My Mum is growing these beautiful sunflowers and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them!
At the moment I’m obsessed with eggs for breakfast. This is a weekend treat though, because I don’t have time to cook eggs in the morning before I run out the door!
This week school commenced for the year here in Melbourne. These Summer holidays marked the LEAST amount of time I spent in my classroom before teachers returned from break (a grand total of ONE DAY ONLY). This is a really quick shot of how my room is set up for this year. I’ve somehow managed to make the room feel bigger just by moving some things around.
I moved my reading corner this year. With a whole class of Foundation students I didn’t have a need for all my chapter books, so they’ve been boxed up. Plus, I put away a whole stack of books just to try and declutter the classroom a bit. That said, on the opposite side of the room I have a whole shelf of the books that I tend to use for read-alouds – mostly school-themed books, phonics books and Australian authors.
I have to say, this reading corner proved very popular with the new kiddos today.
Today was the first (half) day for my kiddos. I always take photos.
And yes, I know I’m supposed to call them ‘Foundation’ this year but that just DID NOT sit nicely in my little chalkboard sign. Do I feel bad? Not so much!
Especially not when the kiddos’ photos turned out pretty cute!
What was the highlight of your week?
