WHOA! Where did March go?! I didn't realize that I had not posted in WEEKS. This month has blown by. Our 5th grade production is in less than two weeks and that has taken up A LOT of extra time - not to mention I was brilliant and decided to do clay this month with all 800 or so of my students! As my 95 year old grandma would say, 'GoodNITE'.
So, I have mentioned, many times, our 5th grade production. In addition to teaching 6 classes everyday - every Tuesday morning for the last couple of months I have about 25 students that come to my room during my normal 'prep' time and have SET DESIGN class. We have been busy painting and building set pieces for the show. The truffula trees are complete, the background is ALMOST done, and the building we need for the last scene was started this last week. I am blessed to be able to do set design work at my job - as I was a technical theatre major for a short time in college and have worked in the scene shop building sets all through high school and college. Though, as much as I do love it - I am ready for the show to be here and done! I really would like my room back - it is a DISASTER!
As far as all my other classes, they have all been building and glazing their clay masterpieces. Here is the breakdown - (individual posts about each project to come)
