summer break = blog break!

Hello my fellow teachers :)-
Today is the last day for school For Edison, New Jersey! Wahoooo!! I do love teaching art but I also love the summer break. I am looking forward to a vacation we have planned with friends to Baltimore and time down the shore with my husband and kiddies.
I have to say a quick thank you to all of my fellow art/teacher bloggers. I taught for 6 years then took a 7 year break and had my 3 children. When I returned to teaching this year I found all of your wonderful blogs. You have inspired me more then you will ever know. So thank you for your blogs and taking the time to share your lessons and ideas.
I will not be updating the this blog over the summer, but I will be back in September!

News Paper Flowers

I have to give a shout out to Teach Kids Art Blog. This is her Magazine Flowers lesson with a twist. I did not have time to collect magazines so we did it with news papers : ). We had a class discussion on recycled art and things they have made from recycled materials. Then we jumped right in to the lesson. I gave the 3 different size squares for the flowers then a piece for the grass , stem, and leaves. I did the lesson with first grades-it went great. Here are some pics...
