I substitute taught an after-school class today on Roosevelt Island. It was my first time ever on the Island and I was so excited to have an excuse to go. However, today’s weather couldn’t of been more drizzly and gray. It did make for some dramatic pictures. This is looking west from the Island at Manhattan.
We read the book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. And then each of us chose an animal and a color, pink for a pig, yellow for a lion, brown for a dog, green for a frog. We gathered all of the scraps we could find in those colors. Then we assembled our animal, using other scraps and eventually oil pastels to put on the finishing touches.
