I log on tonight to find out that Tolkien Artist Jef Murray has passed into the West. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back at Dragoncon and he was the most lovely, gentlest human being I’ve met. God Speed, Jef.
Endless Squeeeeing about things.
I have been hard at work… THIS is what I walked into on Wednesday!
Those big boxes on the bottom – those are electric keyboards!!!! a BUNCH of them!!! Guess what my 4th and 5th graders are going to learn to play – once I figure out how to set them up and make sure when I plug them ALL up (there are at least 16 of them. Maybe 20) I don’t blow the wiring. This school building is older than me! )
First off I had to get stuff away from the walls. I was NOT pleased.
Those are some boring walls!
But happiness is coming!!!
POP!Thorout is VERY pleased with his new abode!
My son’s corner…
I have one of these…
and FINALLY! My Crucible Poster has a place!
It has nothing to do with the subject I teach, it is up for purely self-indulgent reasons. One of my neighboring teachers asked me who it was and I told them it was my future husband!
And yes, you are seeing my carb tabs as well as a big bottle of Tylenol. I shouldn’t explain this, do I???
I don’t think I’ll be able to use this record. Actually, I don’t have a record player. I see me bringing my computerized turn-table coming down with me the next time I go home. (Probably Labor Day weekend) This will become a wall decoration. These children have NEVER seen a record – think it’s a ‘big cd’….
Someone was tossing a perfectly good cubbie! It has all 4 wheels even! Of COURSE I appropriated it! I’ve made good use of it!
And LASTLY – I found this!!!!
It even has T-shirt transfers for the main characters, including Smaug!!!! The thing has never been used or listened to!!! There are lesson plans, all of it.
I am MOST excited. Can you tell???
