Books

Django 

We read this delightful book in class last week. The children were interested in Django’s story and how he came back from a horrific injury to his left hand to become one of the world’s greatest guitar players.

 The Carnival of the Animals

This book, with new verse by Jack Prelutsky, and illustrations by Mary GrandPré, has a companion CD. This will be our book for class on September 28.

 Strange Mr. Satie

Hilarious depiction of one of the first “surrealists.”

LE Exploring Glue Prints!

Lower Elementary students have been busy creating all kinds of fantastic glue prints!  Each student began by creating a line drawing  on  cardboard, then applying glue and string to the line work. During the second class, we began the inking process.

Once the ink is applied to the original board, students use a dry brayer to press the inked image onto a clean sheet of paper.  There is a feeling of cooperation between the students and peer teaching and assistance exists each step of the way!

The objective of this lesson is to create original work and become more proficient in the  preparation and  process of print making.  Students were all enthusiastic and everyone participated
