Every Day is Earth Day

Once again this year, my "earth conscious" husband collected tons of cardboard on his travels as a contractor on the OBX.  So all kindergartners and 2nd graders made houses from this cardboard to remind us the "Earth is Our Home".  All 1st graders made bees to not only remind us of the importance of bees, but also to say "Bee Kind" to the earth!  Enjoy!

Tunnel Books!

My 5th graders are amazing!  They have worked so hard on our latest project.  We blended literacy, drawing and paper sculpture to form Tunnel Books. Tunnel Books are 3-d books in which each page is a layer of one big scene that leads the viewer to all the way to the background.  The fact that each student was allowed to choose their own theme added to their interest this project.  Please enjoy the following examples of tunnel books. If you happen to be at the school, come by the library to see the entire class display of books! WOW!
