8 things to do this school holidays

Today I was talking to my sister, who is also a teacher. We were going some jobs together when she said "It is the first day of holidays and I am already bored... I've got stuff to do but I don't want to do them'. To myself, I thought oh my... I thought I was the only one who was thinking that! So here are 10 things (in no particular order) that we teachers need to do over the holidays.

Book Study: Already Ready Chapter 5

As part of being part of the early educations network in my area, I am part of a year long study on bookmaking in childcare through to Year 1. For this I had to read this book. Each post will discuss my reflections. Feel free to comment with any feedback, things I could try in my classroom or your experiences with teaching writing.

What is in my Jolly Grammar books?

Jolly what???
Jolly Phonics is an engaging and child centred approach to teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. The program has 42 letter sounds with actions for each (for more information, visit the Jolly Phonics website). In Year 1 if students are confident at phonics including blending and segmenting, students move onto the Jolly Grammar 1 program which involves a weekly spelling and grammar rule.
