Robinson’s 2013 Art Show, called The Best of Kirkwood was held tonight and was a FABULOUS event. Many thanks and kudos to Mrs. Maldonado, our most amazing art teacher, for pulling together another showcase of the creativity of the artists of our school!
I wish I had more pictures, and I wish you could have been there, but I had my own fabulous artists (my kindergartener, Riley and my 2YO Allie) in tow and could only visit for short time! Here are a few highlights:
The whole back wall of the gym was covered in a mural-of-sorts showing all the best places in our town.

One of them: food! So realistic! Yep, those are my little ones looking hungry!
More yum. 🙂
Some kindergarten art! Kindergarten highlighted community heroes they wanted to be like. See that fabulous police officer? So excited about his first art show–had to share it here. 🙂
Thanks for reading! Wish you could have been there! We are definitely the BEST OF KIRKWOOD!
I wrote about the Read Around strategy yesterday, and how it was a great way to get new books into the hands of my kiddos.
This week at our staff meeting, our principal (Jennifer Sisul, @grrprincipal, and a FABULOUS leader) took us through the same activity with our library’s professional library. Let me tell ya, the great ideas are always flowing around our school! And what great timing–Spring Break is next week and we’ll all have time to read.
So, just like our kiddos did, we took time to peruse some titles (some new, some old) and I found some great ones. While I didn’t get a chance to get to everything, here are some interesting reads I’ve added to my list:
Neurodiversity in the Classroom (Armstrong); Guy Write (Fletcher); Underresourced Learners (Payne); Rigor is Not a 4-letter-word (Blackburn); 7 Habits of Happy Kids (Covey); Checking for Understanding (Fisher/Frey)
I also have at least a nightstand-full of kid novels I still want to read, too! Hopefully my children will let me have some time for that next week!
Your turn: What’s on your to-be-read list? How do you find time to read when you’re a busy, working parent?
