Starting next week, Tatum’s and my fun day will be moved to Tuesday. The big reason? Show ‘n’ tell takes place EVERY Friday. How can I deny my child a chance to bring in her fabulous stories accompanying some showcased item? I couldn’t live with myself. Monday is PE, Wed is music, and Thursday is chapel, so Tuesday seemed perfect. Notice, I’m not focused so much on her academics. (she gets enough of that with mom and me). Socially, she could benefit from the showing and telling, connecting with her classmates. Especially since she leaves at noon each day, whereas the other students stay till 3:00.
So, with that, we decided to hit the art cart, add a little salt to our project, and we have a winner. Salt, you ask? Well, first, we read the wonderful You be You book. It’s full of colorful various fish, no one alike.
We took a black pastel and drew a fish! (on watercolor paper)
Then it was time to paint the water with watercolors
We sprinkled salt to get that ocean effect
She pointed out that she drew this puffer fish.
Here he is! Colorful, isn’t it?
Now a quick bit of homework. Take your time Tot. She likes to rush!
Do your best we always say!
Now, it’s off to see Grant. She adores him.
Bonus: I get to whirl around as well. She starts with her hands up, then..
I love being with you, Tot!
