My weekend with Sarah

Dear Diary,

Today I came home with Sarah and she introduced me to her dad and her stepmum Lizzie,(short for Elizabeth) I sat on the blanket and read Pig the Pug then she introduced me to her baby brother Darcy who is almost 5 months old. He is so cute!

Sincerely, Blog Dog

Dear Diary,

Today was a big day! Sarah took me to school and I stayed in my bag reading. Sarah’s mum picked us up from school then we drove to pick up Jas, her big sister from high school. We stayed home, I watched the TV and took a long nap. Sarah tucked me in and read my fav book. We have a big day tomorrow so I need a big sleep. We’re going to the beach tomorrow.

Goodnight! Sweet dreams & lots of hugs from Blog Dog

Dear Diary,

I went to the beach with Sarah, Angelique and Annabelle. We had lots of fun swimming and building sandcastles. Today is my last day with Sarah before I go back to Mrs Riding.

Lots of hugs, Blog dog, BD

WRAD wrap

We had an awesome day as we celebrated WRAD. The whole school stopped as one at 11am and celebrated the joy of reading by having a great story read to them.

Mrs Johnson read Stories from our street by Richard Tullock to 3J.

An inspirational local deaf woman, Pam Wells, shared Little owl by Phillip Gwynne with K/6D and then they had fun creating some art work.

Miss Wright read The book with no pictures by B.J.Novak to 2W and then everyone shared a book either from home or from the class library.

Mrs Robinson read Shaun Tan’s Rules of Summer before starting Alice’s adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll to 3/4P. Students also had a chance to choose their own book to read.

These super star students were spotted in our library.

Happy WRAD everyone!

It’s Read Aloud Day everyday for these beautiful babes.

Mrs Brown’s daughter Nicole and her grandson Ari love reading together before bedtime. Mrs Brown told me Ari has an amazing library already. The Cranky Bear is among his favourites.

Mrs Robinson and Georgie have fun reading together. Angelina Ballerina and a cuddle before bed. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Hudson loves being read to. Miss Wright says it’s his favourite thing to do. He just LOVES books!

Mrs Bull and Maxi enjoy a story too.

Are you ready for WRAD? 5/6P and Miss Penburthy are all set. I wonder what great book they will be sharing?

Everyone loves having a great story read to them. Why don’t you surprise someone special and read to them today. I’d love to hear from you.

My weekend with Chloe

Dear Diary,

Today I went home with Chloe Mc. We had so many adventures just on the first day! I can’t wait to spend the weekend with her. When we got home I chilled on her bed and watched her move her fingers fast as she did some sewing. I also met her friend Larah, she is really nice! Then at about 5.15 we walked over to the park just across the road from her house. Chloe’s at her mums at the moment and is going to her dads tomorrow. I wonder what her dads house looks like? Anyway now I’m getting ready for bed. See you in the morning.

Dear Diary,

Today is Friday. I went to Chloe’s dads house today. His house is small but neat. The heatwave is horrible today and its meant to be worse tomorrow. Tonight we are all sleeping in the lounge room because its much cooler. I wonder what we will do tomorrow? Chloe and Madi are watching TV now and I’m relaxing. Its as icy as an ice cube! I got to ride in their car too! It’s so smooth. I had a great day!

Dear Diary,

Today I slept til 8.20. Chloe packed up my blanket and we watched TV. It was so hot today so we mostly stayed home. It got up to 46.5°C. We had lots of icy poles. We watched Lego Movie, Minions and Secret life of pets. Then afterwards we coloured in and drew lots of pictures. Now Chloe is reading me Pig the Pug with a glass of cold milk before bed. Tomorrow we are going to grandma and grandpa’s house for a swim. We will have so much fun!

Dear Diary,

It’s Chloes last day with me before I go back to Mrs Riding. It was 45°C again! In the morning Chloe took me to her grandparents pool and then we went to Hungry Jacks to get a slushie. After we chilled out and watched movies again. Then we went back to Chloe’s mum’s house. Now we’re watching I’m a Celebrity get me out of here, then it’s straight to bed.

World Read Aloud Day (WRAD)

On Thursday the 16th of February Tenambit Public School will join millions of people from all over the world who will be celebrating World Read Aloud Day.

Every year World Read Aloud Day calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology. It is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people.

Why don’t you join us too by reading aloud and sharing a story or two?

Please leave a comment and let me know who you read to.

Fantabulous February

Isn’t it great to be back? During the holidays Sarah posted an acrostic poem on her blog that inspired me to have a go myself. Here’s my attempt.

This one’s also for you Mr Brown. I know how much you love acrostics.



Familiarity and comfort of home after a month away.



Energy, enthusiasm and inspiration gained from being back among my peers.



Blistering summer sunshine. Just perfect for long days at the beach.



Ripe, luscious, juicy stone fruit. Yum! Yum! Yum!



Unlimited supply of books. Pure bliss!



Amazing art being created for the art extravaganza.



Rewards and joy that every day brings and lastly,


You, the students of Tenambit who give my life meaning and purpose.
