One More Seuss...

I just couldn't resist sharing just one more Seuss activity that we did. It turned out AWESOME and the students just LOVED it!

My art teacher made these with the fifth graders in art class and displayed them in the library. I took one look and said WE are so going to make those!

And we did! Check them out...

They were pretty easy.

We took an unsharpened pencil and colored strips with a black permanent marker. Then, we took yarn and wrapped it around a small rectangle of cardboard. I tied it off tightly with a small piece of the same color yarn. I made one cut to cut it off the cardboard. I hot glued the yarn to the top of the pencil. Finally, students mounted in a piece of playdough.

Waalaah! We had our very own Truffula trees.

Here's one more look...

  7. Negligible scratches - I'm supposing executioner on the divider or maybe a vivacious session of pretenses. I called the landowner, who not at all like the genuine Lord, did not accept my call. He clearly did not welcome the gravity of the circumstance - that, or he realized that his agreement secured him if I show at least a bit of kindness assault on the premises.

  9. Maybe this is on the grounds that they expect a ton of issues with the renegotiating procedure. The truth is, dealerships will regularly give you a high APR. When you glance around on the web for auto renegotiating administrations, you will rapidly discover that these administrations offer APRs that are path lower than what the merchant has offered you.
