Native American Art

The students have been learning all about Native Americans this month. The kindergarten and first grade classes have been making teepees and totem poles, second grade has made Native American Pictographs and are now weaving "blankets", Third graders have made teepees, Fourth graders have been making pottery with Model Magic (not the best plan), and Fifth graders have been working on Parfleches. That one is taking a while! Here's what we have so far...
Next week, we will be making some Ojo de dios in 3rd, Rain sticks in 4th, and the rest will be finishing up if possible. I won't see my kinders due to testing for part of the week, so we will be doing a quick I am Thankful turkey...

Dot Day meets ROYGBIV

Last week we combined "The Dot" with our learning about ROYGBIV from the previous week. I must say, the children did a great job! These are from 2nd grade, where we watched a video of "The Dot" and then created our own dots with oil pastels. The kinders and 1st grade also made ROYGBIV circles but bigger, and with crayons. I only have Kindergarten for 20 minutes a day, so they were done pretty quickly. This week, we are finishing up our Pinwheels for Peace- and installing them on Friday. Stay tuned for pictures on that!
