What an end to 2012! As I reflect on recent events I can only hope 2013 brings about a more peaceful universe. My heart aches for Newtown.....
In my classroom we spent the last few weeks wrapping up projects. One of my favorite was with the 3rd grade. We read the "The Division of Day and Night", a Creek legend and created beautiful collages. We used birchbark scraps I had received from a parent, deer hide scraps left over from other projects, corn husks, construction papers and tagboard. They are simply beautiful! i will post the lesson and photos soon.
My 4th grade used the iPad to create mini-plays with the corn husk dolls they had made earlier in the Fall. The Oneida Corn Husk Doll teaches children about Humility. Our task was to create a doll that taught humility and another core value (Love, Respect, Truth, Bravery, Loyalty, Wisdom). They were very creative! You can view the video if you visit my school's web site click on videos. You will also find several claymation movies made last year:
Wishing you a fabulous 2012! Kim
