I know I've got a lot going on right now, and I really don't have time for this, but somehow I get an idea, and I just can't let it go. It turns out that maybe having something "fun" to look forward to makes it easier to "get through" all of the other stuff on my list.
So, here's the project: Finding Architectural Alphabet Letters around school.
I took some examples in to show the kids what we were looking for ( the letter B in the entryway door, for example). Then, each student chose a capital or a lower case letter of the alphabet to find. I've been going in at recess to have the kids point out their letter so we can photograph it. We have been having so much fun! The teachers have been assigned letters too. Currently, we have are on "all out search mode" for the letters: a, and R.
Capital Q on a post in the playground
Xavier found and X on the bottom of his chair
Lower case i in the flagpole
Capital V in the roof of the playground building
Peter found a P in the slide
I have plans to edit all of my images in a sepia tone and create a message board of sorts. I'll be so excited to share the finished project!
