Anyways to get to the teachery part of this post. I have never been in a job share situation before so I was very unsure about how the break up of responsibilities was going to come about. In the end though I was very pleased, I am going to be taking Art (yay!) ICT (to integrate with the Science Unit for the term), poetry for English and because the students use individual spelling lists I am going to focus on spelling rules and patterns. For Maths I will be exploring some of those areas that need revision to begin with, like fractions and time and then perhaps changing the focus a little later on. The other great news is that I have picked up lots of other subbing (relief) days at the same school so I am beginning to be more of a familiar face which is nice.
Today I was in a Prep class and I got to use my second That Cat reader as well as a product that is in the making "Count it, Colour it, Graph it!" For a sneak peek download your copy of the Under the Sea one I used today by clicking on the pic below.
That's it for today folks! I am off to cook dinner, oh and get some planning done!
