Playground Revamp

14 Sep

Welcome to another week in my Prep/Year 1 classroom.

This week has been loooooong.  Some weeks seem longer than others and this one went forever. It may be because I just want to be sitting on the plane flying off on holidays.  Have I mentioned that 11 weeks terms are too long, especially for little people (and their teachers).

Here is my Five for Friday teacher post (I’m a tad late and am posting this on a Saturday!).

  1. Foam Prints – This week our paint experience were foam prints.  Some students really took their time, thinking about which colours to use and making patterns on the paper.IMG_2086[1]IMG_2092[1]
  2. Readers Cup: This Monday is our school Readers Cup.  We have read, reread, discussed and analysed the book: Fearless.  Fingers crossed we can answer the questions (and I will be relieved to not have to read this book again for awhile!).Fearless
  3. Inside Time – I love watching and listening to the students during inside time. It’s when you really discover just what they know and understand.  Check out this conveyor belt that some students made this week!IMG_1968[1]
  4. A Picnic Table – We ordered a picnic table for a “dead spot” in our playground.  We are hoping that the students will use it a lunch time and that we can also use it as a outdoor teaching area during small group time.  It has been a hit so far!IMG_2103[1]
  5. Playground Revamp- On Friday we had a lovely group of Mums paint a counting snake, hopscotch and handball court on our cement area.  It looks fantastic and the students are just busting to play on them.IMG_2101[1]

Well that’s a wrap for Term 3 (I won’t be posting next week as I’ll be too busy packing my bags!).

See you all next term.

Today I am linking up with FLOG YOUR BLOG FRIDAY

    I teach at a primary school too. 11 weeks is far too long. In NSW our first and last terms this year are 11 weeks (well for the teachers the children get a few days short in Term 4.) Happy holidaying – a time to catch some rest before the final term. Don’t think school work for the whole holiday 🙂
