Damper and Reminders

DSC00135Tanysha’s on a field trip today to a park.  She told me yesterday that she’ll be off to be in touch with “nature”.  The above handout was a reminder that she came home with. Isn’t it cute? Of course as a good mama everything was checked off!!

I would’ve loved to have gone with her but I had another commitment – to help Renee’s class celebrate Australia Day.  Her teacher is an “Ozzie” and so planned an alternative learning day.  Making damper, throwing boomerangs and singing Waltzing Matilda.  Of course all these activities integrated with their subjects.  Maths required for making the damper, science for boomerang throwing and of course singing for arts!!

I love it when classroom learning is made interesting!!

here are some pictures!

We have a boomerang, and always had the hardest time finding the right place to throw it! Happy Australia Day!
