Photo Randomness

I've got no real direction for this post, just random photos that I've taken over the past month or two at school!

On the 100th Day we read One Hundred Hungry Ants and viewed the book on youtube. We paused the video and made the lines of ants with unifix cubes (1 line of 100, 2 lines of 50 etc). Would the ants have gotten to the picnic faster if they stayed in 1 line? My kids couldn't decide, they were very divided in their opinions!
This is the rotation board I've been using for about 7 weeks (this term). I love it, so easy. I use photos of my kids to show what group they are in (covered with the smilies). Easy to change kids to different groups when needed. Also the flowers are my spelling rotations using Words Their Way.
At the start of this term, we did a lot more work on making inferences and visualising. I got these poems from Deanna at Mrs Jump's Class. I have this awful wall that can open in my room so I put them up there to try and add some colour. This was before it was finished, I have 26 kids so there was a lot more of their work to add when this was taken.
Here was a chart I made up when we were focusing on inferring and others when we were learning length in math.
Have a good weekend everyone! :)

  4. Love your colourful rotations board! I haven't done one of these yet this year and I need to, because at least once a week I almost mess up my groups by sending kids to the wrong place. :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

  5. Wow, your boards put mine to shame :) I love the look of your rotation wheel. How does it work?


  6. Your inferring poster looks great - I am your newest blog follower!

  7. Your inferring bits and pieces are very Debbie Miller / Tanny McGregor... Do you use either of them?

  8. Love that you use posters, I have started doing the same and my kids just love helping to create them. Have just discovered your blog and I'm so happy to finally see a fantastic Australian blogger!!
