Five for Friday

For the first time, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching Five for Friday linky party. I have been reading so many of the last few weeks, that I thought it was time. It is Saturday in Australia, am I am so glad it is the weekend - 2 more weeks until Easter break!
Labour Day Holiday on Monday meant I could finally get all my crafty papers, stamps and punches all sorted in the new house. R bought me this shelf and I stocked up on plastic tubs from Bunnings - no more cardboard boxes for me! I'm so excited, it looks so pretty - I think I might make some pretty labels for the boxes.
Love my new shoes! They need a bit of stretching out though, why don't they just make half sizes!!!! Anyone have a quick fix for me so I don't have to get blisters?
I founds some more of my picture story books! Love these ones - was so excited to unpack a box and find them inside. The Black Book of Colours is full of beautiful illustrations on black paper, written in both raised braille and English - great for a senses unit.
My class went a little crazy over extra homework this week! They have spelling, reading and a small amount of Maths set by the Level 3 teachers - 9 of my students (in pursuit of extra table points) did EXTRA homework this week - a total of 27 extra sheets! WOW! They love to do Magic Number at home - they choose a number and write it in the middle of their page. Then around the number, the children write as many sums as they can to equal that number!
 My Teaching Clock from Amazon arrived! Yay! I have missed having a clock in my classroom that I can just pick up at any instant and do some quick time activities. Here it is set on a teacher's favourite time, especially on a Friday afternoon - hehe!

    1. It is like Christmas, especially since every year I forget what my Christmas decorations look like!
