Glenbrae Kids visiting Room 1

As part of our Trasition program, we visit each other once a fortnight and it is to increase children's awareness and familiarity of their next learning environment. We found this program very effective because we have kids from Glenbrae kids started at our school with confident. They consider my classroom as their own because they have been there so many times.

Welcome Back - Term 2

So good to see everyone back to school after two weeks of holidays. We are going to learn about mindfulness breathing as part of our learning for this term. After breaks, we are going to calm ourselves down by using mindful breathing. This means that I will invite all students to close their eyes, sit up straight, take deep breaths and think of something that they really like. 

We'll see how far we'll go with this and how effective will it has on students' learning.
