just let them color!

by karen #1965 third grade teacher well it is the end of the year for many of you...that is the cool thing about teaching...u have a beginning and an end...not too many professions like that...and I LIKE IT...life is like that, you know...a beginning and an end...not being morbid, just sayin'...

so anyway...one of my 3rd grade boys...i don't know...that boy just cracks me up...he doesn't miss a thing...and one day i see him over there going through my teaching materials...i mean, it was like The Everything Book from 1990...i just sat and watched...cause i knew this would be good...and doggone if that dude didn't pull out this book...check it out...


the next thing i know, he has my post-it notes and he is marking pages that he wants me to run off...i mean he was specific...a 10 year old boy, marking pages, and telling me how many to run of each copy...so, i did as i was told and ran the copies off...and he took off coloring like crazy...he truly has an amazing gift with color...he can naturally see the colors that work together...it is so cool to watch...so anyway.....other kids are becoming interested in the coloring thing...so we run off more copies...i mean bloggers, we have been coloring like fools for a week...and i am telling you, they are content and i am just loving it...they even wanted to color "the girl with the pearl earring"....yeahoo for johannes!..look at the work...



so i guess what i am saying is this
sometimes you gotta Keep It Simple Silly-KISS

I wanna rock and roll all night...and party every day!
