This is our big Tree of Awesome. It is for the awesome stuff we do at school. We are making because we don’t have enough room left on our Great Wall of Awesome.
To make it, first we had to make the tree, then we had to put bark and leaves on. We had to use lots of different paper to make the tree. We had to cut the leaves out and glue them on the tree.
The pictures on the leaves are of people, rainbows, horses, princesses, playgrounds, Darth Vader, Spiderman, smiley faces and some other stuff. Some leaves have words written on them. The leaves are all about getting along. Getting along is our You Can Do It key for this term.
When making our Tree we had to work together to get it done. To get along with each other we have to work together. We had to get along well while we working. While we were working, people were saying lots of encouraging things like “That’s really good,” and ”
“. We were reminded that saying nice things and being encouraging and supportive is an important part of getting along with each other.
What do you do to get along with people?
How do you show your artwork in your classroom?

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.
