Five for Friday - 16th May 2014
Here's a quick look back into the week that's been:

Our sound of the week was "sh". We did lots of Green Sheep activities this week, but sadly, no photos. I did however manage to get some photos of our "shells". The students were meant to make a pattern using crayons and then wash over with paint. Some forgot about the whole "patterning" part :)

Number Bracelets

In maths, we have been learning about numbers 10-20. This number bracelets were actually a colleagues and I borrowed them for a lesson. Students count the beads on each bracelet and then record the number next to the corresponding letter on the recording sheet.

Read to Someone

We have been practicing Read to Someone a lot this week.

Working as a Team

My talented husband makes robots :) So, Happy came in today to help teach "teamwork". The students had to work as a team to build a maze for him, then the robot navigated the course (he is an autonomous robot) and eventually...made it out! The kids loved it and had lots to write about afterwards in their writing books.

I discovered this amazing website through another blogger last weekend. It is fantastic for brain breaks. Basically, the class have a "champ" which they choose. Every time you complete an activity you earn points which make the champ grow bigger and you move up levels. My kids love it! Check it out here:

Best part is - it's FREE!!!!!!!!

Till next time,

Stay joyful!


  1. Ooo! I use GoNoodle too! My students ask for it everyday - I love that I can play the "calming" videos and they are so attentive because they want the points. Win win!
    Love the shells!

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!
