Play practice, play practice, play practice.
Here is a picture of the beginnings of our background for Pinocchio
That's pretty much ALL we did.
It was exhausting and I learned that even grades 5 and 6's go crazy when their regular schedules are disrupted. And since they went crazy I also did.
Here's to hoping our nearly normal routine for next week puts as all in a better mood!
The play was Thursday afternoon and evening which meant that Friday we could begin our regular schedule again.
I was REALLY looking forward to a peaceful art period at the end of the day but my students quickly splattered some paint on their pages and were done.
I was too into doing my own that I didn't see what they ended up with... I have a feeling I'm going to be a little disappointed in what they accomplished - mostly because the drawing of these took us 2 weeks to get done.
I stayed after school to finish mine since I had the paints all out anyways. I think I over diluted the water colours... next time I'll add less water and see if the colours are a little more vibrant.
