The All-Star Shop

The All-Stars were busy setting up a shop during the last couple of weeks of Term 3. Everyone was busily raiding the recycling home at home for cartons, boxes, bags and jars and there is now quite a lot of stock on our shelves.

Students have worked in teams to make signs for the store and lots of pretend food to sell.  The All-Stars have had lots of fun playing shops and buying food to use with the kitchen set. We are looking forward to lots more shopping in Term Four.

A reflection of our week – 17 June 2013

It has been a very busy week in the Prep-One room.  Here are some reflections on our week…

In our writing we have been planning a story book.  This makes some of us feel happy because we like writing.  Some of us are excited to make a book because now we now know how to tell a story we can tell lots more.

We finished our heart maps, which most of us really enjoyed making.   They show what we love.  We are going to put these on the Great Wall of Awesome and use them to get ideas for our writing.

Molly, Rosie and Natalie have been selling rocks this week.  Some people put on funny shows to get more people to buy rocks.  All the money goes to the Parent’s Club and the guide Dogs.  They raised a huge $44!

In Art we have been painting without paintbrushes.  We have been using palette knives, pipettes and drinking straws and things from nature.  It has been fun and exciting because we didn’t know we could paint without paintbrushes.  Most of us love painting with a palette knife.  We feel very creative.

In French we have been talking about to say ‘hello’ goodbye’ and ‘how are you feeling?’ in French.  We are also learning how to introduce ourselves and where we live.  French makes us excited because it is really fun.

Almost all the All-Stars really enjoyed this week.

What did you enjoy most this week at school?

Tell us one thing you are really proud of achieving this week.

Prep One All-Stars join the Great Wall of Awesome!

This term Prep One joined the Great Wall of Awesome – an online space where classes from different schools share and celebrate their awesomeness.  First we read a story called ‘The Great Wall of Awesome’ about a class that had a drab, dull wall in their classroom and they brightened it up with examples of their awesomeness.  We also had a look at  pages from other classes – there is some incredibly awesome learning happening out there!

The All-Stars are very excited about sharing their awesomeness with the world – they had lots of suggestions for what we put could post on our page.  We brainstormed some of the things we could include – you can see it below.  We decided that rainbows and cakes and Trash Packs, although nice things and fun things, were not really great examples of our awesomeness.  Instead we talked about how we might post work we have been doing and photos of some of the awesome things we get up to in and out of our classroom.

Stay tuned to our blog AND our Great Wall of Awesome to keep track of the awesome learning happening in our class.  You can see our page at this address:  https://thegreatwallofawesome.squarespace.com/p1-mps

What do you think we should put on our Great Wall of Awesome?

If you had a Great Wall of Awesome all your own, what would you put on it?
