Our alphabet beads are something we have been playing with almost everyday lately! 🌈 We use them to spell our names, match up lowercase and uppercase letters, make 'necklaces' and practice our patterning 🌈 Practicing our patterning skills is probably the most favourite way they are being used at the moment - a great reminder that literacy resources can also be used for numeracy experiences! 🌈 Chunky Alphabet Beads from @modernteaching 🌈 #learningthroughplay #earlyliteracy #earlynumeracy #gifted

I was able to get into my new school on Thursday for the first time. It's brand new and there is still lots of work to be done before we open. Here is a photo of my cozy reading corner. Just missing some books! They must be in one of my 25 boxes! 😬

Can you spell your name? 🌈 We love using tactile materials for literacy experiences in our kindergarten classroom as children learn best through hands on activities! 🌈 I love how the uppercase and lowercase bricks are different colours to reinforce that names need to start with a capital letter 🌈 Capital Letters Educational Bricks and Lowercase Letters Educational Bricks from @theplayroomwa 🌈 #learningthroughplay #earlyliteracy #handsonlearning #gifted

Today we said goodbye to our cheeky elf but that wasn't the saddest goodbye of the day. Singing our goodbye song to each other this afternoon for the last time as a class was a bit of a tear jerker!! I've loved this class so much this year and am sad to see them go. 😭😭😭

This month’s theme over @kidlitpicks book club is Embracing Our Differences. Books πŸ“šare such a wonderful way to learn about and celebrate our differences and encourage inclusive behaviours. Our first pick for this wonderful theme is WHOEVER YOU ARE by Mem Fox πŸ’›. No matter where you're from, no matter how you look or what language you speak, we all love the same, laugh the same, cry the same and feel pain the same. An excellent reminder that smiles and hearts are the same "wherever they are, wherever you are, wherever we are, all over the world". Diversity is what makes this world a beautiful place 🌎❀. Let’s embrace and celebrate our differences πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ». What’s your favourite book that celebrates diversity?

From @teaching.with.intention -  EJ Albin, one of the teachers in our classroom, wrote a children's book, "Whales Don't Eat Bacon". We've read the story with the children in the past, and today C. 4 years old, came in with his own version of "Whales Don't Eat Bacon" that he wrote at home! In this sweet moment EJ asked, "Can I read it?!" to which C. proudly responded, "No. I will read it TO you."

My fellow followers know from my feed that I ❀ Monkeys!!! So today is such an exciting day for me because it's #nationalmonkeyday πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š
And what better way to celebrate than with  two new books from the library!!! πŸ’
(The way Lulu and I celebrate everyday by the way!) .

Go Go Gorillas by Patrick Wensink and illustrated by Nate Wragg is a funny bedtime story featuring gorillas and apes and the secrets of the jungle at night!!! This book probably will not settle your little one down for the night, but they will definately have a good time reading about the nightly jungle shinanagins!!! πŸŽ΅πŸŽΆπŸ’
I especially love Baby because...he picks records of reggae and funk plus he's old school so he does the robot!😁 (He is also so darn cute with his purple fur and diaper!) .

Chimpanzees for Tea! By Jo Empson is more of a subtle bedtime story.  The repitition of this story reminds me of the classic Sesame Street sketch of the little girl whose mother sends her to the store for...a loaf of bread, a stick of butter, and a container of milk (I think that is the correct order!) Such a fun read!!!! 🐡So pull out your favorite monkey books today for some romping good fun!!! #ilovemonkeys

|| ACTS OF KINDNESS || No act of kindness, however small, is EVER wasted!! This year I'm deciding to get Oli involved in spreading kindness ❀️ and understanding that Christmas πŸŽ„ is not just about gifts 🎁 but about familyπŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦, happiness and the spirit of giving without the thought of getting! So I have created 12 "Acts of Kindness Sticks" for Oli to enjoy and explore each day with us before writing his letter to Santa. πŸŽ… Its amazing how quickly children grow so for me, these acts of kindness sticks are important! It allows Oli to explore the sweet feeling of spontaneous gestures of goodwill towards someone! 
I wanted to share with you all this cute print out, so keep your eyes peeled tomorrow as I will be uploading this freebie on my site! 😁

The kids’ village school has just over 50 kids in. It’s something I really like about living in the country. And this morning I saw them reading together and apparently they are officially reading buddies! Aww... #siblings #villagelife #smallschool #countrylife #earlyliteracy #mumblogger
So my favourite elf trick of all has been one given to me by my incredibly creative friend and colleague @elo12e - you get someone to put the @classdojo app on their phone (my sister was our lucky helper) and they give random dojo points out throughout the day and the kids are all "BUT IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!" and "IT'S MAGIC!" πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸŒŸI obviously knew what was going on and even I got excited by the random pinging especially when I was on the other side of the room! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #elfontheshelf #elfontheclassroomshelf

There are heaps of details in the illustrations and a hole in the page to allow you to play peepo / peek a boo.  The catchy rhymes keep the story moving along and shows a working class family enjoying normal daily routines in post war Britain.

This is a constant in top 10 lists of books for babies.

While deciding which toys to ask Santa for, be sure to request books for you little ones. Children who are read to have a higher rate of later academic success. #readingmatters #earlyliteracy #earlychildhoodeducation #preschool #books

This is one example when I use the 'tortoise, giraffe and monkey' letter terms (in case if you wonder what am I referring to, yesterday I shared the posters. 😊😊) .
.
Saying things like:
.
.
"Look, the first letter is a giraffe letter. That is the first clue. 😊" .
.
made him easy to understand and think which word goes to which box. .

Try it! It's fun! 😍

Up until now with our story workshop, for the writing portion, we have been focused on illustrations and labelling. An interest in writing has naturally taken root and today we talked about how to write sentences. Here is A's very first try! I'm so proud of how much she has accomplished! Her story is about a character named Rock who gets lost in the forest. There is magic in pictures and in words (coincidentally, that's an awesome book). #inpicturesandinwords #workshop #writersworkshop #storyworkshop #learners #rigour #inspired #illustrate #write #grade1writing #proundteacher #earlyliteracy #literacy #proudstudent #iteachfirst #iteach #saskeyl

Journal writing with a preschool is very interesting... πŸ˜‰βœοΈπŸ““βœοΈSome entries are simple (1-2 line story), while some are quite elaborate (swipe to read them). Sometimes she draws first then I write her story verbatim. Other times she tells me the story first, and then she creates the pictures. 
I look forward to many more stories created by my dearest Alia the story teller. 😘 See my previous post about how we do this.
