Illustration Friday: Seed

Of course, this is the time of the year when we plant our little seeds in cups in our classroom and wait for them to grow! We water them and give them sun then give them to our Mommies for Mother's Day! We've been doing LOTS of plant themed projects in my Kindergarten class. Also we just received our caterpillars this past week, so soon, we'll have little caterpillars making their own chrysalis then BEAUTIFUL butterflies! This is a fun time of year! Except we begin testing next week...in Kindergarten...no child left behind...I'd like to get all those bureaucrats to get their fat @$$e$ in there in the classroom and see what it's really like! :) Sorry...I tend to get preachy about school stuff!

that is so cute. my big boy will be going to kindergarten next year. i can't wait for him to do this kind of stuff. he is really hands on and arsty. he's going to have a blast. I know what your saying about no child left behind. i used to be a pediatric nurse. I went to school with disabled kids. the teachers had to ask kids that communicate through blinking what they would do if there was a fire. It was ridiculous

Yes, I do remember doing this in school! :-)
I love the posters on the wall, and all the nice details you add to your illustrations, Tracy.

I always love receiving the mother's day flower that the kids have grown at school. Sadly, they started middle school this year (my two youngest) so I'm not sure if I'll get one this time. =o(

Adorable illustration.

I like all the details Tracy. Did you do it on Illustrator, or by hand?

Thanks for your comment!

Hi, Tracy! Been a long time, huh?

Sweet work! I love all the stuff you've done since last I was here.

I hear ya on the teaching stuff. My wife teaches 8th grade and this time of year is all about teaching for the test. Testing is not working. She's getting her masters right now and is doing work on reading proficiency - she just wrote a big report on how testing promotes cheating in schools among students and teachers alike and how it takes away from honest learning.

Love ya, girl!

Great illustration. I just love seeing the excitement this time of year.

By the way, I also agree with the testing thing....Dibbles this and that...just takes the fun and motivation away I think. How can you learn to read by memorizing five little books?
