As we prepared for our Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Celebration, my kindergarten class had many discussions about Dr. King. Students asked important questions about race, identity, and values. My hope is to create an ongoing dialogue with students where they can freely explore, express, and appreciate their uniqueness and beauty, amidst their similarities and differences.
This week, my seventh and eighth grade Spanish students finished up our projects on Puerto Rico, recreating an open air market, Plaza las Americas.
What’s everybody doing on a Friday at Friends School of Minnesota? I decided to walk through the building and snap photos of school life at about 1:30 p.m. Pretty neat what goes on around here!
In art class, seventh and eighth graders got their eyes and observation skills in gear by making “cut-away drawings.”
Third and fourth grade students have been learning about creating depth using atmospheric perspective.
In art class, seventh and eighth graders made candelabras for their Dia de los Muertos project.
Grades 5/6 started the year off in art class by creating a “similar element collage.”
At the beginning of a new school year, kindergarten, first and second graders spend several art classes exploring what they can do with different art tools.
