Here I blog about school life in an art classroom. I love to report about lessons we do, displays and shows we have, and general education at the elementary level.

Summer Lessons in Art and other Subjects
During the summer I make time about 3 mornings a week to work with students to build and maintain reading skills. It is an effort to prevent the downward "slide" that often happens with so many weeks of down time.
Livi Displays the Alley Cat Painting in the School Garden
Livi came for 3 sessions and she was able to paint 2 medium sized canvases with her favorite subject her own cats Lovely and Junior and another about Alley Cats. She loves this creative time. This year she concentrated only on the art since she had just finished a reading program at a different location. Reading is one of her strengths anyway.
Takes a lot of concentration
This year I worked with 2 students. We had time to be creative together.
