I joined the world of Substitute teacher at the sweetest little Elementary school in Littlefield, AZ. Crossing the state line, dark and early this morning, arriving at my destination a few minutes early to relax, breath and process the concept of going back into the classroom after leaving my full time career, exactly one year ago. I could go on, and on, and on about teaching for 21 years in the public and charter schools in Las Vegas, NV. But I will save those tales for another day, or perhaps that could be a whole blog just in itself! Either way, I landed in a second grade classroom (I was an Art Specialist!!!), with the cutest, sweetest, most energetic children. The teacher did not leave the greatest lesson plans for the day. (First year teachers have a few difficulties with the OVER load of work that comes along with being a teacher these days). With administration approval, I was able to create my own ART MATH lesson! We talked about all kinds of shapes and sizes. They drew cut, glue and assembled Math today. Not one child would leave their project! But they did give me permission to photo their creations. Deegan (a very special student), asked me to take photo of this art work, because someday he is going to be Artist. Well, Deegan from what I see here, YOU my friend are well on your way!
Going back on Thursday for more second grade fun! Taking glitter this time with some print making items!
Hope everyone had a FABULOUS day!
