Here are some more of the January journal pages I've been doing with Milliande's online prompts. My goal is to do one page for each day in January! I am totally impressed that I've done 21 days so far! It's been fun to check the gallery for each day's prompt and see how many ways there are to go with a theme idea! I still have the most trouble with the actual JOURNALING, writing enough on each page. I like how Milliande incorporates her writing into the design so you don't focus on the writing separately. Her words just seem to blend into the page as another design element.
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
