Pete the Cat

Our Pete the Cats....

Scarecrows

So much for these cute guys scaring off the birds.  Directed drawing lesson with 2nd and 3rds, black sharpie and crayon.

Dwelling in Unity

These are the windows on my new room.  I was so excited for the end result of these, couldn't wait to put them up and display the crayon resists that illustrate out theme verse for the year.  "How good and pleasant it is when God's people dwell together in unity." Psalm 133:1

Pumpkins

It's a pumpkin kind of day.  Although it's been 90 degrees here in So Cal, it was crisp over the weekend in MA.  Hence some Fall gourd inspiration.  I love teaching observational drawing in the fall and using gourds, leaves and acorns as still life.  And if u run out of bulletin board space, make cardboard prisms.

Oh Summer How I Miss You So


I can't believe it's gone and won't be back for a while.  It was an amazing summer.  One that will stand out forever.

I love a new sharpener.

My colored pencils are sharp for once.  I love having a sharpener that works.

Post-it Notes

Kinders went over classroom expectations, then had a few minutes to create a colorful, circular post-it note masterpiece.
