I was asked by a parent to partner with the American Red Cross to create some holiday mail with our Harris kids. These are for members of our armed forces that may be separated from their loved ones this holiday season. It was a great service project for our kiddos to be involved in! Hope they make someone's day!

The sunflowers are sky high in our garden! I'm teaching our students a little about Vincent Van Gogh this week, so we decided to bring some of the outside in! Third grade will create an oil pastel/ water color still life of sunflowers. Our fourth grade students will learn to radial weave on a sunflower loom they created from paper plates! Here are some photos to show where we are on the process!

Our school has an amazing garden. Yesterday I decided to pick a few of the fruits and veggies and teach some of my classes a little about printmaking. We discussed texture, color and shape. We created crayon rubbings of the large sunflower leaves and printed tomatoes, beans, leek blossoms, apples, strawberries and kale.
