Five for Friday!

Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week and on your blog. Check out the linky party at Doodle Bugs Teaching.

Figurative Language

I was in a class the past two weeks and the teacher had been working on Figurative Language.  She was in those days, but I was in for Planning relief or assistance.  She was excited to have me in because of how enthusiastic I was with teaching Figurative Language.  I love analyzing them with students and have them use it in their own writing.  Make sure to check out these task cards by Rachel Lynette!

Making 100 with Year 2s

This was something I worked with students that they had a hard time understanding.  I found that ABCYA.com had an interactive 100 chart that you could use to demonstrate.  They had to roll the dice to make a 2-digit number and colour it one colour, then had to figure out how much more they needed to make 100 using the chart.  

Science with PrePrimary

We have been learning about the necessities for living things.  The past two weeks we focused on our bodies.  We did an activity that caused us to move around and compare our heartbeats before and after activity, then we talked about what causes sweat and how sweat helps us.  This was a cute video at the end of the lesson regarding heartbeat that the young ones enjoyed.  My group is pretty good with science and LOVE learning more!

Writing Anchor Charts

If you haven't checked it out yet, I've uploaded another set of Anchor Charts!   This one focuses on writing!  I posted this last month, but I've noticed more buyers purchasing this along with my Language Arts & Reading Anchor charts!  Found them all at my TPT store!

Job Offers

No picture here, but recently I was offered a full-time position here in Australia!  Once that one job offer came in I got a call for an interview and offered another position at a school nearby.  I'm just so happy to have the opportunity to be in a classroom regularly!  It's been great doing relief work for 7 months to get used to Aussie schools & curriculum.  So anxious!
