  1. I love your op art lesson for one point perspective, and wanted to let you know that I have created a post on my blog about finding this lesson. I have posted the link to you blog in connection with this post. I hope you don't mind.

  2. I thought I posted a comment earlier, but I love your op art lesson, and plan on stealing it for my classroom. I have created a post on my blog to share this with other people as well, hope you don't mind.

  3. I googled "one point perspective" and your site came up--i LOVE this lesson--it is exactly what i was looking for--would you ever share your lesson with me?? i am trying it with 5th grade--maybe 4th--it will be a perspective/color lesson--LOVE this!!!
    thanks susan

  4. I will be happy to - send your email address to me at the "contact Mrs. Knight" tab near the top. i wish i could take credit for coming up with this lesson, or at least remember the people who posted it originally. i found it browsing through blogs myself, then months later when it was time to teach it i couldn't find who posted it and just tried to remember how it looked.


Comments are very appreciated - thanks for stopping by!
