Taking a Break

Thank you for the participation in the Simply Your Best Lesson Share (for substitutes.) So far we have a lot of response and 11 lessons completed and sent and more people who are working to get theirs ready.

Here are some examples. . . in case you need some inspiration to participate.
They are all lessons a substitute could do.

Four Letter Words
Eric Carle inspired Cats!
Trucks and Simple Shapes
Warm and Cool Op Art
Inside Outside House (Architecture)
What Will A Squiggle Become?
Jacob Lawrence Inspired Collage
Collage Robots
Substitute Art Game (you will love this)
Lois Elhert inspired art
Alphabet Soup!

(If I didn't include the lesson you sent me in this list please please please leave me a comment. I have a new gmail account and I'm not used to it yet. Having trouble with the way it organizes the e-mails.) 

While formatting the lessons I needed a break.
Here is a cool riddle.

Which way is this bus traveling? (They say 90% of preschoolers answered correctly) I think I'll have to test that theory though!

The bus is traveling to the left. . . the preschoolers said because the door is on the other side. I say their art teacher never talked about movement in art! Looks like it's parked to me!

Phyl said...

I was going to just say it's traveling FORWARD! But then again, maybe not...

Hi Erica
I'm feeling a bit stupid to have preschoolers get that riddle as I sat and stared at the bus!! Oh well.
I know you got the lesson I sent (4-Letter Words) because we e-mailed about it, but it isn't on the list -- thought I should mention it.

Hope you are having a good day.

Unknown said...

Yes I have it. I updated the post so I can keep MYSELF up to date. They are almost all formatted I'm doing yours next:)

That is hilarious. My husband took one look at it and said it's coming towards you. I'll have to test that riddle out with my students. I want to send you some sub plans and I will do my best to get them worked up for you. Grades are due this week. Thanks for putting the packet together. Marcia
