Busy! Busy!

Hello, it has been a while! I feel like my lil' blog has been neglected the past few weeks. What that really means is that this teacher has been super busy! Busy is good, right?! Here's an update of the happenings in room 16!

March is one of the busiest months of the school year! We have The Young Author's Faire, The Art Faire, Open House, and let's not forget about St. Patrick's Day! Here is what my class submitted for The Art Faire! 

We started with a canvas and painters tape.
Finger painting!
Beautiful! 
Here's what it looked like when we removed the tape:)!

Did I also mention it was also safety month? Here is our decorated door for the door banner contest. 
I loved the way it turned out!

We also celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a few projects:


I'm in love with directed drawings-such a fun way to teach step by step instructions!
Lil' leprechauns!

I tried a new project this year...watercolor spray painting! The kids had a blast! It was pretty simple...plastic stencils, paper, and water-color spray.
Yes, it does make a mess:).

Artists in the making!

We also had Open House this month! Here are a few things I had set out for the families {along with lots of the kiddo's work}.

Before my kiddos headed off to spring break, they received a VERY special surprise! A local pediatrician's office sponsored each child in my class and brought them all Easter baskets! The kids were ecstatic!


I'm off to enjoy the rest of my spring break!
