Speaking of neckties. I have a box of real ones in need of a good project.
ANY IDEAS. I can't seem to throw anything away. Mary

This was not a class "ART" project, but near Thanksgiving this year, our 4th
grade teacher took brown construction paper and made a huge turkey
body(roundish, around 15 inches in diameter) with head/beak/red wiggley
thing), and stapled this to her bulletin board. Then she stapled a ton of
ties radiating from it like colorful feathers. Perhaps each student could
design their own patterned neckties (with your stash as "inspiration" for
each individual's pattern...look at those textures, too!), cut them out and
one could make a Turkey display of one class and their pattern lesson
results. THEN/OR maybe the students could use their cuttout tie (feather)
and use it for this idea I saw (somewhere) for a Father's Day card that opens
in the middle (like a mans suit coat) to reveal the entire dress shirt (sans
arms, just a collar, a couple of buttons) below the TIE (which has been glued
at the "knot" so as to blow)! A personal message could be written inside,
like, oh, say, Happy FAther's Day Dad....love, ME. (wait, better get a name,
if you have to GRADE them!)
Just an idea or two. I am thinking of you.
