Today's Gratitude Item: That parking is still free in the city center on Sundays. Managed to find a perfect, shady spot close to where I needed to be. Not having to 'feed the meter' was an unexpected bonus.

Salvaged Pixels

The original did not look all that great. Doing a bit of post processing helped. A bit.

Ocean Mosaic

Today's Gratitude Item: Kahoot! It's a website where teachers can create a quiz and then project the questions on the screen. The kids in the class use a unique code to access the quiz from their device / smartphone and they answer the questions as they are put on the screen. Kids get points for answering quickly and correctly and after each question, it shows who is in the lead. Our junior students really love this way of doing multiple choice questions and it's a great way to ensure that everyone in the class participates in the activity.

Today's Gratitude Item: An "hour of code". This resource features some incredibly cool games which teach kids the basics of programming in a fun way. Have tried it with some of our younger students and it worked a treat.

This one was a nice surprise. The 'glass' background was an obvious choice.

Today's Gratitude Item: An offer of free accommodation (staying with a friend) for Dance camp in April. Needless to say, said offer was deeply appreciated and it will make camp even more fun than usual.
