Dia de los Muertos masks

17 Oct

I am very happy to say the arts classes were a huge success. Every student was excited to see who their teacher would be for the activities and all of them came back beaming over the experience they had. With the initial kinks worked out we will be doing it again, the fifth grade as soon as next week (the sixth is going to science camp, so they won’t be part of the rounds this time).

My Dia de los Muertos masks we a hit, and the kids enjoyed learning about the important holiday and culture it represents. The art was a lot of fun, and the level of creativity every one of them showed was astounding. Below are some pictures of what went on in my class.

More to come as the arts classes take place. Tomorrow is the Great California Shake-Up (a statewide, carefully planned earthquake drill). It’s definitely going to be another great, and exciting, day.
