Examples of fabrics from Uganda, Ghana, and India showed EES first graders how textile-makers use pattern in their work. The most fundamental feature of the patterns that students observed is that patterns repeat, which makes patterns very different from "designs" on clothing.
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Kilburn's class built gingerbread houses!!
Last week, in art class, students practiced identifying the parts of a building, and drew their homes. This helped them get ready for talking about the parts of the houses they would build with gingerbread and candies.
The houses were built around milk cartons to support the structure.
Thanks so much to the parent volunteers who helped make this possible.
