Over Easter, I’ve been updating some of my old VELS units for the Australian Curriculum.
There’s one for Years 1 & 2 called Stories Around the World (and I’ve started another one called Habitat which I’m currently teaching. I’m aiming to upload that at the end of Term 2 if the workload involved in the School Review isn’t too horrible. (In my dreams!)
There are now three completed Prep Units: Fables; Wild Animals, and Beatrix Potter.
I’m working on a trial unit called Explorers for Year 4, and an ANZAC unit called Animals at War for Year 3 – though I really don’t know whether these are going to be practical in composite classes.

If you’re a teacher-librarian, you’ve probably come across New Frontier Publishing because some of their titles have been featured in Australian Standing Orders selections.
Like many other publishers of books for children, they offer resources for teachers on their website…but because they’re a small, indie publisher, you may not know about them.
So here’s the link. Happy browsing!
