Annual Project Tee-Shirt

        It's that time of year again.  My Annual Tee-Shirt Project has arrived again.  I ask my students to send in a new white tee-shirt, usually from Walmart.  I design a tee-shirt using self portraits of my kiddos.  Then I use tee-shirt transfer paper and iron the design onto the tee-shirts.  My class wears them on our field trip to the Tyler Place.  It will be a day to celebrate the end of first grade with loads of fun, swimming, boat rides, hiking and games.  We'll picnic together, too.  We love our time at the Tyler Place every year.  I love that my class is united by our shirts.  I bumped into some parents of former students that I had many years ago in Walmart.  I was getting a few extra white tee-shirts to complete this project.  They mentioned that they still had the tee-shirts from many years ago.  They are cherished mementos from first grade.  That's why I do it.  I'm making memories.

 My cat Ziti apparently loves them.

 Enjoy your week!
