This has been an interesting year for me so far, to say the least. So many changes for me. Iâ€™m finally at my own school after teaching for 10 years! No one to collaborate (or talk) with. Iâ€™m no longer â€œMrs. Mosleyâ€, Iâ€™m â€œMs. Sirnaâ€. Iâ€™m assuming that will change when the 1st graders go off to middle school. And a classroom of my own, no cart!!! Because of all this I feel the need to live up to my predecessorâ€™s amazing ability to get quality artwork from our students. Here are a few of the assignments weâ€™ve been working on:
2nd grade worked on an unconventional color wheel.
3rd felt out warm and cool colors in a seascape.
4th did a great job with understanding atmospheric perspective and complementary colors.
6th grade wowed me with their work based on Jasper Johns.
Weâ€™re still working on 5th grade. Since theyâ€™re at the end of the day I miss their classes most often. As soon as all the classes finish the same assignment Iâ€™ll have some images to share.
