Happy by Mies Van Hout is the title of the book that inspired some fun art in FDK. This book was fantastic for vocabulary enrichment. Everyone enjoyed acting out the words after we read the book (wish I could show those photos). Later we put the "feelings" in a basket.  When students came to the ART station they chose a "feeling" from a basket and then illustrated the feeling through their fish. The display greets us each morning.

Check out the book for yourself. Great art and words!


  1. As an Elementary Education major, I really value what you are doing with your students. I love all of your ideas and I hope that I can become as great of a teacher as you seem to be. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thank you. Good luck on getting the best job ever - teaching young children! ah
