  Toilet Paper Snake
Objective- To use recycled projects to make a snake suitable for a four to six year old to play with.

Materials-

  • Art Smock
  • Toilet Paper rolls
  • Paint
  • Red felt
  • Googly Eyes
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Glue
  • Hole Puncher
  • Paper Clips
  • Scissors
  • Newspaper

Steps-
1) The children should be gathered in a small group on the carpet. I would then tell them that we would be using recycled materials to create an art project. I would then ask the children questions such as What does recycled mean? Why would we use something that's already been used? How could we help the earth this way? After some discussion and prompting I would show them the snake craft and ask them what they thought it was. I would ask what do snakes do? What sounds do they make? Have we ever seen a snake before? Where?
2) Next I would carefully go over all of the steps to make the cardboard toilet paper snakes with the children before having them go back to their tables in groups to create their art project with adult assistance.
3) The children will have all of the materials at their tables already. They will lay out the newspaper.  The toilet paper rolls will have already been cut in half and punched with a hole on opposite sides at the bottom except the head and the tail piece which will only get one. After putting on an Art smock, when they are ready they may begin painting their toilet paper rolls.
4) They will paint both ends of the roll dark green and then paint the middle a light green or black. Then they will pick one of these colors to paint the inside of the roll as well.
5) After allowing the paint to dry the child will glue on eyes and a tongue that has already been cut out to the head of the snake.
6) Next with the Teacher's assistance, the student will use the paper clips to connect all of the snake pieces together.
7) The children will put all of the finished snakes on a table to dry so that they are out of the way and they can take them home at the end of the day.

I picked this activity because at this age the children will be able to communicate ideas, feelings, and emotions in well formed sentences to tell me what they know and think about recycling and snakes.  They can tell about their experiences with these things in an experiment story. They can follow instructions containing three parts and listen to verbal directions.  They will also be able to remember the instructions so that they will only need limited assistance with the project.

The children can also participate in creative activities such as painting and doing art projects. Their attention span should hold during instructions and for about twenty minutes while they are constructing the snakes. Children can identify colors and classify them such as the light green, dark green and black colors. They can also use glue independently at this age.

mood: blah
I wish that I wasn't such a hyperactive drunk!
It's not okay to get drunk and run around all crazy
and drink in bathtubs and wrastle bitches!
I'd like to hang out with boring drinkers that
don't feed into my craziness from now on.
In other news I am an idiot.
Hanging out with that stupid boy.
Such a bad idea.
But of course I never listen to anyone.
I'm listening to punk goes acoustic
and feeling pretty mellow, br4h.
I hate school with a passion.
I am going to be 80 years old
hobbling to class.
But instead of being my usual 15 minutes late,
I'll be like 45 minutes.
On account of changing my depends and the bad hips.
word up.

I forgot to say that I got a new kitten. I love her so much I named her Reese. Life is so blah right now. I wish when I had nothing to do I could concentrate on my schoolwork instead of wasting so many nights staring at the computer screen at nothing really. I have adhd or something I can't concentrate! I'm like the bad Cameron diaz karaoke song right now I just don't know what t do with myself. I'm so sick of dudes. I have bad taste. I only like guys with girlfriends that pull my hair. What is wrongggggg with me? I've been having a lot of bad luck lately, between cutting myself at work every five seconds, tripping and falling on my face, losing my car, getting parking tickets, and never having any money I don't even know what's going on any more. Really I'm just going with the flow at this point because if it's not one thing it's another so I am just waiting to see what happens next. Also I am having a birthday party at Skateland. The whole place is mine and I want  it to be filled with everyone I know, so if you are reading this definitely come and bring whoever you want. We'll skatem0sh.

mood: morose
Dude Gossip Girl is soooooo good!
I'm absolutely obsessed with Chuck Bass-tard!!
This Chuck and Blaire thing is almost as good as Seth and Summer
or Derrick and Meredith!!!
I absolutely love it!
Everything in my life has been revolving around work lately.
All I really do is hang out with people I work with I guess.
There is this one guy. I sure know how to pick them..
You know the typ guy with the girlfriend that gets in your face and pulls your hair.
I'm so pressed I want to stop.
Dude was a really good friend of mine=(
Or so I thought
I'm always in the struggle because if you ask any guy they will tell you that a guy and a girl can not be just friends,
that it's impossible.
But most girls will tell you that it is definitely possible to be just friends with a guy.
and I don't know if I agree or disagree..
what is the general consensus on here if anyone reads this?
It sucks..
I think about all my guy friends
and I think about all the times they got girlfriends and then all the sudden couldn't be around me.. the bad influence.
I think about the girlfriends who weren't allowed to hang out with Virginia
because she doesn't have a boyfriend.
but really otherwise in relationship friends that go out with Virginia use her to get wild!
while Virginia is the one that says nooo you have a boyfriend what are you doing,
but no I get the bad rep.!
Whatevs.
Most people have dysfunctional relationships anyway.
No offense to anyone that has a good one.
Anyways I am just struggling now with this whole issue
with the guy from work and not wanting to be pressed.
I need to save up money and get Grey's Anatomy season three..meredith is the only one who understands me!

