Powder Tempra

Does anybody use powder tempra?  I inherited a TON when I moved into my rooms last year and haven't used it.  I experimented the other day mixing it and it seemed to be quite runny although the color was pretty saturated like regular paint.  Any suggestions/hints/tips?

Back to School!

It's been a rough few days transitioning from summer to long days with kids but school is back in full swing!

I have taken a few photos of my bulletin boards and door for the beginning of the year in the elementary building.

Good Behavior Bulletin Board: If the whole class is good, the rocket ship is moved to a new planet. 
At the end a recess or free day is earned.

My first "big" project for the year is a school wide display of Pinwheels for Peace on the front lawn of the school.  Pinwheels for Peace celebrates International Day of Peace on Sept. 21st.  I will have more info and pictures to post later.  Here is a bulletin board I created for it:
