Kindergarten is a magical time of discovery, learning, growing, friends and fun.
At kindergarten your child will grow socially and emotionally. Their ability to think, use and recognise language and their fine motor skills will be developed through play, art, dance, music, movement and interacting with others. Most importantly, your child will be learning to become an effective learner as they develop and extend their communication skills, build their self-confidence, learn to be creative, and develop skills that assist them with reading, writing and mathematics.[/restab] [restab title=”1st Grade”]
First and second grade just finished their radial designs using a very interesting art material, plastic bottle tops! Our class has been recycling plastic bottle tops all year long. We sorted them all according to their colors! What a wonderful way to incorporate recycling in art!

Grade 3 did a project about the water cycle.
The materials that they used were: blue construction paper, green construction paper, yellow construction paper, cotton, glue, paint, crayons, glitter.
This is how it all started:
Working in pairs, students used their own words to summarize each part of the cycle: evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. On a separate piece of paper, each pair wrote the summary in their best handwriting.
Next, students did a sketch of the project with the help of the teacher.
After the sketch was done, each pair worked on the part of the cycle that they summarized.
Students responsible for the evaporation drew an outline of a lake and colored it using crayons.
At the same time, using cotton and yellow construction paper students created a scene of white clouds and a bright sun. Drawing arrows in the direction from the lake to the clouds, students showed the process of condensation.
On the opposite edge of the blue board paper, another pair used cotton and grey paint to represent the process of precipitation. With the help of glitter, students showed how water vapor changed into liquid.
Finally, the last part of the water cycle was designed using green construction paper and blue paint. Students cut out shapes of mountains that were glued on the blue base. A river stream coming from the mountain and ending in the lake was drawn with blue paint.
The final touch of the art project were the arrows that show the direction of the cycle’s movement. At this point, the summarized texts and project’s title were glued on the board paper.
Leaving the project to dry, students cleaned up the classroom and put everything back in order. The following day, they were more than happy to see their own art work displayed in the school’s hallway.[/restab] [restab title=”4th Grade”] [/restab] [restab title=”High School”]
