I know I have been away for quite some time. A lot has changed. I got married, moved to Australia and now I have a beautiful baby boy. I haven’t been teaching for almost two years now. I have decided to take my career to the next level. I will be opening my own tutoring center here in Sydney in January, hopefully. I can’t wait to tell you all about it soon. My blog hasn’t been updated since. However, I have almost 6 years of posts related to my teaching experience and things I have shared with you. Therefore, I decided to compile my favourite posts related to teaching only and put them in a book. I may not be the perfect teacher but I feel that what I am sharing with you worked with me in my classroom and helped me a lot as a teacher and I would like to share it with you. My book will be available soon on Amazon.com and ebay. I will also be in Lebanon next week till August 15th. Topics in this book include:

  • How to Feng Shui your classroom to gain discipline and organization
  • Tips for decorating your classroom
  • Classroom management ideas that will helpin 
controlling unwanted behavior
  • Few teaching methods and ideas
  • Encouraging students to a healthy lifestyle

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to comment or contact me privately on: missfarah83@gmail.com and I will reply to you asap.

Why is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” such a popular book?

Why is “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” such a popular children’s book?

Small babies will just love listening to you read and looking at the pictures. Toddlers will enjoy turning the pages and, after a few readings, “reading” some of the words for you. They will also start to count with you as you read about all the things the caterpillar ate.

I suggest you buy this book if you can, rather than borrowing it from the library-illustrations resemble collages and are simple and colourful.

-The story is about the caterpillar eating, an activity that’s easy for small children to relate to and understand.
-The text is also simple, with lots of repetition which enables littlies to predict what might be going to happen next.
-Another thing children love about The Very Hungry Caterpillar is the holes in the book that make it look as if the caterpillar has eaten his way through the pages.
– There are several educational themes going on: numbers and counting, identifying different foods and the days of the week.
– The book also introduces children to the different life stages of a butterfly.

Why I read to my 3 month old baby

1969377_10153370081078677_2859270488878560818_n

Why I read to my 3 month old baby:
1- My baby won’t understand my words, but hearing my voice stimulates an interest in sounds and helps him develop listening skills.
2- No matter what your baby’s age, reading together is a great opportunity for cuddling and bonding.
3- By developing a regular reading routine from the start, books will become a natural part of my child’s day — one that he’ll associate with fun.
4- Reading to him helps build vocabulary, stimulates imagination, and improves communication skills.
5- Repetition is good because it helps him build language skills. I have been reading the same story for the past week.
6-He may also be fascinated by pictures with bright colors and sharp contrast
You don’t have to get all the way through a book, either. Just taking a few minutes here and there to read aloud to your child can make a difference.

Grade 2 A “Memories”

Today I finished making the Cds for my students to take them as souvenirs. I made a slideshow using all our photos throughout the year and I put music. We watched it together today in class and it got pretty emotional Sad smile It was so sad, but I’m so glad I was able to inspire my students and to see that they really appreciate what I did for them. I love them so much and I wish them the best in life. Until we meet again…
