New Entrant Teacher

Really enjoying having my own classroom rather than teaching in a few each day - even if they were daily teaching times in the rooms, there's something about at least having a cupboard to keep my stuff in! My blogging for fun has been really useful with my class blog and as my class grows it will be fantastic to keep parents/whanau up to date and informed, am hoping the children in the class can do some of our videoing and photography for it so it's a real ICT experience for them too.

Have some scrap creating to do this weekend - will be nice to take a break from school stuff and get paper everywhere. A bit of nook & pantry in there too....loved this stuff from the sneaks and cool to have it to play with for the ezine!

Queenstown Scrapretreat Workshops and Day registrations are all go over there!

Up2Scrap and change of roles at work

Picked up this issue at Whitcoulls yesterday - cool comp if you buy it at Whitcoulls at the moment too...
My girls have a page each in this issue, they loved seeing their layouts about dad in print when I showed it to them last night. Thanks Up2Scrap :-)

I signed the papers yesterday at work to take on a 'roll growth' new entrant class till the end of this school year, start in a week's time! Very exciting and daunting, not much time to get organised...have two school visits this week with some of my class coming in.

What do you remember from your new entrant class?

I especially remember 'Where the Wild things are' by Maurice Sendak because my teacher (Miss Potvine) did a corner of the room up like the land of the wild things...hanging vines and all!
