the kids' favourite characters were tartessa, remora, & the skull. i couldn't think of how to do any skull-in-a-bag-themed art projects, but four days work garnered us three papier-mache sea witches who are now the envy of all the other classes. they're mounted on the wall now, chasing some origami pirate ships.

as some of you know, i work with kids in my secret identity. all last month, i was privileged to read aaron renier's the unsinkable walker bean to about half-a-dozen kindergarteners, reading a section every day until we finished the whole 200-page book. they went *nuts* over it & i'm looking out for another graphic novel that will be as perfect for this group.
