Beautiful Oops by Barney Salzberg
The Beautiful Oops! Art Competition
We all make mistakes in life. Mistakes are good, because without them we couldn’t learn to get better. In art, it’s very easy to turn a mistake into something pretty amazing. Sometimes the mistake becomes the best part of your work.
The children were thrilled to receive a message of congratulations from the author himself. Even more special, Barney Saltzberg sent the children a #mistakemademarvellous illustration of his own using our scrap of paper:
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
Listen to the wise and wonderful Beautiful Oops read by Melissa Goodwin. Then use the the images and 'mistakes' from the book (in the document attached) to get children to turn mistakes into something marvellous ... #MistakesMadeMarvellous Let you children see mistakes are just opportunities.
Can you make these 'mistakes' into something marvellous?
