Artisitic free expression
What better way to spend the last day of the school year than painting self portraits outdoors? When the students finished I told them that they needed to paint one more thing. They all looked at their paintings for missing arms, legs, fingers, and said, "What?" I said, "My legs!" They laughed and had so much fun. I giggled and they giggled and we made some wonderful memories.
Picnic and graduation in the park tomorrow, then summer camp for some until Aug. 6th.

You look like a great sport for these kids!!!! Soon you can have free time too!
You can't imagine! I am counting the hours. After 12:00 p.m. tomorrow, I am a free woman.
Love the colors. You're a living painting!
I wish you had been my teacher. Two words: You rock!
I am a colorful, with or without paint. Ha-Ha
Thank you. I believe in experiential learning. And I do have fun teaching. Bill says I am like the Pied Piper of kids (wherever I go). My students always have a huge adjustment to KG, because KG is the new first grade, which is worng on so many levels. Although all of the KG teachers say they can tell Ms. Linda's kids, they are so smart, eager to learn and well-behaved. And I do it all with fun learning experiences.
I'm with Lisa! You DO Rock! :)
Thanks Becky. It's all over now! Whew!
