Week 12... Caution, Students at Work

Most of all the grade levels started a new project this week, so it may be a few weeks before pictures are posted.

Also, if you haven't had a chance to vote for our Bradley scarecrow, please do! Bradley has a chance at winning a $500 grant. It is simple and fast. Click the link and comment with the word "VOTE" in the comment section! Voting will end on Friday, November 15th.

Kinder students are working on their fine motor skills: Cutting, ripping, and gluing. Next they will be making a mixed media art project to celebrate Native American Heritage Month. 

1st grade students recently learned about American symbols in their home room class, so to continue on that topic... We are making "American Symbol" art in art class. Students first made their own American flag and then added their choice of an American symbol that they were familiar with. We then added red, white, and blue yarn to add texture to our art. These great pieces of art should be hanging at the White House.

2nd grade students are celebrating Native American Heritage Month in the art room and we are creating art using Native American symbols. For this project, we are using brown butcher paper, dried beans, and yarn. I can't wait for these to be completed and hung in the hallways at Bradley.

3rd graders have become made scientists and are creating their own "Mad Science Lab". So fun! We are using watercolor paint for this project. Students are using all the skills they have learned from previous projects and combining them together - perspective, overlapping, and object placement to create balance in art.

4th grade students are creating "Fall Leaf" art. We created a leaf template and will be using the leaf template to produce art that shows pattern repetition, balance, movement, and the elements of art.  We will be using our old markers and turning them into watercolor paint for this project.

5th grade students are starting their "Fall Harvest" project next week and the project will take us about 4 weeks to complete. I originally wanted to start the project this week, but with voting, field trips and chorus... we are behind schedule. This week they are helping to create flags for our International Festival scheduled for November 19th. Other 5th graders are also catching up on other projects that they haven't had a chance to complete.
