Laughing Australian Style

Look what strolled into my office the other day.

It was just what I needed 
(no pun intended)

A surprise visitor

I laughed and laughed.

Now who wouldn't want to be a teacher.  
We dress up just for fun.

It wasn't a special day but this lovely lady was just spreading some cheer.

Looking forward to 
2015 Book Week Parade Day 
in a couple of weeks.  

At my school our staff often dress in a common theme on this occasion.  
I love the way we do this.  We usually sit the Little Learners in our hall which we call the MPC. (multi-purpose centre)  It holds approximately 1200.  
Once the kids are seated our staff gather in the foyer and make a formal entrance to theme music.  

One year we were the deck of cards from Alice in Wonderland.  
Another year we were chimney sweeps from Mary Popins.  
We have been the characters of the Mr Men series books 
and the cast of Despicable me. 

The kids love that we go all out and I love that we have a big giggle together.
Looking forward to doing it all again soon.
Any ideas for staff costumes gladly accepted.

Happy Sunday

Not quite in the classroom yet...

Thanks for the warm welcome back to the wonderful world of blogging.  

This week I have been reading and reading and relearning and reading some more.
Not sure about you but reading so many great ideas from real teachers really inspires me.

Perhaps not educationally inspiring but...

A Little bit personal this time

Today I thought I'd share my latest family birthday.  
Little Miss 17years was delighted with her very quick and easy piggy birthday cake.  

Pigs in Mud

Hope it gives you a giggle.

Step by simple step

(unfortunately I'm no chef but I sure know shortcuts)

"As happy as a pig in mud"
The birthday celebrations were appreciated although very simple.  
Who says teenagers are trouble.  Feeling blessed, really enjoying mine!

Well there you have it!

Happy Saturday

I need a little help, please!

Well hello,

I haven't posted for just over a year now for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, I changed positions within my school and have not been teaching Kindergarten!
Secondly, I had dreadful computer difficulties.
Thirdly, I now have changed to Mac.
Finally, I've been super busy.

I guess that adds up to a whole lot of excuses.

I miss blogging and I miss reading blogs.  
I plan to spend the next couple of weeks catching up by reading as many blogs as I can 
while trying to locate the best user friendly blog writer I can.  

I was using Livewriter on my windows system but have heard this doesn't work with Mac.  
If you have anything to help me in my search then I'd love to hear from you!

But for now...

Happy Sunday!
Mrs Stowe :)
