Teacher Dress up Day

I went way outside my comfort level and dressed up as a story book character on our Red Ribbon Dress up day last Friday. I posted my picture on Twitter and Facebook Art Teacher's group. I even went as far as sending a picture to Cassie Stephens . Soooo....... I need you to vote for me. You can vote everyday this week.  There are many other outstanding teacher on her site that you can vote for too,  and save ideas for next year.  Thanks so much!

Day of the Dead

I love my fall lessons, but we are running behind after having a student teacher the first nine weeks. These 4th graders should be ready to wash the soap outline off the black paper next week to complete their sugar skull lesson. The soap lines will reveal black outlines and the oil pastel stays put.  Here is a previous display! Yesterday was Story Book Day on Halloween. I decided to dress as my favorite artist PIGASSO It was a blast and almost all the kids Got IT.  We finished up the day with a few magic Pasta Pots after reading Strega Nona. This artist was dressed as Elsa! Metalic FX crayons make everyone happy! Three weeks and then a week off.....oh btw my Kiln is now fixed! Yippie
