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
The students literally oooh’d and ahhh’d when I told them we were starting our owl unit this week. Their enthusiasm truly inspires me to constantly hunt for new and fun lesson plans. =) These guys went “goo-goo-ga-ga” over the fact that they got to use sharpies for this art project. Oh, how easily content they are at this age. 😉 They drew their owls on telephone book pages via directed drawing from me. I really love the fact that every owl looked different than the other. How lucky am I to have a class of students that embraces creativity! Thanks for stopping by today! xoxo, C.
