Hello fellow teachers of visual things! I am providing some of the resources that I have created and use within my programs and lessons. I work hard to credit others when appropriate, and I never post materials made by others without their permission. I believe when teachers share resources, it leaves more time to focus on the teaching. I also believe in morals and karma, so try hard not to sell my materials to others when you didn’t have to pay a cent to use them yourselves.
Classroom Labels in English and Spanish
I made these to support my bilingual and English Language Learners in the art room. They are FREE because I used a free border and took pictures from Google.

Emergency Substitute Lesson Plans
Let’s face it, the average sub is not prepared to deal with the art room. I even prep my kids when I know I’m going to be at conferences, so they know what to do in case the sub is really terrible. While I’ve never had to take a sick day (knock on wood!), I have these as my emergency lessons. Each of them for K-4 is a game based drawing. 5-6 are allowed to choose a Zentangle Pyramid or Cube.
