Relief for Relief Teachers. If any teacher has ever relieved another teacher’s class, then they will have realised it is very different from having their own group of students and being well-prepared can make the day much less stressful.

Relief for Relief Teachers

As a relief teacher, there is very little time for planning and a phone call at 8 am in the morning can mean being in class at 8.45 am in an unfamiliar school with a group of students you have never met before. The more notice you have the better. If you can, arrive early to familiarise yourself with the school environment (ask for a map), the behaviour policy, and to photocopy your resources. More great tips for making your day go smoothly are here. I spent the latter part of the final term of 2008 as a relief teacher and have compiled tips and notes gained from my own insights and also those of other relief teachers.

E is for Explore!: habitat

Guiberson, is an awesome book that shows kids the life cycle of the saguaro cactus, as well as biodiversity that encompasses the desert ecosystem in the North American Sonoran desert. The book focuses on all the different species that live inside of the saguaro cactus (while it's living and after it dies). It's a fantastic piece of literature to integrate in a Life Science Unit. Experiment 1: Demonstrate how cacti survive in the desert materials: 4 cacti, water, and your science journal (to record your findings) Water each cacti differently: "One as directed, one every day (kept saturated), and one with ten times more water than needed, and the final one no water at all.

Experiment 2: The Water Storers - Cacti Adaptations Recreate how a cactus absorbs water by using a sponge, toothpicks, a flashlight, and clay. Encyclopedia of Life - create a field guide to organize desert species! Skype with kids in Arizona about the desert and the saguaro.
