You have chanced across the blog of a middle-aged Ontarian who discusses (with very little actual knowledge or authority) such topics as gardening, music, supply teaching, genealogy, and cooking. Said chap is husband to lovely, talented, supportive lady (The Missus), father to two lovely,and talented teenage daughters, master/slave to three demanding and very non-talented cats.
To quote the song Mr. Cellophane from the musical, Chicago "I hope I didn't take up too much of your time!"

Christmas Candy Canes With Grade Ones
I had the pleasure of teaching Grade one last week. The teacher gave me free rein to do an art project with them and here is what we came up with. The class painted straight lines of red and green across the back of a template sheet (canes were drawn on the back) and then turned them over and cut the canes out. Then they transferred them to a sheet of construction paper. Kiddies had a lot of fun and it filled in a good portion of the day. As well they learned about complimentary colours and practiced their fine motor skills. That pretty much covers the curriculum for Grade one Art, so all in all a fine day.
