Projects to Try Board, I came across this Haring Shake video and couldn't stop laughing. This was it. Keith Haring it was.

I love when students practice at home!!
So this happened this week...first time in 9 years of teaching.
And so did this. Someone secretly organized my sharpies. All is not lost.
While one 3rd grade class waited for their clay looms to come out of the kiln, we did some relaxing henna hands. The other 3rd grade class was glazing this week.
First graders finished up these beautiful weaved hearts! Check out the whole project here.
|Corner up, time to make coils.|
Second graders are getting their walls up on their slab boxes. We spent 2-3 days rolling out slabs. They roll their own and use a stencil to cut the squares. Once they get 5 squares, we put one corner up using slip and score. Then where their is a crack, we make a coil to fill it in. Then we blend. A lot. They use finger, popsicle sticks and a sponge to smooth the inside until you don't see cracks.
|Beautiful and smooth corner. This student loves clay. He is working so incredibly hard!|
Friday was a half day and our PBIS celebration. I was supposed to take 25 1st-6th graders outside and build snowmen. Well, there was a windchill advisory and I had to improvise.
How was your week? How many snow days have you had?
