<< I knew I would get blown out of the woods for giving such specific

 in their heads as I went step by step. In the final project, their trees
 didn't all look exactly a like at all. We did look at real trees outside our
 window. It was too cold to go outside in March in PA. They said, Oh, now I
 see. I think it is o.k. to teach some lessons such as this. Then let them
 take this and go with it. These type of lessons are a jumping off point. MJ

Mary Jane - liked your step by step - gives the kids a graceful way of
leaving the
lollipop trees behind. Then when they look at a real tree they will have
that "ahha
experience" and know what and how to do it and be more confident drawing the
trees. Roberta
