It is chalk time again!
Since I forgot to restock my chalk supply, I had to be a little creative in my chalking this month!
I pulled out the trusty iPad and started searching for a chalk board app. Guess what? I found one! It's very simple but fun. My kids and I have both enjoyed playing with it today. I have school ideas swirling too! I'm thinking this would be a fun way to practice sight words in the classroom! A new word work tool! I just wish I had more iPads for the classroom!
Take a look at what came out of my "chalk" today!
I didn't have a poem ready for chalking today and when I sat down to write, I wasn't very inspired. Instead, I started drawing and playing around. Here is my first product...a play on Betsy's Chalk-A-Bration button! That white thing down at the bottom? My attempt at a mustache, of course!
Of course, my brain kept leaning toward school. It keeps doing that now that July is almost at a close. Sad but true. Here is my next drawing...I think I will call it a "picture-list" poem. It's a little of each, I think.
During the summer, for me, thoughts of returning to school always turn into thoughts of wanting more vacation time. So...this is where I want to be...
Last, but not least, my almost one-year-old decided that the iPad looked like fun. Here is her very first chalk drawing. Okay, fine, I might have helped her change chalk colors, but the art work is all hers!
