Gratitude Cafe

Standard

Inspired by Jason Mraz and his thoughts on gratitude…

For the Thanksgiving season, my second graders discussed miniatures and how important detail can be in a work of art. They created miniature cornucopia collages and they turned out so vibrant and cute and I love them. With our crazy schedule in November, I have one Kindergarten class that is finished with one lesson and if I had started the next lesson with them this week, they would get even farther ahead of the other classes. So I decided to do a Thanksgiving Painted Paper Turkey. It’s a one-class deal and they turned out so great! Check out the results along with the colorful and thoughtful board they were hung on. : )

A cool new DIY border I saw on Pinterest! Just take a long strip of bulletin board paper and cut into long 3-4″ wide strips. Accordion fold and scrunch then carefully pull apart and re-scrunch as you’re stapling around the boarder. It looked much better than I thought it would and it was way easy!!
