Crazy busy week here! These are still blooming from my flower boxes this year. The colors tie in well with the following fellow...
Day of the Dead lesson from Deep Space Sparkle. Still tweaking it for my classroom use. I'm adding in the elements of balance and proportion to fully round out the lesson for my curriculum but the kids seem to enjoy it so far, especially since one of the kids stood up to tell us what his family does to celebrate the day at their home.

Another oldie but goodie here with the extra added twist of the color spectrum. My first grade classes meet with me just after their lunches so this lesson is timed perfectly.
We watch a short video I've shared many times before ROY G BIV on Youtube -They Might Be Giants
Then we make sandwich layers. Trying to remember to have something to hold the sandwiches on the top and bottom layers.
A colorful addition to the hallways as well.

I love Pinterest. I'll admit it. I love it a lot.
Maybe more than new crayons.
Ok, maybe a close second to a brand new box of crayons. But I do love the spark of new ideas I can get from seeing images on other Art Teacher's boards. Here's a few I'd like to include in the classroom this year.
