Daddy’s Stache of Candies

Father’s Day always seem to creep up on my calendar when I least expect it.  Perhaps its because there’s usually so much happening in June already with end of school year and all.  I found this cute idea off pinterest and thought it would be a perfect little present for the students to make for their dads for Father’s day.  Usually, we would do a writing composition of some sort but with all the strike action currently going on, it’s been pretty hard to find time to get anything done.  I loved the simplicity and quirkiness of this gift, definitely all Dads (and candy addict Moms) would appreciate.  😉


Norman Rockwell’s “The Connoisseur”

This was another fun art project that the kids got really excited about especially when I told them they would be the star of their art. 😉  Inspired by Norman Rockwell’s The Connoisseur, we created our own versions of the painting but with felt, crayons and construction paper.   I told the students to create the most wackiest drawing they could imagine…oh, they definitely had a blast doing that.  The final product turned out so well!  They all look so adorable with their cute little poses. 🙂

Every Day is Mother’s Day.

When I saw this on Martha Stewart’s website as I was browsing for mother’s day crafts, I just knew this would be a great hit!  I explained to the class that this was something really special that they’re making for their moms and that it’s their chance to tell everyone how awesome their moms are through a newspaper article.  After a discussion of how much our moms do and care for us, the students put their best efforts to work and produced beautiful articles for the mom’s gazette. =)  I laminated them so they can be preserved for many years in their family.  I have a feeling they’re going to love it!  Have a happy Mother’s Day this weekend.  =)  xoxo
