Hand Drawn Holiday Trees By School Subject Area

Hand drawn Holiday Trees by School Subject Areas:  Technology, Science, Phys Ed, Math, History, English/Library, Music & Art.  Would make a fun lesson plan or Journal Challenge.  I definitely had fun with it!


I also made Holiday Gift Tags out of them.  Message me if interested.

Animated GIF

I hadn't used the timeline in Photoshop for many years.  A student, Haley, refreshed my memory the other day.  I am very thankful to have Haley in Media Art class this year!  I also tried out some very quick shading under the advice of my daughter who is also in the class.

Fall Book Fair Cowboy Hats

My co-workers came to me with an idea and a video for launching the Book Fair Week.  Large cowboy hats fashioned out of rolled paper.  I tried to wrangle that rolled paper into a hat but it just wasn't working.  Then I tried rolled poster board - that didn't work.  Looked around at home improvement store and found a temporary floor covering, RAM Board.   It is made out of recycled materials, 100% Green and affordable.  It was light, easy to use and made a beautiful massive cowboy hat.  EXTREME fun!  The kids are still talking about it




Love this girl!  Love TL too!  You guys ROCK!

Fall Book Fair

I truly enjoy Book Fairs and the themes that come with them.  Building excitement for Reading - Priceless!
My mother is a retired Art Teacher so I grew up hand-cutting letters.  She usually does it for me now but she is getting ready for a show so I did it myself.  Little wobbly and crooked but I'm still proud of my work.

Super simple if you have just the right photos first.  I will be searching for better combinations tomorrow.
