Back to School

Trying to get mentally ready to head back to school tomorrow. I had a great 5 day break and did a lot of crocheting and crafting inspired by my Pinterest boards (more on that later).
I was just cleaning off my camera and remembered that I took some shots of my room before I left on Tuesday - this is what I have to look forward to tomorrow...
My drying racks were full to the brim and overflowing onto the counters.

I love to clear the drying racks and revisit the great work my students produce! Here is a little peak at what everyone is doing.
Kindergarten is working on Cardinals in the Snow.
4th Grade is printmaking with Collographs inspired by music.
1st Grade is finishing up their Aboriginal Dot Paintings.

2nd grade is working on Chinese Brush Painting.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving break with friends and family! Back to School tomorrow - 3 weeks and 2 days until winter break (but who is counting :-)

As promised here is my VAEA Presentation

Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback I got on this presentation. Going to conferences is always such a great motivator! Virginia is for Art Educators!
