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?

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?
