A Day full of Special Visitors

Today my grade and I were lucky enough to have some visiting teachers from Tasmiana. They came to observe and talk about how Daily 5 looks and feels in our learning space. They also spent some time with Paula and her children, as she had organised the visit via her blog (Paula’s Place). I am sure Paula would agree it was lovely to share and discuss this topic with others who are excited and motivated by Daily 5. I can’t wait to see what ideas they take back and use in their own classrooms.

Being ANZAC Day tomorrow I had some lovely parents bring in war medals and a very special handmade bear, whose outfit was made from an original Army uniform. I am very passionate about educating my students about ANZAC Day and I always get a bit teary when I talk about the topic.  
One of my favourite picture books to share is ‘My Grandad Marches on ANZAC Day’.

We finished off our school day with a special and moving ANZAC Day assembly which was run by Sue (my neighbour) and our school leaders. I personally am getting up early to attend our local Dawn Service.

  1. Dear Claire. Nice tradition and example of respect for solgies and the Army veterans. It is observed in my country too. Thanks for work in the direction. The sergeant and a retired officer of the army myself.
