I made these clouds last year and I wanted to use them again sooo.... I added coloured rain drops with each students name and birthday and now it's 'raining birthdays!' -Sarah
This year I'm faced with a new cohort of students with various abilities and needs. One of my new students is a beautiful little girl with Down's Syndrome, she is so much fun to be around and very cheeky!! As I'm still getting to know her she likes to do the occasional 'sprint' when one of us is tied up with another student, by sprint I mean sneak out the door and run down the corridor, to another room, toilets you name it! Our lovely Learning Support Officer (LSO /aide) came up with a brilliant Learning Support, New Students, She Likes, Toilets, Getting To Know, Name It, This Year

If you haven't already get on over to our YouTube channel 'Two Teachers One Blog' where Sarah has recorded some of our favorite books! Today I gave small groups an iPad and allowed them to choose a book they would like to listen to (small groups as a lot of iPads were flat aghh). As you can see from these snaps all groups were 100% engaged and loved watching/listening to the stories! I promise I'll put some up too when I get a spare minute but they are brilliant, especially in the younger years.

We have been focusing on skip counting in grade 1/2 this week.. My amazing team teacher Scarlett came up with this idea and it's too good not to share! She used a plastic plate and hole punched around the outside.. Next to each hole she wrote a different multiple of 5, students then had a piece of wool and had to thread their wool through the holes whilst saying their 5 times tables (in order). She also made harder plates starting at a higher number eg. 65 that the students then had to thread to

Today we focused on more skip counting but this time by 10's. We started with a cute little feet activity that encouraged the students to think of '10 toes'. From there one of the groups got to build fences (imagine the pay dough is green) each fence paling had a different multiple of 10 written on it. Students needed to start at 10 and count by 10's to put their fence in order in the 'grass/play dough'. This was such a great activity and really helped the students with their skip counting! -Ash
