Mona Who?

Today, I went on strike.

It was Earth Day. It was nice outside. It was CRT testing. And the natives were DEFINITELY restless.

So, I did what any self-respecting teacher would do: I went on strike.


I ditched my oh-so-carefully-planned lesson on Renaissance artists, printed a page-sized color picture of the Mona Lisa, and then had my sixth graders draw their own version trading out the face for anything that they liked.

My favorites so far: Mona Chuck Norris, Mona Vader, Mona-ham Lincoln, Mona Terminator, Santa Lisa, and Ninja Lisa.

There was even a Mona Miss Hulet.

Educationally edifying to be sure.

Dang, you should get pictures of those. Especially Mona Miss Hulet.

Yes, yes! We want pictures! I also vote for Mona Miss Hulet, but I'm also quite curious about Mona-ham.

Way to find something to keep the natives happy. i don't think I had any teachers that would have done that.
