Chapel

A few highlights of the children presenting the books of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth  at chapel.  I know they will never forget these stories!

Just a portion of our chapel presentation:

As the children entered chapel, Mrs. Clinton shared this silly song about the book of Judges.  The same creators also brought us Veggie Tales.

Pastel Pumpkins

Love these pastel drawings of pumpkins that the children made in art this week!

Mrs. McGuire, art teacher extraordinaire, asked the children to observe and then draw pumpkins while they discussed seasonal changes.  They blended oil pastels to document their observations on paper.  Vocabulary included line, contour, shape, color, contrast, and observational drawing.

Opinions:
Everyone should study spiders. Spiders are the coolest!  Spiders are gross. Spiders are scary. Spiders are weird.  piders are fun to study.
