Spellcheck

We were looking forward to our field trip with the fisheries officer to a local river.
Seeing as the Irish weather can be so unpredictable I was giving the class a list of what to bring. I typed it on my laptop and it went straight up on the interactive white board.
God, when I started teaching 32 years ago we were lucky to have a blackboard and a piece of chalk!!!
I wrote:
Please bring your wellies, raincoat, suncream.
I got up from my desk and started to walk around. I was a bit perturbed to see some of the kids sniggering, very unlike them. I took a quick glance at the board....and my blood ran cold. I had actually written
Please bring your willies, raincoat, suncream.
I nearly broke my neck getting back to the keyboard and began pressing delete, delete, DELETE!!!

Of course my kids were staring at me, wanting to see how I was going to deal with this catastrophy. So I imparted these words of wisdom.
"And that is the reason why you should always check your spellings before you print. Now, take out your lunches!"

  1. You will have to part with your replica watches sale for a short while, but it will be worth it in the end. Since the band is not part of the mechanical workings of the replica watches, it is a much less complicated thing to repair or replace. Self-repair is not recommended, especially for rolex replica. If you open up your watch and try to take it apart, you might not know how to put it back together. The best thing to do is take your replica watches sale to a professional who is trained to deal with all of the intricate details of fake breitling repair. This might cost quite a bit of money, so if you didn't spend that much on that replica watches uk to begin with, just buy another one. When it comes to watches there are varied opinions as to what is expensive and what is not expensive.
