Character study.

Third grade has been studying characters in their classroom so I have collaborated with them and taught the students about portraiture.  We learned how to make our characters come to life in a different way other than literature.  They also did a "wordle" with our wonderful media specialist.  Collaboration is a strong tool for the kids to learn.

Of course we have been doing different variations of heart art this week.  February is a good month to do this kind of thing.  The two artists that have inspired us this month are Chris Uphues and Jim Dine.  Our school has also declared February as nothing but kindness month.....which really should be every month if you think about it:)
