Giraffes Galore

Of course I take pictures of Giraffes wherever I see them. Some of these are from other teachers' classrooms.





Some are drawn by my students, because they know I love Giraffes.




Some are from educational materials.


If it's got a Giraffe in it, I'm probably going to take a picture of it.

Nibbling Mice

I do a directed coloring lesson with each new letter, in which I teach my students how to color using short strokes, shade and control their crayon. In spite of copying from the same photo, every student manages to invest their picture with their own particular stamp of creativity.

Raindrops Series ~ Set 4

I love my last raindrops picture. The hot-pink flower and tiny raindrops are gorgeous. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite. Glad I don't have to.

Raindrops Series ~ Set 2

I like editing a picture to focus on different areas of the original.





I also like turning a picture to see which way produces the most interesting view. Sometimes I like all of them.
