Picasso Cubist Blue Period Guitars: 2nd Grade

I saw this project on Pinterest, I think!  It was very cute but quite messy!  After the students were prepped on Picasso they were given stencils, all kinds of blue paper, newspaper, scissors, and glue and went to TOWN!  My room looked like Smurfville after but it was worth it.

Fall Mosaics: 1st Grade

1st Grade Fall Tree Mosaics!

Honey, Honey, Lion! 1st Grade Construction Paper Crayon Masterpieces!

We read Honey, Honey, Lion to the students and showed them how to draw a lion secretively!  They did not even notice what we were drawing until we got to the mane.  Such cuties!

Holy Mola! 3rd Grade Mola Hallway Display!

We used all kinds of construction paper and stencils for these beauties!  We have some really talented artists at Shayne!

Library Bulletin Board

Library Bulletin Board by Mrs. Staehling!

I am an artist: Kindergarten!

We saw this lesson on Artsonia, I believe.  It is adorable.  The kindies make popsicle stick easels and real canvas to create this work of art!  We created the velcro board so the students can put it on and take it off in the correct spot while walking down the hallway.  

Library Bulletin Board!

Julie Staehling, the bulletin board guru at it again! 

Literacy Focus Bulletin Board

My Co-Worker Julie made these Literacy Focus Stars.  The arrow points to the focus each week! Really cool.

Fun RUN!

PTA puts on quite the rockin' FUN RUN!  Here you see our own Julie Staehling and Jennifer Vaughn being brave teachers!  There were stations for the students including skateboarding,  Zumba, gymnastics, running, and many more!

This just in! Chihuly!

I was just on Pinterest scrolling and found Chihuly from Shayne Elementary from our MNPS blog when I student taught!  This was my unit for student teaching but of course Julie helped out SO MUCH!  (She is THE BEST bulletin board creator!) What a treat to find!

My Nieces Paint Birthday Party

My sister is the best party planner this side of the Mason Dixon Line.  
Here is my nieces paint party that of course I just HAD to share!

Picasso Mural for the School

So I have this plan.  
I want to take this Picasso quote and paint it as a mural on a wall at school.  
Just a thought. 
Love, Love, LOVE this quote.

“Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.”

And So It Begins!

SHAYNE BULLETIN BOARDS!  Mrs. Staehling and I spent TOO much time on the paint chip board but it was worth it...right?

Hip Hop Tigers

End of the year brings upon brighter and happier projects- for example, these Hip Hop Tigers!  We started with a VOKI
 on tigers followed by a tiger PREZI.
The students were guided by me to draw a tiger, then traced it with a sharpie and finally painted with neon biocolor paint.  After everything was dry we made what I like to call "Kanye" glasses and glued them on.  This is a project I found on an art blog some where else!  Not my own but an awesome lesson!
