After a very long hiatus from my blog I'm back! And with a gorgeous new blog design to boot!!
I thought a great first post back would be a Five for Friday! It is Saturday evening where I am, but it's still Friday somewhere!
I have had an amazing start to the new school year. In my class I have 22 preps and they are all gorgeous. They are an incredibly helpful, happy and persistent bunch. Yesterday we did our first session of maths groups and I set out a few maths activities that were too hard to see how they reacted. Only one of my poppets gave up and had a whinge - every other one was persistent and had a go even if they weren't too sure about how to get it done. I'm really proud of the behaviours this class are showing, and it is sure to be a fantastic year with them!
As with any start to the year a good clean-up is necessary.
The way I have set up my classroom (and I will post a classroom tour next) has the smartboard and whiteboard in front of a window. It works perfectly for the way the room is set up, except it is quite bright through the windows. As a way to cut down the light I laminated some cellophane and bluetac-ed it to the window.
A new school year also needs some new 'words to live by'.
And a new hairstyle!
