Some initial planning with her mentor Gary

Karen's reflection on her initial work with Gary, her mentor:

At our very first meeting Gary and I had decided to work on the environmental aspect.

We had already worked on the unit, and started to formalise it in relation to the syllabus.

A big task, but now, hopefully, complete, but needing feedback. I could probably have made it smaller, but wanted it to be linked with, but separate from, the units in other KLAs.

I have placed an article in the Newsletter asking for parents and community members to help with Maths groups. In the meantime I asked Annie May and Marcia if they could give us a hand, and they agreed. They will be working in the classroom on Mondays and Tuesdays. Another mother has now offered to come and help too. Three community helpers! WOW!

With six children in Stage 2, that is a great ratio of helpers.
