Let's hang out the numbers.

Yay, I found some creative mojo today and finished my new products.  Introducing my new series called 'Make a Number Line'.  For the first instalment, I've used From the Pond's winter clothes set.  The idea of this product is for students to engage in any lesson to do with number/place value and physically hang the numbers to create a number line.  I developed this idea (you guessed it) hanging out my washing. 

Here is how I created my number lines.

 
Print the cards to A3 and laminate.  I found a tall container that fits the string, pegs and cards.  Make sure that the string or rope you will use is durable and at least 3 metres long.
 
 
The photo above shows the 0-100 pack.  As a starting point you can ask the students with the 0, 50 and 100 cards to put their numbers on the number line first.  This will make it easier for the other students and then can lead into discussions about 'what half of a number is?'.
 
 
Sorry for the crammed number line - needed to squish for the photo.  Thanks to my partner too who is hiding behind the corner holding this up.  You could call students out one or two at a time to put their number on the line.  They could work individually or with a partner.  If a student puts the number in the incorrect place you or the other students could guide them to where the number should go. 
 

It's very important for students to understand number placement and this activity can be used as a great class lesson.  I've made four packs in the winter clothes set 0-20, 0-50, 0-100 and 0-1000. 
Keep reading to see how you can grab a pack for yourself!

To celebrate I'm going to be giving 3 lucky people the chance to win all 4 number line sets.  To enter click on the Rafflecopter and enter your details.  If you can't wait, click on the picture for each pack and it will take you to my TpT shop.  They are all HALF PRICE for the next 24 hours.  With school not so far away, these are a steal and a lot of fun.

Currently July

July is here already, oh boy.  I'm linking Farley for Currently, here's what I'm up to.


Listening - I love listening to Triple J.  It's not everyone's cup of tea but I dig it.  It is completely ad free and plays a lot of non commercial radio songs which I like to bop around to. 
 
Loving - I'm absolutely loving my new Instagram venture.  I've meet so many great new 'teacher fashion friends'.  I'm currently taking part in the #stylemejuly photo challenge.  You should join too.  I'm already one day in and having so much fun creating looks and seeing what others are doing too.  Click on my Instagram button to take you there.
P.S. Love that I now have an Instagram button!
 
Loving - It's been a while since I've uploaded a new product to TpT.  I really need to get some motivation and finish my latest products. 
 
Wanting - Hello deliveries, where are you???  Since starting whattheteacherwears I have found some great websites that have some great cheap fashion buys and FREE DELIVERY.  I'm waiting for two skirts, a top and two necklaces.  Check out Choies and Chicwish.
 
Needing - MORE TIME.  I can't believe the first week of holidays are nearly over......
 
4th Plans - Happy Independence Day to all of my American readers.  We obviously don't celebrate here but I'm going to the Eat.Street.Markets for dinner and can't wait. 
 
Going to head to Farley's now to see what you are currently doing.
 
 


I like to MOVE IT, MOVE IT

They're here, they're here.  Yes the holidays are here.  Just in time too, as I have a nasty cold - yuck!  In the region I work in there has been a big focus this year on presenting lessons based in the 'I do, We do, You do' John Fleming format.  Before we start our lessons we have been using warm-ups.  They are just quick activities to get the students switched on before we start teaching.   For warm ups I use flashcards, PPTs, games etc.  One of my favourite things to use are The Primary Techie's MOVE ITS.  Sometimes I also use them as a reflection or brain break too. 

MOVE ITS are a great way for kids to practice skills, burn some energy, and help them get fit. There are so many great ones to choose from covering compound words to counting.  Depending on what one you have, each slide will show a problem for your students' to answer. You can choose for your class to write answers on white boards, the worksheet included, or answer orally. As you play, the game is interrupted for physical challenges. Animated timers count to 30 seconds while fun music plays. At the end, there is a bonus "Move it Marathon". Students must do each workout for 10 seconds. 

My favourite would be Ocean Theme Working on Teen Numbers MOVE IT!
Here is the preview file from TpT.

Let's Talk about Books!

Wow, this is my third link up with Deanna's Let's Talk about Books.  I am pretty proud of myself that I have been keeping on top of my blogging.  Here in Aus, the school term is nearly over.  Only 2 more days and then 2 weeks off. 

I am so excited about my new venture that I have started.  It's an Instagram account called whattheteacherwears.  Here, I post outfit ideas suitable for teachers - check it out http://instagram.com/whattheteacherwears.

My book for this is week is one I found through the CAFE Reading forums called

The Boy Who Cried Fabulous!
 
 
The only thing Roger likes better than exploring the world around him is describing it. Roger describes most things as fabulous!
 
 
What a fabulous man in a fabulous hat.  What a fabulous tie, or perhaps a cravat?  
What a fabulous boot, what a fabulous shoe.  What a fabulous suit made of fabulous blue.  What a fabulous dog, what a fabulous cat.  What a fabulous this, what a fabulous that.  What a fabulous boy, what a fabulous girl.  What a fabulous day, what a fabulous world.
 
 
They decided that Roger needed to stop saying fabulous and gawking at everything around town. They told him that fabulous was now the one word that he was NOT allowed to use.  Instead of moping, Roger found different ways to say the same word.
What a wonderful bridge, what a beautiful boat.  What an elegant queen on a dazzling float.  What a glorious band, what a magical song.  
 
 
At the end, Roger's parents start to see how he views the world and join along.
 
This is a great story for
  • Expanding Vocab
  • Synonyms
  • Rhyme
  • The old style of the illustrations
