Last week..............


OUR  CREATION!!!!!!  
my grandson,Titus and I, worked on his project which was turned in today. He had to do a report on an insect..he chose the WALKINGSTICK.All the kids were given a paperbag,which had to be utilized in the making of their insect. My husband came up with the idea of wrapping it around a stick!! So,we used trusty  distress ink stain to stain the white paper bag..wrapped with glue around the stick and twisted and twisted..glue all over our hands!! Then, picked out sticks to make the legs..this required the most "HELP" as the stick had to be glued to the body then wrapped with paper and glue to make it more secure!! wire on head for antenna and more paper wrapped around it!!.. put it on a branch..there is his project!!! .He took it to school today..branch with walkingstick on it..,along with his written report ! He was very proud..and according to my husband,who took him...everyone who saw it thought it was awesome!!
Thanks for visiting!! hugs!!

I'll give his bitch , sloth of a teacher a copy of this!!!you are an artist and gave it an A+..so she'd better do the same! you can tell i can't stand this woman! she's late getting to class,late letting them out...she also has forgotten what 1st graders are like! Titus has his own "issues" and despite multiple conferences with her,the principle and other teachers,school psychologist and speech therapist..she "doesn't get it" and has not implemented any of the teaching methods suggested by the "multi-disiplinary team"..just too much work for her. there are only 22 kids in the class,i kid has a "helper" and she has a parent helper almost every day. My mom would roll over in her grave!!..she had 34 kids(2nd and 3rd grades she taught at different times)..never had anyone else in the classroom but her! Now..THAT'S A TEACHER..A TRUE EDUCATOR! Titus's teacher just seems to be "putting in her time"! aaarrrggghhh.I just despise this woman! ok..I've vented!! So hard not to let Titus know what we think of her..but we can't 'cause that would not be a good thing!! He likes her...ICK!!! xoxo
