We're so thrilled with how well the children are decorating the wooden pieces and ceramic tea set that PODS will auction off.

Earlier this year, I introduced the class to my little How To Draw An Elephant book. Many of their drawings were still posted on our bulletin board when this project came up. Mrs. T asked several of those children to recreate their drawings on this chair (some are on the back). Then I showed the class some examples of patterns in print and on fabrics. After creating their own on paper, some of those children recreated their patterns as borders on the chair.

It's beautiful to see the care and concentration as each takes his/her turn. Currently they are working on the tea set and a step stool covered with frolicking figures.
