Works of Art Wednesday: Bulletin Board

Anna June's class read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. The weather report predicts snow tomorrow, but it won't stick like in the story.

This is AJ's piece, part of a bulletin board display.

I'll bet AJ is one of the few kids in her class who have actually played in a real snow wonderland, and gone sledding! I wonder if she has any memory of it? ( she was pretty little!)

SNOW DAY IN ALABAMA TOMORROW!!!!NO SCHOOL!!! SCORE!!!!

Granny Annie and Auntie Nonny said...

( You guys be careful driving,now!!!)

Laura Gallitz said...

They're saying the roads won't be affected, but AJ is crossing her fingers for snow because she likes it AND because school would be closed.

She totally remembers winter in Wisconsin and wants to go back.

Laura Gallitz said...

Thanks. If it seems dangerous, we will stay home.

Granny Annie and Auntie Nonny said...

WE are going into the deep freeze for awhile, apparently. HEY! Did she get those cool boots from Santa???

Laura Gallitz said...

No. She decided the white boots Granny sent were enough like cowboy boots. Santa's wallet thanks you.

Granny Annie and Auntie Nonny said...

Oh, dear.................................................................................I feel bad about that one. I am so sorry. I have decided that i must confer w/ you from now on about gifts.....so things like that and the 'Easel debacle' don't happen again. I DO apologize! ( where did the little kitchen end up ?)And then, I'm off to sleep !Nice chatting w/ you!!!!!!!

Laura Gallitz said...

We donated the kitchen.

Granny Annie and Auntie Nonny said...

okay........................you made me cry.....................................................................you said in a post about the easel, that AJ still played w/ the little Kitchen....................................................................... ............................this girl is going to resent me and hate me, since I am the reason that she no longer has one of her really good toys. Was there REALLY NO OTHER WAY TO ACCOMMODATE the easel????????????????????????????????????????????????????????I WISH YOU HAD SENT IT BACK, INSTEAD OF GETTING RID IF THE LITTLE KITCHEN. That's all. I have spent 2 days feeling REALLY SAD.

Laura Gallitz said...

No, there was really no other place for the kitchen. I'm thinking of making a new rule that we can't buy anything else until we clear off space for said new item. There are a couple of cool toys AJ got for Christmas that we won't let her open until we make room.

The good news is that she has not mentioned the play kitchen once since it has been gone. She was not sad at all. She had been really wanting an easel, so she was eager to make the swap. She LOVES it! It was not a problem. You are too generous. The only problem is we have a tiny house. But we're not moving. We don't need a bigger house for more stuff; we need less stuff. It's not just toys - grown up stuff, too. Please don't worry about it. She loves the easel!
