Since there is finally an iPhone app for eblogger, I can now post pictures from my phone straight to my blog!

School Auction Project

This is the auction project my students and I created.
Titled "Texture on Canvas" this canvas measures 40x30 inches and was painted with acrylic paints.
I painted the color and added the texture (click for a close up). Then I helped the students add their hand prints. This painting sold for several hundred dollars and I am so please that my class was able to raise such a great sum of money for the school.


I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted to my own blog!
Let me update;
Completed my Professional Certification June 2009 and my Masters in Education December 2009. Since then I have moved into a new apartment and I am now teaching 3rd, 4th and 5th grade at the same private school.

I have released the salamanders and I am currently going for weekend frog hunts. It is supposed to snow this week, so the frogs have not been too busy with eggs yet.
My new (frozen) bird bath during the November 2010 cold snap! Now the bowl has a crack in the bottom and will not hold water.

Juvenile Northern Flicker

Today there were four, yes, four juvenile northern flicker (woodpeckers) on my deck. One of them decided it needed a bath.

Another Monday Moment

Only in Western Washington . . . would my students feel the need to wear their coats over their heads, while outside, in order to read their books, without having the sunshine glare in their faces. I laughed, teased, took pictures and posted it on my blog and yet, I agree with them whole heartedly!

A Monday Moment

I have been using mechanical pencils for many years.
They are very convenient, never need sharpening, and are fairly cheep.

Since going back to school have been spending more and more time on my computer, using my mechanical pencils and a computer mouse.

I have now discovered a down fall to the combination of mechanical pencil lead and a computer mouse.When one does not know that a small piece of lead has broken off their pencil and become trapped under said computer mouse, this is the rather artistic result:
