Columbian Flower Festival

My students are very lucky that they have Spanish class for 30 minutes 2x a week.  The teacher is a great lady and actually just won Teacher of the Year for our school.  She is from Columbia and wanted to bring a piece of her home and culture to our school.  On March 9th, our school held a Columbian Flower Festival.  Students created flowers out of tissue paper, foam, coffee filters, construction paper, pipe cleaners, etc and we decorated the halls.  Then at home students created "flower boxes" that they carried on their backs and paraded through the halls that afternoon.  The school was decorated (and is still decorated) beautifully!  Take a look at the fun event!!

The flowers turned out so pretty! I wish my school dedicated more time to art... It's really not a focus for us and, unfortunately, gets pretty pushed aside on the "to do list." I also really like how you include pictures of your students yet still respect their privacy by covering their faces with different objects! I am going to have to use that idea on my blog :)
