I would like to use the non fiction reading sites in my classroom to enhance units of study that we are working on. I really liked the Tween Tribune because it has articles that were written at the appropriate level for my second graders.
For my personal enjoyment I read an article about Pablo Picasso and his famous painting The Blue Room. It has been discovered that he covered up another painting of a man with a mustache that he had previously painted. As an artist I can relate to this because I have repainted many canvases for the same reasons as Picasso, and that being that I had to create the image in my mind, and I had nothing else to paint it on.
Thank you Michelle
