end of the day cleaning!

what i found in my bag after school today...



the kids like to put found "treasures" into my bag while we walk- most of the time i don't even notice! 

an introduction to art analysis...


stations were set up around the classroom, each station displaying a piece of artwork. we challenged the students to study each image and choose one adjective to describe it.







julian's list included colorful, mysterious, and jocular (a previous vocab word!)...

our field trip to... the sony wonder lab!


before going inside we stopped for some lunch... and to work on our word power challenge! 















experimenting with sea salt, watercolors, and complimentary colors...
