Maths Tips for Parents of Young Children

Maths Tips for Parents of Young Children

Learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom. So much of it occurs at home and by exploring the world around us.  Find opportunities in your everyday life to use maths. Maths is fun. Yes, children need to learn maths facts but that doesn’t mean it can’t be engaging and linked to real life.  I remember my daughter on the floor often when I was preparing dinner. She had every piece of Tupperware out and saucepans and lids were favourite toys. It was messy. It was loud and cleaning up took forever but dinner got prepared and we talked. What shape

Everyone has been in a classroom, so it is always easy to feel you know what it is like to be a teacher.

As teachers, we do appreciate that we have an amazing job, with challenges and joys on a daily basis. This is simply a light-hearted look at things teachers never say. Enjoy! Oh dear! I didn’t notice Jenny was struggling with reading. The children stop everything they are doing to listen carefully

Maths ideas for Children with Extra Needs

Maths ideas for Children with Extra Needs

When children start school, not all children are working at a kindergarten level. Some will need time to catch up and others may progress very slowly due to disabilities. These maths ideas, linked to the Australian Curriculum, will help with hands on activities for each area of maths. Children without extra needs can also benefit from these maths ideas, just differentiate them if they are working above this level, e.g. more difficult patterns; count by 2s; hang only even numbered washing on the line; write own numbers; trace number words; sort larger amounts; share with bigger groups, and so on.

Do you know the difference between sentences, phrases and clauses?

Do you know the difference between sentences, phrases and clauses?

I have come across teachers with years of experience who still have more to learn in spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. Some have been high school English specialists at a professional development course. I’ve witnessed arguments in staff rooms over sentences.  I’ve had teachers correct me on my Facebook page . . . some incorrectly. It can be hard as a teacher not to correct all the sentences, grammar and spelling mistakes you see and it is fun when you come across a misplaced comma. But, always remember that the cafe owner who misses an apostrophe on the blackboard can probably cook amazing

Indian Inspired Elephant Collage

Indian Inspired Elephant Collage

  You will need: printouts (under FREEBIES), an elephant from Spotlight (optional – collage whatever you wish), Mod Podge, scissors, paint brush, paint smocks. Plan out your design. You don’t need to be too particular – you can change your mind throughout. Start gluing – at this stage just glue the paper on. This is really messy as you need to press the paper around the body. You may notice a few spots that are not very neat. Cut out some circles and patch them up.  Once the whole elephant is covered, leave to dry for 2 hours and then

Easy String Art

Easy String Art

You will need: Wool or string, nails, foam boxes, pencils and if you would like to use our outlines, you will find them under freebies on K-6 or Early Childhood. This can be a very cheap activity. We picked up the wool from an Op shop and the nails are cheap ones from a discount store. The nails were pretty weak – wouldn’t want to use them to actually hammer but they were perfect for this activity. We salvaged some Styrofoam boxes from our local grocery store for nothing but you could purchase foam from Spotlight or similar.   The great thing

Mask and Sculpture Art

Mask and Sculpture Art

  We shared the work of Jaime Molina on our Facebook page and were inspired to create some mask and sculpture art ourselves for the classroom. We particularly loved the nail sculptures. Take a look as they are brilliant!! We collected a range of resources and had a great deal of fun. We used nails like Molina did, toothpicks, feathers, straws, pipe cleaners and coloured sticks as decorations. We looked at a variety of masks/sculptures from around the world – Papua New Guinea, Africa, New Zealand and America, but just choose the culture or country you are studying.  The sculptures or masks can be
