Spooky!

Standard

Okay! I couldn’t choose a better title for this post. It shouldn’t be spooky but funny or Halloween crafts or Halloween but then you wouldn’t read the post. Would you? “ah! another halloween post!”. Halloween is poking its nose round the corner and we’ve already started decorating the classroom. We tried to recycle material as  much as possible. We made a witch out of 4 or 5 ( I can’t remember now)empty boxes, paper, newspapers. We made some owls and we used egg cartons for the eyes. We made ghosts and a huge spiders ( and now I’m laughing because it looks like anything you want but a spider) using bin liners, newspapers and toilet paper rolls.   Ha ha ha! The poor spider lays in one corner of the classroom like a huge black splodge.

A friendly race

Standard

Ana came to school on Thursday and gave me the book, OUR book. I couldn’t believe it. I was there in front of her, holding “A Friendly Race” in my hands, reading my name on the cover but not really realizing it was MY name. I uttered a couple of  thank-you-very-muches, I bowed several times as I normally do when I say thank you and I closed the door. After a while, the penny dropped and I couldn’t stop jumping around the place and showing the story tale  to everybody.

Ana? You don’t know who she is. Do you? Well, you can visit her webpage http://www.anitadearbues.blogspot.com.es …if you do so you will learn that she is a brilliant writer, she writes stories for children, you will understand that those stories come from her heart, are processed by her brain and are eventually written by her hands. If you investigate a bit more you will learn that she sells her books herself, online or at markets around the Aragonese  region. Ana sometimes goes to schools and tells her stories to children, she interacts easily with both children and adults. Her heart is so big that she’s able to fit it both in all  her books and in her personal relationships. The only thing you won’t know by visiting and reading her blog is that she’s got a beautiful smile on her face 7 days a week  and she gives it to you freely early in the morning on her way to work. She is just a wonderful person!
