In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
I'm subbing again today at the school I retired from. On display are salt and flour maps made by the 2nd graders during their study of landforms. When I taught 3rd grade, I loved making salt & flour maps of the 50 states with my kids. It is a great hands-on project that kids never forget!
