Foster Grandparent and Proud of It!

Here is the Early Learning Research Academy window the teachers decorated which looks out to City Hall. And here is the easel with a pre-K painting – 18″ x 22″ – large(!) on it to enjoy.

And here is a mural we made of one’s class’s artwork, which I posted to the world’s largest online kids’ art museum: artsonia.com.

You can see an origami pop-up book that the pre-schoolers and I decorated with clouds and the sun.

And finally, a kindergardener’s Easter Bunny initiated by Jeffrey Phillips, K-3 art teacher at Leap Academy. You can see the amazing work he and Nina Speart, Leap Academy art teacher for grades 4 to 6, initiated, which I helped to post on http://www.artsonia.com.  Just go to Camden, N.J. and look for Leap Academy and for the little ones, look for ELRA (Early Learning Research Academy).

I’m sure you can understand why I love volunteering for the Foster Grandparent Program in Camden pre-k and elementary schools.
