I heart reading...

I saw this cute little project on Pinterest. I wanted to show my 4th graders, so I used construction paper instead of felt to make this adorable heart bookmark. I'm looking forward to making some with actual felt.

Year of the dragon

I love art. Period. Even more so, I love teaching art to kids. Teaching 4th graders art is even more special, especially when you see their growth over the school year.

With this year being the year of the dragon, what is more appropriate than teaching my students to draw a dragon, and then using oil pastels to color it. Mixing and blending colors is so much fun, and getting incredibly messy in the process tops the cake.
