DAY 6 of the 12 Days of Teaching Challenge: Feet up Friday
My day yesterday was anything but a feet up kind of day. We had our Prep to Year 2 Big Day Out to Puffing Billy where we caught the train from Belgrave to Lakeside and then had a picnic lunch and a play at Emerald Lake Park. When we got back to school, we played a number of relay games and duck duck goose, along with doing some quiet drawing on the pavement with chalk before our BBQ dinner. After dinner the preps went home and the Year 1 and 2 students watched a movie before heading to bed. I had to not only move the elf which I mentioned in my post earlier today but I also had to play tooth fairy for a student who had lost their tooth during the day. Her dad had brought some coins in to put under her pillow once she was asleep. I had to make sure all the kids were asleep so no one caught me being the tooth fairy 😂 We then woke for brekky before they went home this morning. So my feet up Friday has happened today instead as I’m exhausted from yesterday’s shenanigans 😴

DAY 5 of the 12 Days of Teaching Challenge: Something you’re proud of
This week I had to sit an interview for my current position. Being at a small semi-rural school means that ongoing positions are hard to come by due to the small and fluctuating student numbers. So, I had to reapply for my job which is a contract position and had to go through the interview process. Although I knew that my colleagues were rooting for me, the process isn’t a nice one and I was still nervous knowing someone else may have much more experience or knowledge than me.
I’m pleased to announce that I was the successful applicant and that means I get to keep my position at my beautiful little school, in my same Prep/1 class and I will be teaching a lot of the same kids again in 2020.
I’m so proud of myself for pulling myself through the process and for the amazing feedback I received about how I interviewed. It made it all worth it!

Consolidating 1-20 and letter and or sound identification 👌 🦋can do this as a whole class or small group activity. Idea is to ask if they can place a letter by it’s name or sound onto a number.
I’ve also done this in partners. 🙌🏼

I need to play catch up on the 12 Days of Teaching Challenge so I apologise for the multiple upcoming posts!
DAY 4: Random act of kindness
This term we have taken part in @giftedandtalentedteacher 20 Day Kindness Challenge. As part of this, the kids and myself have had to take part in a number of random acts of kindness including random treats for the staff, anonymous notes of positivity and kindness, and surprise coffees. I’m constantly talking to my class about the importance of kindness and that’s why it’s so important that we as educators lead by example 💕

Flashback to first year of teaching
@twentysomethingartteacher

A book I made in my first year of teaching in 2005. I can’t believe I still have it😲 I am known as being a hoarder though sooo...🤣 Before we had all the fabulous clip art available today I used to use old calendars. Post Xmas sales were great to pick up a bargain👏

I’m happy to say that next year I will be teaching year one again! 😁 It baffles me how quickly each year goes by! In just 2 weeks I say goodbye to my current year ones/pre-primary’s 😭 and meet my new bunch in the new year and start all over again! •

We had our Prep to Year 2 Big Day Out and sleepover at school yesterday which was great fun BUT we didn’t know how we were going to move my elf and the one from the class next door. So once they were all asleep, in ninja mode, I crept past, grabbed them and we put them outside with a bowl of cereal ready for this morning when the kids came out to eat brekky. They were very surprised 😊

Bit behind on the #12daysofteaching challenge but here’s a mix of day 3 and 5- a part of my classroom that I love and something that I’m proud of!

I’ve talked before about my ugly peeling classroom walls and how I have to go to great lengths to try and cover them up so our classroom space feels more welcoming! I was really proud of how I managed to do that in this corner, and I think it’s everyone’s favourite part of our classroom! I love looking over and seeing kids curled up in the cushions reading a book, or using our calming strategies that are also displayed in this corner now too!

I’m VERY ready for a change from the fluoro pink and green for next year, but this corner has given us all lots and lots of joy this year! 💕

I love our naughty elf, I can blame my mistakes on him. My students and I made a birthday cake for a student in my class and it turned into a disaster because I forgot to grease the pan... thankfully naughty elf “destroyed the cake” and made it into cake pops instead

🎄LANGUAGE EXPERIENCE APPROACH 🎄Last week I involved my class in setting up and decorating a Christmas tree. I provided them with specific vocabulary such as ‘base’, ‘branches’, ‘decorate’ and ‘baubles’ and wrote these on a Christmas Words anchor chart. Using the @topteacher resource, the students then had to write a procedural text on how to put up a Christmas tree. Every time they used a Christmas Word from the experience, they underlined it in red.

Where going on a bear 🐻 hunt theme:

Love reading (singing)!the bear hunt! Great to emphasise positional language. -over,under, through etc. high lights action verbs (happens words)
-used it as a writing prompt where did they go ?? How did they go through it? Or using each picture of the changing scenes to add adjectives in to describe the changing setting.
Or have a Teddy’s bear picnic... with healthy teddy themed food 🙌🏼

Today we took our students to Ford’s Kids Day Out at @adventureparkgeelong it was freezing but our prep students had a great time in the water! I had to have a go on a kiddie slide and let’s just say that wetsuits and adult bodies lead to maximum speed and a great splash.😂 #Iteachprep #iteachspecialed #iteachspecialeducation #kidsdayout #specialeducationteacher #teachersofinstagram #aussieteachertribe #aussieteachersofinstagram #downunderteachers #teachersdownunder
