Summer Break Art!
Summer break is here and my Summer Bridge Page has been updated with ideas to keep your students innovating, imaging and inquiring all summer long! Send me your photos and videos of arts and STEAM projects and I'll add them to the gallery AND give you bonus points for the next school year! Don't be afraid to feel a little silly and get a little messy!
I'll start it off with a video of Bubble Wrap Stomp Painting from my Summer Arts Pinterest Board - which shall show why I will be sticking to teaching the visual part of the arts :) Have an imaginative, innovative summer! You inspire me!June 9, 2017:

Help build our visual art library! As a believer in integration, I work to incorporate reading into my daily lesson plans and providing space for open studio, tinkering, making and creative exploration. A strong subject library that also offers fiction with rich and interesting illustrations is central to making these ideas successful in reality. I often use book as starting points for engagement and illustrations from Caldecott winning books as discussion points. Additionally, resources that help me to become a better teacher are also in this list.
