Create Your Own Comic

I found this site and thought that it hopefully would appeal to some of you folks. I think its a bit advanced for my class here in Germany. I'd love to see some of your finished works on the blog.

Hi Guys from Weinstadt

Hello from a damp Germany. Well things are going well here. School is good very different from Wairakei, but I expected that. I am responsible for teaching 2x 20 children English so that means about half the week with one class then the other half with the others. Both classes are grade two that means about 6/7 years old. The children have a basic understanding of English  they understand what I say but often answer in German.

The other teachers are good fun and very supportive of each other, this makes things happen quickly which is great.

I often cycle to work about 3 times a week. It´s about a 10km ride but all on cycle paths. Last week I got a real shock when cycling along to work a badger ran out in front of me. First time I´ve ever seen one!!!

Where we live is really beautiful it is a semi rural area with lots of vine yards and orchards. At the moment a lot of the fruit is being picked.

An orchard close to home.

This a work we go sometimes in the evening its about 2 mins from our house. If we go at dusk we often see rabbits. 

Not to sure what the gate is for?
Our street 
This is our new house a semi detached.A cellar, 4 bedrooms living area, kitchen and attic all with double glazing and very thick walls. A real change from our house in New Zealand. 
This was a light festival at a local town.

One of the local houses.

Well hope the pictures give you an in site into how things are panning out for the Brownes.

Class Song for the Production

What Would You Wish

What would you wish if you
could choose?
If just one wish was all you
could use?
I’d wish for sweets
Ten metres high!
You’d have bad teeth:
They’d make you cry!
Think again, think again,
Before you wish.
You must be so careful not to
Waste your precious wish!
What would you wish………

Chorus I’d wish to stay in bed all day
Aladdin You’d only sleep your life away.
All Think again, think again………,
Aladdin What would you wish………
Chorus I’d wish to be a movie star!
Aladdin Far better be just what you are.
All Think again, think again……..
Aladdin What would you wish……
Chorus I’d wish for peace
For me and you.
Aladdin You never know
It might come true!
All That’s the one, that’s the one
that you should choose.
With a wish like that you’d find
you simply couldn’t lose.
