December Chalk-a-Bration!

It's time to join Betsy at Teaching Young Writers for another Chalk-a-Bration!  Quick, grab your chalk and let the poetry dust fly!

It's hard to believe that it's time to break out the chalk again!  Since it's pretty snowy and icy here in Michigan, I used my iPad for chalking this time around.

And three out of four of my children also got in on the chalk action!

Maddie is five and is still convinced that people should look like this!  We're still working on it...

Avery is only two so we will just call this "abstract art."

Matthew, who is 10, used the iPad also but his is a doodle board app instead of a chalk board app.  I just love this picture of Matthew and Dad having a light saber fight!
Emma was too busy using her new Kindle Fire to participate...maybe in January the newness will have worn off and she will be able to join in the chalk fun!  :)


  1. I love how your children got into the chalk-a-bration. I think Maddie used me as her model!

  2. Love it, Robin! We like that Doodle ap too! Thanks for the chalking-more in 2014!

  3. Love all the little helpers contributions! Putting away Christmas is like a tradition all on its own. Not as much fun but sometimes nice to get things back in order. Happy New Year!
