This morning we tackled a project that got us all giggling!
We began with a book, which is how so many of our projects start. The children were dazzled and serenaded by Mrs. Beliveau's melodic and oh so sweet voice as she sang the book I Know an Old Lady.
Then the boys and girls dusted the cobwebs off their fine-motor skills and the creativity started flowing! They got to work creating their own old ladies!
Several scissor snips and glue globs later, we had 15 old ladies who had suddenly joined our class. They're definitely eating some strange things though ...

(1) birthday cake, (2) snake, and (3) Christmas tree.
This project gave Mrs. Beliveau an opportunity to get to know the boys and girls better. She got an extra peek at the children's abilities to follow directions, cut, print, and glue, as well as several other work habits, such as perseverance, problem-solving and time management.
Pop by our hall bulletin board to see what these hungry ol' gals are eating! You won't be disappointed!
|NOT the old lady in question ...|
