So my first day of school began with a students' technicolour yawn in the hall way; followed by another student and his 'John McEnroe' tantrum. Mmmmm .... welcome to the world of teaching! But although tired and hankering for a sleep-in past 5:05am (yep, school starts before the sparrows ......), Nath and I have both made positive starts and amongst the busyness, we feel a real sense of peace and joy.
Last blog, I promised you less talk and more pictures; so I thought I'd let my 'u bewt' samsung camera tell the rest of the story. Please note that I am amateur in the whole classroom set-up thing, but i thought I'd show you a snapshot of my efforts.
So welcome to my grade two classroom! Come and have a look around ....
|The grand entrance|
|The time consuming book display|
|Gotta love classroom monitors|
|The reading corner|
|Our PYP 'Essential Agreement'|
|and then there' s every teacher's power tool - the behaviour scheme!|
Not a classroom favourite THAT'S for sure.
