Those old Roll the Dice Drawing Games

Those old Roll the Dice Drawing Games!
Big Thanks to the original inventor and also to the teachers that shared iterations.  I dug them out the other day for a 4th grade class and they were so excited.  They were quiet, working together, being nice to each other - at the end of the year!  They made some fantastic drawings
BUT the best part was that they made their own categories.  So funny and interesting that other students wanted to play the NEW games.
It inspired me to make more.  If interested, click on the links below

Digital Media Final

Working Today, since early this morning, on a final exam that can include elements of every project completed this year.  Minimum 8 elements.  Open Book in a way, as the hand-made test booklet has little bits of each project in it.  It is a Self-Portrait Collage,  Example Below.
So Proud of my 4th year students that have submitted hand drawn elements to be included in their collages.
New Elective = Tons of work = Good, interesting work!
