If no one else has mentioned it I wanted to say how much I have been
enjoying Art Attack which I found by accident one day on my satellite TV.
It is broadcast on WAM as two consecutive 15 minute shows. It is made in
England which gives it a charm. It is followed by a similar educational
show called Music Factory for use by music teachers. It is on at 7:00Am
here in the midwest and 1:00 p.m. also.

I have recored several now,
possibly to use when a sub is needed. Each show is fast paced and fun for
elem. kids. The projects are very possible and not overly expensive. I
find that each show has at least one great idea (or more) for a project the
kids could so after viewing the show. I have learned several great tips
myself.

Two recent examples that come to mind are 'blood writing' where they use
a squeeze bottle to write out a word (like for a Halloween spook house)
then tip the posterboard up and let it run a bit - VERY CREEPY AND FUN!
Another ideas was using tape to tape a row of about three markers and
then making a plaid design by going both horizontal and vertical, like a
tartan. Clever!

To me it's helpful things like this that make reading these postings
worthwhile.
