What Did You Do Today ??? :)

We'll show you some April snow!!!!

Near the beginning

Getting started

Shaping our styrofoam to resemble our maquettes made from clay

Delaney:  "This is the easiest job in the world!"
(Holding the styrofoam together:)

Lessons from Mrs. Purney

The very beginning (pics not in order).  Notice the clean floor and defined
edges of the sculptures in waiting.

Before we began.  Mrs. Purney came with the styrofoam
arranged to semi-resemble the maquettes students made.

Discussing figurative language

Figurative language

Max...Making sense of figurative language in his own way

Yep.  Pretty much how we all looked at the end!

Kaiyli and Emma hard at work!

The after shot.  Looks like icebergs and ice chunks in a mucky sea.

Hudson, right after our practice tornado drill.
(Notice the styrofoam on his eyelashes.)

 A little extra fun right before we cleaned up.

Lookin' good.  Takin' shape.

The AFTER picture.  Can you believe it?!?!?  While we expect to see tiny little styrofoam balls for weeks to come, the kids and adults did a marvelous job cleaning up.....until the CEMENT tomorrow!
