Wordless Wednesday~Electives!

Today I am linking up with Christina from Sugar and Spice for her wonderful Wordless Wednesday.

Do you have electives or specials at your school?  Do you send your students out? Does another teacher come in?

In our school once a week for 45 minutes we have electives?  Each teacher chooses something that interests them, and what age group it is for.  Then all the students K-8 choose which elective they want to attend for the next 8 weeks.  This time around I choose Art.  I have students K-3 in my room during electives. 

This week we were working on directed drawings. Let me tell you it is not easy to draw nicely on a smart board.  But, the kiddos are good sports and don't laugh at my drawings.  They are all doing a great job and most importantly we are all having a good time. 

I would love to hear if you do anything like this at your school.  Be sure to check out the linky to see all the other pics!  Have a great week!



  1. We don't do ANYTHING like this at our school. It's such a great idea. I can still remember learning sign language in 6th grade during an elective class. I would definitely do drawing or singing if I had the opportunity. Fun!

  2. I love using directed drawings - it gives them such confidence and tools to apply to learning to draw other things on their own. Which all ends up meaning we get more details and better writers. I just started this two years ago. {I know, I'm probably late to the party ;) }How about you?

    1. I guess I am late to the party I just started using the directed drawings last year. Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice comment, I appreciate it!
