In language arts, first grade read a book entitled “Hailstones and Halibut Bones” by Mary O’Neill. It contains works of poetry about the colors of the spectrum. Students chose a color and wrote sensory poems. They described how the color sounds, smells, tastes, looks, and feels.
In visual arts, first grade learned about the color wheel, tints and shades. A tint is when white is added to a color. A shade is when black is added to a color. They mixed paint to create tints and shades and created a background for their poems.
Fourth grade create their own unique animal adaptations in science. They used Tinkercad to design them and printed them using the 3D printer.
Fifth Grade created a succulent garden. They learned about the colorful and patterned art of the southwest which influenced the choices in their patterned pots.
Thank you to art with Mrs. Nguyen for sharing the lesson.
Kindergarten students create a song about the cracks in clay.
Kindergartners created pinch pots. First grade created symmetrical butterflies. Second grade create draped bowls and third grader made clay masks.
Clay vocabulary: Slip and score, kiln, fire, slab and glaze.

Kindergarten students also learned how to create a stop motion animation. They were assigned different jobs to create the movie. The jobs were snow makers, water and penguin mover. Here is their film:
