The butterfly your children made is beautiful! How did you get the white writing (2003) on the ground? Paint?

I also like the woodcuts, and especially like the self-portraits in different painting styles!

Hi Susan,
I think I knew from your very first post that you and I are on the same
wavelength. I'm "doing Japan" with all my classes. I always teach that
way. It keeps me organized and sane. First they all saw an excellent movie
on Japan called "A Kids View of Japan." Kristi Yamaguchi (Olympics skater)
is narrator. So far my first graders are painting fish kites, seconds are
making a family of origami swans on a paper pond, thirds - fake food,
fourths - scrolls of favorite natural places they've visited, and soon my
fifths will be doing lino-cut fish prints.
I would dearly love to visit you and your Japan stuff in Long Island. Maybe
some weekend my husband and daughter and I could come. I'm not a bit
adventurous about driving or I would come by myself. My uncle and his
family used to live in Westbury Long Island but I have never been there.
I also wish I could go to the conference in Denver. Wow! Denver! That
sounds so cool. I'm really out of sync with people my age. I am 51 and
have a six year old. Oh well... it's loads of fun - she lost two front
teeth last weekend.
I will try my best to get to the conference - maybe hook up with someone on
the list.
I do have quite a nice collection of things Japanese. I taught this unit
six years ago. But occasionally I have questions that perhaps you could
