Number Posters 0-20 (Sea Theme)

Choose the size of poster you would like and laminate them for long term use. 

I store my two smaller sizes in a zip lock bag and have the larger size on display.

 These two smaller sizes are great for sequencing and recognition as flash cards. 

These Sea Theme 0-20 Number Posters are great for displaying in your room. 

They will help with the concept of number – how to read them, how to spell them and how to order them. There are three size options for you to use. 

The smaller versions can be used as flash cards that can be put into numerical order. (40 pages)

Queen's Birthday 2016

The Queen has two birthdays - one private and the other not so private. 

In Australia we get a long weekend for this - most states take a day in June. 

I have put together two packs - the first one is a writing themed pack for Grades 2-5 and the second is for P-2. Click on the images for more information. 

Here are some throw back photos of some craft we did last year!

Father's Day

It is crazy to think that our world is shrinking because of how we communicate and work with colleagues around the world and yet we celebrate Father's Day at different times. 

Here is a photo story about how special our Dad's are! As well as our uncles and grandads.

I'm sure that some of our Dads don't want us to know some of these things..hehehe

Thanks to all the Dads for being Dads

Ordinal Numbers

Ordinals are part of our number system - we think about them in terms of races and who came first or last.  We use them for dates.

At this level students can name the relative position of an object in a small ordered collection (e.g. of toys), using ordinal numbers such as first, second, fifth, eighth, etc. They are also able to recognise and describe in which order the participants finish a game. Students will recognise that in some activities there may be a single winner, in other activities recognition may be given to those who come first, second or third. They understand that order is dependent on which object/event is identified as the starting point, so distinguish 'third from the door' from 'third from the window' etc. The contexts are spatial (e.g. lining up), temporal (e.g. the second hour of the day) and personal (e.g. I came first).
Using ordinal number words is closely tied to understanding the concepts on which objects or events are being ordered, i.e. comparing heights, comparing volumes, comparing times, comparing areas etc.
Before achieving this, students will be able to recognise whether they win or lose a game or race. They will be able to identify first and last (e.g. of a line of students) but will not be able to identify who is fourth in line or describe the position of the person who is third in line, especially when the starting point is not intuitive.
Later, students will be able to interpret and use ordinal numbers to describe more complex situations, such as “At play, I am going to be the second fairy in the third row” and “I will be the fifth person standing on the left of Ms Callea.”
These posters and cards go to fiftieth. 

They can be used for sequencing and display. 

They come in three sizes for you to use.

Reciprocal Reading

 I love reading groups - I have Guided Reading, Literature Circles and Reciprocal Reading Groups happening in our learning space.

These three strategies work with different needs in my room and each child only engages in one.

My Reciprocal Reading groups needed some attention and bringing into line with how I do my other two reading strategy groups.

So in response to this I have put together some resources to help my kids and help me to keep them on track.
I needed to support them to become independent.

So I have some posters, bookmarks, interactive notebook pages, puzzle pieces and a booklet to record in as they move through their shared book.
