New Stuff in Prep/Year 1

29 May

Hello again…’s time to showcase a few new things that have been happening in my classroom over the past few weeks.

Here is myFive for Friday teacher post…

  1. Number Lines: We have been doing number lines to death in maths over the past few weeks. Lucky there are lots of fun hands on activities around to help us with this concept. The students love using the hanging geckos!gecko
  2. Cloud Dough: This week our  sensory activity for outside time was cloud dough.  They love playing with this stuff.IMG_1376
  3. Grandparent Letters – This term our history unit is titled “What was School Like for Grandma?”  This week we wrote letters to our Grandparents asking them some questions about their school days.  In return we are inviting our Grandparents to visit our classroom so we can show them what school is like in 2014.  In 12 years of teaching I have never had a Grandparent day before……… we will see how it goes!IMG_2736
  4. Laser maze – This week we turned our stage area into a lazer maze! The kids had more fun making it than they did playing in it!IMG_4268
  5. Chinese Finger Traps – I purchased a class set of Chinese Finger Traps to help my kiddies sit still during meditation.  They have been a huge hit although to date, not hugely successful!IMG_4156 

So there you go…..another week in Prep/Year 1.  I have a weekend full of writing report cards ahead of me…….yes you can feel sorry for me if you like 🙂

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

    Love the finger traps! Haven’t seen them in years. Might suggest them to my preppie’s teacher 🙂

    The cloud dough looks very cool! Do you provide activities for all outside playtimes?

      I always set up activites for our “Outside Inquiry” Time – which is separate from lunch play!

    Such a lot of great ideas here – can’t be easy thinking of them? Or maybe it is for you 🙂
