We've actually completed an entire week of school! Yet, it's impossible for the kids to play outside since their playground is buried in three feet of snow, and well, they only four feet tall themselves!
So we've been filling our afternoons with fun crafts. I'm inspired by the contrast of these bright colors against the snow as more often than not, black is always my "go to" contrast with bright colors.
|These colorful elephants were inspired by the story: Elmer.|
But even more, I'm inspired by my students creativity and enthusaism to do crafts! So now I find myself brainstorming and searching for stitching project ideas like THIS. Something they can keep in their own desks, work on when they have free time and during our "indoor" recess. Our harsh winter is wearing us all down. As you can kinda see in the picture above, we've can't not only go outside, but we're now under a gloomy inversion of freezing fog. We need something new that will be fun, motivate and rejuvinate all of us. So please do comment if you have ideas to share.
Thanks! Stay tuned...
