K Textured Pumpkin Painting


To get into the Thanksgiving spirit, I made textured pumpkin painting with my Kindergarten. First we used observational drawing to just practice drawing a pumpkin. Next class we made our textured painted paper. Our last class we cut out our pumpkins and decorated them.

old turned new



Thanks to Miss Tabarcea's great inspirations, I can continue to be a more sustainable classroom teacher by recycling old crayons. At the end of the last school year I was torn, what to do with all my old crayons??? Keep them....she said....and so I did. With the help of some dessert bar baking trays ($10 at Walmart) I made old crayons new. Arrange colors as desired and back for 20-30 min on 250.
