We're on the wall!

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

YAY! Yippeeeeee!!!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Our wonderful maintenance man cleared the rest of the paint off the wall yesterday after school - so I arrived to a clean clean wall this morning.

My morning classes were finishing a variety of projects, including the last three mosaic squares - so we stayed in the room. (Plus I wore white pants today.)

However, just as my after lunch class was about to begin, power went out. So the class came in, I talked to them about what we'd do, we gathered up materials, went to the storeroom to get the messy chairs and ladder, and went up to our wall (way across campus by the auditorium).

We only got as far as measuring the horizontal lines (9 feet tall, so 9 lines, 27 feet long each) - using yardsticks and chalkline, we find the straight line. Then, while students use yardsticks and marker to darken the lower lines, we climbed onto chairs and did the upper lines. Then a crew came in with chairs and ladder, and finished the upper lines.

I also had people measure 1 ft increments so tomorrow we can create the vertical lines (same process). Then we'll sketch our picture (enlarged from 2/3 inch squares to 1 ft squares).

THEN we'll be ready to concrete our tile squares up on the wall.

And until we're done, I get to wear shorts to school - I mean, how can anyone expect me to dress nicely when I'm climbing ladders and putting concrete on the wall?

    Definitely! At the end of the school year, when we have the last week where we're supposed to finish grades and clean our room, I'll write another blog summarizing the year and post pictures.
