We’ve been doing different things in class in connection with the novel The View from Saturday. Today we did Calligraphy in Language Arts. I had my students create their own name plates using calligraphy pens, with india ink in bottles. They learned to dab their pens in ink and write. My first period got to excited that once their name plate dried they went to staple them onto the wall. As you can tell there’s some crazy positions on the wall, that would be the first class that was placed up there. I then took over stapling privileges and tried to fix it. It still isn’t as organized as I’d like, but I suppose it does give my classroom wall some character. It’s a nice visual representation of the kids I have.
