Art with Mrs. G! - Roosevelt blog I was in Texas at the National Art Education Association Convention! That's a great big event where about 5000 art teachers attend workshops and presentations to help them continuously improve themselves and their teaching. Teachers and leaders in the Art Education field share ideas, lessons, art materials, and most importantly - their creative passion to teach the love of Art to all their students. I attended many sessions where I learned some new things, was reminded of things I've forgotten, and was generally inspired. One of the best parts of going to this National Conference was the chance to meet in person people who help me be a better teacher every day.

Tons of Fun: Dot Marker Counting This was a pretty simple game to set up and play. First I took our dotmarker set, which includes 6 colors, and dotted each side of a blank die with each color. Then C and I took turns rolling a number die and the color die. If we rolled a "3" and a "teal" then we would put 3 teal dots on a piece of paper.

This book has been a favorite of O(5) and E(2) for years, and we thoroughly enjoyed reading it (almost) everyday for 2 weeks (I decided to be very relaxed with this, so we read the book for 2 weeks instead of 1).
