After only 1 week of term I feel like I’ve been hit by a freight train. Tonight’s post will be brief because I honestly don’t think my brain is functioning properly.
It’s been one of those weeks.
Linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for Five for Friday:
I got mail! Brand new write and wipe pockets. I was so VERY excited on Monday night.
This week we’ve been exploring shapes. The Grade 1s loved using the geoboards to make different quadrilaterals.
We read the Very Hungry Caterpillar on Thursday. My Preps retold the story by sequencing the food the caterpillar ate using ordinal numbers. We turned them into caterpillars and hats and made the Grade 1s very jealous. Must come up with a Grade 1 hat idea soon, or I may be accosted by grumpy Grade 1s!
First classroom test run with the write-on-wipe-off pockets. Major success. I foresee much use in the future.
We have an open-day tomorrow (Saturday) for prospective Prep parents for 2014. We had to change the big display board in the Prep area. Now… my classroom is NOT in the Prep area, but this is my display because it wouldn’t have been changed (or half as bright and colourful) if I hadn’t done it. 2.5 hours of my time (not including tissue-paper pom-pom making time) and it’s up and done.
In the next week or so we’ll be adding photos of all the Prep and Prep/1 kiddos with their Lorax moustaches and their quotes on how to look after the environment.
I’m going to go and collapse now. I’ll be back later this weekend with my review for the Magical Product Swap.
Enjoy your Friday!
