What we've been up to

Sorry again for my lack of posting. You know how it is at the end of term. Lots of assessment, marking and report writing. I'm counting down the days to our Winter break - 9 days to go since tomorrow is a public holiday! Yeah! I've got soooo much to do in those 9 days I'm not sure how I'll get through it all.

You may also have read on an earlier post that I couldn't get photos off my camera. Well that's still true and I've also lost misplaced the school's camera battery charger... Luckily, I was able to borrow a charger to charge my camera and found photos on it that I took months ago! So, it's a bit late, but this is what we've been up to:  


ANZAC Day was ages ago I know, but I never go around to posting this pic (or actually finishing the board.... the public holidays and other things go in the way). It was meant to have writing in the middle, but since I ran out of time, I hastily added the wreath in the centre. The slouch hats was an activity from another Aussie blogger Jane at The Learning Curve.
We completed our Mother's Day craft. I made the Lemon Oil Body Scrub from Reagan over at Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits. The flower pot cards were from Pamela at First Class Teacher. A lovely mum made some cricut thingys to add to the pot and the cards we made.

The Desk Fairy visited a few weeks ago and look at what I found on one my kiddos desk as I was packing up on Friday. 
 To ____, My, my, your desk is tidy. From the desk fairy. 

One of my little cuties had made it for another student! How adorable! This little boys avoids writing like the plague so it was good to see him choosing to write on his own. He also gave me this on Friday:
During lunch, I could hear some shuffling by the door and went on over to see what it was. He had slipped this card under the door for me! I can't belive he gave up some of his play time to make it for me.   

We have been up to more, but that's all I've got for today. Better get back to the marking...


P.S. Is anyone else having problems with images coming out distorted on google reader?
