Bed Head

Upper Grades make some wild Bed Head! They used the lines of their name to make the look of hair. I was really impressed with their creativity, but I realized we need to practice drawing faces...There were many circle heads. Imagine if we had circle heads! We would be very funny looking.

Students: Design your Own Raindrop!

Students: please design your own raindrop. Remember to refer to the lines posted below the clock to mix, match, and combine the basic lines to design your own drop. If you are reading this post and bring me a raindrop, not only will you impress me so much, but you will also be sure to get your raindrop posted here!

Practicing with scissors

The first graders were the first students to earn the right to use the scissors. I was pleasantly surprised at how well they used them. Their goal was to cut zig-zag, straight and wavy lines and most the students could do it.

The dotted paper has a Dr. Suess quote saying "I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells". This paper was quite appropriate for the project. Although the first graders might not understand "nonsense" and "brain cells", the adults who read it from the artwork might appreciate it.

Getting to Know Names

First Project was doing a project with their name. It is great way to get to know each others' names.

The lower grades practiced drawing lines by tracing around and around their name. There was a large variety of artwork considering!

The Upper Grades did bubble letters with a vanishing point.
