|OK, I just think this is the cleverest solution to the "Beautiful OOPS" project|
described below--this tiger is just TOO cute!!
Check out the post below to see how it was made...
This one was from my mentor teacher, Meagan Read, at Riddle Brook Elementary School, but she may have found it here.
|Oops, a little glare on the reproduction in the middle...|
This display used two bulletin boards. This is display #1.
|Display #2. Each second grade class had a vase of flowers.|
My mentor teacher did this project with grade 1, this was done with grade 2,
but I think it could be done with a variety of grade levels.

The "table" is dollar store contact paper--easy!!
This one was from my mentor teacher, Meagan Read, at Riddle Brook Elementary School
- Table 1: tear or cut a scrap of warm colored paper and glue to your background paper (up to 2 times).
- Table 2: tear or cut a scrap of newspaper and glue to your background paper (up to 2 times).
- Table 3: tear or cut a scrap of cool colored paper and glue to your background paper (up to 2 times).
- Table 4: Dip the side of a cardboard scrap into paint and stamp onto paper to make a line (up to 6 times)
- Table 5: Dip a mug into paint and stamp onto paper to make a ring (up to 3 times)
- Table 6: Write your name on your background paper and then trace a circle tracer onto your background paper and cut it out (make a hole in your paper--1 time).
The next week, we looked at the book again and discussed how we could turn mistakes into masterpieces. Students then used markers and crayons (and imagination and innovation) to transform their mistakes into wonderful art.

|"The Big Monster:" |
This is me, the big monster.
I like to roar--it's fun.
I am roaring now.
The rain is in the trees and (dropping?) from the tree.

Backstory for this post:
So, it's been a busy Spring for me since I finished student teacherin' in December--I subbed a bit in preschool, kindergarten, elementary and high school and then landed a wonderful 6 1/2 weeks long-term sub gig at an elementary school nearby teaching art to grades K-5. What a blast I had--the students and staff at Fairgrounds rock and I was sad to go (it's hard to stop doing something you love when your next big thing isn't settled upon yet). Since then, I haven't blogged much because I've been daily subbing and working on my dang art teacher portfolio (more on that in a future post or ten). Check the sidebar (over on the right side of the blog) for other posts in this series (k-5 at Fairgrounds Elementary School). ENJOY!!
