wednesday. "Coffee, Kids, and Compulsive Lists"

holy smokes! im currently on my second day of a four week prac placement at a primary school in my local area. what an adventure it's been so far! meeting the kids, goggling at the teacher who i simply cannot fault... 

ive started to find a variety of teaching resources on the net to add to my stash for future years and assignments. one of the most interesting places ive been lately is the blog "Coffee, Kids, and Compulsive Lists". I absolutely COULD NOT BELIEVE this blog is run by only a beginner teacher! she's only new to the game but boy, has she got some smashing resources. booklets, unit and lesson plans, oh dear. i could spend hours looking through them.
im also really impressed with the Teachers Pay Teachers site as well - allowing teachers to voluntarily post units and lessons for sale (or sometimes free). 

it's a whole new world.
