When I showed her what we were doing, she was very excited. We started with a white cloth napkin and if she enjoyed this project we would later tackle something larger like an apron or book bag. This was just the right size for now though. You take your Elmers Gel Glue and draw a design all over your fabric.

It is not that anything different happened this week it is just that I didn't have the energy and felt completely scattered all week. This ever happen to you? For example, I packed the prize boxes, of course forgetting to put in a nice note to all the winners, then I couldn't mentally gear myself up for: juggling two kids, 5 boxes, rain, and most likely a line at the Post Office.

Search results for sonia delaunay My 8th grade students just finished their final project and just in the nick of time as tomorrow is our last day of school.

My students were really interested in her work as they saw posters hanging on my wall and in the hall of her work so I took a cue from their interest and decided to develop a lesson around her work. We focused on line first. Art Room 104: YAM: 3rd Grade Picasso Third grade teachers really jumped on board for my YAM activities. They created a two week unit in their classroom about art!
