|My finished loaf of banana bread. Yum! I hope.|
My next baking goal is to make some gingerbread men, but so far, I have not found any molasses. The rumor is that it cannot be bought here. I hope to continue the investigation further as I enjoy my Happy New Year's day off from school. An aide in K5 French wanted to try gingerbread after we made gingerbread men in art class. I sure would like to surprise her with some!
I am preparing for some students to draw camels. They certainly have seen them around here if not in Marrakech, Fez or further south. I think it is a good animal for cross-cultural connections, especially this time of year.
I am working on breaking the camel figure into manageable shapes for novice artists. Maybe third grade? They've learned adding value by shading, and they have been practicing shapes. They always get so excited when they see they can actually draw an animal.
I'll post pictures of what I've come up with later today...gotta go draw!
