Preschool completed several different activities throughout Hispanic Heritage Month. Some of the activities that took place were reading a story, listening to music, playing the guitar, and creating their own guitars and music notes. Awesome work, preschoolers!
Room 112 has been busy learning about Hispanic Heritage. They worked on this theme throughout Hispanic Heritage Month and participated in an Arts Integration unit that combined what they learned about Guatemalan Worry Dolls with their love of fidgets. In Guatemala, people tell their worries to small dolls that they leave under their pillows. They learned that it is important to talk about the things that worry you or make you feel nervous. Everyone in 112 has something that they like to request to help them feel better. Then, they took that a step farther and made their own Worry Fidgets. Everyone was very creative and there wasn’t a “worry” to be found in the room all day!
Class 127 learned about the three branches of the US Government. They read about what each branch does and how they're all responsible for keeping the other branches balanced. Pictured are Constitution trees with the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches. Great work!
One of our friends conducted an experiment making an apple volcano! He chose his lava color to be pink and enjoyed watching the chemical reaction as he used a dropper to add vinegar to the baking soda. Great job!
Throughout ESY, the students had fun learning about an artist named Keith Haring; take a look at their artist inspired creations! Students used a variety of art supplies, including paper mache, and different textures in their art.
Happy Monday! A beautiful start to another summer week - make it a good one!
It's National Ice Cream Month! Did you know that July was declared National Ice Cream Month in 1984? Class 14 read about the history of ice cream, followed a recipe, and got to make fresh vanilla ice cream! Cooling off on these hot ESY days! Enjoy the weekend - and grab some ice cream!!!

During May, 2w learned about Paul Klee and his artistic style while also reviewing shapes and colors. Students learned how multiple shapes can be put together to form pictures and how an artist can use colors to help the viewer experience different emotions. The final activity was to use tangrams, colored shapes of varying sizes, to create a unique piece of art. Hope you enjoy the work!!!!
