Art or destruction of property? Graffiti can be seen as a negative thing but i find it beautiful in the right places. After reading the wonderful blog post about graffiti over at 30 summers i wanted to share some of the other street art that i have found in and around Melbourne and other places i have visited in the world. So here are some of my discoveries….. enjoy.

Photography Spotlight #6 Butterflies

Photography Spotlight #6 Butterflies
While i was in Australia i went up to Kuranda and visited the Butterfly sanctuary. It was a great place to practise photographing butterflies as there were so many, all over the place. I got some great pictures and this is my Favourite one. I love the contrast between the red of the butterfly and the wooden bench.

Following on from the list of things i like i wanted to share some things i have learnt teaching reading across three different countries.

England – where i trained, taught and learnt so much in my first two years of teaching.

Australia – where i gained my passion for teaching again and learnt a whole new style of teaching.

New Zealand – where i’m starting to see the importance of some basics i’ve taken for granted. Continue reading “Things i have learnt teaching reading”

Photography Spotlight – Doors

Photography Spotlight – Doors

I find doors very intriguing, they ask lots of questions.

What’s behind me? Where do i go? Am i locked? Who lives in a house with this style of door?

I think it’s the teacher in me always questionng and encouraging ideas from the smallest seeds. Pictures of doors are a great tool for that and i often give children a picture of a door to think about what is on the other side.

Here are some of my favourite doors i’ve found.

How to find inspiration, ideas and wonderful reading books

As a Relief teacher the first thing i do when i have organised my day, and know what the schedule and planning is, is to look around. I don’t mean just look at the classroom. I mean really look.

Look at the books on the book shelf, the teachers desk, the walls, thumb through the children’s books and anything you can get your hands on (maintaining some privacy of course).

Here are some are some of the places i have found great ideas and inspiration from  Continue reading “How to find inspiration, ideas and wonderful reading books”
