I shared with one of my first grade classes that I wouldn’t be seeing them next class, because of my traveling to the National Art Ed Convention. I just told them quickly as they were leaving class, and their classroom teacher overheard me when she arrived to pick them up. I thought that was it, and that maybe I’d talk to them about my trip when I saw them the week after.
When I landed in San Diego, I was greeted with a number of emails….one being from this particular classroom teacher. She shared with me an activity they do during their morning meetings. It’s a memory game called Grandma’s trunk. You have to repeat what your neighbor has packed before you can put an item in the trunk. This Thursday it became Miss Hayes’ trunk! I think they did a great job packing for me, AND I wish I had brought tons of paints, paintbrushes, and a basket of art supplies with me!
I also can’t resist a reason to make a wordle!
