Fridays have always been my favourite day of the week, and now they are for another reason.
Doodle Bug Five for Friday Linky Party!!
It's a great way to sum up the week and I love getting a sneak peek into the other amazing classrooms that link up.
So! We ran out of hand sanitiser this week, I promptly went to the supermarket to get some more. I chose a Dettol brand at what I thought was a great price. Turns out I didn't buy hand sanitiser, I bought hand soap instead (sigh), and didn't realise until the kids came to me with soapy hands saying 'It won't rub in!'. So back I went to the supermarket and came back with this deliciously inviting GREEN hand sanitiser. Needless to say the kids were very impressed.
I also decided that I needed a new set of hand sanitiser labels, so I made these! They are available in my TPT store now!
I always drill into my kids how important presentation is to their completed work. My little wonders have heard me loud and clear! No more sloppy grey lead drawings with stick legs and mixed-match colours. They now give me background, bright colours and gorgeous drawings.
It's great to see them show such pride in their work.
This week, as part of our poetry unit, we wrote some free verse poems. To inspire us we went outside and sketched whatever inspired them. The little wonders sketched magpies, galaghs, trees and flowers. I really love this photo, the little wonders have learnt to carry on working when I'm taking photos, I love catching honest moments.
I've decided to begin the long process of organising a classroom library. The first step is to level the books I already have. Wouldn't the world be a better place if there was a single program/website/app that could level ALL my books?? Of course it would, but alas, there is no such tool.
The inspiration for my library is, of course, Maria Manore's classroom library.
Who isn't in love with it??
I purchased her Classroom Library Labels which are absolutely gorgeous!
Anyone else out there a HUGE Mo Willems fan?
He is one of my all time favourite authors, and for good reason. His books are entertaining, funny and full of character. The little wonders love hearing about the Pigeon and his adventures.
I am suuuuper excited that this little beauty, Mo's newest book, is currently on it's way to me and will land on my doorstep any day now. I can't wait to read it to the kids, a title that I'm sure they can all relate to!
Thanks for reading :)
Enjoy your long weekend!
