Let’s have a wine or a whine!
Happy Frickin’ Friday, teachers!
Ceri Sandford is the Australian teacher who created the Wine with Teacher™ podcast, magazine, and wellbeing club. She is the bright and colourful soul behind Instagram account @ourcreativeclassroom, which she uses to share a balanced perspective on the realities of teaching. All of her creative projects work together to shine a spotlight on this profession and shout "YOU MATTER!". The world needs more praise, celebration, and commendation for teachers who all work really bloody hard to make a difference. That deserves a raised wine glass!! Cheers!!
"Reading the Wine with Teacher magazine is like sitting down with supportive colleagues and talking about more than the curriculum. The opinion pieces make me think about other perspectives and challenge me to wonder what I would write about. The first issue was full of potential, truth and reality."
"Ceri you have outdone yourself again! Wine with Teacher Magazine is a truly inspiring and real magazine for anyone in education. The articles are honest and fun - I felt like I was sitting down with an old friend while reading it.”
“Reading Wine with Teacher is like sitting down with a mate after a long week having a wine and a yarn. It brings teachers from all around the world together to celebrate and talk about something they are passionate about.”
The Podcast Pack resource was fantastic to get my kids started in their learning about podcasts before learning how to create their own. It is such a detailed resource that is of an extremely high quality. I have already planned how to use it again in my classroom next year!
The Post-It Anchor Chart was such a great activity to help set up classroom and behaviour expectations. The students were engaged and it allowed me to learn about my new class of students, particularly those I haven't taught before. This will be an activity that I will reuse again and again. I would definitely recommend to others!
This Book Battle resource provided my students with fantastic support to analyse, summarise and compare different texts. The increase in enthusiasm towards daily reading is astounding. There's nothing like using our student's competitive spirit to encourage a love of literacy! Great job Ceri, thank you!
Thank you for this brilliant resource Ceri! I can't wait to use it with my gorgeous year 1 class, they're going to love it! And thank you for all the research and evidence in this document, my school is very evidence-based so it is a winner for us!
