December Doings

I just wanted to share more pictures of our last few December days. Christmas was definitely the main topic of conversation in both the Art room AND the Computer lab so what better way to capitalize on their excitement than to have December themed projects!  From "decorating" trees to making ornaments our students' smiles are sure to show their Christmas spirit!

Art and Computer Meet

Sometimes a computer class assignment offers the perfect opportunity for the students to tap into their creative side. Recently our kindergarten students sharpened their mouse skills to create art in the style of Piet Mondrian. Here are a few of their masterpieces! Aren't they great?

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from some of our PDS Fourth Graders! This project gave our students an opportunity to practice skills they are learning in Microsoft Word in a fun and creative way. Each student selected a verse to type, chose fonts and font sizes, and inserted a picture to create these cool mini-posters!

Typing and Topography

Our students have been busy, busy, busy! In Computer Lab the Third Grade is celebrating two brand new Intermediate  typists! Congratulations, James and Thomas! 

In the Art Room the Fifth Graders made beautiful pattern drawings illustrating the topography found in the western states.

Mavis, Measurement, and Mini Posters?

So when we aren't making art, we are busy in the Computer Lab! Exactly what are we doing? Sometimes we practice touch typing with the Mavis Beacon program or math skills on www.fun4the brain.com or www.starfall.com. Lately, the fourth through graders have also been making some really cool Word documents.

More Georgia...

Our study of Georgia O'Keeffe has inspired my students to make so many beautiful artworks that I just had to share some more of them!
