virtual trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art allowed us to take a "closer look" at the works of Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. The link shown above is a DOTS DOTS DOTS sing along.
A book of looking at art
through the eyes of children and Dots!
Spot the dog and a dot headed Ms. Murphy greet families to Open House night and invite them to create family dots. Thanks to Barnes and Noble for lending us Spot the dog for the evening.
Spot was the highlight of the evening. Families were excited to snap a candid photo of their children having a great time. Spot was quite the celebrity under a lightning storm of camera flashes.
I collaborated with our art teacher and she focused on her lessons on ancient civilizations and cave paintings. These are samples of foil etchings her students created. She also let 2nd graders crawl under their desks to get a feel for cave art.
Upper grades created original art that they cut into quarters and exchanged with other grade levels. Don't they look great?
Well, you might have guessed by now but I haven't done a great deal of reading this week other than Dot Day reading and a lot of research on education topics.
I look forward to setting aside some time for Young Adult fiction for an upcoming Twitter chat and for our first annual Teen Book Fest by the Bay. Yesh, it's tough to stay on top of emergent reading through Young Adult reading. I read all levels since I work with kids from age 3 to university students. I find all level books fascinating.
