Pre-vacation Stations! EES

You really can't do anything too serious the day before vacation.  Kids just want to have a little fun, and frankly, so do I! This means that we wrap up our projects and have a class where students make choices to go to stations.

They have been busy making cards, jewelry, trying computer art programs, free painting, and more!

In the picture above, students are using play dough and tools. Fourth graders in particular loved this station, opening a little bakery where customers could place orders for fancy desserts. I loved to see them loosen up and play creatively together!

The EES art room has two new Buddha Boards students have been enjoying. Using only water and a brush to paint, they are a mess-free addition to the art room.  Think about getting one for home- they are a terrific and fun way for kids to practice spelling words, let go of anxieties, and build fine motor skills.

Classes have been enjoying the blocks, building elaborate cities, and testing out physics laws.

Coloring to relax
These stations let the ideas flow!
This student asked if I had any thick paperboard, and came back to show me this!

Have a fabulous, creative, and restful vacation!
