent hours upon hours researching and writing passages that I thought would benefit students in third, fourth, and fifth grades. My social studies interactive notebooks have been a top 100 seller on the 3-5 product list for a few years on Teachers Pay Teachers. They are teacher tested and kid approved, and they have over a thousand positive comments showing just that. I would love for you to take the time to visit my store and read them. My 4th grade social studies passages and activities have been in my Teachers Pay Teachers store for the last couple of years, and I keep adding materials when I get new ideas. The Georgia social studies standards have recently been revised, and the changes will be implemented starting with the 2017-2018 school year. To make things easier for those that use my activities (or those thinking about using them), I have taken the Georgia 4th grade social studies standards and put them on a table that lists the standards along with the passages and activities I have created to go along with those standards. I think you will find it's an easy format to use. The download below is free, and when you opt in, the table presenting the information will be emailed to you. Enjoy!

Back to School Night Ideas

Have a successful back to school night! As summer is just getting under way, I am already thinking ahead to the next back to school night. Gathering ideas and making preparations in the summer is a great idea, because things can get a tad hectic for teachers once school begins. Back to school night is a time when you get to make an impression. Of course, it’s a time to share about the curriculum, the rules, and the procedures with the parents, but all eyes will be on you as you present the information. Being organized is a key factor in helping make the night a success.  In order to help you have a stress-free back to school night, I have put together a bundle of resources.

Back to School Night for Elementary Teachers

What does the pack include?

Back to School Powerpoint Presentation - This is an editable Powerpoint template. It means you can ADD images and text to the slides. You can use different font and insert pictures or clip art over the top, but you CAN NOT change the slides I have included. You can add more slides though if you want. The powerpoint includes 34 slides with predetermined titles. It also has 7 slides that have backgrounds and images, but they do not have titles. You will want to read the slide titles below to make sure they will work for you. For each slide in the presentation, there is a themed picture that goes with the topic of the page. There is also a matching solid colored background. Many of the images included are 'real' items, such as a photo of shoes for the dress code slide, kids eating lunch for the lunch/snack slide, etc. I liked the look of using the real photos rather than just using clip art.
