5 Ways to Bring Silliness into Your Classroom

5 Ways to Bring Silliness into Your Classroom Let’s face it; kids are silly, and they know how to have fun! In order to find some joy in the day-to-day grind, bring some silliness into your classroom. It will help your students see you as a person with whom they can relate. | TeacherPop

Sometimes I would come home from a long day at school and gleefully realize that I barely spoke to another adult all day. Let’s face it: kids are silly, and they know how to have fun! In order to find some joy in the day-to-day grind, bring some silliness into your classroom. It will help your students see you as a person with whom they can relate. Below are five ways to bring silliness into your classroom.

Teach Eat Repeat Recipe: Grilled Tuna Steak

New Recipe: Grilled Tuna Steak

We’re honoring these hot, hot August days with an easy, and more importantly, quick protein option for dinner. The beauty of tuna is that it’s a bit fatty, so it’s full of flavor on its own. Additionally, it actually tastes best when it’s barely cooked. That means when you’re in a rush to get a “hot” dinner on the table, tuna might be a good go-to. We buy a huge tuna steak, marinate it, grill it up and then eat it for a few days. It’s super tasty, but not flavorful enough that you can’t eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We’ve eaten it on the side of eggs and avocado for breakfast, on a salad for lunch, and with grilled veggies for dinner. So quick and so easy!

Since I tend to naturally think in anatomical analogies—as a former collegiate athlete and daughter of a beloved RN—I wonder how we might think about our bodies in teacher-specific terms with constant opportunity for nourishment.
