Focus on the Arts Friday
1st grade has been exploring storytelling. We read the story of Mrs.Wishy Washy then retold the story by acting out the different animals. Then students created character hats to do their own character performances in class. 1st graders are also learning about parts of the stage and how to stand on stage so the audience can see them at all times.
3rd grade has been learning about the elements of Drama and practice stage directions by participating in a movement activity around the room. Even our virtual friends are included in the fun and learning!
5th grade is working hard on their mixed media zentangle paintings inspired by Japanese artist Hokusai. Hokusai is best known for his woodblock print series including the iconic print "The Great Wave off Kanagawa." Stay tuned for their finished results!
