Jackson Pollock Artist Study in Grade Two
Learning about Cubism in Grade Three Art
Grade three students learned how shapes can form images of the figure, by studying Pablo Picasso’s paintings and learning about the style of cubism. Students continued to question why artists choose to make artwork and how art changes and develops over time. Children used acrylic paint to create their figures while learning how to blend and mix colors.
Learning French Through Games
On Thursday’s French class, 1C played a game called Qu’est-ce qui se passe? (What’s going on?). Madame Severloh read a sentence and students had to decide whether picture number one or picture number two matched her sentence. They lifted up a card to show which one they thought. In the photos below, students listened to the sentence, Un gland tombe sur la tête de la poule Maboule. (An acorn fell on Maboule the chicken). This was a great way for students to demonstrate their knowledge of French vocabulary we’ve learned so far and to gain exposure to written French!
