Always a Teacher & Forever a Mom

Category: Lights, Camera, Action!

This series brings you videos that I have either found online or that I created myself.

The idea is to share teaching related videos that will help you in your classroom.

There is so much out there that can help out teaching. I just want to make it easier for you to find it!

Solving Simple Equations – Math Video

I have decided to make a series of tutorial videos to help my students with math concepts. The video I am sharing today, was created during the emergency distance learning period of the last school year 2019/2020.

Lights, Camera, Action! – Bullying – Take 2

Remember “Daisy Chain” from my previous “Lights, Camera, Action!” post? Well, today I bring you “Dandelion”. “Dandelion” is the predecessor to “Daisy Chain” and also deals with the subject of bullying. It is a very touching short movie that will make an incredible conversation starter about this topic. Unfortunately, the authors do not allow this video to be embedded in webpages, but the movie is Read More
