dear Ann and all...
thanks for the note, all went well today thanks to a switcheroo--the absent
teacher needed other classes covered and the tough 7th grade got a study
hall and I got lucky and got the sweet 6th grade to cover. Next item, yes
I'm on the East Coast, not far from the water need a car to get there but
that's ok, cause on an occassional breezy summer evening you can sniff the
salty breakers...next item... as for murals my school is very big on
bulletin boards...must be stunning... did a rainforest. Kids, 1st grade
drew reptiles, markered them with color, texture, design, cut and pasted
them along side their cut paper foliage, etc, camoflogue like on big sheet
of bulletine paper, color green. We made a cloud, grey, projecting over
head, from a long 6x4x1" styrofoam and hung it over board like a canopy,
from this we hung lots of grey string studded with grey,and faded blue
construction paper cut rain drops. No patterns, each drop was unique, about
1/2 to 1" big. We scotched taped and used some staples to keep drops on
string. The strings swayed, strings were about 3' long, tried to make it as
dense as possible, all this hung in front of the forest, also dense and
colorful Voila, a "real drizzle". Sincerely, Diane
