Jackson Pollock's Birthday

Jackson Pollock was born on this day in 1912.
We will be reading Action Jackson by Jan Greenburg and Sandra Jordan
and Illustrated by Robert Andrew Parker

If you would rather have your kids experiment without the mess check this out.

I will post pictures later and also be here for the Unplugged project
which features egg cartons today....I have so many uses for them I don't know where
to begin. ;-)

Thanks for the lesson plan link. I had some stuff I wanted to print on it but we are out of ink. So I think we may do more this weekend when I have more ink.

Those are great paintings. I think that you might have a mini Pollack on your hands. Great job

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
