Three down, two to go! Today was a madhouse and I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. We finished assembling the buildings and then moved onto the painting portion of the morning.
My classroom BEFORE...
Tape for days
I added a little Elmers glue to the paint to thicken it up and help it to last a little longer.
Here are some snapshots of our works in progress, pre painting
And then came the paint...
Funny story about ^ this little. My Assistant Teacher put on a smock to protect his clothes and said to me, "I don't mess around". This little was standing behind me and he goes, "Ms. Vericker look at me, I DO mess around, hahaha!" and then he did a little dance. It was the highlight of my week. We took about a zillion pictures of this.
Tomorrow is adding the little details such as windows, doors, people, lettering etc. Lots of pom-poms, stencils, more paint, more glue- fun, fun, fun! Friday we lay the whole community out and make the streets, transportation, trees, animals- the whole shebang! Wish us luck! :)
