|A wild Armadillo! My kids have seen it a couple of times but this is the first time I have caught sight of it and got in a few pictures.|
|I have never seen one alive before and always thought they were cute looking. Although that has changed as I now know just how destructive they are for your garden:(|
|I wish he would stay in the woods otherwise I will have to figure out a way to remove him and transport him to a new location :()|
If you have ever had any dealings in how to gently encourage an Armadillo to stop tearing up your garden please leave me a note:)
For art we are working on learning about Edward Hopper.
|Some resources we used along with Meet the Masters program.|
|learning about the artist and looking at some of his artwork|
|I really liked this artist very simple art work with simple lines and colors so we ended up spending two weeks looking at his work and 3 works working on art projects|
|Working on the Meet the Masters art project|
|Beach scene emphasizing horizontal lines.|
Next we worked on a water color painting, again emphasizing lines in the art. This time more vertical lines were used. We took 2 weeks to complete this water color project and really emphasized to the boys to slow down and be more deliberate with their brush strokes.
|I found this free project on Pay teacher.com It also used the right brain drawing that we had just studied for our last artist using Meet the Masters.|
|I lightly made grid lines on art paper and the boys then using a ruler and the picture guide drew their on lighthouse and farm house.|
|MarioFan's friend decided to do a sunset sky for his picture while Mariofan decide to do a clear blue sky:)|
You will get to see the finished project next week:), hopefully!
MarioFan has reacher another milestone in his life. It is official!!!!
|He is taller than his DAD!!! My husband is no longer the tallest in the house and I think MarioFan still has a way to grow! I been looking up at my son for a while now lol|
That is are week in a nutshell:) Hope you are having a fun week as well!
