AUSTRALIA

Bonjour everyone!

Great to be back with you.  I'm feeling a lot better - thanks to all of you who sent me kind messages.

My Australia shaped tag was cut on my craft robo and I decorated it in aboriginal style with Promarkers.  I used to love doing this style of art with the children when I was teaching - they used to go through tons of ear buds to make the dots with paint!!  I find the meaning of the symbols used quite fascinating.  I also cut the kangaroos and the lizard/gecko (?) on the robo, then added some twine for the tie.  Can't wait to see what you've all done.

  6. Good on you for sharing Australia's stories and symbols with your students. The Dreamtime stories are wonderful in both their simplicity and strong environmental messages.
    Great to hear you are feeling better!
