Kids love to draw and doodle on things. I can't blame them because I do the same thing.
Sometimes it's something as simple as a little stick figure saying "Hola," and other times it's detailed illustrations of your plans of becoming an astronaut and interacting with aliens when you grow up.
Somehow I think I forgot to mention the role that my boyfriend and I played in the Fall Carnival. We manned the face painting booth all night. And since we're super brave, we attempted to paint whatever the kids requested. Naturally, I made kids pose for some photos because I was proud of my quality work. Jerry didn't do that...he did mention having to paint several fox faces, I'm not sure what that was about.
Below we have the kid that started the "I want a mask around my eyes" trend, one of my better flowers, and a dragon (I resisted the urge to paint Trogdor). On the right you'll see Dora (that one threw me for a loop) as well as my best rendition of a zombie.
Casually mention that geese freak you out because you were once chased by one as a child and what happens? A second grade girl draws you a picture of "Queen Goosey".
On Halloween we had a character dress up day so that students and staff could dress up like a character from a book. I decided to come as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter (specifically Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban based on my Time Turner necklace). This did result in me yelling at a few kids who claimed to not like Harry Potter despite never having read it.
On the left are some of my kindergarten kids with their Day of the Dead skull masks that we made.
And on the right, all I have to say is, "Miss Black, wait! I've got a note for you!"
I hung this one up despite the spelling error. I figure she either loves Spanish or spinach and either one is good for her. Besides, how would I be the best teacher in the whole wid world if I didn't hang it up?
