Our Wedding Announcements came! I mailed all 20 of them out in today's mail.
In case you are wondering what the "fine print" says
It just basically says the where and when
and that it will be a PRIVATE ceremony
and that we look forward to celebrating our marriage with friends & family in the near future!
Art Room Happenings
My Second graders have been working on these Hot Air Balloons now for a few weeks! I have laid down the law with my expectations of coloring with "No white showing"
Thus not a rapid breeze through project!
Kindergarten Polar Bears!
I read them "the three snow bears" by Jan Brett
White Paint, Oil Pastels, sharpies.
What I don't like about this lesson is that my sharpies some how run out of ink from the paint. I swear the second you take a sharpie over tempera paint to outline, it like kills the marker.
I've been working hard on "Organizing" my students C R E A T I O N S T A T I O N
So basically what this shelf is --is for my students to come over and keep them selves busy should they finish a project early.
They have their option of stencils, plain white paper, How to draw cards, word searches, or coloring pages.
Every year I throw my old markers that still work, into this marker bin that the students are allowed to use to during their extra free draw time.
The color pencils where randomly there in my room when I over took it, so I have those (my junky mis-matched ones) and then a completely "complete" set that my older kids use on more in depth projects.
The biggest challenge for my students is that they keep grabbing our "GOOD" project markers and crayons for "free draw" which they aren't suppose to do.
Our Good markers I try to keep in color coded containers for each of my tables.
I keep all "MISC" craft stuff in Mason Jars. It makes it WAY easy to see what I am low on!
This poster is a new addition to my room (thank you Pinterest!)
It REALLY benefits ALL grades as a reminder of how color the "right" way!
