Art Teacher Talk

Happy back to school, everyone!

I know a lot of you are in the same boat as I am, and that means getting ready for that first day! Though I LOVE summer,  I am excited to get back and see all of the students and staff. I hope all of my young readers will be discovering lots and lots of great books and art this year!

In the mean time, I launched a new blog out there for art teachers! It is called "Drawn to Teaching". (Get it???)
Click here to visit this blog!!

This art ed blog is something I've thought about doing for a while since so many people ask my advice about teaching and art projects. I'll be blogging about specific art topics, but also about things that any teacher might find helpful.  I'll also be sharing news about my art program. If you or anyone you know is interested, please check it out and share! I hope to post often (my goal is at least twice a month) but we will see what the year brings...

Monday Morning Fun Recap!

Monday Morning Fun on August 3 was, well, FUN! It was a beautiful day outside at the Fairhaven Visitors Center. The kids had a blast playing games, going in the bounce house, getting face painted, and hanging out with friends.

Story Time started at 10 and these were some awesome listeners! Special assistants held the special Floyd, Tiny and Larue stuffed animals for me. Then we made some puppets and I read the story again for more visitors.

It was great day! Thanks to Tourism Director Chris Richard for inviting me and his assistant for the day Ann Richard for setting up, helping with puppet making, and taking these great pictures.

Hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as I did!!

Special assistants hold onto the corgis during story time.

These kids were a great audience for Floyd and the Sparkling Seashell!!

More visitors listen to another reading of Sparkling Seashell.

Even Chuck E. Cheese hung out with Floyd and friends today!!
