    Hey Everyone

    I have noticed over the years that a lot of junior school teachers teach Maths after lunch. I would prefer to teach Reading, Writing and Maths before lunch, how are other teachers managing this? 

    TIA

    Hey Pania

    My modelling book question was very general because I am interested to find out how teachers are using modelling books in the junior rooms as often the little ones are unable to refer back to them after the lesson. Thanks for your reply, hopefully some others can add to the discussion.

    Hi everyone

    I have been wondering if we could share our thoughts around using modelling books to share learning intentions in the NE classroom.

    Been wondering how we can help juniors reflect on their learning and how we can make this visible in our rooms?

    I use our classroom blog to record what has been happening in our classroom.  Oral language underpins all literacy and numeracy learning and I encourage the parents to use the blog to start oral language discussions at home about what has been happening at school especially in topic. 
    I also put any songs, poems etc that we have been learning at school so children can share them with their parents/caregivers/grandparents etc
    This term I have had to ask parent to resign a permission form to allow me to post their child's art work, written work and photos. This is new for us as we used to just have a form that required just one signature to allow us to post information on our blog. Now I have to ask for permission for all areas.
    I used to be disappointed that very few parents were commenting but I see it very differently now, parents have told me they do read the posts but they do not see the need to leave a comment.
    I inform the other teachers in our school when I post on our blog and sometimes other teachers encourage the children in their classrooms to leave us comments, it does give other children in our school a purpose for writing which I think is great.
    I really enjoy looking at other teacher's blogs as I am the only teacher in our school using one and I learn so much from looking at what other schools are doing. 

    Thanks for sharing all these great ideas.

    Could teachers please share what elearning tools they are using in their Year 0/1 classrooms. It would be great to hear how they manage these tools in their rooms when most of the children are still at the pre-reading stage.

    Thanks Barbara, after reading your post I realised I probably gave up too soon, I didn't think about talking them through a few basic rules. I will start again tomorrow and try to have a bit more patience. Smile

    Hey everyone

    Well the group is slowly growing in size.  I have been trialling using the paint programme with my NE class however the children are having a few problems using the programme independently.  Wondering if anyone has any suggestions of what I could do to get this up and running in my room or maybe someone knows of an easier programme we could try.
