What’s Your Sentence?

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan love exchanging teaching ideas with other educators around the world.

Over the holidays they came across an idea from their Twitter/blogging buddy, Joan Young, which they used in their classroom on the first day of school.

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan invited all the students to think about the year ahead and come up with their “sentence”. This is a phrase that defines how they want to be remembered this year.

It’s important to think about your goals and take action to become the person you want to be!

We displayed our sentences to share our ambitions with others!

Here are some 4KM and 4KJ students sharing their sentences.

Have you ever set yourself a goal? We’d love to hear about it.

A New School Year Begins!

Today is the first day of the 2013 school year at Leopold Primary School in Victoria, Australia.

After nearly six weeks of summer holidays, Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan are excited to welcome the 54 new 4KM and 4KJ students. Some of these students were in 2KM or 2KJ in 2011!

We have a lot to look forward to this year including our new 1:1 netbook program, Bike Ed and of course our camp to Maldon.

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan are certain all the students will learn a lot in 2013 and enjoy being part of our wonderful classroom community.

We had a very warm summer in Leopold and we look forward to hearing how all the students spent their holidays.

Mrs Morris and her husband, Nate, enjoyed Christmas with Mrs Morris’s family. They also spent some time at Indented Head where Nate’s parents rented a holiday house. Mrs Morris and Nate enjoyed a holiday to the historic town of Beechworth and our nation’s capital, Canberra.

Miss Jordan travelled back to her family’s home in Pomonal (near Halls Gap) for her Christmas celebrations. In January she painted her house and she also enjoyed seeing friends, exercising, going shopping, cooking and reading. Miss Jordan loved meeting her family’s chocolate Labrador puppy, Mocha.

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan also spent a lot of time in the holidays preparing for Technify Your Teaching in 2013. This was a professional development day held at Leopold Primary School on January 24th. We had 60 teachers attend from all over Victoria to learn about how to use technology in their classrooms.
