Monet

Room 4 have completed their first Monet inspired artworks… seems very odd Monet and the Amazon.. let me explain the connection. There are giant lily pads in Amazonian lagoons. They’re so big that 2m caiman can rest on them without the lily pad sinking. Pretty awesome! I’m grateful to have access to interesting information that I can share with my students. #anorchidsview #monet #chloesclassroom #schoollife #teacherlife #specialeducation #gratefulšŸ’–

Rainforests and Snakes

Making rainforests today.. I think they turned out beautifully šŸ˜Š so much green šŸ’š very busy day in the classroom. Thank you Miss Tahlia for helping us paint today šŸ’•#specialeducation #chloesclassroom #teacherlife #specialeducation  and slithering snakes..

CD FlamingosĀ 

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 #gratefulšŸ’– 

Flamingos

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 šŸ’• #anorchidsview #chloesclassroom #flamingo #gratefulšŸ’– Sone more flamingos.. maybe I got a little bit excited? #flamingo #chloesclassroom #anorchidsview 

Frogs and Toadstools

What a busy day! We made the cutest frogs and toadstool cupcakes. You know that you’re going a bit ‘dotty’ when you start to look like a frog šŸ˜³! #anorchidsview #chloesclassroom #toadstool #frog 


The cupcakes are vanilla with red icing and white choc buds šŸ’•

Rainforest Flowers

Celery stamping! You have to love special education. Tasty and pretty šŸ‘ŒšŸ»#specialeducation #teacherlife #


Had to giggle when one of my students tried to eat it! The design ended up looking very pretty – ‘rainforest flowers’. We tried a few other stampers today too – not edible though.
