I have been teaching art to the students at my children’s school going on four years (with a small maternity break somewhere in there). Sometimes ideas for this class come quickly, with ease. Other times, I’m pushing it to the limit to come up with a project that is educational, fun, and simple to prepare. So, I thought I’d share a few links to show you where I get most of my ideas. Yeah, I know I’m a copycat…..but, in this case, I’ve got no shame in that!

Art teacher, Kathy, from California, shares many ideas and pictures of various art projects she’s completed with her students. I love this site so much that most of my lessons from last year came from Kathy’s brain.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
The pictures are captivating and the writing is easily memorized because of it’s rhythm. We love Bill Martin and Eric Carle.
In the mood for a challenge?
Try one of these.
I’ve been thinking about this lately but I’m not sure how much thought my husband has given to the subject. It would be a good way to save money, though….that might win him over!
Any thoughts, Damon?
It’s been raining alot here lately. This is what we’ve been doing since we’re stuck inside.
No, I have no pictures of me attempting this feat. Are you kidding?
