CD Flamingos 

Say hello to today’s flamingos! Tomorrow we will be making caiman. I’m pretty excited about that. The Black Caiman is the top predator in the Amazon Rainforest. Such a busy week and it is only Tuesday. A big shout out to the lovely Tahlia who helped me glue the kids work in their scrap books. Not sure how but I confused myself and needed help to work out which page I had missed. So grateful to have such a beautiful, patient volunteer in our room. As always thank you Kami – couldn’t do my job without your tireless efforts. Get excited for ‘Snake Cakes’ and snappy caiman tomorrow! #specialeducation #teacherlife #chloesclassroom #anorchidsview #grateful💖 


Did you know that flamingos can be found in the Amazon? I was super excited to learn this because it meant that my class could make pretty pink flamingos to decorate our classroom. It was a very busy day in our room but we had an absolute ball. Very grateful to have Suzie and Kami keeping everything running smoothly. Love our little class fam bam – looking forward to seeing our fourth fam member Tahlia tomorrow 💕 #anorchidsview #chloesclassroom #flamingo #grateful💖 Sone more flamingos.. maybe I got a little bit excited? #flamingo #chloesclassroom #anorchidsview
