We're Stuck CBCA Shortlist Book Resources & More!

We have had lots of teachers ask us for resources for the CBCA shortlisted book "We're Stuck" so in this week's newsletter we have resources for that and "Good Bye House, Hello House". This week's blog is all about gamifying measurement to make it fun for you and your students.

We have some social media news around Frugal Fred and a competition to see who can guess the new book related cross-curricular unit of work coming next week. The first person to email me the book title and author will win themselves a 1 year Teaching Units and Posters Membership or if already a member a copy of Frugal Fred.

This week's blog is from Shane and outlines a creative fun way to gamify your Maths teaching. This is a cross between tag and measuring interesting spaces. It is a very unique lesson which I am sure your students will love. Click on the image below to read the whole article on the Learn From Play site.

As promised the resources for "We're Stuck" are here. I also thought that with Book Week just around the corner I would also release the resources for "Good Bye House, Hello House". Both these books are shortlisted to be the 2020 Book of the Year for Early Childhood so the activities are geared towards students in Pre-School, Kindergarten and Year 1.

We're Stuck has a nice message about the peacefulness found in slowing down and getting to know the people around us rather than always being is a rush. Good Bye House, Hello House is about moving, possessions and belonging. Click on either image below to access the FREE resources for these books.

I received the pictures below from one of our Frugal Fred competition winners, Wing, to show me how much her students were enjoying the book. I was also made aware of the uncanny resemblance between Frugal Fred and our local library manager Jim. It must be something to do with people who love libraries and good books!

Just in case you missed last week's newsletter dedicated to our new Film School this is the latest Premium offering from Learn From Play. It is a great way to gamify English and makes teaching multimodal story telling easy for you and fun for your students. You may want to include this for your Term 4 activities when students are often pulled out of their lessons for end of year showcases or use this to allow students to create end of year concert pieces that can be shared with the wider school community in a Covid friendly manner

Using the images below see if you can work out which classic children's book we will be releasing activities for next week. The first person to email me the correct book title and author will receive a year's FREE Teaching Units and Posters Membership or if they are already a member a copy of Frugal Fred. It is super easy so be quick. Stay tuned next week to see the resources, the answer and who won the FREE membership.

As always if you have any questions, feedback or content suggestions for areas of the curriculum that you would
like to see gamified send me an email. In the mean time, please help us grow our Learn From Play teaching community by sharing the site with your colleagues so everyone can benefit.
