Zoey's Journal

Here's a couple of samples from Zoey's journal.

Students Introduced to Illustrated Journals

When I decided to try an illustrated journal for myself I started talking to kids about it. Several kids seemed interested so I bought some inexpensive journals for 10 kids (next time I won't buy 'cheap' journals--the ink seeps through). So far they've done some great stuff, I thought I'd post some samples here. Madison drew her classroom teacher's desk and Meara's drew a fashion gal.

In our first session we talked about realistic drawing and drew either candy boxes or pop cans.

After that lesson, Angela drew the catsup at a Chili's restaurant and Jackie drew some crayons.

Angela drew ALF, a classroom mascot. The kids will send me new entries over the summer.
