What's New...

It's been a week, if not more since I've posted on here. One of my students had to gently remind me that I haven't posted anything in awhile. I have to say, she was quite diplomatic about it. Thank you!!
It has been a very busy 3 weeks with Report Cards, Parent Teacher Interviews and then Teacher's Convention. Next week is the last week before Spring Break (although my Spring Break starts in one week. Hooray!!!!). I'll be travelling to warm and sunny Arizona. I can't wait to get away from winter. It just doesn't seem to want to go away. 
We've been learning about making healthy choices with our food and learning to incorporate exercise into our lives. I came up with a great idea to incorporate art and healthy eating. So, I brought in several different kinds of fruit for the kids to build 3D structures. I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised by the creations the students came up with. Here they are:

  2. Hi Grade 2,
    Your Fruit art looks fantastic - what a great idea! I tried to pick my favourite, but it was just too hard. :) My class has been learning about `Healthy habits' this term too. The children made fruit kebabs with apples, bananas, grapes, rockmelons, watermelon and pineapple. They were delicious! I challenged them to make patterns and they did a great job. I wonder where you got all your great ideas for your creations from?

  3. love the fruit art idea, your students might like this fun food face website too, We are studying food groups right now and thinking of doing this one. Love your ideas.

  4. OMG, the blueberry moustache was the best!! This is such a cute idea! I'll have to try and work it in. Thanks for the inspiration!
