Today has been a lovely day – even considering it’s the last day of the holidays. Here in Australia we have one more term until the end of the year, and this term is looking like it’s going to be BRILLIANT.
Next week we have our School Dance (my Prep/1s look gorgeous dancing the Heel-and-Toe Polka, the Virginia Reel and a Waltz – I can’t wait to see them in their special performance) and our House Swimming Carnival (I need to dig out something yellow to wear for my House team this year). My class is also about to hit 1000 blog viewers (they’re very excited about the class party that will follow). We’ll celebrate the official opening of our new school building, celebrate Halloween, Spring, Summer and fit our normal curriculum in, too!
Busy, busy, busy.
But on to some resources that I’ve been making!
This week I completed a new activity pack for Prep (equivalent to Kindergarten) learners. It’s called Ladybug Letter Match (featuring uppercase and lowercase letters), and features cute ladybug clipart by Graphics from the Pond, perfect for the start of Spring – or just for some colour!
This pack includes uppercase and lowercase letter cards for each letter of the alphabet, plus an assortment of recording sheets that can be used alongside the cards. I’m happy to add extra recording sheets if anyone needs specific ones added, too!
The cards can be used for sorting activities, as flashcards, or even for spelling (just print multiple copies of each letter).
So, technically this is the second freebie in this post (see above), but I just can’t resist!
As we come back from holidays on Monday we do our usual holiday recount writing. Only… doing it the same way as always didn’t seem like the way to start such a great term. We’re going to think about our holidays from a different perspective – using our senses.
Today’s freebie includes 4 writing templates for you to use with your students.
Students can write their names on the line (so it reads ‘On Stefanie’s Holidays’) or you could reinforce the sight words ‘my’ or ‘the.’ Also, the difference between the 2 pages is in the last box – you have a choice of ‘I touched’ or ‘I felt.’

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
