7th Grade Marionettes

Oh, I am guilty of neglecting this Blog...part because of being busy, but mostly because I lost the connecter that allows me to download pictures from my crappy camera.  I found it! So in the next few weeks I will update the projects from this year (there is only really one week left of school!).  

I recently went for it and got a fancy smart phone, so I will be able to post on the soon as I can figure out how that works, lol... are some pictures of some needle felting from the 7th graders.  I had planned on a much more controlled project, but this took on a life of its own right from the start.  They started needle felting before I could even give instructions, as though they had been doing it all their lives (they hadn't)...and they didn't break that many needles in the process.  They also wrote and performed short sketches, which at first were supposed to be for the Kindergarten, but only one was appropriate for the little ones.  I let them have fun with it!  Here ya go:

Some of the pictures are works in progress.
