Have you tried Augmented Reality apps before? Well, today, my daughter and I discovered how fun AR can be! H colored this page full of jack o’ lanterns 🎃 then we watched the same pumpkins come to life with the use of our newly found app! My daughter was absolutely stoked and went on to color a penguin 🐧 that dances and skates by itself! Interested to know what app we used?

We must Maslow before we Bloom. I want to shout this from the rooftops, friend. Are you with me? Hear me out.
We see this every day in our schools. The pressure to memorize facts, the pressure to reach certain reading levels, the pressure for students to track their data and improve, the pressure to ace that spelling test, the pressure to grasp addition with regrouping, the pressure to write a perfectly written paragraph. The list goes on!
But guess what, why oh WHY is it that the amount of pressure we put on students to meet their academic goals is not surpassed by our focus on their social emotional needs. Their need to be fed, feel safe, have a sense of belonging, feel confident, and know themselves as learners and little human beings is so much more important. This has to come first.
We can continue to push ourselves to create the perfect lesson that appeals to students, differentiates to meet all the needs, and then test the kids for proficiency but if we don't take care of them and their needs we can't expect these sweet little ones to academically perform like we want them to.
