I am NOT a teacher. I have several teachers in my immediate family and I have always thought them to be superhuman. Fast forward to Covid: now I know WITHOUT A DOUBT that I am not a teacher. Holy. Smokes. Let’s just take a minute and go back to the day I learned my soon-to-be-kindergartner was going to be doing school from home:
There. That’s the recap. Pretty much sums up my entire train of thought. I know my story isn’t unique as so many parents across the globe got the shoulder tap letting them know that, “Hey, better suit up cuz you’re goin’ in.”
The online search for help, ANY help, began. I called my sister, my Mother In Law, my cousin – S.O.S.!!! They were awesome and chipped with wisdom, guidance, and advice (I do think I could hear them all chuckling under their breath…). OK – now I need teaching materials. Hmmm. I was in search of something that was organized, easy-to-use, pretty much dummy-proof. My search led me to many options but I found one place that laid things out for us Non-Teacher, Suddenly Teachers OMG Now What types, here at Really Good Stuff. I found lesson plans, crafts, how-to, when-to, wall charts, budget bundles, classroom organization tips, privacy shields – you name, it, they have it. With SO MUCH STUFF – I was pleased and excited with how organized they had all of their merchandise. You can shop by grade, by activity, by purpose – they have things bundled together, separate if you need it – ALL IN ONE PLACE. Amen and THANKYOUVERYMUCH. If they sold patience by the bottle – I’d have bought it by the pallet, delivered every Monday. I already thought teachers were superheroes in plain clothes – now I am CERTAIN they’ve all found creative ways to hide their capes. Big shout out from this Proud Momma to all of you who help our little people learn, strive, and thrive. Hoping to see you all again SOON! (like, really, really soon….).
And if you’ve still got little pre-schoolers running around, here are some ways to make cleaning and organizing with preschoolers fun!
