I can't take any credit for this idea. I saw it a while back BP (Before Pinterest) and now I can't find the teacher's website who had a great monster painted on a commercial sweeper.
If you know, send me a message.
I painted this over the summer and it is great to see students get excited to clean. I find a student that needs a job and say quietly, "Hey, you wanna be our monster sweeper today?" They often pick a partner to help. I should have come up with something like this for
my own kids when they were young!

I got this idea from http://mrspicassosartroom.blogspot.com I numbered the stools at each table to match a robot job. To give each student a chance at a new job I velcro'd the numbers to the robot jobs so I can move the numbers around. So far it is helping to keep students in their seats plus they seem to love having a table responsibility.

The 8th grade students started a unit on color theory by creating a 4" square design with a 1/4" border. The designs were copied x 8 then painted to show complimentary, analagous, warm, cool, black white, etc... Then they took their design on a double slab of clay and cut out their design on one slab and attached it to the other slab to create the raised tile. I wish I had a close up of the tiles to show the dimension. The tiles were arranged and mounted to wood and hang in the office. One of my favorite all time projects!
