Kindergarteners have been learning about shapes in art. We read poems from Lois Elhert's book called, Oodles of Animals. Students then created their own animal collages. Here is some of the artwork from Mrs. Summers' class:
In 3rd grade we are working ahead just a bit to create some holiday artwork to decorate the hallways in December. They created poinsettia flowers using paper plates.
In Character Ed, we are learning about Responsibility. We read Shel Silverstein's poem, "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out." We discussed the importance of being responsible and set goals for how we would do that this year.
Please don't think I'm trying to push Christmas art to early, but we are trying to get a jump start on things so that we can display them in our school after Thanksgiving. 5th graders created gingerbread houses to go along with our unit on architecture. We saved their milk cartons from lunch and built around them with graham crackers, icing, and candy. They did a great job and the room was actually pretty clean afterwards. Thanks so much to everyone who donated candy for this project and for everyone who volunteered to come in and help.
