We stayed very busy during the month of October. Kindergarten continued to practice the fine motor skills of tracing, coloring, cutting, and gluing. They also explored colors, and textures in a fun and bright Cassie Stephens lesson.
Second grade spent October creating these awesome clay bells! They used air dry clay and texture plates to make these. They painted them with tempera paint, so I gave them a "bath" in watered down acrylic medium to give them a clear coat protectant. The students loved the satisfying sound of their ringing bells! :)
Third grade also created 3-D art in October as they made their paper mache flower vases. Each vase armature was built with an empty plastic bottle at the center, so these vases are water tight and can be used to hold fresh cut flowers. And they look AWESOME!
