I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
Last week we studied flies. Not a lot of drawing or crafting opportunities to enrich the text there. We did some "complete the drawing" and some coloring. In art, we explored shading with another good lesson from artprojectsforkids.org
Even though my little class ranges in age from 5 years to 6th grade, we get along well. I am constantly impressed with how well our 5-year-old keeps up in art. You can see which picture is his and you can also see what a great job he did. We also had a guest artist-our senior art teacher sat in. Mrs. B-H did the first picture in this series. Daughter W. did the last one.
