K Fairy Houses

After looking at the book Fairy Houses... Everywhere! by Barry & Tracy Kane, brainstorming, and creating sketches, we went for a walk in the wood to collect material for our fairy houses.
Ethan, Page, Brett, and Payson are talking about the fairy playground they are building.
We put food out for the fairies.

Reed found this branch that was in the shape of a hook that could be used for a swing, a slide, or a whole bunch of different things.

Spencer and Ryan hatch a plan for their expansive fairy house.

Look at all the fairy food and umbrellas to keep the fairies dry!

Lexi created beds of leaves and sand dollars perfect for fairy naps.

Olivia and Reed created their fairy house using an existing rock and stump as 2 of the walls.

Look at all the fun things to do at the fairy playground! There are slides, and swings!

Critique Day

Being able to talk about and reflect about your art is an important part of the artistic process. Students in grades 1-8 evaluated, analyzed, and tried to understand their own artwork and that of their peers in the art show this spring by having a critique. We had a good time discussing and writing about the work!

Homes for Haiti

Homes for Haiti has become an ongoing project at SBS since the earthquake this winter, student created pins and magnets to be sold at the spring art show to raise money for the people of Haiti. All proceeds have been donated to aid the Red Cross.

Spring Art Show

All students in K-8 selected 2 pieces to be shown in the art show this year. They titled their pieces and prepared them for the show by mounting them onto pieces of colored paper!

What a fantastic show! Congratulations!!!
