students in grades 4th & 6th created Japanese Koinorobi (carp streamers). Japan celebrates Koinorobi in May, for children’s day, but we thought the carp streamer kites would be a great sculpture to display before the fishing tournament!
Pinwheels for Peace
Students in grades k5-6th, and 9th grade created pinwheels for peace in honor of Internatioal Peace Day, which is always 9/21. Students discussed what it meant to them to be peaceful/at peace. Many stated that it means quiet, kind, and nice to each other. Students also believe that we should all be peaceful more than just one day a year!
k5 students created a self portrait. They listened to the story “the Dot” by Peter Reynolds and created their own dot art. K5 students learned a little about firework safety and then created their own safe fireworks. They are excited to see the fireworks at the Fishing Tournament!
1st grade students listened to a story about crazy hair day and then created a self portrait with crazy hair. 1st grade listened to a song about monsters with manners and then created their very own monster with manners! 1st grade students students learned a little about firework safety and then created their own safe fireworks.

2nd grade students listened to a story about I like me, then created a self portrait. 2nd grade students created foam fish and are very excited to go to the Fishing Tournament!
3rd grade students created a super hero self portrait. Students created a paper fishing game to practice catching “the big one”. They also are very excited about the Fishing Tournament.
4th grade students have been working on a self portrait (utilizing foreshortening) between projects like the pinwheels and the fish. Once complete, I will post. Students created a Japanese Koinorobi out of water bottles, which were displayed with the 6th grade fish streamers! They are all excited to go to the Fishing Tournament.
