Out for the Horse Show

I have been diligently working on ideas for this school year! I must admit, it is really a pain to go to school for 3 weeks, get into the groove, and then be out for 10 days for the Horse Show. I will have to retrain some of my little dearies, but it will be okay. Breaks are good. I am really excited about this year and all the ideas I have for allowing the children to get creative. My problem is where to start! Many times, my ADD kicks in and I want to move on before they are finished. I have to remember to slow down...I am wondering what my fellow art teachers do when you have those few that never seem to finish? I hate for them to take something home that isn't complete. :( I will be posting our latest creations next week, so stay tuned!

  1. Being that I only get to see each class once a week for 45 minutes, setting time limits on projects is a necessity. If a student has not completed a project by the deadline, they are allowed up to a week to come in before school, after school, or during their recess to complete. I will not nag them (not that I have the time or energy with over 700 students!). If my kinders do not finish coloring with crayons, I let them take it home to color it.


Pretty Little Piggies

The kids finished these up this week and I just had to share. Aren't they adorable? We started with a step by step drawing on pink cons...
