ACADEMICS (Jan. 10 - 14)

Our story this week is The Little Painter of Sabana Grande, by Patricia Maloney Markun. The main character, Fernando, loves art and wants to paint for the first time. Unfortunately he lives in a remote village in Panama, where he is unable to buy paint. He learns how to make paint from his teacher using natural resources. Then he realizes that he has no paper to paint on! After much persuasion, his parents allow him to paint on the outside of their adobe house. Now all of his neighbors want a painted house like the Espino family.
