Kindergarten students at the McGlynn are learning how to use scissors carefully. Inspired by the season, students created bowls of fresh picked apples using cut paper and oil pastel. Using our helper hand to hold paper, students carefully cut squares of paper into round juicy apples. It was tricky to cut those sharp corners, but they did it! Students arrange their fruit in their cut paper bowls, and pasted. Detail was later added using oil pastel. Enjoy the work by Mrs. Galante’s K students.
Each year we reintroduce ourselves to the color wheel. Over the years student relationships have grown stronger with color and progress has been made. Students in Mrs. Brearley’s class created a color wheel featuring hue, tint and shade. Mixing colors precisely was no easy task, but these students handles it wonderfully. Enjoy!
What’s in a name anyway? Well in first grade at the McGlynn there is more to our names than just letters. In this follow-up line lesson, Mrs. Bello’s students incorporated lines from their name, decorative line, space and color to create these Kandinsky inspired compositions. Many students are still working in their pieces, but they are just too good not to share!
