Brady's Self Portrait

Brady’s Self Portrait

Student self portraits went home last week.  They put in an amazing amount of effort!  I love to see students’ personalities shining through in their art.  We used crayon, watercolor, and Sharpie.  I think they look pretty sharp with the borders!

If you’re placing an order, please return the packet to your child’s classroom teacher by this Friday, April 4th.  If not, just keep your child’s wonderful portrait and display it at home!


Snow Day

Caroline's Snow Day Painting

Caroline’s Snow Day Painting

Coffin and Gerry students were thrilled that it was snowing this morning!  To celebrate the first snow of the school year, kindergarteners put their paper animal sculptures on hold for the day and instead made snowy paintings.  First, students thought of a scene they might see in the snow: a snowman, a snow-covered tree, a snowy house, even a snowy kindergartener!  They drew their scenes with crayons and thought of details to make each one special.  Then, they used white tempera paint to add snow and transform the scene!  We thought together about all the places snow builds up when it sticks, such as on the ground, on our shoulders, on top of patio furniture, and on each branch and window sill.  Unfortunately, today’s snow didn’t stick around for the afternoon, but we’ll have our paintings to remind us!
