Hello there,
I didn't get a chance to update last week. Sorry about that..... Fifth grade started their clay mug project. Usually fifth grade does clay at the end of the school year, but the last couple years we have been scrambling to find the time between SOL tests to get finished. I thought we'd do it early so that we had plenty of time. Thanks to all those of you who sent in gallon size zip-loc bags. We use them to store our clay from week to week so that it doesn't dry out. With only 45 minutes of art a week, it takes many weeks to complete the project. Cleanup takes many of our minutes also. The kids love clay, each grade does a different project, but everyone does get to make something out of clay.
The other grades are working on various fall projects. I have some really nice photos of first grades fall trees. I'll try to get a few of those on for you to look at later this evening.
Check back often, and please leave a comment or two so I know you found the page...
Ms. Mellott
