I also have to say that for these magazine holders you have to buy the BIG boxes of cereal and yes I feel a bit guilty for buying the HUGE lucky charms and just so Jack doesn't rot all his teeth I have to admit to enjoying a bowl of these sugar filled yummos.
They still need clear contact paper but I now have a great way to store my art magazines!

This was a new project for me I found on http://elementaryartfun.blogspot.com/ I think I joined the rest of the world in the latest Peacock craze. The students started by drawing their birds with chalk on black paper and then started using blue and white paint to create the bodies. I showed them several pictures of peacocks and their feathers but as you can see everyone seemed to have their own idea of how the feathers look and that's the part that I love.

This is a good one or two class project. Since my classes are only 30 min. I usually have the students draw their Jar, then use a wet finger on tempera cakes to make bugs. One finger can be used for butterflies or two fingers if each finger becomes a wing. Also we use our pinkies to make caterpillars. The next week we add the details, eyes antennae, grass. I like that this can be used when you have just finished a long project and want a one/two day project.

A third grade lesson that I just love. The students look at pictures of instruments (in the past I was able to get my hands on real instruments) then they sketch several in their sketchbooks. Then they pick their favorite 3-5 and draw them on a large piece of paper. This year I used the Alpha cakes for painting and just used the glitter touch for spots of bling.
