I am so blown away by our first attempt at persuasive writing. 😱 They had to write a letter to me persuading me to buy a class pet of their choice. When we built the field, we looked at lots of pros and cons of certain pets in our classrooms and they used this to form their reasons. Then we looked at how we can effectively persuade by explaining our reasons and using basic persuasive language. These kids are amazing ❀️ Now for the real question - what pet will Miss Sawaya buy? 🐰🐹🐠

We have just started persuasive writing and these kids are absolutely killing it! So so proud of them. I’m looking forward to seeing if they can transfer this into their independent writing task next week. They will be writing me a letter convincing me to buy them a class pet πŸ πŸ°πŸΉπŸ™Š

Supervisors really do not get any better than this. I have been so lucky to have spent my first 1-2 years on class with an amazing leader.

1N are enjoying learning about position in maths this week. We have been using this grid as a fun and interactive way to look at positional language. They loved standing in front of, behind, next to, to the left/right and in between their friends, especially when we all end up on the mat πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #position #year1 #maths #iteachfirst #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #aussieteachers #aussieteachertribe #iteachtoo

Ready for another term of guided reading and literacy groups - my favourite hour of the school day! I also absolutely love these boxes from @elizabethrichardsaus 🌈🌈 #guidedreading #year1 #iteachfirst #elizabethrichards #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #aussieteachers #aussieteachertribe

Everything is better in rainbow 🌈 Loved my 2018 planner from @mrsedgarsclass so I had to stay on the bandwagon in 2019!

Found this book as I was browsing through books at Kmart. Finished reading it in just over a day! An amazing read that I think many teachers can relate to. I forgot how much I missed reading books that are not picture books!

Over the past 2 weeks, we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. 1N have enjoyed making 2D and 3D shapes out of toothpicks. A good hands on approach to examining the properties of shapes! πŸ”΅πŸ”Ά

Start of term 1 vs. week 8, Term 2 from one of my struggling writers πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜ Over the past week, I have been struck with that thing called β€œteacher guilt.” The β€˜am I doing enough for my students?’ feeling. It is something that crosses my mind from time to time but last week was a little more tough than usual. Fortunately, a nice reminder came in the form of a writing work sample. We all need little reminders from time to time that no matter what, we are doing enough. Super proud of this munchkin! .

Justifying why Spring is/is not our favourite season in writing this fortnight. Honestly, at first my kids were not getting it and I thought maybe it has gone way over their little heads but today they completely blew me away. Not even half way through year 1 and some are already using complex sentences!! The last 2 are from 2 of my students who struggle with writing but did an amazing job with this task. Super proud of my little ones ☺️😍 .

I am in absolute awe of my students 😍 This fortnight we have been looking at writing a procedure, focusing specifically on verbs and adverbs. They did such a wonderful job of transferring this knowledge into their writing and were so proud of themselves! Not quite as proud as I am though!! ✏️🍢
