Let's face it homework isn't usually fun, it's work. This week's homework assignment included some drawing. Now art for homework is fun, so I guess on occasion homework can be fun. My daughter is reading the book Ida B at school. As part of their literature circles the students were asked to draw a character from the chapters they were reading. This is what she drew. It's a girl in Ida's class who always wears a sparkly tee shirt, sparkly fingernails and sparkly barrettes. I love her style of drawing! She makes it look so easy and simple yet with just a few lines and colors it captivates my attention.
I created a little art for homework too. I joined a preschool busy bag swap so I could get busy bags for my classroom. I wanted to create these felt button rings for my classroom and thought they'd be great for the swap. I had to create 20 of the same busy bags to send. It took me forever to sew buttons on and reinforce the buttonholes, but I like the way they turned out. (By the way this picture shows only ten of the twenty chains.)
