Lots of Randomness

We finished up learning about bats and owls by completing a Venn Diagram.

After reading Owl Babies, they made their very own.  There were constant "Ohhs" and "Aahhs" as they were being made.  They are quite adorable and many wanted to take them home that day!!

We also completed a Halloween narrative together.  We spent the week brainstorming, creating, and illustrating our big book.  They created the story and I transcribed it to larger drawing paper. Students even shared it Friday during lunch.  I'll post the completed book next week.  It's quite an exciting story about us going Trick or Treating together and going into a haunted house.  Scary, I know!!

Harvests Arts Festival was a HUGE success!!  We listened to the middle school band in the morning and also a few University of Maine performers in the afternoon.  Olivia's mom came in to teach us more about her job as a cake decorator.  She showed many tips and tricks!! Students were then able to create their very own pumpkin cookie using frosting and sprinkles.  Nothing like A LOT of sugar on Halloween!!  They had so much fun learning and eating.

And last but not least, PTC is having an auction this year!!  They've asked teachers to complete a piece of art with their students.  Who wouldn't  a piece of artwork made from kids hanging up in their house?

Friday was the perfect day to create some art.  Each student made a heart to add to canvas I had painted gray.  Here's our finished work!! More details to come on when it will begin.

Here's the other piece we made.
