Cursive Skeletons

There is more than one way to get kids to work on their cursive writing skills.  The third-grade at Art City Elementary has students write their names on white art paper, fold the paper in half then cut out their names; with the scrape pieces of paper they create a head, arms, and legs . . . their name becomes the body of a skeleton.  What a fun way to make cursive writing enjoyable. Can you see their names.  One of the pictures is zoomed in on "Jane".

What Makes You Scream?

What makes you want to SCREAM?  In October Mrs Larsen's class at Art City Elementary, Springville, wrote about what makes them want to scream.  The students studied The Scream by Edvard Munch and used similar colors, lines and movement to create their own watercolors.  Using a Digital camera their picture was taken, while re-creating that famous scream face.  Their pictures were printed then cut out and glued onto their watercolor painting.  Students then wrote about what makes them scream and published their writing in the school computer lab.
