Photo Fridays: Butterflies

Butterfly Mobile

Originally uploaded by teachergal

I created a Butterfly Mobile in ceramics with some cookie-cutter butterfly shapes, which I pressed to flatten (the wings). I glazed them with antique blue and a raspberry colored glaze. The other night I got some purple string and strung them up.

These are a gift for my brother-in-law’s girlfriend who loves butterflies. I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed creating it for her.

And now the writing must begin…

The “Document a Week in Your Life” Challenge, hosted by Ali Edwards, is now over. Hence, I have to get on the ball with writing up my week!

My week is documented with raw images on Flickr.

This was last night’s dinner. I tried to plate-it in an attractive way so as to make it look as appetizing as it tasted. I don’t know if I succeeded with the plating, but it sure tasted great!

Positive Behavior

Too often, as teachers, we recognize and send home notes about bad behavior. At the end of last year, I started to send home notes about positive behavior. And now, I’m on to notes directly to my students about their positive behavior. This is what a sample of the notes I’m giving to ten of my students looks like today.

After all, it really isn’t easy to be green!
