I do honor hearts each year with my 5th graders. Clay is one of my personal favorites, but I do find it difficult to teach. Like so many others, I have very little storage space. Plus, the back to back classes make it difficult to change out projects. So when one class does clay, we ALL do clay, all 680 of us. It is exhausting...then the firing starts. But when it is all said and done, I start forgetting the extra hours I put in for these beautiful little clay pieces of art. Here are some, fresh out of the kiln. I suspect there will be some very happy Moms on Mother's Day!
