What we have been doing the past week.....

Due to our 2 days of fall break on Monday and Tuesday last week, I just finished up with a weeks worth of lessons on the Elements of Art - Lines. We really had so much fun with this lesson.Now...some of you may know that I serve Gifted/Talented students at 3 different schools in my district. I have a total of 58 students that I serve on a weekly basis. Each day I pull a group of students out of the regular education classroom to my classroom to receive services for 6 hours per week.

Here is the anchor chart that I created with the help of the students. Now mine isn't as pretty as a lot of the anchor charts that I see all over Pinterest and blog land....but at least it did the trick for the students.

Once we had the lesson and discussed the different types of lines, the students were instructed to make a name tag and decorate it with lines .... and color of course....everyone knows that Mrs. Bibb....love color!! Take a look.........at them while they were working.   OK...that didn't work. I can't seem to figure out how to keep my "masking" of students' faces on when I paste into my blog...will have to do more research on this. If you know how to do this....please leave me a comment and tell me how!

OK....here are some of the student name tags after they finished. All of these students are at one school....but there are several age groups represented here.

Here are a few close ups.

After doing this lesson with my students this past week, I find out at lunch time today that one of my other principals wanted me to go to a professional development tomorrow (October 17) that is being put on by the MS Arts Council....want to guess what part of the professional development is going to be about......you guessed it....Elements of Art. Well it also will be talking about using core curriculum with integrating art in to lesson plans. This should definitely be an interesting day tomorrow.

I will let you know how the PD goes after I get back.....maybe Thursday (not going to promise I will blog tomorrow night!)

OK...I am really tired...so I'm off to beddy bye now!!!
