Black History Month Approaching!

February is Black History Month and we are celebrating with Maya Angelou.  The students learned about Maya and all she had accomplished in her life.  We focused on "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings."  We drew cages on music note paper (hence the "sings") and then added an oil pasteled bird.  The students were able to choose their bird and finish by mounting their cages to a black sheet of paper.  A student teacher with Mrs. Staehling found this lesson on the internet and I tweaked it a bit! Love how they turned out!

Chuck Close, Math in the Art Room

Our fourth grade students made these AWESOME Chuck Close artworks.  First, we took their picture and printed it out, then they traced their face with a sharpie, then they used rulers to grid and add symbols.  The students colored their hair, face, background, and clothing two different colors.  We had a blast doing these and they look so GOOD! Love incorporating math and art! Especially since I am marrying a math teacher!!
