Love Those Schools, cont. . . .
One of the bonuses
of living in Maine
and visiting schools in Maine
is that the scenery
and the people
Lured by Island Readers & Writers
recently I visited schools
in Jonesport and Beals Island.
They've been studying The Wanderer
and have developed so many wonderful projects
based on their year-long theme:
Navigating the Storm.
Science, health, literature, art, math, music
incorporating all disciplines:
Below are some of the art projects.
I wish I could have included photos
of all the other projects
but at some point
I put away my camera
and merely drooled.
(More photos at above link to Island Readers and Writers)
Tied into the above weaving
are individual scrolls
on which students had written
private messages about their own storms.

Thank you all, for an inspiring visit!
