#teacherhack When this photo came up in my feed by @mod@modernteaching I had to do EVERYTHING to stop myself running to the shops at 10pm to get some jars!!! ⠀
Play based learning has been such an important part of my teaching rhythm, especially when teaching prep. So often on Friday afternoons I’ll pull out some craft activities and just watch the kids dive in, with big smiles and their brains ticking.⠀
Would you use these in your classroom?!! Even getting the kids to help put everything back in the jars would be a learning experience in itself!⠀

Did I HEAR someone say long weekend?!!! Commonly confused words: HEAR vs. LISTEN TO
HEAR (vb.): to sense a sound with our ears.
When we hear something, it is by chance. We are not actively paying attention or waiting for the sound.
LISTEN TO (vb.): to give your attention to a sound.
When we listen, we are actively concentrating on the sound. We can listen to a sound (a song, a speech) that is in progress.
Or, we can listen for a sound that we are expecting. This means we are quietly waiting for the sound.
