Hi All! Im so jealous of all you who went to dc!!! how exciting it must
have been!!
I need some help and who better to ask than you guys!! I want to do a
different clay project this year with my 5th graders. In the past we did
slab constrution containers and it could be anything their little minds
could think of but it had to be made from slabs and be a container...
well for some reason my 5th graders seem to loose their creativity and I
would get cylinders and cubes!! some one did a cool triangular shoe
once! So Im trying to think up something fun... my kindergarteners make
clay beads, 1st make aztec clay suns, 2nd (new this year) make japanese
tea cups, 3rd make pueblo coil clay pottery and 4th make gothic
gargoyles. my school is incorporating the heirsh core ..... 5th grade
so far has been concentrating on values and still lifes and using values
to make objects look real,,,,, plus they are using ezcut for relief
printing; drawing plants from outside for the subject matter....soooooo
after all of that are there any ideas out there in cyber land!!!:)
thanks for your support, in advance:)
