I'm Back!

Lon g time no blog - however, starting a business during a recession adn havign a baby do take one's focus away from classroom blogs of years gone buy... BUT! Room5ians DO in fact rule, so Room5ians Rule will never die.

Today I have discovered a cool new solar system thingy on Stumbleupon. Check it out:

It's soo cool!

Room 16 - what do they want?

Hi Room 16 - today you were your usual lovely selves and you had some training on Google Docs, searching on the Internet and posting in a class forum. What was most useful about it? Is there any feedback for your teachers?

You also tried out speed writing and shared some nifty short pieces of unplanned writing. What did you think about that as a warm up activity?

I think you did a good enough job today to earn yourself that choice of a game or some special in-class activity. Perhaps your fabulous student teacher will arrange something tomorrow. I will be back and we can look at your responses to this post in class if you post some comments. 
Ciao fo rnow,
MrWoody :-)

p.s. my son is learning everyday and he is four and a half months old. Use your brains and never give up on learning and trying your best.

chicken coup designs

i HAVE AN AWESOME CHOOK HOUSE AT HOME. But there's no need for me to shout about it.

Leave links here to online plans for chicken houses or sites that have info about raising free range, organic chickens or sustainable backyard setups.

Did you think the greenhouse area was a good site for us to start our venture?

Have fun!

I took these photos at the public Permaculture Garden at Hamilton Gardens. Here is a link to their website so you can contact them for more information about permaculture:
