Week Update!

I can't believe how quickly this week went by! Crazy!

We only had a three day week at school but there seemed to be a lot to do after the holidays!

We were concentrating on the letters Cc and Kk! The children caught onto the /c/ sound very quickly!
On Wednesday we made pictures for ANZAC Day and then put together our ANZAC Day book on Thursday. After a special service on Thursday afternoon, we then had Friday off to remember. I was so proud of the great job the children did with their paintings.
We got our wedding pictures back from my Uncle this weekend! Here is a sneak peak!

Math Game Monday & Freebie

So much has happened over the last 3 weeks - we got married, went on our honeymoon, had Easter and now I am back to school tomorrow! I will give you a sneak peak into my wedding and honeymoon later in the week, but for now - I am excited that Math Game Monday is back!

Because I am back to school tomorrow after our 2 weeks holidays, we are going to do a quick picture and writing sentence. I thought I would share my outline with you! We are going to stick it in our portfolios as well.

Have a great week!

Rocket Block Names

Another quick share of an idea from the last few months! (I did get behind with my blogging, I will be much better during Term 2!

A lot of our beginning of the year activities were to do with the children's names, learning each other's names and making new friends. Many of the children in my class had come from different kindergartens and didn't know each other - we have had a real focus on THEM!

During R week, we made Rocket Block Names. First we graphed the number of letters in our name. This is how I make graphs with younger children (this is not the right graph but you can get the idea).  I have a picture of each student printed out, laminated and with a magnet on the back.
Then we wrote one letter on each piece of paper and made ourselves a rocket! 
 They looked great in our classroom on display!

April Currently

It's April, it's April!

I am linking up with Farley for another of her currently's!
This months...




I am home with Mum and Dad and Dad is watching (sleeping through) the Australian Swimming Trials for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

R and I get married this weekend - yay! So I took a week off for Long Service Leave to get myself organised and ready to go so I am loving that I get a total of 3 weeks off school!

My friends and family are all arriving during the week - I am very excited to be seeing everyone!

I do need a good night sleep - I need to actually be able to sleep in past 6am, that would be nice!

I get to school early and usually leave around 5pm - depending on meetings. The kids are at school from 8.45am until 3.20pm - very different to Farley (I couldn't do a 7.30 start with the kids!) We are calendar year in Australia so we finish just before Christmas!

Enjoy!
