Free art sub lesson: The Circle Game! Adapted from Ande Cook's Art Starters
The Circle Game asks students to come up with as many different things as they can from one circle. I thought this activity was really fun! However, my elementary students were not that interested.

I have included the handout from Ande Cook's Art Starters as well as my lesson plan with all the directions for a sub.

This being February and the month of Valentine's Day, I decided we'd draw a bunch of sweet treats and fun food this month. So our treat had to be sweet and fun too, right? Cake Balls are most certainly sweet and fun... (mine still never look as good as Bakerella's but they sure are tasty!) We began in our sketchbooks just drawing some basic, fun, cute food.

In the Art Room: LOVE This Sub Plan Collaborative!
As some of y'all might know because I've been talking about it nonstop (I often wonder just how I have acquired so many nice friends that allow me to ramble on and on without complaint. My guess is that they've formed some sort of support group), I've been out of school for several days due to el jury duty-o. You can see what I wore here cuz you know you wanna. Anywho, knowing that I was gonna be out for so long, I knew I'd have to leave some legit sub plans. So I created a couple of videos…
