I guess if it's Friday that means that holidays are almost over! :( Next week we have student free days, but after that it will be back to the grindstone. Luckily, today also means that it's time for Five for Friday! Here's my random moments from a lazy week.
Speaking of lazy... I have been spending a lot of time on my couch this week. Staying up late watching movies, then relaxing with a coffee after a sleep in each morning. I didn't want to share a photo of my couch (that would be weird), but here's what I spent a good chunk of my time watching just yesterday:
I love, love, love Anne of Green Gables - but she is a real time investment! Seven-ish hours of serious watching to get the whole story done! :)
I went into my classroom this week, hoping to get some organising done. FAIL! I think all I did was make an even bigger mess... and made myself stressed that my new library furniture hasn't arrived yet.
I ended up piling all the books in boxes (apart from the few you see here) and crossing my fingers that the selves will get here asap!
I did get one thing done - one of my bulletin boards was changed over to display our word family ribbons.
I hot glued the cards from Marsha's word families galore pack onto coloured ribbons and display them on the wall after we've learnt all about each word family. We move the ribbons around the room as needed during the week's activities before they go on the wall. The bonus is that they are so easy to pack away and store because they are all glued together.
One of my goals this winter break was to get some resources ready for the start of term - particularly for those kidlets who needed a little extra practice with some important concepts. I made lots of reading fluency games, some maths activities, and today made up these cute mailboxes and envelope cards for sorting CVC words by medial vowel sound.
My kidlets are going to love it!! I called this pack You've Got Mail - it's even got a few worksheets to use as a record of student learning.
Winter in Queensland is gorgeous - during my lazy days I've spent some time reading in the sun and looking at this view.
Has anyone seen this show? Usually I am a huge fan of cheesy reality TV, but even this one makes me cringe.
A bunch of us Aussie bloggers were chatting about how much we would love to be in Vegas this week, hanging out and having fun at the TpT conference. Every time I check Instagram I have major FOMO, so I've started saving towards next year!! :) If you're there or going soon, I hope you are having an amazing time! As for me - I'll stay here and relax on the couch...
