Getting Ready

I'm busy getting ready for the school year and I'm getting so excited! Right now I have more ideas than I can probably do in one school year. It's so much fun to seek out great projects and then figure out how to fit them into the elementary curriculum. It's actually pretty easy to reinforce all kinds of teaching with simple art lessons.

Tonight as I sat at my kitchen table gluing lengths of yarn onto little wood blocks to make stamps for block printing, my husband looked at me and said, "You're going to like your new job. This is just about your favorite thing: trying new projects and getting your hands dirty."

Well, he's right. I think this is going to be a fun year.
