Friday's Five Pics

Here are my Five random pictures from today.

This first picture is my snack after a long week. Friday night I drink a glass of Moscato and eat some Trefoil GS cookies. It is the perfect treat after a long work week.

 This is a picture of my 2nd grade students make Wayne Thiebaud inspired pop art gumball machines. I got this idea from the blog, Sue Pelletier Laugh * Paint. My students love painting and they really enjoyed making these paintings.

This is a picture of some pink flowers that grow outside my home. My daughter is a real girly girl and loves the color pink. She is so in LOVE with these flowers and even gave a bouquet to her teacher.

This is my empty bulletin board the I need to complete. I have no good ideas right now, but hopefully will come up with an idea by Monday.
 This is a picture of my 3rd grade students doing op art. This one of my student's finished projects. I got the idea and directions from Art with Mrs. Brown. Her site is awesome and includes great ideas with some of her powerpoints.

Let's Get Acquainted - Skittles Game

The Skittles Game 

Red- Favorite Ice Cream Flavor Mint chocolate chip ice cream, I have loved this flavor since I was little. It started because my favorite color is green, so I had to try the green ice cream. Ever since trying it, I have LOVED it !

 Orange - Favorite Memory from College
In college my roommate and I would go on road trips with very little money. We had the most fun and I have lasting memories of all these crazy trips. We went to Atlanta, GA, Myrtle Beach, SC, and some beach in Mississippi, besides the endless trips back to Detroit.

  Yellow- Favorite Sports Team I like to watch basketball, so my favorite team is the Detroit Pistons. I have to stick with my hometown favorite : )

 Green - Favorite Fast Food Place My favorite fast food place is Zaxbys. I love the fried chicken house zalad with honey french dressing, so GOOOOOD!!!!

Purple - Wild Card (Tell anything about yourself)
I have always wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle.  I think this bike is the perfect choice, what do you think?

Pinspired Birds

In honor of spring, my classes have been doing art projects with birds.
The 2nd graders made birdhouse collages, then sponge painted their birds. I saw this project on a pin that came from a Flickr photo.
Here are a few of my favorites:

The 5th graders have been making Angry Bird pop art projects. The kids really enjoyed getting a chance to draw Angry Birds, especially the boys. I first got the idea from a pin I saw from Artsonia.
Take a look at some of their artwork. I found a cool game and handout on  Expressive monkey and the students used this as a guide for making the Angry Birds. We then added a contrasting background using black and 1 or 2 other colors of construction paper.

Here's my favorite one, hers is so creative and cute! I love how she took some artistic freedom on her version of her angry bird.
