A long hot first week done. A big weekend of making ahead.
Heat, late bedtimes and marking have eaten a few nights in a row.
Today was swimming carnival day, fortunately for me I was on leftover duty at school not out in the thermonucular blaze of the midday sun. We wrote haiku eg.
Cobar summer heat
Sweat sticks my shirt to my back
The cold tap runs hot
We also made tessalation art, played tiddlywink golf and tried a out a Taylor Mali lesson called ‘Build a Better Metaphor’. My favourite result of this last was:
‘The huge watermelon of happiness’
