Back to School Day 3

Not too much going on today with an hour of planning time in the afternoon. We will start Read to Self, be introduced to Sammy the Sequencing Seahorse and start creating a story map for Rosie's Walk. In math, I am going to pretty much follow the C2C Queensland lesson plans until I get to know the kids more and see where they are so I haven't included any resources for math.

  1. Hi Kylie -
    you've worked hard these holidays! Well done! I still have another 3 weeks to go but this time it's flying by - Tasmania is switching to 4 terms this year which means that our summer gets cut short this time.
    I was actually in Brisbane last week visiting family. Very hot!! Then we drove to Sydney - in 42C heat!
    Good luck with your first week!

    1. Oh, I would LOVE another 3 weeks! Next week I go back for class set-up and pupil free days, so my Summer is basically over :(

      I actually didn't know that Tassie wasn't already on 4 terms! How long did your Summer used to be?

      I'm really glad I'm not in a demountable this year - the last 3 years were awful, it just go so hot (and freezing in Winter). 42C is just crazy - those are days to spend at the cinemas or shopping!

    2. Our summer used to be closer to 8 weeks, but Term 1 would be 14 weeks, Term 2 was 12 weeks, and Term 3 was 16 weeks. As you can imagine, energy was zapped by then end of those long terms!!
      I hope that your first week goes well and you have a class of absolute darlings!

  2. Hi Kylie,
    I am surprised that you have gone back to school. We don't go back until 28th Jan. I am wondering when your school year ends? How hot is it up there. I would have thought Qld would go back later than us because of the hotter weather, although it has been mighty hot down here.

    1. Hi Rhonda, we haven't gone back yet, just getting my planning ready and posting it here in case people are looking for ideas. We go back for pupil free days Wed-Fri next week and I'll be setting up Mon/Tues. Our first day of school is Tuesday 29th due to Australia Day holiday. I wish it was later!

  3. Hi Kylie! It seems you are busy getting into the swing of things! Seems so wierd as we are in the middle of winter and the middle of our school year as of today!! :)
    We should do a pen pal exchange with our students, would you be interested? If not now later in the year for you?

    1. Hi Tiffany, we sure are busy getting started for a new year. The same happens to us when you guys had back to school - I usually end up chaning things in my room based on what I see in the back to school photos! Unfortunately, I've already set up pen pals with someone else. You could check out the Aussie Blogs tab under the header of my blog to see other Aussie teachers if you are interested. Thanks for the offer!
