First Graders at the Roberts Sail Away!

After learning about the size of objects near and far, first graders at the Roberts drew sailboats near and far and also added in a background to help us imagine where these boats were sailing away to. We finished off our pencil and crayon drawings with watercolors to create a watercolor resist. The white crayon was the most exciting surprise of all!

Where The Wild Things Are

We read “Where The Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak together as a class. Students looked at the illustrations and observed the similarities and differences between the wild things. After some brainstorming and a lesson on how to use oil pastels, students created their own original own wild things. Students even had a chance to share what type of noise their wild thing might make!
