Our theme in Afrikaans (the second language in most South African schools) was Art. we spent some time making little clay pots. As you can see, everyone had great fun making and painting these, and I think they look pretty good.
Deciding which colours to use - Jordanne re-painted this pot a number of times before she was satisfied.
A lot of time and effort went into these. I think moms and dads will be thrilled to see them.
After making the pots and painting them, everybody wrote an article explaining how they
made the pots, what colours they used, and what they would use these for.
The one on the left which is a hat and not a bowl, was made by Nikita. (No surprise to those of us who know her!)
I got my first cell phone when I was ten I liked texting better than paper and pen I got a cute voice mail that made me smile If someone called me I stayed happy for a while I liked the little games too But it wasn't long and my minutes were through My mom was getting tired of buying me time She looks at me as if I committed a crime
Cellphones Mp3, texting While busy,or resting You can use them while you wait You can use them on a date Not to be used at school Or in a pool But a cellphone is a very useful tool Calender,calculator Take a picture of an alligator Some have keyboards Others don't You can use them On a boat So call a friend Send a text Say good night before you rest Just remember to pay the bill Or your credit will go downhill
