This is the week of the Operas! We finished painting our scenery, and we’re gearing up for a unit on stories and storytelling. We just started working with a high school on an American Indian reservation. I’ll be visiting that school next week. As we write stories to send to them, we watched an example of a great story:
Harold Lloyd’s clock scene from Safety First
One third grader said, “If Justin Beiber were up there, I’d climb that building fast!”
Another third grade artist said, “They should call it ‘climb-a-building’.”
Our ideas for collaborating with the American Indian high schoolers.
The wonderful third graders are planning the set design for their operas. All completely designed by them! Next week we’ll be painting! Each photograph represents the brainstorm from each class. These kids are SMART!
