Freshman Community Breakfast

On Friday, May 6, the freshmen class held a breakfast for resilient community members. The freshmen English teachers came together to create and plan this breakfast. The students began with a project that taught them about what resilience means. They created fliers and a presentation to show and present to the guests at the breakfast.

3RD grade BRAIDED pillows (Cursive Lettering)

Students learned how to braid, write their initials in cursive, sew a running stitch and embellish with buttons. They also used the sewing machines to sew a border around their pillows and hand sew them closed.

4th grade EMBROIDERED pillows/Wall hangings

Students learned how to plan out a symmetrical design and use an embroidery hoop. They took notes in their art journals on how to sew the following stitches: running, satin, cross and straight. They were also taught how to sew on a button and beads and use the sewing machines.

Here are a few examples of their hard work! Aren’t they FABULOUS?

Students were given the task of drawing with their dominant hand as they watched a “How to draw” video from Art for Kids Hub. Students chose their object to draw and it was interesting, yet comical, watching students’ figure out how to hold the pencil in the opposite hand they’re used to using and their expressions…tongues hanging out, gripping the pencil like they were carving wood and the intense looks on their faces… LOL

To add a higher level of thinking, I had students rotate their videos up-side-down and draw with both hands. The look in their eyes was priceless!
