Today Mr. Mike is here. The students are learning about the Water Cycle. They have taken notes, used a poster, and experimented with lesson 2 of the Land and Water Module.  The student created a land and water module in their stream tables.  They placed hot water in the table and placed plastic wrap over it. On top of the plastic wrap they placed an ice bag.  Cold and warm come together and form condensation and precipitation.  How cool it that!  Now Mr. Mike takes it further in more depth with vocabulary and drawing!  What a great lesson for all!

Last day of cartooning classes

We all got together and finished up the project for the lobby.  We all took turns painting, making a sign, and finishing up what ever had to be done.  It is placed in the conference room ready to be displayed for the fall. The summer cartooning program was a success.  The first week was very packed with students.  The second week, which was around the 4th of July, had less students due to the holiday and traveling.  It was nice to be able to give more students personal attention on the…

Today is the first day of the second week of cartooning.  Most of the students that we have are repeating from the first week of cartooning.  Each student worked on creating a character to be used when creating a story on the story board format.  Mr. Rinderle has taken one of the cardboard walls (7ft. by 6ft.) and drew two students standing with their arms on each others's shoulders.  It was drawn, traced, and cut out.  The students will begin painting it on Wednesday.  We are focusing on no…
