Busy Halloween day

Busy day today with my grade 2 boy starting work on the Enormous Turnip and my grade 4 girl starting work on The Children of Green Knowe
My grade Prep girl typed her first 3 sentence story on the computer today!
Bean doing well!
We don't do Halloween here in Australia, the big confectioners and department stores are trying to push it but hopefully we can resist it! My ghost story theme is just a coincidence, although I have sold lots of my Sleepy Hollow units on TPT.

Hail today


Atrocious R&D spending

To address poor employment prospects, amongst university graduates the government might have to spend more than  0.4% of GDP on science.
Meanwhile.....this is all kind of wrong.

Spent the morning preparing for next week and trying to do next years AIP on SPOT! It's a massive overkill in a small school and I should have stuck with the 'pen and paper' version ( I have a feeling I've wasted 2 hours of my Saturday morning) because I've 'hit s snag' I sent a distress signal to my SEIL for Monday. We will see if he gets back....and then if he can help.
Action station!
My grade2 boys beans are growing ....magically!
I have some units to put on TPT this afternoon and a 70s fancy dress party to go to! OMG!
