Ellen Stoll Walsh
I am still accepting portfolios. I am only reviewing them, and sending the form you need for your school district. Thanks so much. Becky email@example.com
The author for September is Ellen Stoll Walsh. I remember learning about Ms. Walsh back in graduate school. I was fascinated as another student used an overhead projector, glass jars, and colored water to enhance her telling of Mouse Paint. I am dating myself with that overhead projector comment, but it was very fun to watch.
Mrs. Walsh pictures are distinct and inviting. She has a wonderful way of reviewing colors, shapes, and counting. Here is a post by another author Tedd Arnold about Ms. Walsh. It tells about how she became a storyteller and author.
I have set up a Pinterest board with some activities that I have found. Here are some ideas I am going to try to work in this month.
~ Take a nature hike.
~ Make some shape pictures
~ Read and snuggle as much as I can.
~Do some color mixing in glasses so my kids can see it.
~Paint and mix colors.
~Print a couple of worksheets as optional activities.
I would love to hear your ideas. Please write them in the comments.
