Language Arts with Mr. Wenger
During the first several weeks of school we spent a lot of time establishing a strong and productive classroom community. Now, as the leaves begin to fall off the trees, we are heading into the more academic section of our school year. In Language Arts, the kids have started to work on their first personal narrative. We have introduced and practiced several writing strategies designed to help kids generate ideas worth writing about. It has been great watching the kids begin to compose stories about themes and experiences that they value! Enjoy this photo of the kids working together to prep their pumpkin for decorating to our school wide pumpkin decorating contest.
Art with Mrs. Santucci
The 5th graders have had a busy couple months in the art room. What a wonderful class of enthusiasm and creativity. So far this year we have been reviewing the elements of art as well as just completing a unit on Picasso inspired self portraits. Please visit the middle school wing soon to see your child’s fun and creative contour line drawing self portrait! Currently, we have launched into color theory and the students are busy demonstrating their color knowledge through Op Art. Please feel free to come by and visit anytime!
