Our New Cubby

Room 24 would like to thank Nicholas and his family for donating their cubby to our unit. There will be three classes very happy to use it! We send a very BIG thank you to Martin for coming in and putting the cubby back together!

Our Buddies

Since the beginning of the year we have been spending time each week with our Buddies from Mr. Steven’s class.

We’ve been reading with them and doing some writing activities with them.

This afternoon our buddies helped us to make origami bookmarks.

We used origami paper and made lots of interesting animals and creatures.

These photos show us working co-operatively with our buddies and the fantastic bookmarks we made.

Book Boxes

We have been working on our Stamina as we read our books to ourselves each morning. We are able to read quietly, stay in one spot and remain focussed on our books for quite a long time.

This morning we were very excited because Mrs. K spoke to us about Book Boxes. We have our own boxes and into them we need to put good fit books so that we are able to continue with our great reading.

We got to go book shopping! We put all our books on the tables and we went round and chose books to put in our boxes. It was such fun! Now when we Read To Self and Read To Someone we will have lots of books in our boxes to read.

Writing Our Numerals

This week we have focussed on writing our numerals round the right way.

Some of us write them back to front! If you have a spare moment it would be fantastic if you watch your child write the numbers and check the formation.

Here is a lovely You Tube clip to help the children with numeral writing. Just click on the link.

Room 24 at Craigburn Primary School

Welcome to everyone visiting our blog. We are a class of new Year Ones and our teacher is Mrs. Kolenberg. There are 25 children in our class and we only started back at school from our holidays on Tuesday. Craigburn is a school in the foothills of Adelaide. We have lots of trees and are lucky enough to have many birds and koalas visiting. This term will be 11 weeks long. It’s Summer right now and we have had some hot days above 40 degrees Celsius. We are going to learn about our body systems and keeping ourselves healthy as well as working together co-operatively.

Please visit our blog often to catch up with our learning.

Mrs. K has put together a video using Animoto about our school and our classroom.

Mrs. K’s Hopes for 2014

The beginning of a new year is always filled with excitement, anticipation and sometimes even nerves… for the children, their parents and of course, me!

I made this Storybird to share my thoughts and hopes for the 2014 school year. I hope you find time to view it, think about it and provide your feedback via a comment.

 I’m looking forward to a great year. It is sure to be very exciting!

We Are Elves

Well, it’s that time of year when Father Christmas needs all the help he can get. We decided to get organised and become elves. We think you will find this quite funny!
Can you see yourself?

Warning! They will all load at the same time so you will have to quickly pause them until you are ready.

Many thanks to Officemax for offering this!
