Telling the Time in a Digital World

Mathematics: Time

Telling the time is an area which some students pick up very easily and others struggle. I can remember as a kid being so excited when Mum agreed to buy me my first ever watch - it was a Little Mermaid / Ariel watch with water in the face and a starfish that floated. There was a proviso though put on this item

First Week Ideas: Part 1

Sorting through the endless boxes of school resources I have been thinking a lot about the activities that I do in the first week with students. It is the time that you spend getting to know the students and get a feel about the dynamics the class may have as a whole. Like most teachers I do many activities so I think it is best to look at them one at a time.

Organisation

Organising the classroom is always a tough task as it depends on how much (or little) space you have. Of course, being organised with handouts and diaries is also something I find I need to stay on top of - so I did what any savvy teacher would do - I looked on Pinterest for ideas!

The Beginning

I am finally taking steps into the world of blogs. I have of course come across others in the past few years while searching for inspiration, but I haven't actually delved into it myself...until now.
