Our holiday digi-art pictures are finally all finished! We did a great job of fitting the photo into a background. It was tricky to plan it so that things were in proportion.

Mrs N made us some "reading phones" out of plumbing pipe. When we speak into one end, it makes our voice sound very loud at the other end. We can use them to listen to ourselves reading. They're a great help when we're proofreading our writing. We can read it aloud to ourselves, but very quietly, so we don't disturb those around us.

We are learning, through experience, that when we type in URLs we need to remember a few things:
- there are no spaces
- we use lower case letters unless the address we're copying has a capital in it
- we need to be careful that we're using a colon (:) instead of a semi-colon (;) when we type http://
- just one letter, number or symbol can make all the difference, so our typing needs to be accurate
- if we have visited the site before, the address may be saved in history, so we can click that, if it appears in the drop-down menu, to save some time
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
