I am glad you stopped by.   Over the school year I will be posting students artwork on this wiki site, let you know what is going on in each grade level, sharing info. and tidbits that I discover as the year progresses and much more, so please stop by often to see what we are creating!

Warmest Regards,

Getting to Know Mrs. Meulink

May is...

 

Get Caught Reading Month!

 

Get Caught Reading is a nationwide public service campaign launched by the Association of American Publishers to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read. May is officially Get Caught Reading month, but the celebration lasts throughout the year. Get Caught Reading is supported by hundreds of celebrities, including LL Cool J, Dylan and Cole Sprouse, and the newest addition, Olivia the Pig.

I enjoyed my time working on the Words and Pictures project with the teachers in Durham County Schools and the Nasher Museum Staff.  The website is free and has K-2 English Language Arts and Visual Art lesson plans, so classroom teachers and art teachers can collaborate!  Both are based on artwork from the Nasher Museum"s permanent collection.
