Here are just a few of the self-portraits made in art class the first couple weeks of school. From left to right: Greer (CH), Lily (CH), Lou (LE), Abby (LE), Nolan (UE), and Adrian (LE). More to come!
I’ve begun hanging the originals in the hall to the left of the toddler room, so next time you’re at school be sure to check them out! I’m hoping to display them all soon. Each one really reflects the student’s unique and special personality. It’s been a really fun project.
Lower Elementary studied the different parts and types of mountains and yesterday, the children were very excited to make their own mountain out of clay. Trish guided them in art, to create a clay mountain, then they labeled all of the different parts of their mountain. Next week they will start studying volcanoes.
Today LE had a visitor from Casey Farm. He spent the morning teaching them about: migration and animal tracking, food chains, adaptations to winter, and hibernation/dormancy. He was very engaging and kept the children moving with some very creative activities.
