I must be insane.
It is taking FOREVER for the 5th grade kiddos to finish their Laurel Burch style papier-mache "fantastic felines", but I thought I'd show you a few that are almost done. I should have a bunch more to show you next week. I'm loving Olivia's glamorous kitty on the left above, and the one on the right, proudly built by a sweet Down syndrome child, has personality plus.
And Chelsea's cat has the most gorgeous whiskers, and I think it will be getting a jeweled collar. The dots that are all over its body have sparkly (with glitter-glue) outlines.
And here's a couple of views of Colton's dramatic black, white, and gold cat. He hasn't done the facial features yet.
So why am I insane? Because, with the cats still filling my cabinets and counter-tops, and the 6th grade Darumas all still in the art room, today my 3rd graders starting the armature for THEIR papier-mache project. Can you guess what they will be? (answer below the photo)
No, not robots, not rocket ships. They are going to become garden gnomes! (they don't have arms added on as of yet) and the kids are very excited. Yeah to my custodian who left me a carton filled wit Gatorade bottles.
Meanwhile, things are INSANE in my school this week, as some jobs cuts were made public and nobody is happy.
