6th grade Working Away

Just like 5th grade, 6th grade is working through testing, vacation days and altered schedules to finish up their projects. We are still finishing up our color wheel projects and we have been enjoying some fun art starter videos that have to do with color. You can check them out here:
This is always a fun review... even if it is stuck in your head for a long time.

We watch a bit of this one (start at about 5:20)

The students have been doing some amazing work on creating unique color wheels. Check out Artsonia to see what they are doing. 

The "Wednesday 6th graders" are doing great on their fiber art projects. They are finishing up their embroidery images and getting ready to start on sewing their creatures. I can't wait to share some of their work here. 

5th grade Just Working Away...

It may seem crazy that we haven't started anything new but with Maps testing, Labor Day and more we are still just working away on our current projects. By next week I will have finally seen everyone twice for each project... So a quick review:

5th graders are working away on creating their "awful alphabet creatures" and their colored pencil skills. We started by reading the book "The Absolutely Awful Alphabet" by Mordicai Gerstein. It is full of absolutely awful creatures created from the alphabet.
Everyone has worked on their planning sheet, coming up with two different ideas and working with colored pencils to create some quality value scales.
They are working on their final copies during art class and during Map Testing time. I am super excited to see these finished and uploaded to Artsonia in the next few weeks.  I am also excited to read all the alliterations they will have come up with for their images.
