It's finally Friday

Such a tangled testing mess. Still one more day of state mandated testing. I'm not sure I ever taught during the month of may this year.

Frustrated

Trying to use my iPad, take a picture of zentangle with it and post. Not! Grr

Where does this go?

Having trouble with blog. Argh.

Glad it's Friday

State mandated testing is boring. There just isn't some part of it, for the students or teachers, that seems beneficial. I would guess for administrators IRS worse. But, I've snuck some tangling in. 

Will this upload?


I had the pleasure to work with two lovely ladies, two CNAs and a volunteer. It was so rewarding when the one who'd had a stroke and kept apologizing for being so shaky and struggling with her left hand, switch to her right hand and tangle! It was very positive for her and rewarding for the activity director to see her accomplishment. I can't wait to go back.

A couple of lessons learned....

1.  Greater than 65? Only an hour and a half. As much as they love it, it's tiring for them.

2. Use an 05 pen in the kit

3. Give them a scratch sheet of paper to 'practice' on. (Especially first time)

4. A string with not more than 4 sections. They want to finish each section (no matter how simple the pattern is) but it can go very slow.

They loved Ricks music!

Greater than 70
