Our room is ‘Under Construction’ and we, Room 20, will make it great.
We are a team.....we are the RFNs - The Respectful Friendly Nerds.
We have a class meeting most mornings to touch base as a class and set the learning tone for the day.
A Bit About ... Ms Breman
Hi! My name is Carmel Breman. I have 15 years teaching experience in regional and metro schools in WA. Along with my Bachelor of Education, I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Public Relations and a Certificate in Project Management. I have also run my own small business and published educational resources (on earthworms!!). I have recently returned to the classroom and even more recently moved to Kalgoorlie with my partner. I’m looking forward to a fantastic year with the RFNs.
A Bit About ... our Education Assistants
We have two terrific Education Assistants working with us, in the the RFN room.
Mrs Hywood on Monday mornings and Mrs Wanokore Tuesday - Friday.
How we Learn
This year will be about being an independent learner, being an enquirer and taking personal responsibility. When we know ‘how’ to learn we can take advantage of learning opportunities in our everyday life, not just at school. As Dr Seuss says ....
We have brains in our head. We have feet in our shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
Good Fit Book
We learnt how to pick a good fit book.
Just like we need the right shoes
(you wouldn't play basketball in high heels, would you?) we choose a book to fit 'our' purpose and 'our' interest.
We Drop Everything And Read every day after lunch. We record our reading stamina too. (That is how long we can read before someone starts to fidget).
We are aiming for 20 minutes.
We record homework or reminders in our ...
Homework Book (diary).
We change our library books on Thursdays.
