A while ago the second-grade teacher asked me to print out drawings of maybe a garden, something for the second graders to color in "with pointillism" "that will take them a long time to finish."

So I hated everything I could find for free online, so I decided the real point of working with kids is to regress, so I drew:



The kids especially liked the kitten-squirrels in the tree, but my favorite is the rabbit-anteater-bear:



Tomorrow is a field trip! The other assistant and I had to plan games. Remember Red Rover? That is the absolute most fun but someone absolutely always gets hurt. Just like teaching adjectives by having the students describe one another.

Well drawn, Regressive One (oh how
it hurts to say so--but how pleasing to look, unless one is a honey'd ant on a leafy blade of grass).

Even so, I hope the field trip is fun and painless and inspires more drawings.

Love,

Pops

I really like the wandering people and the wandering trees up the mountain...
oh, gosh, it made me miss my little miss with the charming illustrations....
It would be neat to post some of the students' work with pointillism! Mary Town would be very interested, as she does stuff like that with Sycamore kids...
much love from your mama!
