I recently attended a training given by my Fine Arts supervisor, Mrs. Judy Nunneley. In the class we cut out various words from magazines and newspapers and then were challenged to come up with an autobiographical poem with the words. This was both challenging and engaging. I plan on using this with my fifth graders during the second semester. Here is my final poem:

Kinder students worked together to create basic color wheels with magazine pictures and words. They sorted the clippings by color and practiced using glue sticks to attach them to paper plates.

Since one of my favorite hobbies is reading and I consider myself a "book lover," I wanted to share this great article from http://www.parents.com/ about How to Raise a Book Lover. I still remember my parents taking my sister and me to the bookstore on a regular basis when we were kids to buy our favorite book series. For my older sister, it was The Baby-sitters Club. For me, being the little sister, it was The Baby-sitters Little Sister. I am pretty sure I still have those books at my parents' house somewhere.
