My Mum is growing these beautiful sunflowers and I couldn’t resist taking a photo of them!

At the moment I’m obsessed with eggs for breakfast. This is a weekend treat though, because I don’t have time to cook eggs in the morning before I run out the door!

This week school commenced for the year here in Melbourne. These Summer holidays marked the LEAST amount of time I spent in my classroom before teachers returned from break (a grand total of ONE DAY ONLY). This is a really quick shot of how my room is set up for this year. I’ve somehow managed to make the room feel bigger just by moving some things around.

I moved my reading corner this year. With a whole class of Foundation students I didn’t have a need for all my chapter books, so they’ve been boxed up. Plus, I put away a whole stack of books just to try and declutter the classroom a bit. That said, on the opposite side of the room I have a whole shelf of the books that I tend to use for read-alouds – mostly school-themed books, phonics books and Australian authors.

I have to say, this reading corner proved very popular with the new kiddos today.

Today was the first (half) day for my kiddos. I always take photos.

And yes, I know I’m supposed to call them ‘Foundation’ this year but that just DID NOT sit nicely in my little chalkboard sign. Do I feel bad? Not so much!

Especially not when the kiddos’ photos turned out pretty cute!

What was the highlight of your week?

  1. Happy back to school! How fun to see another part of the world starting school while our kiddos are in the middle of their school year. Your reading corner is adorable! Good for you, only spending a day in your room over summer holiday. Time away to refresh and rejuvinate is so important. Happy Friday!
    Joya 🙂

  2. Foundation? Foundation?? I thought you were kidding, but apparently not. If the bureaucrats want consistency, they should call it Grade Zero.

    Preps forever! Links the generations and warms the heart – that’s what we need more of in schools.

    🙂
