We are on a roll!

15 Feb

I wrote the title “We are on a roll!” on Tuesday……….too soon. We were on a roll and then my classroom flooded on Thursday! Putting us into complete chaos and saw us spending the end of the week in a temporary classroom. It looks like we won’t be back in our classroom until Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

So let’s just say we are learning how to be flexible!

Here is my Five for Friday teacher post.

  1. Maths Groups with Parent Helpers – This week we commenced parent helpers for maths groups.  We are still in the “training” phase and are keeping the activities pretty easy.  I have 6 small groups (4 students per group) and 6 activities for the week.  Student complete 2 activities per day for 3 days (Tues/Wed/Thurs).
  2. Big Year 7 Buddies: Excitement plus!! The students were very excited to meet their Year 7 buddy this week. Over the year they will be helping us with many activities
  3. Listening Post – This week we introduced the listening post as an activity during our inside inquiry time.  The students loved listening to stories with the headphones.IMG_3441
  4. Valentines Day Hearts – We made these cute cards for our parents for valentine’s day.  The threading around the outside proved a BIG challenge for some!  IMG_3474
  5. Eye Dropper Painting – Our painting experience this week was eye dropper painting.  The students loved experimenting with make new colours.IMG_3444

    The listening post is such a sweet little set up. I might make a listening post at our place! My kids love audio books. x
