Five for Friday | Feb 5th


I’m going to take a moment to reflect on how absolutely difficult it is to actually stop and remember to take photos during the first week of Foundation/Prep/Kinder. (To be honest, it’s kind of hard to remember to do anything except keep going during this first week.) I apologise in advance for not too many teaching photos because I honestly was so busy running around that I simply forgot to take photos. I will try better next week!


Prepping for another day of Start Up Learning at school – we filled in this chart as a class. It’s not fancy or shiny, but it worked! I also added a few clipart pieces from some of my favourite clip artists to jazz it up a tiny bit!



I actually remembered to make myself a tea one morning this week as I ran out the door. I call that a win! Kiwi Sorbet by T2 Tea in one of their bright pink mugs!



We made a list of all the things that were important for our class in the upcoming year. Number 1? HAVE FUN! A new class motto for 2016!



Friday afternoon on my way home. That’s bag one of three. Filled with things to do on the weekend. I refused to leave work this afternoon until all student books had their covers and student name labels on them. After a big week I am one exhausted teacher!



But do you know what makes me feel better. THIS FACE! How can you not love this face!


It’s Friday night now and I think I need to go to bed! (Oh, what an exciting life I lead!)

I’m planning my upcoming Teacher Tip Tuesday posts (if you have any things you’d like to see tips on leave comments below) and some new general classroom posts for the next few weeks.

I hope you all have a marvellous weekend!

  1. I’m sure your sweet dog misses you while you’re back at work! I love the phrase “have a go”! I’m hoping you can find some time to relax this weekend. I’m actually home on this snowy Friday. School was cancelled, because it’s been snowing since before daybreak! Have a wonderful week.

    • For some of my kiddos at this time of year, just trying to do something new sends their anxiety sky-rocketing, so ‘having a go’ is really important.
      As someone who’s never experienced (and probably never will, where I live) a snow day, it sounds nice – but I can imagine that it’s one of those experiences that is and isn’t a good thing at the same time? I hope that you have a wonderful Friday, though!
