Mosaics, Mosaics, Mosaics

We must have gone through at least 30 glue sticks today as the students continued to work on their mosaics.

Most of the younger students were able to complete theirs today, while the older kids are still gluing, gluing, gluing.

The first/second grade class and the third/fourth graders also learned a wee bit about Pythagoras and geometry. The students who finished their mosaics used stencils and pattern blocks to make shape pictures.

Next week will be our last class before the one week break. We'll be wrapping up projects from these first few weeks, but continuing with ancient Greece after the break. Greek theater masks are coming up, and I am in need of copious amounts of newspaper for paper mache masks. If you get the paper, please send old newspapers to class with your child. I'm still collecting paper towel and toilet paper rolls for a future unit on Paul Klee, so keep sending those in, too! Thanks so much!
