Some side fun:
I bought a Bamboo Fun Pad(BFP)on Amazon. My daughter used one to created the kids on the Animated Children’s Hand Washing Song, “Rubba Dub Dub”.
Scroll to the bottom of the Hand Washing lesson plan to see animation.

I decided if I was going to finish my lesson plan book, I better create my own pic props for the teachers, parents and health professionals who will use The Singing Nurse health lesson plan book. I want to avoid the copyright problems which would prolong finishing the health lesson book while waiting on granted permissions, so here I go.

P.S. If you’d like to be notified when The Singing Nurse Lesson Plan book, which coincides with my health songs is complete, sign up @ my contact page and put Lesson Plan Book in the subject.

I will tell you what I learn from my Bamboo travels. Today I used the BFP with my simple Paint Program.

#1 don’t leave the pen on the drawing pad if you want to use your hands on you laptop cursor pad. They get mixed up and compete for control. Not good!

Today I learned how to crop my carrot, as you can see above I have a large amount of white surrounding my carrot. I added some eyes and a smiling mouth because carrots are good for our teeth and make them happy.

#2 I am still using a simple paint program. To crop your pic, right click on your picture, click on edit, click on crop, move the brackets to make the space around your subject close to the edges, click ok, and save. I’m so thankful for my kids who teach me a lot. They are my human computer GPS’. Smiling CarrotI also drew some broccoli and an apple today which are all good for our teeth. Check out the health songs on the music page, catchy and fun for the whole family.

  I wrote a poem for the “good carrot” you may like.
