A call for helpful links



You know I cannot post without an image. This is a Dover free image from my subscription. You can right click it and download it for your use if you like.

I have a special request from all of my buddies out there.

Mandy is a friend of mine. An artist and a beautiful young lady. She has finished school and will be starting a new job in the fall. She will be the art teacher for an elementary school. Working with kids from kindergarten through 5th grade. I was talking to her mom last night and she asked me for some ideas or links to ideas for Mandy to consider in her curriculum.

The school doesn't provide a ton of money, so she will need quick easy and inexpensive ideas for 5 years olds to 10(11) year olds.

Now, knowing how generous bloggers are, I am issuing a plea for these kinds of links and ideas. Please leave a comment (or multiples) as you find ideas she can use. I have my blogger account set up to notify me when a new comment arrives, and I will forward those to Mandy. Best wishes and kind regards for her will be appreciated too.

A good teacher in any subject can make a huge difference in a child's school career and I am so excited for the children who will get to know Mandy. She loves kids and she loves art and I know she will be a wonderful teacher for these kids.

So my blogger friends, share your information. Share your encouragement. Do what you do best? Inspire and encourage someone. This is the perfect opportunity to delurk here. I am also going to open my blog for all to comment, so you won't even need a blog yourself.

A message for Mandy - best wishes dear and talk to me. You really need your own blog. -- Teresa

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Also, did you open your present? Did you like it? Is it too weird? I'm dying of suspense over here!

This is an MSN group to which one has to be a contributing member -- but it is very organized and jam packed withlists and lists of projects.

As a "contributing" member, I have to post something once a week -- that means commenting on someone's project, offering a recipe, even asking for a link counts.

I teach art to seniors and use this site quite a lot for ideas and inspiration.
