Super Simple Dream Catcher From a Paper Plate
Third son had a terrible dream last night. It didn't help that he fell out of bed (which I hadn't heard but was described by my first son as "something crashed into the house--it made the whole house shake!" A few minutes later I heard the little guy crying and went in & located him (still on the floor). He was shaking and crying and still dreaming away.

We painted vertical lines in a rainbow with watercolor. We cut horizontal lines with our scissors and glued them to a black background. This was a little tricky for my students.

Diane “Honey” Jacobson’s latest book is an important comment about First Nations efforts to save the salmon and her personal youthful journey to find meaning and a sense of place in life.

Follow “Honey” through sometimes hilarious and sometimes difficult periods but we always learn a life lesson.
