She told me today that her mom signed her up for this class because she watches too much TV. I'm soooo glad she signed her up for Mundo Lindo!

Self portraits with chalk pastels. First we drew lines to help with the proportions of the face and its features.
So, we created self portraits, we finished celebrated Marcos and Fernando's birthday with chips and juice and still we had time to go outside for a game in the sunshine!

Can you imagine when this little guy graduates from UCSD, and looks back at this pic when he was in the 4th grade.....
The kids trace their hands, then drew a heart around it and colored it with color pencil. Then, bake and shrink for about 3 minutes.

I talked to the kids about Haiti, and all the Haitian children that had lost their homes and parents...They really listened, and embraced this project of making tiny houses, that will be made into pins and magnets and sold for $5 each, with all the money going to Unicef for Haiti.
(Jasmin and I cut all the house shapes, and glued the roofs on, before the kids arrived to class)
