Positive Quotes for Students Motivation Growth Mindset

Using positive quotes for student motivation using growth mindset has always been a must in my classroom. We as teachers know a positive quote for a student, a high five, a fun note, or good phone call home can go a long way for a child in our classroom. As a teacher I am always looking for ways to try to boost a student’s self esteem. I have created lots of resources over the years to give out during different seasons that I hope you will love. Below is a list of some of my favorite resources that I have found that work great with my upper elementary kiddos. These resources can be used for middle school kids too for the same results!

1.Succulent and Cactus Themed Growth Mindset posters

I use these bright colored posters to display in the classroom throughout the school year. They have lots of messages about trying your best and getting back up when you fall down. You can buy inexpensive IKEA frames to display them on a wall in the classroom.  Easily switch them out throughout the school year. These posters look great on bulletin boards, classroom walls, and hallways.

6.Test Anxiety & Positive School Motivation Quotes Coloring Pages

The springtime is usually when most schools begin their statewide testing. During this time test anxiety is on the rise for many kids in all subjects and grades.

I like to use these coloring pages as a way for students to relax some while reading the message on each of the pages.

Studies show that anywhere from 10-40 % of students in the United States can suffer from some form test anxiety. Of that statistic, anywhere from 16-20% are considered to have high test anxiety. This is one of the biggest scholastic impairments suffered by children and students. With standardized testing being prevalent in most states, test anxiety in students and children seem to increase every year.

As a person having anxiety myself, I understand the feeling of being anxious and not being able to escape the feelings that I am experiencing. As an adult, I have worked very hard to understand anxiety better and through therapy, medication, self-talk, and a variety of other strategies on most days am able to keep my anxiety at bay. Students, however, may not understand the feelings that they are having. Test anxiety in students and children may not be something that is something that a student has experienced before. It is our responsibility as parents, adults, and educators to help a student to work through the feelings of test anxiety.

How-To Teach Figurative Language using the book Dalton’s Dress-Up Dilemma

Hey there! This post contains affiliate links, which means that I receive a small commission if you choose to buy something at  ABSOLUTELY NO EXTRA COST TO YOU the buyer.  For more information, please check out my Affiliate Disclaimer Page to learn more. 

In this post, I will show you how to teach Figurative Language using the book Dalton’s Dress-Up Dilemma. I absolutely love teaching kids about Figurative Language because they enjoy it too. When teaching a variety of styles, I always found it hard to find a book that had all the components that I needed to teach without using poetry. I wrote my own book Dalton’s Dress-Up Dilemma and combined oxymorons, metaphors, alliteration, idioms, imagery, hyperboles, personification, similes and onomatopoeias together in one text! Kids love reading comic books so this book is written as a comic book/graphic novel style. There are some lessons that go great with this book and are explained a little better below.


In the book, Dalton’s Dress-Up Dilemma there are some features that may not pop out at you unless you are looking for them. For example, each character in the story represents a different style of figurative language. I will break them down for you in this list:

Oxymorons- The mother

Alliteration- The Solider

Metaphor- The Police Officer

Idiom- The Cowboy

Imagery- The Fireman

Hyperbole- The Dinosaur

Personification-  The Pirate

Simile- The Elephant

Onomatopoeia- Scattered throughout the text in BOLDED WORDS.

As each character comes out to speak with the mother in the book, the style of figurative language changes. As the little boy in the book cleans up the mess in his room, he again uses the same style of figurative language so that students can see and hear another example. This book is wonderful to use under a document camera or read to students who are sitting on the floor or at desks. This book makes a perfect read-aloud for any age elementary student.

You will know when a different figurative language style is used because the style of thought bubble changes and the text is italicized as shown below.

Datlon's Dress-Up Dilemma Book Example


I created a FREE LESSON and an EXTENSION LESSON to go with this book to teach figurative language.

  • The FREE LESSON includes posters and a matching assessment activity that students can use to show their knowledge on Figurative Language.
Dalton's Dress-Up Dilemma Free Product

FREE!!!! Posters & Matching Activity

  • The EXTENSION LESSON includes the colored versions of the posters, a flip-book, a puzzle activity, and a matching assessment activity.
Figurative Language Lessons for Dalton's Dress-Up Dilemma

Lessons Include- Posters, Flip-Book, Matching Activity, & Assessment


EXTENSION LESSON FLIPBOOK- As shown in the picture below the flipbook can be used while the teacher is reading Dalton’s Dress-Up Dilemma to students. This flipbook asks for the student to write an example of the figurative language style from the text and to write its meaning. THE FLIP BOOK ALSO FOLLOWS THE ORDER OF THE FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE THAT IS USED IN THE BOOK.

Activities inside of the lesson

EXTENSION LESSON PUZZLE ACTIVITY- (Also shown in the above picture). This activity is great for students to continue using their knowledge of figurative language in centers, small groups, partner activity or to use independently. The teacher will have to cut the puzzle pieces and the student will assemble.

