Fall Prints

Many teachers fear using paint in their classrooms.
Not me!
I love the challenge of a possible spill,
a smudge on new clothes,
tears when someone thinks she missed her turn,
someone licking his fingers,
an accidental step in a pile of orange paint.
(all of which have happened in my classroom over the years by the way!)

I welcome this because I believe that, in an educational world of testing and drilling, 
children need a creative outlet.
To tell you the truth,  making these apple prints was fun, easy, and super fast.
Then we used it as the border for our fall bulletin board.

The children loved it.  I loved it.
You should pop in to the school and check it out.

  1. That Dallin is a Michaelangelo in the making...of course, I might be a little biased. :)
