Counting By 5

I was in a year 1 classroom yesterday and saw this great idea to practice counting by 5 from another teacher. She doesn't have a blog so she has agreed to let me share it with you.
There are some very talented teachers at my school. A big thank you for sharing.
It is a very easy activity to recreate but if you were interested I could post the worksheet.
Just leave me comment.

                                                            ENJOY THE WEEKEND!

Easter Bunny Glyph

I love Easter time and all the cute pictures that go with it... bunnies chickens, flowers, eggs...
We have been busy doing our Easter Bunny Glyph and other Easter goodies.

I think our bunnies look SO cute!

Then we completed our Easter Bunny Glyph book.

We collected our data about the Easter Bunnies.

We analysed our data and wrote about it.

We labeled the Easter Bunny.

This is a great little story to read for Easter.

We did text to self connections and the children wrote what they would do if they were the Easter Bunny.

We also did a cute Easter Bunny Craftivty. 

 If you would like these fun activities for your little ones you can get them and more in my Easter Fun pack available at TPT HERE.

Grandparents Are Special

Every year we celebrate Senior Citizens' Week by having  Grandparents' Day at our school. Grandparents are so special and are an important part of our children's lives. My Grandmother lived far away from me when I was growing up but I remember staying at my 'Nana's' every school holidays. She lived at the bottom of a mountain and I loved to climb that mountain! I remember her little cottage with many rooms and most of all her big bed that I needed help to get up on to it. I remember having no TV but I loved her stories. The woodfire stove and her cooking! She was very special. There will always be a special place in my heart for my Grandmother. They are fond memories that I will never forget.


 Grandparents are invited to come to our school and we entertain them with singing, dancing, stories as well as giving Grandparents an opportunity to visit the classrooms and see all the wonderful work that the children have been doing. They can stay for a Devonshire tea or have a picnic lunch with their treasured ones.
The children did some craft activities of Grandparents and we talked about why Grandparents are special and wrote stories.

                                     Don't you love this display in another classroom.

                           I took  photos of some of the special Grandparents in my classroom.
                           It was a wonderful day and thank you for coming.
                           I know it will be a special memory for everyone.
