A Little Slice of School
So, I made pancakes the morning after Thanksgiving and tossed in some leftover pumpkin pie stuff along with a few chocolate chips. Worked beautifully! Gourmet, I tell you, GOURMET!!!
Cute hat--couldn't resist!
Ah, PAINTING! One of THE most "relaxing" things I do with thirty-one ten and eleven year olds. Here are all the Sample Santas lined up after a careful, detailed, step-by-step description of how this project should go down.
Marching to the beat of a different drummer that was obviously out of my hearing range.
Santas on parade!
One student spilled paint on the carpet. Other students jumped right in to get it cleaned up. They did such a thorough job, you can't even see where it happened. This kind of thing MELTS MY HEART!
Working, painting, concentrating...
Two little peas in a pod watching CNN Student News.
While playing the part of General Thomas Gage this morning, I taught about the Quartering Act and explained that the British Soldiers would be needing their chairs today. ALL day.
Colonists were crying, "Intolerable acts!" and protested by making signs and hanging them around school. Methinks this 'twas the favorite.
