I had a great time at Rose Warren Elementary School this morning. I talked to the first graders about geography and Alaska in particular.I gave them each a "Color Alaska with Grandma Joy and Grandpappy Happy" coloring book.And color crayons which were donated by a local resturant. They were very attentive when I talked to them and they loved getting the book and crayons.
I also met the art teacher who invited me to come back ( as an artist) and talk to her class about oil painting.
Our children are little dry sponges just waiting for "good moisture for their brains". And I for one will do all I can to try to contribute to helping the teachers any way I can. I hope you will join me by volunteering to visit your local schools.
