My colleague and friend is recovering from surgery and will start chemo for cancer soon. I miss her terribly. She is always the bright sunshine on our first grade team. I'm not sure what we will do all year without her. Her favorite flower is a daisy and so on Wednesday I had my class create little daisies with acrylic paints and they came out beautifully. It was so easy that I plan on teaching the whole first grade. We will be putting all the little paintings together with a photograph of all the kids. We are hoping that this will represent a bit of sunshine in my friends day over these next long months.
I know I'm not an art teacher but I love having my kids create with different mediums.
Next week we will have our pumpkin party on Friday. We will play several games and eat a few treats. We are looking forward to visiting again with our skype buddies from Iowa. Check out Morning Sun Elementary to meet our friends. Here's Mrs. Hilton's fantastic blog.
Remember to be kind!
