Back to my students. We started a board game on the process of how new things - adventures - anything at all - gets created. It's a long way from completion. But I wanted to share with you that something wonderful is beginning to take shape, and for sure you will want to see it when it's ready!

The kids made mossy homes for their little people, while learning about moss, lichen, and fungi.

Ifigured out a better way to teach the kids how to make lamps. This one by Sydney is all about her love for Little House on the Prairie - can you even believe what a treasure it is? Lovely childlike thoughts brought to form in a usable object.
Peace, joy, and prosperity to you in the coming year and always! See you in 2015!

As Ms. Audrey's kids learn about farm animals, in the art room they are drawing and painting on paper and cloth, making pillows, stuffed animals, and brooches with tiny bells. There's been a lot of mooing and snorting, whinnying, clucking and baaing - along with the usual giggling and singing.
We made up a poem about making a cape and the kids flew. Ask them and they will tell you, yes they really do fly with their capes on!
Ms. Sophie's big kids are studying ancient Greece again, decorating and making pottery.
Ms. Melody is teaching her students all kinds of magic about trees, and they peaced out making these wool felt crowns. I am so excited, we are going to have a "celebration of trees" parade!
With all these projects I am still getting my kids to work on their drawing skills, ha ha!
Tyler is very proud of his archer, which will be part of a collage for his third grade medieval studies with Ms. Megan.
