My little artists are amazing!!...3rd grade line drawings/warm and cool colors..

I found this image online - I think it's from Anthropologie....(love that store) and I knew my kiddos could draw it. I was totally impressed by the amount of time, effort and focus they put into this project. Below is  a link to my web albums  - unfortunately I didn't separate them by classes so both classes are combined...here's just a few -

Author/Photographer Patrick Talley

Hi all! Patrick Talley has been working with our 4th and 5th graders to publish 2 of his children's books that our kiddos will be illustrating. He is an author of several parenting books as well as an amazing photographer. This is a link to his website where you can get his books for a very good price or you can always buy them through Amazon, etc.

Here is a link to his website -


A sneak peek at our book project...


Elizabeth, who is not a saint...

We love this book!...teaches us that we are who we are - sometimes though, we need to follow some rules and guidelines in order to tame our wonderful spirit that God blessed us with. In class, we drew Elizabeth (and Jack) and talked about how it is important to follow these guidelines in order to be the person that God made us to be!!

Congratulations to our SMCS Rodeo Art winners!!
