After recuperating a bit, you actually start to feel human again and are amazed at the ability to make choices about how to spend your time...

I'm with you, Valone.
It takes time, but healthy options have an impact, even if you think you are rocking the boat at first. Eventually, the rest of the family begins to make better choices and...

Great Story, Trish

I'll remember to include the coil pot method in my curriculum this year.
How tall is your vase?

Clay Ideas for H. S.

I'm looking for fresh ideas in clay for all levels. We make basic containers in level 1, masks in level 2, and I let them choose various sculptures in higher levels.

Just a Thought or Two...

Check with area businesses such as...
1) a printer that might have paper stock they don't use

I saw an article on using CDs in a former issue of Arts & Activities. They have back issues listed with topics on their website. It's worth a look...

Cheerful, Short & Sweet

Perhaps a simple introduction with a statement about yourself. Then some activities that students will be doing this year. Then a list of suggested recyclables that parents can donate. Brevity is...

S1, as one who fell in love with Spazz the moment I saw your former avatar, I can't believe a human in the education system could be so cruel!
With that kind of heart, you can bet...

Live long and prosper...

How many do you need?
If you just want the Mr. Spock look, I would attach felt-shaped ears to a headband or let them hang from a hat.
Cones of felt could be stuffed and "velcroed" around sneakers...

I agree with cH when it comes to keeping things simple. I've spent too many nights on top of a ladder at the school alone at ten p.m. to wish that on anybody else!
And, if you do multiples of...

Some consolation...

They do grow out of the puppy stage...most cats grow up to be calmer and less destructive, if you can deal with them until then. One of my former little hellions is eight years old and...

An Age Old Question...

So many of us have been there!
Do we try to save the "little dimpled darlings" who cause grief, or put our efforts into those who actually try? I think doctors and EMTs call this act of sorting...

Thanks, REB!

I really TRY to keep my insanity a secret, but, after twenty years in the Art Room, I've decided I've earned it! :D
You're going to be fine, because you have a wonderful heart. People are drawn to...

For Fast Phils...

I plan a task that I don't have to teach for early finishers. Something they can do independently with few supplies. That way, I can be attentive in "cheering on" my slower workers.

LRE for whom?

The child is providing a "Highly Restricted Environment" for your other students. If other students are in physical danger, you and the district could be facing a lawsuit. If the Coordinator thinks...
