Graphing - A Word Wall

Graphing is a task that I love teaching. 
Developing a graph from data that students have collected is fun! Noisy but fun!

  

These Word Wall cards are great for displaying in your classroom. 
They have a heading, a description and an illustration. 
The size makes them great for display and still easy to see and read. 

I add the cards as we learn about the vocabulary about graphing. 


Included in this pack is a 'word splash' to do as an individual or it can be added to as a whole grade. 
The KWHL is great for capturing what students know before they start, what they want to know, how they think they will find it out and then after the unit of work they can record any new knowledge they have gained. 
This is great for sharing with parents at conferences. 





This pack is a great pack to help start you off on simple graphing. 




Happy graphing!

Harmony Day - March 21

Harmony Day is about celebrating cultural diversity. We should celebrate this every day, but this day highlights how great our country is.

We acknowledge this on the March 21st. 

Did you know that ...
  • around 45 per cent of Australians were born overseas or have at least one parent who was
  • we identify with about 300 ancestries
  • since 1945, more than 7.5 million people have migrated to Australia
  • 85 per cent of Australians agree multiculturalism has been good for Australia
  • apart from English, the most common languages spoken in Australia are Mandarin, Italian, Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Vietnamese, Tagalog/Filipino, Spanish and Hindi
  • more than 60 Indigenous languages are spoken in Australia.
(Stats taken from this link)

Australia is a great place to live because of this diversity. Harmony Day is a celebration of our cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.
We respect community, cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone.
The colour orange represents social communication and meaningful conversations. It is about the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. 
Last year I prepared a PowerPoint to share with my grade that provided information and tasks to help make a shared understanding of this day. 

Here are examples of what is in the pack.

Hello new followers...

Happy New Year everyone and may 2017 be amazing for us all.

I have so many new followers that I thought I would take the opportunity to re introduce myself to you..


I'm Paula from Paula's Place and have been teaching for a looonnnng time! I love my job, it is different every day and we never never stop learning.



I grew up in NSW in a town called Murwillumbah. I went to Teachers College in NSW too.
I started teaching in the mid 80s (yes a loooonng time ago) and taught in a large country school in Queensland. I spent three years teaching in Biloela. This is where I met my husband.


We moved to Victoria, where we both teach in schools in Ballarat. We have two kids - both at Uni.
I love to travel and have been fortunate in the last six years to go to America, Fiji, Malaysia, Bali and Singapore.

   

I am currently on a road trip with my daughter - we have travelled from Ballarat to Northern NSW to see family and we will be off to Brisbane on Wednesday, then Noosa, Coffs Harbour, Canberra and then home.  This is a great way to spend our summer break.


I have taught every year level and in the last six years have taught Prep for three years, 5/6, 3/4 for two years and now I'm heading back to 5/6. In 31 years I have either moved schools and/or classrooms every year! (I'm pretty good at packing and setting up).

I got into blogging in 2010 as a way of recording and sharing my learning space. 
Colleagues convinced me to put my work on TpT in 2011 and I have loved every part of this amazing journey. I have met so many teachers through this and have made some great friends around the world. 

My TpT store has been a passion of mine and I love the design process of each product and matching it to the learning needs of my students. There are products that go from K-6.

I forgot to mention I am addicted to vans...in a big way. I refuse to count them, as I could incriminate myself. 


Have a great summer everyone in the Southern Hemisphere and our Northern Hemisphere followers  keep warm and safe.
