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.
