Last week, I was #1 on the Five for Friday linky! This week I'm going to be about #90 because I've been spending time with my gorgeous nephew instead of stalking Doodle Bugs until she posted, like I did last Friday night. :) Here are my five random moments for today:
If you're here that means that you can see my GORGEOUS new blog design! I was so excited to work with Kerri from The Cutest Blog on the Block and she did an amazing job of designing just what I wanted. I gave her a few ideas to start with - colours and patterns I like - and she took it from there. The whole process was very quick and painless, if you're in the market for a new design I would highly recommend TCBOTB. :)
We're right in the middle of Winter here in Queensland. That means the weather is just perfect for taking 'Read to Self' outside! This week we took our book boxes with us and enjoyed the sunshine.
I've got a few new books to add to the classroom library, too! After they've been covered these guys will be added to the collection.
Our phonics focus this week was 'c' - spelt with c, k and ck. We sorted words into hoops...
...made a poster...
|This was my fave - she spelt the words all by herself and the drawings are just too cute!|
...and made paper plate crowns.
To make these we just painted paper plates and decorated them with sparkles. My TA used a craft knife to cut an asterisk shape in the centre and folded the triangles up. The kidlets were super excited to wear these home to show their parents! :)
Tomorrow I'm heading out shopping to try and find some furniture for my office space. I pinned this image and am determined to find a desk just like this one:
If you're in Australia and you know where I can find one, please leave me a comment!
I have one more week with my kidlets this term and then it's holidays!! Although I have a tonne of things to get done, the fact that I only have to survive 5 more days is enough to make me feel really relaxed. So tonight I'm whiling away my time watching a random movie (National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, anyone?) while waiting for 'Say Yes to the Dress' to come on! In the ads I'm working on a product for TpT that combines fine motor with 2D shape knowledge. I snapped a pic during my favourite part of Christmas Vacation - when Clark turns the lights on. :)
I hope wherever you are, you're enjoying a relaxing weekend!
