Student Drawings Vol. 12

I have another batch of student drawings just in time for the holiday break. Hopefully you enjoy the photos and I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving.

Juggalophoto (1)








Only a couple ICP/Juggalo pictures this time. The first is a paper found at a middle school. The second is some graffiti I did on one of my friend’s cars.

When my students finished their last test, I asked them to turn it over and draw a picture on the back. Part of my reasoning behind this is to keep them busy so they don’t start talking while others are working, part of my reasoning is so I would have more pictures for this blog post.

photo 1

This student was mad I had added to his drawing. It’s not my fault he had no driver or wheels.

photo 2 (3)

I like this dragon-monster-thing. Why is that it’s always the quiet students that are really good at drawing?

This elaborate drawing above was on the back of a student’s test. The picture below is a zoomed in photo of the bottom section.

photo 2

You are interpreting the picture correctly. The guy on the bottom has both of his hands tied and is being pooped on by the guy above him. I especially like the little burst-bubble coming off of the pooper’s head.

 photo 3 (2)  A somewhat abstract drawing of a fly eating cake. I like this one a lot.

photo 4 

Again, another well-done drawing by a student who is very quiet in class. The dog is kind of odd though.

photo 5 (1)“Teddy don’t like mashed potatoes. He likes stuffing!”

This teddy bear is eating his own stuffing. I thought it was very clever and yet creepy. This fits my sort of humor though, so I like it.

photo 5 (2)This student was very proud of her intricate way of writing “HAREN”. This picture contains all five letters with a minimal amount of lines. My little brother used to do this with his name when he was younger.

photo 5

A dead, crying, stuffed cat holding a stuffed heart that is dripping blood.  Of course you would draw that on the back of your math test.

The following collection of photos are pictures drawn on my white board and on my desks. My students point these out to me on the desk and I pretend to be very angry and tell them I need to take a picture as photo evidence so I can show it to the students who did it when I bust them. In reality, I don’t mind too much and I take the picture so I can put it on this blog.

NinjaDude photo 1 (2)

I like the ninja a lot. This is the one I had to pretend to be mad about. In reality, it’s a pretty great sketch.

Apparently I’m the bomb. My students may not think so when I blow-up at them for using my markers. (See what I did there.)

photo 1 (3)Again, I appreciate the compliment but I really don’t like students to waste my dry erase markers. They are expensive.

photo 2 (1) “Mr. Haren, can I draw on your board?”

“No. I don’t want you to waste the markers.”

“Ok, well I’ll just draw this weird-dead-stuffed-mouse-thing that has been exploded in the stomach. K. Thx!”

The childishness and yet logic with these comments is hilarious. Two students said that Rachel is gay with a guy Ben. Her only comment in return is that she’s not a guy, so she couldn’t be gay with another guy. I’m glad my geometry students are learning some logic.

photo 3 (1)Why do you come to school?

“It’s the law. And my immediate family (my grandma, uncle, dad and dad’s gf) would kill me if I didn’t get an education and end up having to strip for heroin money.”

Well, yeah. I’m glad you know exactly what happens if you don’t go to school.

photo 4 (2)

On the margin of one of my student’s homeworks. I have noticed recently that some students write emoticons backwards from what they originally were. e.g. (: instead of :). This is all fine unless you want to say :P, you know, a tongue sticking out. As you can see, in the picture, it becomes P: This is a person sticking their tongue up. Maybe they meant to do this though, I don’t know, I can’t keep up with this world of emoticons. Nevermind.

photo 1 (1) 

Found in one of my colleagues’ classrooms. I like the honesty.

photo 4 (1) 

Another picture found in someone else’s classroom. I have to say that it is a pretty poor looking dinosaur. His front arms look floppy, he has a weird bumpy back, no eyes, and a weird tail.


I’m closing out this blog with what is easily my favorite picture yet. One of my students made this because I told her I’d hang up her picture if it was good enough. If you couldn’t already tell, the zombie is supposed to be me. “Math, so easy a zombie can do it.” I am going to have this blown up into a large size poster.

Enjoy the holidays. I’ll hopefully have a new post in January.
