Some holiday fun…

Standard

I love the winter holidays. I love the time together with family and friends. I love the decorations and I love the crafts. An art teacher I follow posted that she is not a Hallmark factory for her school and therefore does not do holiday artwork. I absolutely respect that but I do love making holiday art so I thought I would share some of what we’ve been doing since I haven’t posted in forever. 😳

Elf legs! Ornament piles! And Kinder Rudies! 

Snowmen! 

How I’ve been feeling this season: 


Some up close and personal time with Santa! 


Nutcrackers, Rat Kings, Ginger houses, and more Santa! ❀

Β‘Dia de Los Muertos!

Standard

Day of the Dead is here. It’s one of my very favorite traditions and the kids love it too! Check out some of the projects we’ve been working on in honor of this special holiday.

Made it! Rules and procedures: taught. 600 fish: created. First week: done.


Glitter glue, watercolor, foam shapes, crayons, color sticks, sequins, and gems. Oh yeah, and rules and procedures. Week one was a success! 

Thank goodness for a long Labor Day weekend to recover. Next week will include some fun elements of art projects! 

Fall, Halloween, and El Dia de Los Muertos

Lots of fun projects happening the last couple of weeks! 

   
    
   
 Deep Space Sparkle always has amazing ideas. I adapted her 5th grade lesson for my first graders and they absolutely loved it!   

    
    
Kinders worked hard on their folk art kitties! Thanks to Art Projects for Kids for this great idea!    
    
    
   

Whew…

In the words of Salt-n-Peppa, “what a day what a day what a mighty good day”…or something like that. 😁 

The first day of the 2015/16 school year is over. It was a bit crazy but overall good. 

After a fun and engaging Prezi about expectations (haha) we all made a hand to go on our “We have all hands on deck at CES!” board. By the end of the week we will have almost all 600+ students represented! I just hope that the kids can feel how much we care about and love them. I know, for me, they are 100% the only reason I keep coming back. 

  

No, Ryan Gosling, you may NOT put up my bulletin boards.Β 

Standard

He wouldn’t do it right!!! 

  
Maybe one day I won’t be so OCD and will let people (hopefully Ryan) help me. Now, if I can just figure out how to keep the kids from leaning against them in the halls…

Picasso, Primativism, Paint, and Pastels

I saw this project on A Glimmer of Light and decided it would be a fun project to do with my 5th graders. They get so caught up in making things realistic and perfect, this project encourages them to do just the opposite and let the funky chicken out. And while we were working on these, I remembered another chicken project I have done with Kindergarten and thought it would be a great time to review color-mixing with them and then hang the Kinders’ and the 5th grader’s work together!

First the 5th grade work:


Are these not hilarious?! I love them and the kids loved them too.


Here are some kinder-chickens.
