A $1.00 #sale

A few Aussie sellers on TpT have got together and we have a #sale on.
As Easter approaches and term break is here and we start to think about planning for next term we thought we would help out by having a little sale.

Everyone loves a sale almost as much as we love chocolate - so use the #betterthanchocolate and see what you find.

Graphing - A Word Wall

Graphing is a task that I love teaching. 
Developing a graph from data that students have collected is fun! Noisy but fun!

  

These Word Wall cards are great for displaying in your classroom. 
They have a heading, a description and an illustration. 
The size makes them great for display and still easy to see and read. 

I add the cards as we learn about the vocabulary about graphing. 


Included in this pack is a 'word splash' to do as an individual or it can be added to as a whole grade. 
The KWHL is great for capturing what students know before they start, what they want to know, how they think they will find it out and then after the unit of work they can record any new knowledge they have gained. 
This is great for sharing with parents at conferences. 





This pack is a great pack to help start you off on simple graphing. 




Happy graphing!

Harmony Day - March 21

Harmony Day is about celebrating cultural diversity. We should celebrate this every day, but this day highlights how great our country is.

We acknowledge this on the March 21st. 

Did you know that ...
  • around 45 per cent of Australians were born overseas or have at least one parent who was
  • we identify with about 300 ancestries
  • since 1945, more than 7.5 million people have migrated to Australia
  • 85 per cent of Australians agree multiculturalism has been good for Australia
  • apart from English, the most common languages spoken in Australia are Mandarin, Italian, Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Vietnamese, Tagalog/Filipino, Spanish and Hindi
  • more than 60 Indigenous languages are spoken in Australia.
(Stats taken from this link)

Australia is a great place to live because of this diversity. Harmony Day is a celebration of our cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home.
We respect community, cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging for everyone.
The colour orange represents social communication and meaningful conversations. It is about the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. 
Last year I prepared a PowerPoint to share with my grade that provided information and tasks to help make a shared understanding of this day. 

Here are examples of what is in the pack.
