A few weeks ago, James said to me, "Mommy, I'm not homeschooled any more."
I was pretty surprised by this news, and asked him why he thought this.
His answer, "because we haven't made any art in such a long time."
He was right. It had been a while. ( "such a long time" to a 4 year old is a week) We'd been sick and I hadn't really felt like breaking out the art supplies and doing any projects. But, given that my son's education was clearly at stake, I decided it was time to get back to work.
Here are some of the things we've been working on:
We do a lot of painting
We practice cutting and pasting. James cut out the leaves for this tree.
Another cutting project. This one led by Ginger. It incorporates 2 of James great loves: scissors and tape.
A Spooky Halloween picture by James. Title: Owls in a Tree
More drawing. We like to draw construction vehicles.
A most favorite thing to do is draw with Daddy
Who knew this English teacher would turn into an art teacher?
