Friday, phew, I made it! I was unsure at the start of the week but we got there! As always, I love that it is Friday afternoon already in Australia, I won't be loving Sunday night though, it will still be Sunday morning for most of you! I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
Our school holidays have come and gone - time seems to go by way too quickly! Over the weekend, we finished tidying up our garden and planted our veggies! There is nothing like fresh tomatoes straight from the garden so I hope these three grow as big as last years! Same for the strawberries.
We finally cleaned up this section of our garden. It was getting overgrown. Our dog, Lexi is loving the cleared spaces, she can run through the garden now!
We have started a new topic this term - we are looking at old and new toys. I just loved the artwork to do with our last terms topic so I just can't bring myself to taking it down! The kids loved making the sea animals!
Children can't get enough of this book! A few had borrowed it from the school library and today 6 children wanted to borrow it. We read it in class - they loved it! Have you read it to your class?
This week was "th" week - we made thumbprint animals on Thursday! I haven't been able to find any ink pads at our local craft stores, so I made my own! I used kitchen sponges and soaked them in watered down paint over lunchtime. They worked perfectly and dried straight away!
Here are some samples. Children are so creative - they couldn't wait to take them home to show their Mum's and Dad's!
This is how I feel at the end of today - so tired, my feet are up and I am ready for somebody to cook dinner for me - anyone?
I just looked over, Lexi feels the same way, she is asleep under the recliner on the couch where my husband is sitting. I guess that means I am the only one who can get up to cook dinner.
Have a lovely weekend! Head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to read some more Five for Fridays!
