Science Week

Loving our multi media minibeasts artwork that we have been creating this week. Some pieces were completed on Monday with an incursion visit from the Field of Mars, and some were completed today. It was a lot of fun and my students enjoyed the hands on process. This beautiful artwork is made with real blossoms! My students sourced these blossoms from our school grade and with the help of our gardening expert Pressed the flowers. Today the flowers were dry enough to add to our artwork. 

Spots, worms, and hives!

As we continue to explore the wonderful world of minibeasts.. we begin to ponder how many spots has a lady bug got? 🐞We also spent some time researching what is beneath our soil… earth worms! Room 4 is a hive of activity. My students have been as busy as bees.

Dragonflies and Luna Moths

Today we made beautiful stained glass dragonflies. They’re so simple to make and really effective. Great for kids with vision impairment. Luna moths! These beautiful creatures now grace the walls of our classroom. The kids did a great job – needless to say they’re Eric Carle inspired. 

Frogs in the Pond

I love how this artwork turned out! Looking forward to hand it up in our classroom on Monday. The kids enjoyed painting the frogs.. and a big shout out to Suzie for cutting out all of the frogs. 

Charlotte’s Web

Today we enjoyed reading Charlotte’s Web. I love sharing stories with my class. This is a book that I’ve always enjoyed and it was magical to see my students respond to the book in the same way that I did. Then it was time to create an artwork based on the story.

Tiny Lady Bugs

I love this artwork that we finished today.. look closely at the cute little lady bugs walking across the leaves. My students painted a whole page green.. I then cut it into leaf shapes and then they glued on the lady bugs. This was then pasted into the plants (which I quickly painted) and we are done! Very cute!

Spider Web Art 🕸🕷

Today we had fun with this spider web activity. I drew a web using a candle.. so my students didn’t know it was there. Then we painted over the wax and suddenly the web appeared. My students loved it. The look of surprise on their faces was beautiful. It’s why I love teaching.. bringing joy to some special kids also brings joy to my heart.
