Lunch Bunches with Mrs. Jaslow

PK was learning about feelings today. They looked at pictures of vegetables and fruits making faces and had to guess what emotion they were feeling.  Then, they practiced their silly face (like the kiwi) and the nervous face (like the adorable scallion).  They were having a hard time making the nervous face because they thought Mrs. Jaslow looked so silly! 


4th Grade at Home

For Earth day, fourth graders learned all about Found Object art and also Mandalas. They learned that mandalas can hold symbolic and meditative meaning beyond their vibrant appearance. They were assigned a Found Object Mandala Challenge to:
Option 1:
Create a mandala using objects you find around the house/reused or recycled objects.
Option 2: 
Create a mandala using objects you gather from nature.

Listerine Original won!
