Help me make my coloring book

Hello!

I am so nervous about this campaign. Asking for help is such an awkward thing.
I am telling you what I want to do in the video above. BONUS: you´ll hear me talk!
And my IndieGoGo campaign is live and you can read more about it and what I want to do here!
Or you can go to Indiegogo.com  and search for “ridiculoso”

PS. Extra thank you to our lovely supporters for helping us along the way.
Thank you for encouraging us.
Kicki. Isabelle. Heidi. TeamBoo. Fredrik. Alexandra. Sam. And mom.

Gå till indiegogo länken ovan. Eller använd sökord “ridiculoso” på indiegogo.com
Och lägg in en förhandsbeställning.
Så får du en lagom till jul som du kan både äga och aga.

When I started the video and first heard your voice, I thought to myself, “Did Jenny ask an American friend to do the voice over for her video?!” but then I kept watching and saw it was YOU doing the talking. (And then heard a bit of a Swedish accent, too, which is great because that makes it even awesomer to me.)

This is a cool, creative project and I plan to get pre-order an international copy after work today. It’ll be neat to use some pages at school: admittedly, teens don’t really do much coloring in class — even if they wish we could — but these pages will serve as EXCELLENT story starters for my language classes. “Es war einmal eine Frau, die so sehr wilde Tiere mochte, dass sie sich wünschte, mal mit den Rentieren und Eisbären in den Arktis zu spielen. Aber eines Tages wach sie auf und…” (Admittedly, I’m not sure how scientifically accurate that story would be — reindeer and polar bears playing together?! — but, then again, creatures that are half-human and half-deer tend not to dance on dining room tables either ;-) so it’s all good.)

Lena K!
I woke up and then read your comment with my coffee. Really cant think of a better start.

I´m trying to picture what your classroom will look like with my coloring sheets in front of bored teens. Them trying to sneak a peak on their phones, looking out the window. and so on…

Thank you so much for your contribution and for your encouraging comment!!

Ps. I´m American at heart =)
and I thank TV for my English. (we don´t use dubbing in Sweden we only subtitle)

You’re very welcome, Jenny! My contribution seems to have just gone through so fingers crossed now. And, yes, hooray for the positive benefits of TV viewing. :-)

As for my classroom, it’s bright with big windows to let in lots of natural light as well as very colorful with student work hung all over… not to mention the “creative” stacks of books and papers everywhere, ahem. As for the students, they are wonderful (really!) and never bored (um…) — in fact, sometimes they beg me for more mundane tasks, like extra pages of mind-numbing grammar exercises and hours of outdated slide shows. ;-) For real though, we actually support cell phone use, focusing on maximizing learning or at least encouraing “multi-tasking.” And, indeed, many students have really found playing Candy Crush to enrich their educational experience, ha!

I enjoy hearing about your work. Of course “bored students” is just a prejudice of mine. It seems I’m getting old,,,

Thank you so much!
