Pre-K and K Chicks

Look what's hatching in Pre-K and Kindergarten!

First, the students drew a circle and a triangle and painted them yellow. These shapes represent the chick's head and body. Next, the shapes we're cut out and glued to blue paper. Eggshells and other details were added to create the adorable chick hatching from an egg. Finally, tissue paper grass and ripped paper rain were added to create a spring environment. 


The above chicks were created by students in Ms. Yost's class.

2nd Grade: Sea Life


Miss Nisnick's class created a wonderful sea life project.

First, the students made a fish using Crayola Model Magic Clay. The fish was painted to appear realistic. Next, the top portion of the canvas board was painted blue to represent water while ripped paper was glued to the bottom portion to represent sand. Details were painted such as coral and seaweed. Finally, a wooden starfish was added and the clay fish was glued to the canvas board.
