Olympics Inspired Art Project

I have loved watching the Rio Olympics as have my class. With so much community and good sportsmanship shown, the 2016 Olympics is truly something to celebrate. There have been plenty of history making moments in many Olympic sports, enough to stop nations around the world so we don't miss them. Such has been the enthusiasm for the Olympics, I created this Olympics inspired art project for my students to do this week. It's an art project suitable for students in the Early Years right through to Middle Primary or Middle School using simple materials found in most schools.

Classroom ideas, hands on play based activities and ready to print resources to make teaching Australian coins easy.

I love teaching Australian money. It would have to be one of my favourite parts of the Australian Curriculum for Maths. 

I do believe teaching young children about money and financial matters is an important lifelong skill. 

In their second year at school, Australian children begin to learn about Australian coins - how to recognise, describe and order the different coins according to their value.

Informative Report Writing Made Easier

Our ready to print templates make information report writing easier for beginning writers.

Teaching young children different writing genres can be difficult. 

Some genres like recounts and narratives are more familiar and comfortable with but others like information reports can prove more challenging to beginning writers. 

To help assist my students, I created a visual report writing format to help support their first attempts at informative reports.
