Wag A Tail
Y5 artists continued to learn about Lois Ehlert. We read her short story called "Wag A Tail" and create collages inspired by her use of paper. We also practiced cutting with the fancy scissors to get unique edges on our paper cut outs.
To get us ready for Winter Break we read "The Mitten" and created our own mittens inspired by the story. Students traced their hands on construction paper and then created patterns on their mittens to make them their own. We talked about symmetry and how what you do to one mitten you have to apply to the other mitten as well to make them match!
