well, it's too hot today to do anything else so i'm responding to messages
i'd normally leave for someone else : ))
(i teach k-6). my first thought is: do all the kids have art every year? the
reason i ask is because in our district only 7th and 8th are in MS and they
may or may not have art - it's an elective. i guess my answer would be, if
all the kids have art every year, it would be easiest to divide your 7/8
curriculum into thirds and start it early. if they DON'T all have art -
yikes! that's too much for my brain in this heat!

dust everywhere, and i'm living in my bedroom, the backyard, and a recliner
in the spare bedroom for a couple of months!)

This year, I will have 6, 7 and 8 for only 6 weeks....any suggestions? Do I
move some of 7th grade curriculum down to 6th....leaving more room for 7th
and so forth. Or do I come up with new 6th grade stuff...and cram 7th and
8th grade in?
