I am so excited to attend the Florida Art Education Association annual conference in Daytona Beach! I have my schedule planned out. I have my beach attire selected for the Fun in the Sun Beach Bash, I also have the art room ready for my absence and a guest teacher!
I hardly ever take a sick day, or a personal day because I dread planning for a guest teacher. I always wonder if I will have explained lessons in an effective way. Have I thought of all the things that my guest teacher will need? It is a little easier to plan when it is an advanced plan, like for the conference. I found some great lesson ideas on PInterest that I modified for my students. Kindergarten through second grade will be creating monochromatic drawings based on Harold and the Purple Crayon. I put together boxes of materials with one colorin a variety of hues. Students will review a variety of lines with the book. Third through fifth grade will be creating a design for a paper cube and use line art from a Mayan art coloring book as inspiration as a tie in to Hispanic Heritage Month.

This is just a shot of the work in progress cabinets. I hang an exemplary student work from each class here. I know there isn't anything hanging on my fourth grade section, they are currently working on Puerto Rican carnival masks in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
This is just a random sweater that was left in the art room. It's been on every counter in the room. I found a coat hanger in the supply closet and hung it with a note. I hope someone helps this poor sweater find it's owner.
I can't wait to update you on what I learn at the conference, and to have some after pictures of the room.
