This morning I snagged a job at WMS. It wasn't a bad day, and the kids know me, so I didn't have any problems behavior-wise. Plans were less than perfect, though. I ended up putting on a show for a couple classes that finished their work early. I used the document camera. I started by showing them the pictures in our coloring books, and then finished by drawing requests. I amazed the kids with what I could draw. Privately, I was a little amazed myself. Still, they were more than forgiving or minor mistakes for the simple fact that I drew their pictures right in front of them. I am a little better with a pen and paper than I am with a dry erase marker, so document cameras make the work more fun. So, yeah, it was fun for them to call out a request and I would draw it right in front of them.
I then went to the local office store a made 1400 copies. I printed some Transportation Coloring Books and, of course, the Animal coloring book. I think we will have a long weekend binding them. We'll bind some this week, too, but honestly, I was on my feet for an hour and a half copying these. I need a rest.
Here is a photo to whet your appetite.
