Fiesty Fifth Graders~ Greek Vases

 Wow. There's a lot to say about these fantastic vases my fifth graders worked on for quite a while. There were times I seriously didn't think we'd make it to the finish line, but we did and I'm super proud of them!
 Some were a bit crooked after drying, but this resourceful fifth grader decided it looked more like a water pitcher so she ditched the second handle.
 I love it.
 Some were worried about their vase being lopsided or lumpy and bumpy but I reminded them the vase was to be a couple thousand year old replica so it was all good!
 It was a mess let me tell ya. To paper mache and clean up in 50 minutes was a race....

 ..and when one class didn't finish and the room temp overnight caused several balloons to deflate many had to start over.
 But we did it!

 Now Mrs. Cline is searching for even more paper mache ideas, so bring on the gloopy glop!!

Krazy Kinders~ Christmas Tree

Kindergartners used their cutting skills to cut various stars. There were stars with 5 points and stars with 8 points!
 Then we decorated them and with the help of a few fifth graders and second graders created a beautiful Christmas tree in the hall.
Happy Holidays Students and families at Eagle View Elementary!

Fantastic First Graders~ Ancient Greek Columns

 First Graders studied the different types of columns and looked at pictures of the Parthenon!
 They found that there are many buildings today that have columns and some students even found them at their house!
 We also learned about mosaic art and how some columns were not only functional but also decorative works of art...
...like these!

Thrilling third Graders~ Value Pumpkins

 Third graders are learning about value! Making tints and shades of orange were perferct for fall pumpkins. We decided to spice them up with a bit of patterns and add a neutral background. Love how they look like a night sky!

Krazy Kinders~ Monsters

 Kindergarteners were read the story "The Monster in the Backpack" by Lisa Moser. They painted the fur and turned it into a collage by adding paper, pom poms and googly eyes. I love the expression! they were especially excited to figure out they too would have a monster in their backpack when it was time to take them home!

Fantastic First Graders~ Splatter Bats

 First Graders learned about the many tools that you can paint with. They were surprised at how many there were! Our night sky was created with a rubber band brush, rolling marbles and toothbrush sprays. Remember kids, now that you're experienced with that toothbrush, no toothpaste sprays on your bathroom mirror!

Fiesty Fifth Graders~ Glowing Pumpkins!

 These oil pastel pumpkins are huge...18x24 size!

 Although it was messy, they love working big.

 They were allowed to choose up to 5 colors for the inside and then different colors for the outside glow

 I love the variation in color and the blending they worked so hard on.

 The art room tables are still a mess, but it was totally worth it!
