The art room is not just for me anymore. No! I am trying to share. So here is my little station.....
Here is the reading and CD center.....
Here is the door to the art center......
Inside the art center......(it's like a very large walk-in closet size)
We had our first day of school yesterday and thankfully everything went well. We read together in the living room- did all of the writing work at the kitchen table, and then came up the art room after lunch. I got to sit at my little station while each kid was at a different center
#1- art center where they can create with any of the supplies in that corner.
#2- book and CD center- I had a book on cd that they could listen to and a few other books and flash cards.
#3 -computer center- My laptop was on the bed where they could sit and play computer games. Each kid had 20 minutes at each station and then switched, until all 3 had done all 3 centers and MOM GOT TO PAINT!!!!!! Win-win-win! I am going to switch up the stations so that they won't get bored- make sure to get new books on CD from the library, put new art supplies in the art center every once in awhile, etc.
Our downstairs school work area. (otherwise known and used as a kitchen table)
Here is the cake wreck!!! We made the cupcakes and had leftover batter- so we made a large green apple cake. Then we took some icing, made it pink, and tried to create a little worm......Dave said it looks like a big wad of gum, and I have to agree- gross. But the kids all fought over that and wanted to eat that worm. We should have saved that piece for uncle Mark :) If you have never seen the cake wrecks blog- it is really funny.
The cupcakes tasted really good- we made spice cake- the taste made up for the looks :)
