Mini yarn hats

This week we have chosen to make these mini Christmas yarn hats while speaking English in class. These yarn hats are adorable and so easy to make. I'll hang some in my Christmas tree and maybe one will have to go on the top of my head today - which is our last day of the semester.

Here is a collection of yarn hats being made in the classroom this week. 

Here is how you make them...

Mystery Skype with Melbourne, Australia

Today at 11 a.m. some of my 8th grade students were called up on Skype from somewhere in the world. At this moment in time Microsoft has a Skype-A-Thon and the students that we met were from Melbourne, Australia and they had prepared fantastic information about their country and I was especially interested in "the lamingtons" that they described as part of Australian cuisine. Sounded lovely and like something I'll try to make in the future. 

Thanks to Benjamin Lannen and grade 5/6 at Holy Spirit Community School - you did a great job! :)
