It was the parents' decision to keep them home. They will get a local fun trip some time this week.
I took the opportunity of having them alone and did an art project which we have been waiting to try -- Plasticine art by Barbara Reid. She has a series of great videos and written instructions of her techniques on her website. There is also a gallery of student art to view which my students enjoyed immensely.
So here are our master-pieces! I must say I expected to work a few days on these, but this is kindergarten...and we just DO!
Now, I must get back to work. I have started on end-of-year clean-up. I know I should do reports, but I find I work better in a cleaner environment!
