Last week we had an adventure with Harold and his Purple Crayon. The kids were both very excited for this unit. We didn’t get as many crayon techniques in as I had wanted so this week we are finishing up a few of those- like resist and a few others and doing some 3Rs. Grandparents arrive on Thursday so it will be a short week anyhow- not to mention that it is spring break for the area schools. The weather is fantastic this week (which is not the norm for most breaks around here) and Wednesday afternoon we are having some friends over to play.
In addition to all the art, we also talked about puns and used a few for their copywork.
Here’s a funny…as I was making a dinner today of chicken pot pie, the kids were chatting about Harold and his love for pies. I-5 wonders out loud, “I wonder if he likes chicken pot?” As in chicken pot pie but said as if asking if someone at Thanksgiving prefers apple or pumpkin when referring to the pie offerings!
