A Special Project

I had a couple of comments and e-mails about the corkboard frame I used on Friday's post.  

I used Photoshop Elements and Fuzzimo for the images.  Frame, corkboard, push pins and post-it note.


It was a busy weekend around here.  I scored some great finds in garage sales and I worked on a project I hope to share with you this week. But a good chunk of my time was spent helping Sun Kissed Boy #1 with his first school project.  The topic was Rosa Parks.

He had great ideas on what to research on the internet and how to translate it into a written report.

The project also required the students to make an informational poster.  This was what he came up with.

I was so proud of him and his enthusiasm to take on the project. Specially since it can be difficult to concentrate around here at times.

How did you spend the weekend?

I love the stormtrooper to the right! Talk about distracting...

The bus idea for the poster is awesome, too.

The bus idea is so fitting.

I love that bus idea. Bravo Sunkissed Boy #1!
I love the idea of sharing your kid's projects!

As a former elementary teacher, I would give him an A+. The idea for the information to be displayed on a bus is great! Rosa Parks is a great topic for a first project. I think I like his teacher. A lot of teachers overlook this important month.

That looks fantastic! I love the bus, it looks like he got lots of good information on it. He should definitely get an "A"!

SKB#1 did a great job on his poster, and Sun-Kissed-Stormtrooper is a hoot.
