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!

I had a quick flick through Up2Scrap at the bookstore the other day, just looking for names I recognised ;-) Saw your kids' pages, they're great!! Definitely have their Mum's talent :-)

Sounds like your school is growing like ours ... they have just opened their 9th new entrant class and Tyler (who starts next term) won't even get into that one as it will be full by then! Lots of 5 year olds around at the moment, it seems. Good luck with the new job, it sounds like it will be fun. Term 4 is always more relaxed anyway (at least it seems that way to the parents, LOL).

I saw your girls' l/o in there - very cool. I remember how Colin felt when his l/o appeared in one of the Aus magazines

Congrats to your girls! :)

Don't remember too much about my first classroom, except the teacher had made a name tag for me. :)

I don't remember anything about my new entrance class except my teacher was Hungarian and called us "My Dahlinks!)

Oh I saw that a few weeks ago and saw teh layout, very cool. Thats exciting news about the new role, am so excited for you. Eeeeks having problems remembering that far back lol. However from more recent times as a student teacher, cushions and big ones at that and a book corner. Washing lines going across the class with the childrens work on it.

A games corner, with board games and alphabet games and math games etc etc.
