olori_olabisi Fun day at the beach with the gang (the year group). It was "awe-mazing". We picked shells, made sand castles and brought back some lovely crafts as souvenirs.
Planning a school trip for the entire year group wasn't easy but I'm glad it was done. I am now officially "Mrs Trip or Event". I always come up with one event or another and I always see it through.
We had some volunteer parents and everyone had loads of fun.

olori_olabisi Throw back to 3D Shapes🌍🏉. We created a venn diagram using the loops and sorted our shapes according to their features.
The features in the loop says "flat face" and "curved face". And then there is the middle part that should take shapes with both flat face and curved face. You are to describe your shape and put it in the right place.
We all picked a shape and suprisinly all the children with cylinders put it in the flat face category.
I had a cylinder too, so when it was my turn, i put my cylinder in the middle.
That was all it took for my children to know they had goofed. We had agreed not to correct anyone. I didnt correct them when they did theirs. I just made sure i did mine right.
They immediately agreed with me and started talking among themselves. They corrected their mistakes and we had all the shapes in the right place.
I don't think they would ever forget now that a cylinder has flat and curved faces. It is okay to let them make mistakes and then learn from their mistakes. Remember, you are more a facilitator than a teacher in today's learning. Let the children lead their own learning. Your job is to plan a lesson where everychild is engaged.
This applies to parents too. Dont be afraid of letting your children make mistakes. It is an essential key to learning. The lesson always sticks better. They are watching you.

olori_olabisi We created cities today! It was absolutely fun! Infact my children are the bomb. The ideas some of them brought on board was just awesome. A group decided to add a bridge to their design. Another group added traffic light🚦🚜🚔. It was a group work and here are the representatives of each group doing a presentation of their cities. And by the way I had a lesson observation today and the observers chose this lesson. I got straight "outstandings" in questioning, pacing, marking, pupil activity, plenary etc.
However one of my observers thought the group work was awesome but i should not have let the children decide who does what and who would present for their group. She thought i should have done the division of labour and chose a leader. Hmmmm

The second observer disagreed and thought it was fantastic the way i let the children decide themselves. She thought team work was excellent and all the children were engaged.
Well, i took both points. I was already happy with all the other comments i couldn't even care about whether they agreed on that or not . Atleast they both agreed it was an outstanding lesson.
So drop a comment and let me know what you think i should have done. Thank you!

olori_olabisi Wheww!!! Me and my 7days a week job. Lol. I am just leaving work now(got there late ni o), couldnt go yesterday. These things need preparation and someone has to do it. That person is ME! My children would be learning about big cities and would be creating their own city. Some would create cities during the day and others at night. Hence the moon and stars. I made a sample of the daytime. Really excited about this week. I promise to carry you along.

olori_olabisi Messages like this just gladens my heart. Frankly speaking, today isn't one of my best days. I came to work feeling really weak. I would not have come at all but for the children. I came and I'm glad i did. ( I would probably still come on Saturday and Sunday) lol. I still feel sick but the fuel of passion is driving me. I told my kids i dont feel well and don't want to be stressed.
We have had fun as always and this message just blew the energy level wayyyy up.
Please feel free to stick to your decision to be a teacher. We need more people in the job who aren't there because they have nothing else to do.
Go out and be the best teacher you can be. Have all the fun doing it and make them jealous. Make them wonder, make them wish they had your job.

olori_olabisi It was a great day today. We had fun making our Timbuktu scrolls. Since Timbuktu is popular for its library, we decided to add to its collection.
The children drew in the scroll and wrote fun facts about Timbuktu.

olori_olabisi Wanted to post this pic and tried this filter. It looks as if i am wearing a dark lipstick (i'm actually wearing a red lipstick ). It doesnt look bad at all. So i would be launching some dark lippy soon.

olori_olabisi One of the most effective uses of a teacher's time is in giving good feedback which should be specific and encouraging. _ Sutton Trust May 2011
If marking isn't effective and doesn't provide feedback then there is no point doing it. When you mark, children should be given time to read feedback and act on it. Feedback is one of the components of formative assessment that is dependent on the existence of each other to be successful. (that is; yours and the pupils' )
Pupils deserve to have feedback from their teacher on how to improve their learning. It is their entitlement.

olori_olabisi So I went to work today to prepare these boards. Two of them in preparation for what we would be learning this week (continents and number bonds). The third is to display my lovelies' work. They worked so hard on it and it would be a shame if they come on Monday and it's not displayed. They would just fry me alive.
Considering we had to do the seaside work twice. The first one was very confusing as we didnt include the sky. Everyone thought the fish was flying. So we repeated the activity and this time we added the sky and clouds.
It came out really nice.
I met someone who accused teachers of just printing pictures off the internet and not making their own craft. Well i cant speak for others but i can categorically say i dont belong to that category of teachers. I like to make, i love displays and it's just annoying i can only blow a pic into A3 at most. Imagine i put a picture of a coconut treeand the sun🌞🌞 at the seaside instead of making one.
I love my job and i definitely love this part of my job very much. 🏿

olori_olabisi Yes! You guessed right, we learnt about measurements. It was very exciting using standard and non-standard units of measurements. I had fun facilitating and photographing. #teachersofinstagram #teacherspayteachers #instagramteachers #ilovemyjob #educator #measurements #edupreneur #excellentsupport #grangeschool 3w
