We had so much fun making art this week! I cannot take credit for this art project...I got it from my wonderful next door teaching neighbor, Mrs. Bell.

My class this year is SO artistic, and I am so proud of how neatly they print. It really does make life a whole lot easier. Now, if they could just perfect their self-control, we would be GOLDEN! (Can I get an AMEN??)
We made a magic oval (cut the big corners and then the baby corners) out of a rectangle and then used our *RULERS* to draw straight lines that were equi-distant apart. Wow, did they feel FANCY using their rulers. It was so cute! After drawing the lines, they cut the pumpkin apart and then had to glue it back together like a puzzle. This part was TRICKY, but they all pulled it out in the end! Here they are...
