the final chalkboard drawings of 09/10!

Posted in chalkboard drawings with tags , , , , on May 31, 2010 by Christopher Pearce

An unceremonious end to this year’s chalkboard drawings, sad to say. We ran right up into the end of the year in my classroom with classwork… and the last five days of school are final exam days, and I don’t draw on the boards for final exams in deference to how serious I take them.

Here are three of the last drawings though!

As a last lesson, we do a small two-day mini unit on haikus. This is born mostly out of the fact that I’m not a huge fan of how most English teachers teach the haiku. Almost all the emphasis is put on the 5/7/5 syllable structure, and there’s a heck of a lot more to them than just seventeen beats.

By the by, this drawing was totally ripped off from Stan Sakai.

I have never been a big fan of E.T. but naming my son Elliot has doomed me to countless questions about the origin of his name. I usually just tell them that I named them after Law & Order tough guy Elliot Stabler.

Shrek 4 came out on the Friday we were doing sustained silent reading.
