Spring Break pictures
When we came back to school on Monday, I had every intention of blazing forth on new project lessons.
However, my students seemed more interested in telling me all about their experiences over Spring Break.
You know, there is a reason that the essay "What did you do for Summer Vacation" has been a fixture in the American classroom for time out of mind. We all want to share our life experiences with one another. It is part of the human experience.
In response to the needs of the students, therefore, illustrating our Spring Break experiences was the first artistic expression of the week. After a quick 10 minutes of illustrating, any student who wanted to share was allowed to climb up on the stool in the front of the room and share with the class.
We had a great day!
