Welcome school year!

I am so excited to start my third year at the wonderful SMS! Every year, I always struggle on what to hang on the bullitin board since students have yet to create anything for me to hang. This year, I decided to paint my favorite quote!! And as soon as my artists start creating, I will be happy to cover it with their fantastic artwork! 


Towards the end of the year when the summer is quickly approaching, we all (teachers included) can get a bit silly and crazy. So this year I decided that we needed some ZEN. We created zentangle art!! Zentangles are an art form that uses specific patterns and lines that many find calming and relaxing. It was exactly what we needed!! Students were asked to pick nah object to showcase on the middle with color and then at least 6 sections of different Zentangles around the object. My eighth graders really enjoyed this project. A group of boys decided to work together and each chose a different superhero logo!!! Loved their idea and that they worked together!!! They all really loved it and many did more than one and asked to keep the zentangle packets.
