Lately warm winds are blowing winter out of town. What a pity.
After a hot afternoon spent running in circles, all the baby horses
gallop inside to an air conditioned classroom and their visual
journals. Covers and tabs were made yesterday. All with donated materials.
Because I will be receiving so many supplies the visual journaling
workshop has expanded. 2 days a week, I am teaching Visual Journals 101 to another 2nd grade
class plus a class of 3rd graders (some of my students from last year)
in the afternoon. Those classes come to me and my little punks go to
their teachers for an hour.
Today the other 2nd grade class made the journals above. We used a huge stack of discarded cardstock weight notebook covers donated by Tyn. The students were good listeners, extremely creative, and quietly exuberant. Regular church mice. They accomplished a lot and were very pleased with themselves. Naturally my little punks were jealous and glared at the handiwork of the other class. Not one to promote inner tribal warfare, I assured them that I was saving the very bestest supplies for THEM. Psssst……Chris & Tyn, recognize the paper?
