Cosmic Snails

Kindergartners made these adorable snails last week. We are studying the rain forest and I tied the lesson to Henri Matisse paper collage snail. We used blue, red and yellow Model Magic so it turned out to be a lesson in color mixing too. They have such great personality.

We are finally feeling healthier, but all the illnesses took the wind out of my teaching sails. I still love it, but it feels more like a job now. The art teacher I am subbing for is coming back mid May, which is a sad relief. I was hoping to finish out the year, but I'm looking forward to walking Ellie to preschool and meeting friends for lunch at the park. I'll teach again someday, but not until Ellie is older.

Sorry, we are still sick. Almost everyone is on antibiotics and know there is a stomach flu too. I'll post again when we are healthy.

Sooo not an Ant Eater-Horse-Chicken

Hello, my name is Ginnifer. I am a giraffe. I am not an ant eater-horse-chicken.

Occasionally, I sit around doing nothing.

I believe one should always stop to smell the flowers.
I hope to travel the globe someday.

But, I may never be able to, because I am deathly afraid of cats.

When I need some alone time I climb a tree (see I told you I wasn't an ant eater-horse-chicken)
