Look at the pretty lights

Well my 2nd graders were learning about Antarctica. So we made some great looking penguins using texture to make there bodies. And for the background using some chalk pastels to make aurora australis which are the southern lights. My second graders liked using the chalk and watching the video on the southern lights

Honk honk. Who's hungry

Ok everyone a little info about me. Well as you might know I like to cook and I like to try different foods out. One thing I like to do in the summer time is to go food trucking. We have a good number of food trucks in my area. So I though it would be really cool to try and bring that to a project. A few years ago I did the Missouri state soda can design project. And my fourth grader have to study the Missouri state symbols. So we took the same concept as the soda can and applied it to food trucks. First of all my students didn't know that we had food trucks where we lived so know they are on the lookout for them. Plus they thought it was cool that they were going to get make a 3d food truck. Here are a few pictures. I might try to post a few more when we get them done.

I Won....I Really DID...The Premio Dardos Award

Ok.. Well I dont know what I really won, but my bloggy friend Philly over at There's a Dragon in my Art Room gave me this award.  She gave it to me a few weeks ago but it was really hard to pick who to give it to.  Because all the Art Ed. Bloggers are GREAT... So the one fair way was to put all the Blogs into one VERY Large hat and just pick them out of it.. Right? ;)... Anywho... 

I am not sure if any of the people that I have pick have already gotten the Award from someone else so if you did you are double lucky.... b/c you can post the picture twice... hahah

The Premio Dardos award is a virtual award sent as a ‘gift’ from one blogger to another as “recognition for the creativity, effort and dedication” we each put into our blog. The award originated in Spain around 2008-2009 and has been sent from blogger to blogger ever since.


To accept the award, you simply:

  1. Link back to the person who nominated you (which I already did above)
  2. Display the award icon (also above), and
  3. Nominate others whose blogs you admire for these qualities.

1.  The Shapie Woman  She is another blogging buddies that likes to keep me on my toes even if she doesnt have all of hers. :)

2.  Rainbow Skies and Dragonflies  First of all who doesnt love rainbow skies and dragonfies... plus she has alot of great stuff going on over there.
