Week One – 2014

1 Feb

Hello and welcome to the 2014 school year!

I have Prep/Year 1 again this year and have 11 excited Preps and 12 delightful Year 1’s in my class.  I have moved to a much bigger classroom this year and I am very excited about all my new space!

Each Friday throughout the school year I will do a  Five for Friday teacher post where I showcase 5 happenings from my classroom. I hope you enjoy seeing what we do!

  1. 100 days of school – This year we are counting up to 100 days of being at school.  I asked a parent (who I know is very arty) to make a tree for this activity.  It is the most amazing tree ever!!!IMG_3376
  2. Starting School Books: This collection of picture books has saved me this week.  They are a easy way to teach students what starting school is all about!IMG_3333
  3. Circle Time – Circle time is a great way to learn about each other. Our favourite circle time game this week was when we all closed our eyes and I covered one student with a blanket.  When we opened our eyes we had to work out who was under the blanket and remember their name. Simple but very fun!!
  4. Visual timetable – My visual timetable has saved me this week! Especially with those teary kids, it is great to be able to count how many things we have to do before we go home.  We take down each activity card as we complete each lesson. (sorry I forgot to take a photo of this!).
  5. All About Me posters – We have spent alot of time this week learning about each other (especially each others names!).  Each students made a “All About Me” poster to share with the class (this idea is stolen borrowed straight from pinterest!).IMG_3369

Well that has been my week.

I don’t know about the students but I am so so tired.  My eyes are half closed as I write this post.  I am  looking forward to a sleep in tomorrow!

Before I go, I am going to share a joke that one of my students told me this week.

Q. What did the number zero (0) say to the number eight (8).

A. Nice belt!!!

Cute hey!

and because it’s Friday I am linking up with FLOG YOUR BLOG FRIDAY
