I have been such a bad blogger lately, all I seem to have time for is Five for Friday! Don't think it is going to get better anytime soon with reports needing to be done in the next 3 weeks.
Well I am glad you joined me even if I am a bad blogger at the moment :)
Last week we had our national testing on literacy and numeracy, known as NAPLAN. I am happy to say that all of my students completed the test with very little anxiety. I am so glad it is over and as a reward I gave our kiddos an art and craft morning, they were so excited. It was so quiet in the classroom as they concentrated on their creations, then some quiet social talk, it was a really lovely morning and a beautiful way to start the day.
This was one of the results of our Art morning. We are calling them Autumn leaves in a Puddle, we love, love, love them :)
We had our cross country run last week, this is my son just as he finished his race. We were so blessed to have beautiful sunshine even though it was freezing!
We have been using my Doubling Koalas game in Year 2 as we explore using doubles and near doubles as a mental computation strategy. This game has 3 different levels so it is great for differentiation, oh and the kiddos love it!
I have already put in a solid 4 hours on my reports today and I think I will probably have another 8 hours left till I am finished them, luckily the weather is co-operating and it is cold, wet and miserable so I feel quite happy to snuggle under a blanket with a cup of tea and type, type, type away.
Then it's Parent Teacher Interviews in the last week of term, oh the joys!
Head over to Doodlebugs to check out some more 5 for Friday!
