My students drew self portraits:
I cut out white background paper and some smaller polka-dotted paper:
Used some glue:

My aide added "fiesta" fringe:
...and then we strung up the portraits in a boy/girl pattern on blue ribbon. After hanging the banner up and photographing it from multiple angles, I muttered not-so-kindergarten-teacherish-words under my breath when I realized I couldn't get the GLARE out of the frame! **SIGH**

We visited a farm today! We learned lots and lots about animals and plants, a bit about Kansas history, and a whole LOT about BEES. Can't go on a field trip without the proper accessories, now can we?
Thank goodness for construction paper, yellow plaid scrapbook paper, black Sharpie markers, glue, a tabletop laminator, silver tone pin backs, and hot glue guns!
