I said I would send information on sketchbooks as I got it.
Betsy sent this to me.
Hi Jackie, I do not have pictures of our sketchbooks, but did
grades 3-6 last year. We used 9x12 white drawing paper for the
and folded zerox paper for the pages ( tight budget). Then used
three hole punch and yarn to complete- they could decorate the
they wished. I am writing to tell you of some of the problems I
didn't let the sketchbooks leave the room unless they were
absent for a
lesson,( most of the kids would forget to bring them back- I
them once a week) so I had to keep track of all of these
had them bundled by class, but it was a Royal pain in the behind
Way too many!!! For me, if someone mandated that I do these,
considering the logistics of each teachers room, numb ber of
would be unnerved. I will still be doing sketchbooks, but ONLY
and I am already sweating about where I am going to keep them..
wanted you to know my thoughts.
<What do you have
your lower elementary students do in sketchbooks.>
We would use them to sketch ideas for our work, sketch
other artists work, or simble assignments such as hand, shoe,
