All of the students know how cat-obsessed I am, and were really excited to share my love for cats with this project. I showed second grade examples of Laurel Burch's work, and pointed out all the different colors and patterns. I showed them how to draw a cat in Burch's style, and then they got decorating! It's usually tough for my kids to come up with ideas for patterns, so I was really happy to see how much work they put into these.
