Ll Is For Lion!

Hi all!  I thought I would do a SUPER short post of a craft that we did for the letter Ll yesterday.  You know when you have those brainstorms the morning of???!!!  Well this is what it turned into. :) 
We used a large and a small paper plate as tracers for the face & mane.
The letter L is the nose.

Thanks for Looking at our Lovely Ll Lion!

We Have Dreams Like Martin Luther King...

Today was a bit of a crazy day! We worked on a massive, or at least it seemed massive, MLK, Jr. project. Every kid worked at different paces, so it seemed like they all needed something different from me all at the same time. I will say, though, that they turned out super cute and the chaos was totally worth it!

Each Smart Tart illustrated their personal dream for the world. Then they drew themselves with their eyes shut as if they were dreaming. The pièce de résistance was their rough and final draft writing piece that described their dream.... rough drafts were in pencil and final draft or in marker. I stapled the final draft on top of the rough draft, so that anyone reading it on the wall can see how their work went through the writing process. It was a doozy! The kids worked really hard, and Ooooooh how proud they were of their creations!

Here are some examples:
My dream for the world is..

"People stop fighting."
"Everyone can eat food."
"Picking up trash to save the world."
"Giving flowers to people."
"All animals have fresh water."

We Haven't Seen Any Turkeys Around These Parts, Farmer.... **Wink, Wink, Shhhhh!**

We don't want that old turkey farmer finding our feathery beasts!  We had to do something to save them from being this year's Thanksgiving dinner....
 Duh, Duh, Duh, Duhhhhh... Duh Duh Duh....
Indiana Jones has discovered how to 
stay away from the dinner table!
This BIG HERO is sure to save Thanksgiving Day for the turkeys!
These 2 ballerinas will put the farmer into a TAILspin!
This skeleton is sure to give a fright
To the farmer on Thanksgiving night!
We love turkeys. Yes we do! We love turkeys. How 'bout YOU!?
You won't catch a turtle eating turkeys for Thanksgiving!
 Turkeys won't be KRABBY PATTIES with SpongeBob around!
 "Meow" we don't see any turkeys around here!
 Make potatoes, NOT TURKEYS! 
Peace, Love, Turkeys!
The kindergarten Smart Tarts families have really outdone themselves this year!
