This week my enthusiasm for creating new and exciting things for my students to do has been kind of waning. Really I just want to play games, feed them pineapple lumps and get them crazy on sugar highs. But, for the sake of teacher’s sanity and the kids learning I have restrained from causing raucous havoc, and instead made a darn cool work sheet.
It is so cool and I am so proud of my artistic abilities I am going to share it with you. It made me very happy.
I think most of the finer details of the characters which I had painstakingly hand drawn were slightly lost on the children. I noticed afterward that Nancy seemed to be the only one truly happy and thought this was clearly due to her gravity-defying air-hostess hair style. Tim and Sharon are crying precious jewels which must be a gift in financially challenged times so I am not sure why they are so unhappy. Tim may be mourning the loss of his hair… Sam is unsure of his hair style which clearly his mother did for him and sorry, Georgina, but you are just one angry lady.
I think it is clear that I either have too much time on my hands or need to be committed that I am creating individual personalities within my teaching materials.
In other news, tomorrow I am taking my suitcases to Yssingeaux. Sophie and her family are very kindly looking after them for five weeks while I go exploring. I have no idea how I managed to accumulate so much stuff… I have gone from this:
plus a back pack and a satchel…
