In art class, 3SS is working with "The Scream" by Edvard Munch to gain a little inspiration. Click on each image to enlarge.
In Music class, G3SS made up characters, emperors, and found instruments that matched them.
Then, they made rhythms with the instruments to express their characters.
Finally, two or three characters met together and talked using the music that was created to express them.
Please take time to watch and listen to these characters meet. You can view the videos in our 'Student Videos' tab at the top of the page. Enjoy!
The students in 3SS were busy today practicing their presentations on their summative assessment. They listened to each other, timed each other with stopwatches, and gave feedback based on the presentation rubric. Tomorrow the students will be recorded so they can view their own presentation and complete a self assessment.
The students have been busy expressing themselves through the use of new IT tools. First, they chose pictures to remember the first quarter of the school year and stored them in iPhoto. Next, they created a song to match the mood of the pictures in GarageBand. Finally, they used their iPhoto pictures and GarageBand song to create a movie in iMovie. Please check out our student created movies in our new tab ‘Student Videos’ at the the top of the page.

Our 5th Guest Artist
Today we went to the MPR room for are 5thGuest Artist who was Mrs. McCarthy. Her art was cooking! Then she showed us some cupcakes that she had made. Finally she told us that we could make some! We were allowed to have one big one and two small ones. On the big one I did a flower and I used a marsh mellow cut in 5 pieces, green icing, an M&M for the middle and then sprinkles. The other one I did a pig. It was really fun.
