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.
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…
In June, at the end of the school year, I promised myself that I would take a break from the blog this summer. My thought was that at the end of the summer and the beginning of the new school year I would feel a renewed sense of excitement towards art ed and blogging both.
I think it’s worked! I haven’t looked at any notifications or anything the entire summer and I am so ready to jump back in and share what we will be learning and expiramenting with this year. But since the school year hasn’t actually started, I guess I’ll just have to leave you with this…
😇 time to go back to the crazy life!
I’ve been working with Art to Remember for four or five years to help raise money for my art program. They have some new products this year that I’m pretty excited about, like the iPhone cases and the little ceramic trays.
I’m posting an example of the project each grade is doing as we do them.
Kindergarten will be making handprint peacocks
First graders are making owls.
Second graders will be making cute little umbrella color wheels.
Third grade will be doing warm/cool trees.
Fourth will be creating Charlotte skyline cityscapes with a rainbow sky.
Fifth grade will be showing school spirit with a bullpup paw print filled with zen tangles.
I will be updating with pictures as we complete the projects throughout the year so check back often.
