First I would like to share a couple of pics with you. I have had a HUGE week both at home and at school.
After spending some much needed family time together I was back into school with our Book Week Parade. I also had my 40th birthday on the same day so essentially I had a huge whole school fancy dress party.
We all had a fun day and I even made apple cupcakes for the staff (I thought it was funny!) and made chocolate cupcakes for my class.
The other big event that we had the very next day was performing for Education Week. We joined other public schools at the local shopping centre to perform 2 songs using sign language. We sang "The Rainbow Song" and " The Wheels on the Bus." Many of the students and myself have only started learning sign language this year as we have a little girl in our class who is profoundly deaf amongst other challenges, see my post about her here.
I was SOOOOO proud of them! We had a huge crowd and we sang unaccompanied by music so it was really up to them to make sure they sang loud and proud. To top it off there were a few members of the deaf community in the audience so I was really nervous that they wouldn't do the right signs. In fact I was so nervous that when my principal asked me to introduce them I felt so nauseous I couldn't speak and she had to introduce them. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't have been half as nervous if it was just me up there, but these kids were 7 and 8 yrs old and like I said it was a huge crowd!
To top everything off I reached 50 followers while I was away, so I am having a 20% off sale at my TpT store, for the next 4 days! So get in and get a bargain, I always price my items fairly low so you might even get a super bargain!
Well getting ready for another big week at school, and a big thank you to all those who left comments of support.
