This week is teacher appreciation week at our school...some of my students gave me flowers that made me smile all day :)
PROJECT SNAIL WITH SLIME TRAIL
I started off by showing the kids how to draw a snail without lifting the pen (only to make the eyes and mouth).... We drew our snails with some funny expressions.... cut out small pieces of decorated paper that we glued to the snail...
I brought with me a bottle of "snail slime" (glitter paint) that we painted under the snails belly and the trail he left behind him...
How can you just not adore these little guys...I want them all on my living room wall... The project was fun, successful for all students and not messy. At the end of the class we put all art on the floor so we could look at all the snails together... the kids love to share their art and I could have stayed in the class sharing art for hours...

After work the heat finally gave in... it has been in the 90s here the last few days and with no A/C that can be a bit nasty. Imagine a classroom filled with 20 kids, 85 degrees and not A/C and you know what I mean. Tomorrow will be loads better with only highs in the 70s.
