Exploring Clay – Grade 1


First grade students have been spending some time in November and December working with clay.  Our first day was an exploration, where students were asked to see what they could do to the clay with their hands and how many words they could come up with that described what they did.  Each class amazed me with the long list they came up with.  Check out the Wordle which is made up from the word list from all 3 classes.  

Students have learned and used roll, poke, and pinch, to create a pinch pot.  Room 4’s pinch pots are currently on display in the glass case in the front lobby, and Room 3 & 5’s will be on display after the holiday break.  Be sure to come in and check them out before they go home!
