Toilet Paper Roll Pinterest Project Completed!

I pin a lot on Pinterest. I mean ALOT! There are so many cool ideas out there- and sometimes the ones I think I thought up are on there already! So funny- anyway, here is one that turned out really cute. Our school is at like 95% poverty level, so we do a lot of recycled projects. I go to this awesome place every year called ZeroLandfill Nashville. Lots of designers and interior decorators donate old samples they have, and people like me (teachers, scavengers, hoarders-you know) grab it up. I use those materials throughout the year for different things. I will have to look through my thousands of pics to find some of those projects to share. The following project uses something we all have access to (for the most part- lol) toilet paper rolls. I had so many of these things that I had to do something with them. I found this on Pinterest: Sorry-I don't know who to give credit to this awesome project- I will have to go back and look. This is what some of the kids made- Keep in mind, this was a one day, 40 min. project. This class was a week ahead, so I had to find something quick and easy...and they loved it! I think next year we will do this but turn it into a mixed media project- adding model magic, or fabric. Fun!

Colorful Owl Pastel Drawings

Last year, I attended the Create 2012 conference in Murfreesboro, TN. Several of the teachers from my town attended, and it was great. My favorite class was one on drawing animals, and the class description said something about being "based on the style of Laurel Burch". Well, since I am a big fan of hers, mostly because of all the things she had to overcome in life, I attended. The lady was so sweet, but basically she showed us her work, and let us have at it. That was fine with me! I was ready to just make something. Having an obsession with owls, which dates back to the 70's when they were first in style, I naturally chose to draw one. This is what I came up with- I took it to school, and the kids went wild. I don't know if it was the color, or the glitter, or what, but they BEGGED to make one. They did a great job. I believe these are from the third graders- Pretty cute, huh?

Romero Britto Inspired Walking Horses

In honor of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration,  the students have started creating their Romero Britto inspired horses. I think they are awesome! When they finish the Horse, they will work on the background. These are works in progress...
