my hardest teaching job to date?

blogged by me domestic goddess On 2/07/2007 09:25:00 PM
or was it???? Lets just say the prospect of teaching 25, year 2 primary school students suddenly left me with butterflies in my stomach with only 10 minutes to pull myself together.......... but I did, and I am doing it all over again 3 more times!!

I am teaching year 1 and 2 students the importance of preserving their memories through the art of Scrapbooking. This follows on from a day workshop the children have done about their ancestors life's as children. I presented a class plan to the Head of year 1 and 2, pointing out how children can look at what is important to them as children today and what fun it will be to see how life changes in 10 - 20 years time. Mrs Bliss jumped at the chance and today was my first class. 25 eager children listening and enjoying seeing my scrapbooks, is a complete thrill. Although many were shocked that i never had a PlayStation as a child, and did i even have toys!! LOL. Unfortunately due to privacy laws and such, I was unable to take my camera to record this event, ironic I know, maybe i can arrange this by my last lesson in February.
Its cold outside, very cold and we are waiting for the white stuff and waking up tomorrow morning with 5 inches of snow!!! which will likely mean no school for the girls though. Its Izzy's valentine disco tomorrow as well. She has chosen her outfit and will be going over to a friends after school before the disco and then off out for a MacDonald's for teas afters, yes she is only 6, what a social life kids have to day.
More piccies from LA, street signs and such, all waiting to be turned into this weeks pencil lines sketch. OK so i missed the Sunday deadline, but I still love the sketch and has actually been a favourite Cathy Z layout for a while, and it will work perfectly with all my US snapshots! Also some piccies of me and our US celebs. This one above is the wonderful Dina and Janene, the brains behind Zsiage. I dont think the other 2 need introducing ;)

Hope you had a good day. Don't forget to check out the sneak peak of this months kit over at Scrapping Angels, it is selling out fast
