reading & writing with art

WE HEART ARKANSAS - My Home Sweet Home by Amy Simpson

We have been working on our annual MYCARDs art project.  This is where my students design art work that their families can choose to order into "note cards and envelopes" with their art printed on the front.  It is a fund raiser for the art program and I use the funds to purchase frames, canvases, materials for the art room. 

And they are just super cute!  This year we are using my friend, teacher and author's book My Home Sweet Home & MY ARKANSAS for our literature piece.  It is written by Amy Simpson who lives in Jonesboro, AR  It is a personal book so you fill in the blanks to fit where you live on the map.  You can contact Amy directly by email at amy@arareading.org.  Amy also serves on the Arkansas Reading Association board with me.

You can use the company to do your own cards at www.mountaincolor.com

Here is the link to purchase her books:
