To begin the year students did a self portrait. Recalling what they learned last year students created a self portrait to the best of their ability. I will be using their portrait to assess their growth at the end of the year.
Last year Ms. Machida (retired Music Teacher) and I earned the DTE School of the Year for Arts Integration. In honor of us receiving this award we were given free tickets to a UMS performance. The performance our 3rd and 4th Graders saw was The Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. It was amazing. The images that are below are drawing the students did after the performance. The drawing mannequins were put in different dance poses. The background was inspired by Marc Chagall's American Windows which was used for inspiration for the performance.
