Photo Dump

I know that I've been all over the place and quite absent with my blogging for about a year now, I just can't seem to get ahead now that I'm teaching year 1! I don't know how other bloggers are able to blog a few times a week!

Anywho, I have been trying to remember to take photos of what we've been doing and even though I'm a bit sporadic with it, here are some that I haven't shared before.

I updated our whole brain teaching rules for this year. I'll be able to share this file with you once I receive the back up of my hard drive (which I dropped and broke.... and have just paid over $600 to have the data restored from...luckily they were able to retrieve 100% of the files, yippee!!).  



Random charts. I have made a simple editing checklist that my kids use along with the chart when writing. I'll be able to share that too. 



Crafts. 
Adjectives About Me is from this Parts of Speech pack by Amy Lemons.
Cat the Splat Easter craft is from this Splat the Cat Easter pack by Christie at First Grade Fever. Inside the egg book, the kids wrote about some story elements which was a good review of our English unit in Term 1. Some of the kids chose to also make a little Seymour to join Splat - isn't this one cute!

  Guided reading and spelling choices (from Term 1) drawers.


Random photos of the back of my classroom.




If you're in Australia, I hope you are enjoying your Easter break. I'm back to school tomorrow!

  1. Your classroom is amazing!! I love all of the colour and the anchor charts!

    How do you use the guided reading and spelling choices? Is it teacher choice or student choice?

    1. Hi Jemima, thanks for stopping by! The guided reading card is where I store a lot of the materials I need to pull out at a moments notice during guided reading to work on specific skills with students. The spelling cart is all student choice though. They can choose which activity to do when they do our spelling rotation. I might do a post later to show what's in each of the drawers.

      Cheers
