Here in Australia, many teachers are heading back to school after a nice little break over Summer. Prep, Foundation and Kindergarten students all over Australia have met their new teachers for the first time and are probably settling into life in the classroom. It can be a little bit scary and overwhelming for our little people, so I’m all for ideas that help settle their nerves as they begin their 13 year schooling adventure!
Today I’d like to share how you can make magic play dough! This is a great little gift to give your students on the first day of school.
I often hear teachers talking about how they organise the rest of their class while they are doing guided reading with their students. In my classroom, we used the Daily 5 which worked beautifully! I’m going to write about how I introduced each part of the Daily 5 with my Preps so that you can see how it worked in my classroom.
Starting school can be a scary time for little 4 and 5 year olds as well as their parents! Today I would like to share some ideas to make the first week of school a little easier on everyone.
