There’s no doubt about it. Teachers LOOOOOVE Pinterest! During my first years as a teacher, I spent many loooong nights on Pinterest searching for teaching and learning inspo for my class. I remember coming across these amazing Alphabet Drawers and just knew that I needed a set for my own classroom! They are just perfect for storing little figures for each letter of the alphabet which can then be used for sorting and matching activities.
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.
Ahh Christmas is just around the corner so my toddler and I have been working on her Santa Letter!
At 2.5 years old, she is just beginning to understand Christmas and all things Santa. It’s a stark contrast to last year where she couldn’t get away from the bearded man in red quick enough! Miss 2.5 obsessed with waving to him each time we pass Santa’s stall in the local shopping centre. But she’s always stumped when asked what she wants him to deliver on Christmas Eve!
If you’re looking for a simple End of Year writing task, you’ve come to the right place!
As the end of the school year quickly approaches, you might be starting to think about how far your Little Learners have come over the year with you as their teacher. You’ve taught your little Preppies how to line up and walk quietly through the school. They’ve learnt how to sit on the carpet and show respectful listening. You’ve taught them how to read and how to count to 20 (and beyond). I’m sure you’ve taught hundreds if not thousands of valuable lessons during their time in your class!
Babies develop and grow at a rapid pace during their first year of life and there are many things you can do to help fire off those brain connections! Visual stimulation is an important developmental stage which you can help strengthen very easily.
In just a few weeks time, I am due to give birth to our second child! We’ve been using busy bags for our toddler for quite some time but I’ve been working on some new ones to pack in a bag ready to bring to the hospital when she comes to visit her baby brother.
