First Grade: Tu B’Shevat

In Art, First graders learned about Tu B’shevat and created a collage of birch trees. They used paint scrapers, sponges and painted paper!  The birch trees were inspired by the book Snowballs by author and illustrator Lois Ehlert.

Second Grade: Where the Wild Things Are

Maurice Sendak was an author and illustrator. His family members were the inspiration for some of his characters. Second graders learned about Maurice Sendak, studied his illustrations and searched for visual texture in his drawings. They created their own Wild Things using visual texture.
