I quite like having a count down timer on my blog, but the most exciting thing I can think of that is coming up is my birthday. And well, since I only just had my half birthday yesterday, I need to think of something else before then! Oooo maybe camp?!
Anyway, I digress. Teething problems are normal in any job, especially at the start of the year. I moved rooms at the end of last year (as has been the norm my entire teaching career. Hopefully this will change as of this year! I'm planning on staying put now, and only something huge will move me!).
I am soooo lucky to have a wonderfully large room with a Mimio projector in my class - and I LOVE it. So far I've only used it like a regular white board, just on the computer, but I need to have a play with it yet.
My problem though - It goes MENTAL for the first 30-40 minutes each morning. I'm not sure what is wrong with it, but I'm pretty sure it's the sun! From about 730-945 ish each morning, my board is flooded wiith brilliant sunlight (which will probably dissipate as the winter months come. This sun is gorgeous, but it honestly makes the board goes crazy!! The mouse plays on it's own, and it recalibrates itself over and over again.
Weird? Absolutely. Actually I take it back, the sun isn't doing it, I think there are ghosts, or gremlins living in my room. They only come out for those two hours, and then they hide again.
Crazy I tells ya! Crazy!!!
So really, there is no curse. Just crazy little men running around my classroom in the morning, playing with my board, making me annoyed. I guess we just do some old school learning til 10? Suits me fine.
On a lighter note, head over to either of these pretty awesome blogs for your chance to win big.
Jessica at Joy in the Journey, and Rosie at Rosie's Rambles are having a "Favourite Things" give away to celebrate a huge milestone they have both reached - 200 followers. WOW
Does anyone have gremlin repellent handy?
