I just want to say that the wording of this thread title makes me smile every time I see it.

That's a good point. Maybe I will do my cutesey (but effective) projects and just not display them in the hall. If she wants to see lots of black and white writing and computations then I'll give her plenty of that in the hallway.

I do worksheets (not a ton) but if they support my lesson or are good for review I'll use them. I don't display them, that's what writing and those "artsy" projects are for. In the younger grades these types of projects are appropriate. As long as it can be linked to the curriculum, it shouldn't be a problem.

I guess I'd be asking her what exactly she wants to see.
Maybe I can send an annoymous email asking. Our school has a distinct culture of fear...if the P says the sky is Navy Blue with a Pink Sun you better darn well accept that and not question, least you be added to the "sh*t list" and professionally bullied.

I'm glad you like it. That's a little of the creativity I'm forced to suppress in the classroom coming out I guess.

Reading these posts makes me sad. I do TONS of art - especially this year. I have a really challenging group of students, but I can keep them all engaged with an art project. It's a magical time in my classroom and something I do at least weekly.
