They won't give it up!

My little bloggers won't! They decided unanimously. They've made up a rota of where Campbell bear can be for the holidays. Who can pass him on to the next one, etc. He is the vehicle, after all. So, rather than individual posts they thought they would email me with his pics etc Well, we'll see what happens. Chris found that her students went off the boil in the hols, though that didn't happen with mine at Easter. Campbell emailed his pics at 7.30 this morning! I have a responsibility too. There's all these photos, sound files and video clips that I have promised to get on the blog, over the hols.
Because their Homework projects about places that had hit on the blog were fabulous and they had been such superstars, my Headteacher decided they were due an extra treat, and I concurred, so today, we had a lovely time in Southend. We had ice cream and chocolate cake at Muneroy tearoom. We went to Columba's footprint, Keil caves, saw and talked about Dunaverty Rock and the event that happened there. Wow they remembered from our Knights and Castles project! The best bit happened when Jamie asked me at every stop.'Are you still enjoying yourself Mrs Moffat?' and I could answer truthfully. 'Yes'
Oh I'm going to miss them! Wee splendid people. Is that navel gazing Ian?

Posts like this make me think primary teaching might have been more fun than I ever imagined (I thought it might drive me to drink!) I think the fact that your wee bloggers don't have hormones to contend with might help, don't you? anyway, I hope they, and Campbell, and you yourself have a wonderful holiday - you deserve it!

Primary teaching is great fun Chris- especially when we are allowed/able to unclip our creative wings and let projects like the teddy blog flourish. Having moved to Dunoon Primary I have had to relinquish the blogging for a time until I can establish myself with a new P2 class after the holidays and get my laptop online!

This is fantastic. I'm with Chris - primary school teachers have way much more fun than secondary school teachers! If it wasn't for primary 1 classes (the phrase "herding cats" comes to mind) I might be tempted to switch to primary teaching myself. :-)

P.S. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do in your new school.

Well people I don't really want to give the impression that it's always that way, and have you thinking you've missed out! I'm not so fond of dealing with the little curtain climbers in P1 myself! That's Morag's domain! At 7 and 8 years old they give you compensation for your efforts unconsciously. As in everything, you get back what you put in eh?

Hi Marlyn
Have been reading your Interactive Chatting Teddies blog and think it is great. I love the fact that children so young can use this technology easily and gain so much from it. A skill they will take with them as they move up through the school.

I am a Development Officer for ICT in education at Learning and Teaching Scotland and would like to visit you with a view to finding out about the world of blogging in your school and possibly writing up a feature for the ICT in Education website. You can email me at f.andrew@LTScotland.org.uk if you are interested.
