Dressing and Educating: Days 134-138

Day 134: March 13, 2017

After a week of testing, it was nice to return to the usual schedule and routine in the classroom. In English we read through and interpreted the prologue to Romeo and Juliet and in Honors World History we spent time summarizing major events from the Russian Revolution.

I wore a black sweater and tights from Old Navy, a turquoise scarf and a skirt from The Limited.

IMG_6348

Day 135: March 14, 2017

We finally began reading Romeo and Juliet today. Students were assigned parts and we acted out the first two scenes of the play. One of my students has a peacock at home and brought in several feathers so that we could act out the sword fight of the opening scene. I’ve never done that before in my classes, but it was very fun and memorable. In Honors World History we compared the NEP of Lenin to Stalin’s Five Year Plans through readings and videos.

It was a frigid day so I wore Lula Roe leggings, a long sweater from Target, and my navy puffer vest from J.Crew.

IMG_6358

Day 136: March 15, 2017

Another wet and frigid Ohio day. In English we finished reading through the remainder of Act I from Romeo and Juliet. At this point every student has had an opportunity to read a part. In Honors World History we worked on a study guide for the Russian Revolution test next week.

I wore my Jessika Cowl Neck Poncho by RD Style from my Stitch Fix #10, a maroon layering top from Maurices, black slacks from The Limited and black boots.

IMG_6368.jpg

Day 137: March 16, 2017

Today was my husband’s birthday!

We woke up early and I made breakfast/tea in bed. He opened presents and we spent time cuddling as a family before school. It was another really cold day so it made it even harder to leave the warmth of my house this morning.

In English, we watched the first twenty-four minutes of the Romeo and Juliet movie on Netflix and then spent the remainder of the class comparing that to what we have read thus far in the play. In Honors World History, the students are working on an ongoing project about World War II so I gave them a class period with the computers to get some research and writing done.

I wore my Annaway Cable Knit Sweater by RD Style from my Stitch Fix #8, olive jeggings and ankle boots.

IMG_6388

Day 138: March 17, 2017

Saint Patrick’s Day and guess who forgot to wear green!?! This lady! It seems like every year I’m so caught up on planning my husband’s birthday on the 16th that Saint Patrick’s Day creeps up on me. I was nearly at school in the morning when I remembered the holiday, and of course I didn’t have any green on.

So despite my students complaining that I was not dressed appropriately for the holiday today I did get some productive work accomplished. In English, the students read for half the period from their own independent books. Following that they took a quiz over the first act of Romeo and Juliet. In Honors World History, we spent the period reviewing the Russian Revolution for the quiz next week.

Dressing and Educating: Days 129-133

This week my school gave our post-assessments. Each day we were on a modified testing schedule. The focus of the week for me was giving and grading post assessments so instruction was minimal. Here’s a look at my outfits this week:

Day 124: February 27, 2017

A new week brought new content to my English class. We are headed for Romeo and Juliet, but started with an introduction to analyzing poetry to start. We spent today defining terms and looking at examples of traditional and organic poetry. In Honors World History,we discussed the Paris Peace Conference and the end of World War I.

I wore a dress from Wet Seal, leggings from Lula Roe, and a black cardigan.

Day 125: February 28, 2017

The weather was beautiful today in Ohio. It’s been the strangest winter as it has only snowed a couple of times. In English we studied uses of the semicolon and I also handed out the study guide for next week’s post-assessment. In Honors World History we were supposed to go over a student example of a Document Based Question in preparation for the World War I quiz. There was a lockdown at my school all afternoon so that didn’t happen in my afternoon classes. I didn’t even have one class at all and the other afternoon class was cut short.

I wore a Classic T by Lula Roe, leggings and my-Dinah Open Front Cardigan by Staccato from Stitch Fix # 3.

img_6188

Day 126: March 1, 2016

There were terrible storms last night that spread into the morning hours. My drive to work involved bright flashes of lightning and downpours. In English we reviewed oxymorons and analyzed poetry in small groups. In Honors World History we played review BINGO to prepare for the World War I Quiz.

I wore my  Queensland Dolman Jersey Top by 41Hawthorn from Stitch Fix #2, black pants from The Limited, and rain boots by Sperry.

 

img_6200

Day 127: March 2, 2017

I only taught during the morning today. I took a half day so that I could join my husband at one of his basketball shows in northern Ohio. In English we read and analyzed The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe. In Honors World History the students took their World War I Quiz while a substitute teacher covered my class.

I wore navy slacks, a peasant top from Target and a navy vest from Old Navy.

 

Day 128: March 3, 2017

With post-assessments next week I spent the entire day prepping my students for those by providing study guides and test-prep questions. (I didn’t get a photo of myself in jeans and spirit-wear today.)

Day 120: February 21, 2017

After a long President’s Day weekend I entered my room with energy and excitement for the week ahead. In English, we read “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst. As we read, we paid particular attention to the author’s use of theme and symbol. This is one of my favorite short stories to teach as the lessons are deep and important.

In Honors World History my students prepared for debates later in the week with a class period devoted to online research and collaboration with debate partners.

I wore a black and white dress from Francesca’s, black OS leggings from Lula Roe and Toms.

 

img_6060

Day 121: February 22, 2017

It was a beautiful Wednesday with sunshine and sixty degree temperatures. I opened my windows during class and allowed the fresh air to circulate the room. It’s amazing what a bit of sunshine can motivate students to do. In English, my classes further analyzed “The Scarlet Ibis.” They reviewed the text with a partner and focused on new vocabulary as well.

In Honors World History we quickly discussed the use of poison gases in World War I before returning to debate research.

I wore a black sweater and khakis from Old Navy.

 

img_6080

Day 122: February 23, 2017

Just when I thought Ohio weather couldn’t get weirder it hit seventy-five degrees today. This time last year we were on Snow Day #4 in my district. For the second day in a row I had my windows cracked during class and we worked with the background noise of the great outdoors.

In English we reviewed the Scarlet Ibis today with a game of Kahoot! and a written activity. In Honors World History, my students began their group debates on which country was to blame for the start of World War I.

I wore OS leggings from Lula Roe, a navy tunic from The Limited, and red Toms from Stitch Fix.

 

img_6097

Day 123: February 24, 2017

The short week came to a close today. It was another beautiful day with sunshine and warm temperatures. My English students took an online assessment over The Scarlet Ibis short story. I wrote the quiz to model the format of the AIR test (Ohio’s standardized test.) In Honors World History, my students completed their debates. Some groups did a great job with the debates going above and beyond expectations.

Today I wore an olive knit top from Primark in England, jeans from Charlotte Russe, and Sperrys.
