Finally it IS summer for me....

Thursday, June 25, 2009

The last 2 weeks were still aaaawfully busy but now I am here... Hopefully I can stay and write again....

The recepies are coming I promise.... (I have to frustrate my B to think about that as we didn't wirte down the recepies...... sigh.....)

But this post is about my last real school day. On Saturday we had a big day... I gave the very first certificates to my Class (end of the 1st year to know).... And I had to say goodbye to my Class 8 group...
I got lots of presents from the students but this year they were very creative.... and they found very funny presents which I loved so much and I laughed a lot....

I have to show you the pictures with some explanations... I am usually embarrassed when I got presents... It is my job to teach so presents are a bit.... not expected.... I am happy to get pictures and drawings, little handmade things, but.... OK I do not want you to misunderstand me, being embarrassed is the good word for what I usually feel....and I would be totally happy with handmade or without presents.....

BUT this year they were so kind to think about things I which are in real connection with me... Let me show them to you.

I am usually an 'easy person', you buy or make something orange and I am totally happy... And most of my students know about my 'orange mania', the ones who listen....
So I got orange flowers... and flowers in orange pot.... :)

I wanted to take a pic about all the pictures but there were too many, I couldn't. I got a really nice 'garden bouquet' as well. So here are the variations for orange flowers :D

My class bought me a huge orchid (and it was stormy wind outside so I worried about taking it home but my colleague took me home by her car instead of trying the bus...) It is beautiful I hope I will not kill it.... I am not a big gardener, but maybe I can manage (my B immediately said he could take care on it on his work desk.... maybe he'll get it...I am not sure...)

And now the funnies are coming:

A mini basketball, orange and basketball :D... 2 in 1, it will be very useful in 'gólyatábor' (camp in August for the new students which I organize) at lake Balaton.... the other one is a bottle of perfume....it is called Halloween, and yes, my students now how much I like Halloween, that is my favourite festival...

This is a sign to my desk. I got it from a boy who I sent to find things on my desk several times during the school year (when I was in a hurry and forgot half of my things in the teachers' room.... khm... yes, I know.... I am not that perfect teacher type....) Is says: Everything is on its place on this desk. If you touch anything you are in danger.... (Did I mention my desk is awfully untidy, full of books, papers, flashcards, puppets, and objects for the theatre groups like elf wings, treasure box, necklaces etc....?)

I got 2 books (they remembered how much I love books..) a Wodehouse one and one about Irish pubs (I told them I do not drink alcohol, now I can read about it! :D). The card next to a book was written by a parent of the child (I always said 'wow, what a nice sign!' when I saw the parent's sign on the girl's tests...) which gives more heart for the present.... Ah, and the pen... I love calligraphy and on the last lesson we talked about art pens with a girl who is an art competition winner artist in the group.


And from a boy who I teach 7 years ago but unfortunately (for me) he will go to high school after a successful entrance exam.... the squirrel jam!!!!! (and he is in another group... not the one was mentioned in the previous post....:) )
I was very sad to say goodbye for these humorous students but they made me laugh on our last day.... I hope their lives will be full of laughter later as well!

what creative kids you are teaching! the halloween perfume and the orange ball is just so very thoughtful of them. I don't always give present to the teachers of my kids, but when I do, they are always handmade by me, and I hope that they love them.
have a lovely summer!