EXTENSION LESSON POSTERS- Shown below are a few examples of the posters that can be hung around the classroom. These posters are 8 ½” X 11” and provide the word, definition, and several examples. There are 9 colored posters inside the lesson.

I hope that your class has as much fun reading this book as I had fun writing it! I would love to hear your comments and feedback in the comments section below!

Fall Teacher Style Outfits

Hey there! This post contains affiliate links, which means that I receive a small commission if you choose to buy something at  ABSOLUTELY NO EXTRA COST TO YOU the buyer. I only recommend things on this page that I absolutely love, have purchased, or plan on purchasing. For more information, please check out my Affiliate Disclaimer Page to learn more.

Fall Teacher Style Outfits

I have been loving posting my teacher style on Instagram lately. It is a way for me to keep track of my fall outfits of 2019 and I definitely love seeing others post about what they are wearing. I know that I probably buy too many clothes.  I can’t help it though, I really love dressing cute, it seriously puts me in a better mood. When it comes to shopping, I actually am a frugal shopper. I only buy things that:

A.) look great on me (or that I feel great in)

B.) can be worn in a few different ways or match some things that I already own.

and C.) are comfortable (the older I get, the more that this is ranking higher, but it still has to fit me well.)

My rule to myself is that if I see something that I love if I am still thinking about it 24 hours later, that means I love it and I generally purchase it.

Some of my favorite Fall Teacher Style for Instagram Outfits are below:

Moto Leggings

These Moto Leggings are my absolute favorite, I really love the fun detailing on the legs and the side zipper on the ankle. The best part about these pants is that they have a stretch elastic waist (like most leggings) and that they look like real pants so you can wear them to teach or to work in them. The denim jacket in the picture on the left is my new favorite. The hood is removable, so you can wear a variety of ways. I have put the links below for most of the outfits if you would like to shop these looks. The necklace, chambray shirt, and grey crew neck sweater have been in my closet for a while. Also, the slip-on sneakers in leopard are from Walmart, but they only sell the leopard print in the stores. The link below for another style that I EQUALLY LOVE!  I have put the links below for pieces that I found on Amazon that have a similar look and style.

This look is also comfy, which of course I gravitate towards! This jumpsuit is cute for weekends, a baby or couples showers, brunch with friends, or a day of running errands. While I usually gravitate towards blue or grey hues, this jumpsuit is the perfect color for the fall and winter months. Living in Texas, this piece gets a lot of use and can be worn until the end of October with a lightweight layer.2 Ways to Wear an Amazon Jumpsuit

The necklace that is shown in the picture on the left is originally from Francescas and is no longer available for sale. This outfit would also look adorable with a layering tassel necklace which I have also linked below.

High Waisted Floral Skirts

I love this floral printed skirt because I got to dabble with some print mixing which I love! I don’t wear skirts often because I am more comfortable wearing pants, but this style is fun for trying something new. This skirt fit me best in a bigger size because of how high the waist is.

Yes Please to High-Waisted Jeans, Pants, & Skirts for the Fall

Hey there! This post contains affiliate links, please check out my Affiliate Disclaimer Page to learn more. 

High Waisted Jeans and other bottoms have been my favorite lately! So when I was growing up, I used to go shopping with my mom. I remember vividly her commenting on current styles saying, “I used to wear that style when I was your age, fashion always circles back.” Since I was an adolescent with an attitude, I also remember thinking that there was no way that she used to wear this style and probably rolled my eyes at the time.

My go-to outfit when I got in high school was high-waisted jeans or shorts (the Bongo brand was my fav) and a cropped shirt. Then the high-waisted fashion went from being cool to being called “mom-jeans”, which even if you were a mom, was a no-no to wear. Now the high-waisted fashion is making a come-back and I couldn’t be more thrilled. It turns out my mom was right, and fashion totally circles back (sorry about the tude at the time Mom!)

I love this style because I feel like it sucks me in a little at the waist and that I have a more flattering silhouette. Not going to lie, my online cart has been full of the style this fall and I am going to share a few of my favorites and how to wear this trend for the fall and into the winter months! To help with the fit of the bottoms in this post, I am in between a size 4 & 6 or between a small and medium but I often fluctuate.

High Waisted Colored Jeans

These jeans are awesome because they can easily be worn to work or worn very casually. Whether you like the color mustard or not is irrelevant, you can totally rock your favorite color. In the fall and winter months colored denim in vibrant jewel tones are the best! For these particular jeans, I found the size 6 to fit me best.

High Waisted Boyfriend jeans

I really love boyfriend jeans because they look great with any shoe. Anytime that I get to wear distressed denim, I also am happy. These jeans are easy to wear during the day for casual and you can go meet up with friends for dinner wearing them too! These jeans are super stretchy and fit me perfectly in size 4.

