Things are just about ready here at school! I just had a parent drop off these magazines, which is so wonderful. Art teachers out there, send out an email or put a blurb in your weekly reading about magazines for picture references and collage. I have found that any cooking magazine, gardening magazines, and architectural magazines work the best because there are very limited amounts of inappropriate content. There is nothing worse than a fifth grader flashing around an ad for bras to the entire class. You don’t find as many of those distractions in these types of magazines.
I also finished a couple last bulletin boards today and just need to prep what I am actually going to say to the kids on the first day!
