this Magritte exhibit in Chicago, my life would be complete.
Husbandman says, "I'd go with you but it feels so surreal." Very funny, Husbandman. Anyway, I know it's impossible, but there has to be a way.
I felt like being creative on Monday so I clicked on this link over on Streibie's blog and just threw caution to the wind and had the kiddos create these pen and watercolor flower paintings. I just put the web site up and ran through the teacher directions with them and then they just went and created the paintings.
Then we wrote I Used to, But Now poems, inspired by the great Kenneth Koch who wrote one of my fave books, Wishes, Lies and Dreams.
After hearing a couple of poems, Thirdlanders got the drift and took off. Some of our fave lines....
I used to be a cub, but now I'm a bear.
I used to be a wall, but now people see me.
I used to jump, but now I swim.
I used to be a literacy coach, but now I'm a teacher.
So Thursday Creativity Share is a wrap. An exhibit I probably won't go to. A painting project. Some poems to write. I used to be blogging, but now I'm going to a faculty meeting. Que Bueno!