mood: nostalgic

No seriously.
I guess I stopped writing in this thing because it seemed as though it was just for other people.
I also read other people's journals from time to time when I've surfed through everything else I can think of to look at
and I am so completely bored I think maybe someone wrote something different..
But tonight I was inspired to look at some of my past journal entries.
No one ever read those but you know what it's about looking back and seeing where you were in that certain place and time.
I don't know maybe I am having a quarter life crisis already but what the hell am I doing with myself?
Seriously I look at me now and I look at me then and I am so much more maturer then I was!
I'm still not completely mature but you know what I don't really like me now!!
I miss being an irrational attention deficited crazy immature little bitch!
Cause that sure was a hell of a lot more fun then worrying what people think all the time.
Or telling myself that I am to mature to care about people.
Not going out and doing what I want because I am worried about money or the man,
The man has never had shit on me!
I never cared about the man bringing me down!
I want to get drunk with my best friends and eat chicken!!!
Or maybe fake chicken because dumb ass me that lovessss her steak and beef and chicken 
quit eating meat like a little bitch!
Well whatever I want to eat fake fucking chicken wings and I want to get drunk and not fucking worry about anything!!
One thing I have going for me that hasn't changed is I'm still getiing punched in the face by bitches haha
I don't think that'll ever change!
I seriously sit at home with a stick up my ass thinking I am too good for everyone.
What is my problem!?!!?
I'm going to make more of an effort to write in this thing.
and it's not that I decided that all of the sudden livejournal isn't completely lame it's that I want 
to look back on this in another 5 years and know what the hell was going through my head right now because let me tell you I've got a lot of shit in here!!

  So I just watched Freedom Writers.
It sounds corny but movies like this inspire me so much
and this is why I want to be a teacher.
Movies like this inspire me to keep going to school.
I've never been a good student.
Not because I am stupid.
or a ditz.
I'm just a slackerrr.
It's really hard for  me to go back day after day,
year after year,
but I am doing it.
I've got all my credits for my AA.
I just can not wait to be done,
so I can have my own classroom one day.
I can reach these kids.
Even when I substitute,
I can reach these kids.
Everyone thinks of me as this silly, ditzy girl.
but I get respect from these kids,
they learn from me,
and THAT is the greatest feeling in the world,
and can't be taken away.
I'm in love.

Truly no one reads LJ anymore! No one even questioned my being pregnant post?!! Or you all know I was kidding...
I don't have mono either but I am 98% sure I have pneumonia with no insurance =(

 
     

( apologize for nothing)

 
   
07:53pm 08/05/2007
  So I made out with a [most likely] 16 year old, and I am sure I probably mono.
Also, I am pregnant.
I hope it's a boyyyyyyyyyyy!!!

LJ IS not popping anymore!
As much as I think it's lame now,
I feel a duty to write kind of!
I've been substituting and its pretty awesome!
Contrary to what people may think I am awesome
with the kids and they love me!
I am learning several different ways to silence kids
without screaming at them!
Clapping! Bunny ears! Light flashes! Counting! Spelling!
The best part is that I get paid the same whether I work 7 hours or one!



One good thing I have just seen, for all of you that have cable......


One tree hill and The OC are going to start on Soapnet!

Oh yeah, I hate boys!

mood: aggravated
So I bought a wireless card so I could get stolen internet, but now my computer has a virus and I can't get on myspace, which lets face it, is the most important part of the internet! But at least I can google and Imdb stuff and aim people when I want! So kendall told me I should just make lj posts about how much I am obsessed with her. I mean I do find myself calling often but obsession is a bit far. This week I had a friend die and it makes you think of a whole lot of what ifs. I totally should have stuck with him instead of obsessing over Jimmy. He used to call me at work all the time, and make me laugh, and always believed me when I told ridiculous lies. He always stepped down when I asked him too, I just feel as though he shouldn't have. He was a really good guy, he just had a few issues.  I will miss him a whole lot. Anyways with the what ifs, it makes me think if I had just did one single thing different the whole sequence of events to follow would change. When you apply that to everything it drives you crazy. Thats why if you ever time travel you aren't allowed to mess with things because everything you change is life altering. It's really true and It's completely insane! Anyways I had an oppurtunity and I passed on it, because I have a thumb stuck up my ass. Upon removing that thumb I think I am being dissed. What kind of a faggot doesn't return a phone call from ME?! I'M AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need to find a boyfriend in 07. I'm trying very hard, but faggots just aren't trying to cooperate. I'm also upset about the oc ending. Maybe I'll boycott TV after that because there won' be anything good on any more except all my children and what I like about you, but come on now, what I like about you has already been cancelled I'm living on repeats. Nick Zano by the way is very dreamy, and I believe the fag that isn't calling me back could be my vince.
end.

  My theatre class.
Today in class I helped this boy do his final project....
THE DINNER SCENE FROM SCARFACE!!!
I think it's one of the best scenes in the movie.
I was Elvira and I got to throw a glass of water in his 
face and it was so fun it made my week!
Also, recently I've seen Ice Princess, 
and now I have dreams of being a figure skater, 
much like break dancing after you got served 
and skateboarding after lords of dogtown!
Also due to recent discoveries about April 4, 1970,
AND my love/obsession for the OC,
I have decided to be a political activist!
I need to make a difference!
I'm moving somewhere where I can do cool things!
Where is Brown?

Give me some more details!
I will not get a life!
I only read back entries like once a month, 
Give me a break!
I need money!
I have a tuesdate!
Dudes in my classes piss me off!
thats all.
