It’s the beginning of a new month and we still have amazing weather! With Chalk the Block coming up, we decided we would take some practice for this week’s Fun Friday! We loved seeing inspiration before we could create our own drawings. We enjoyed creating art outside on such a nice day and working together on creating masterpieces, some on our own as well! We will be ready for Chalk the Block!
Me and my class did a very fun, but challenging activity. Each table of 5 students made a cup pyramid. First, we all had a stack of five cups. We also had 5 rubber bands tied to a rubber band in the middle. We all had to pull on the rubber bands on the sides to get a cup. We all pulled the rubber bands to stretch out the rubber band in the middle around and onto the cup. Then, we let go to tighten it. We all then carefully lifted the rubber band and the cup. Then, we put each cup in place. When we were finished there were three cups on the bottom, 2 in the middle, and one on the top.

Meadow Brooks third grade participated in our first culture day this last week! This is a fun and unique opportunity for our students to learn about different cultures and see the world through a different lens. This last week our students got to learn about Wales, England. A big shout out to Mrs. Pendlebury for taking the time to come in and share her personal experiences and life in Wales. The students especially enjoyed learning about the Welsh language and that there are currently more sheep than people! We look forward to the next month's experience and culture
This month in art we are learning about still-life art. We talked about what makes art still-life and learned a little bit about the artist Paul Cezzane. In kindergarten and first grade the students got to draw apples on a colorful table cloth like Cezzane. Second and third graders drew still-lifes of pumpkins and learned about shading. The big kids (fourth, fifth and sixth graders) drew a pot of succulents from observation and learned how all art is made of basic shapes.
On Friday we celebrated "Johnny Appleseed Day" with an apple graph and applesauce. We got to taste each type of apple and vote for our favorite kind. Yellow and green almost tied but in the end yellow apples were the favorite. We created a 'pictograph' and then used that information to make a 'bar graph'. We all had a lot of fun!
