What a Monday!

It has been a really great day! Today we started our new project in grades 3, 4, and 5. Since we live in Walking Horse country, I adapted the Zentangle to be a HorseTangle. The kids are loving it! They were soooo well behaved today-almost hypnotized! This is definately a lesson to repeat year after year.
The grade 2's did another version-a circular zentangle. We discussed lines and shapes based on the 5 Basic Elements of shape from Mona Brooke's Drawing with Children. Here are some examples of the work from today:
Just to clairfy, the second horse is the demo I did... ;)
Didn't they do an awesome job! I can't wait for them to finish...


  1. Yes, Yes and more Yes! I love your blog. I really like the template. I tend to switch my template ever so often but I think I will stick with this one. Once you have followers, I think they look for your template as a trademark. Looks like you have some good stuff. I will add you to my blog roll.

    PS. When you are commenting on other blogs, be sure to include your blog name as you signature so viewers (other commenters) can easily visit you blog. Just a suggestion.

  2. Thanks Mrs. Hahn! I am hoping to get this blog looking as great as yours!


Pretty Little Piggies
