There’s something totally mesmerising about a glitter sensory bottle! They make the perfect sensory play material for little learners of all ages and are great for taking time to cool down in the classroom. They are so easy to make with just a few simple materials, most of which you probably already have!
As a brand new teacher, I always felt a little awkward having parents in my classroom. Maybe it was just because I am an introvert, but something about chatting to parents made me really, really anxious!
Now that I’m a teacher-mum, I can really see why it’s so important to build positive relationships with the parents in your classroom! These parents love their little ones more than words can ever explain, so when it comes time for them to send their children off to school for the first time, I am certain that they are a big ball of nerves and just as nervous to meet you as you are them!
When I was teaching, I often had a tricky time getting my prep students to line up in an orderly fashion. It was even harder to get them to walk sensibly around the school. That’s when I made my mystery walker cards!
