Youth Art Month



OK, sometimes I crack myself up.  My lesson for the kindergarten students was that we looked at "Where the Wild Things Are" and then we created our own wild things.  As I assembled them into a monster island, similar to that that in the book, I got the idea that it was Youth Art Month, and that there was an opportunity for advertisement here.  My students had no idea that I would use their wild things to create my Youth Art Month display, but I don't think they'll mind. I created the signs in the hands of the wild things, along with the backdrop for all of the Wild Things.  They were just delighted to get to dig into the wiggly eye box.
