Plot Profiler, Dream Weaver and Fortune Teller.

Here are some examples of work from this last semester. 

The level of conversations from reading and sharing a book in a structured way enables deep questions, thoughts and extended learning bu making connections together.

Five for Fri - 26th June

fiveforfriday2_thumb[3]

Here are my five randoms for this week

 


A little bit of work on mass this week. 
Some kids were 'hefting', while others were converting measurements, some were calculating with decimal amounts. 

   


Our winter days have been cold and wet, but we have had the most amazing sunsets. With work being so hectic - it is nice to stop and see the world around us. 


With the end of the term. I have had two Literature Circle groups finish their books. 
They have completed their tasks well this term and I look forward to a new books for each of them. 
I have scaffolded their learning with this recording book from my Literature Circle book. 
I will be adding some new roles to this over the next few days. 





 

Our procedure writing went very well this week. 
We made one of those folded books and recorded the procedure within it. 




  

We always gather prior knowledge before we begin a new unit of work. next term we are looking at extinct and endangered flora and fauna. 
This gives our team an idea of what they already know and then we extend their thinking, rather then just teach what we think they should know. 


Happy summer to all those in the Northern Hemisphere and happy winter to us in the Southern Hemisphere. 
We are beginning a two week break - happy holidays.




(Sorry, we do get snow! We do have great ski resorts)

Dare to Dream

Dare to Dream Challenge


I create products for these reasons - I want to be the best I can be and have my kids be the best they can be.

I compare my work and level of creativity before my journey with Paula's Place and now, the professionalism of my resources alone have motivated more of my students to do better.
As I share with colleagues, see my work pop up in other learning spaces, receive feedback. network with amazing teachers around the world - I know this was the right choice for me.

These girls are hosting the challenges for the next few weeks - check out their blogs...

Here are my five randoms for this week

 
Twenty nine years ago, Tony and I got married.
Hey it was the 80's - big hair, meringue dresses and long veils - what can I say?


    

I have joined a whole heap of bloggers and have made over one of my products and given it a face lift. 





 

We have so many nice places here in our town to relax after work. 
This was the night market where there are a few local crafters selling their work and a little mulled wine. 


This was taken at 10:30 - winter is here!
I have been working on a watermark and joining text and an image. 
With some help from my daughter and some photo shopping skills - nailed it.