High Waisted Elastic Pants

I feel like I am wearing pajama pants with these! To me, this is an ideal work option because you look cute and comfy, which is a win-win! These pants come in over 10 different colors and a few patterns, which is really fun. I ordered these in a small and was they fit great! *Please note: The grey blazer and chambray shirt listed below are not the exact one that I am wearing. These two pieces, I have had for a few years.

High Waisted Floral Skirts

I love this floral printed skirt because I got to dabble with some print mixing which I love! I don’t wear skirts often because I am more comfortable wearing pants, but this style is fun for trying something new. This skirt fit me best in a medium because of how high the waist is.

I hope you will be loving this trend as much as I am for the fall and winter months! I would love to hear if you have tried any high waisted fall trends that are not mentioned above!

Activities to Help Teach Context Clues

Understanding context clues is an important part of reading comprehension. Learning how to decipher meanings of words through definitions, synonyms, antonyms, examples, and inferences is one of the most reading strategies we can teach. Using context clues is a powerful way to teach vocabulary without using rote memorization. Here are some fun, engaging activities to help teach context clues.

Sing a song!

I love using music with my students. Flocabulary has a catchy tune that teaches students how to use context clues with synonyms, antonyms, explanations and examples. There are other songs on the site that your students will love and also aid in reading comprehension. Play this quick tune in your classroom and chances are, they’ll be humming and singing as they practice in class!

Use nonsense words.

Write some sentences with made-up words and have your students use context clues to figure out the meanings. For example, “His mother told him to brush his teeth with a tallywapper before bed.” Your students could infer that a tallywapper is something someone would use to brush their teeth or a toothbrush. You may also have your students make up their own silly words and have other students figure out the meanings. This activity can induce giggles, but it also helps your students learn more about using this strategy!

Use task cards.

Context clues 3rd & 4th grade cover Context Clues for 5th & 6th grade cover

Use pre-made vocabulary task cards to help your readers comprehend text. These are perfect to help with general context clues lessons or state test prep. There are even vocabulary words from previous state tests! I love using task cards to help students recognize different types of context clues and how to highlight and recognize clues in the text to help them figure out word meaning. If your students need even more of a challenge, try these context clue task cards, that are perfect for centers or full-class instruction. This pack also includes a quiz to see if your students truly understand the concept.

Vocabulary Building Cover

Make a vocabulary dictionary.

Have your students create a dictionary of vocabulary words either on paper or using digital tools such as Google Slides. Instead of just writing the word and definition, they’ll write sentences using different types of context clues. For example, they may write the word “admire” and the definition “regard with respect”. Have a student then write a synonym or antonym of the definition to help to increase vocabulary.

Using context clues to figure out the meaning of words is an important skill for all students, particularly elementary and middle school students looking to improve reading comprehension. Using a dictionary to find the meaning of words is not always feasible, especially when reading novels or passages on tests. Context clues provide students with the ability to keep reading and improve reading comprehension. Use these activities to help teach context clues in your classroom!


Back to School Budgeting Activities using Project Based Learning

It’s time to head back to school, and one of the first things I like to get started with upper elementary students is project-based learning. PBL is not just handing the kids an activity to do in a group; it’s so much more. Project-based learning is really about solving a problem using critical thinking and creativity. I like to use real-world problems that incorporate standards in multiple content areas. One of my favorites is helping students learn how to budget using math skills and incorporating writing. Here are some back to school budgeting activities using project-based learning that you’ll love to try in your classroom!


Give your students something they have to plan for back to school. Consider a class trip, a makeover for the classroom, school supplies, or a new club. No matter what the task, the students will need to budget for supplies and possibly services. You may want to consider giving different groups different categories. For example, one group may plan a field trip to the zoo while another group may create a classroom book club. After introducing their task, start by giving your students a digital check (with their allotted budget) and planning pages included in this project-based learning activity


Using online resources, teach your students how to comparison shop for items and services needed to solve their budgetary problems. Sharing shopping resources and skills needed for comparing prices (figuring sale prices with percentages off, for example) are some of the math skills that are valuable in this challenging yet fun project. When you have a digital price comparison guide and logs to share with your students, they’ll be able to organize and find the best deals for their budget!


Whether your students are planning a field trip or a class party that they need to budget for, it’s really important for them to reflect on the process with words. Share reflection sheets for your students to fill out during their planning and shopping process.


One of the biggest components of PBL is sharing with an audience. Invite parents, other teachers, and administrators to see your students’ final projects. The sense of pride your students will feel when they have the stage and share their voice is a perfect way to start back to school!
Budgeting and money may be a new concept for many of your upper elementary learners. Add these titles to your classroom library to incorporate into back to school budgeting activities using project-based learning.
