JK has been learning about Under-the-Sea animals. As an art project, students drew various sea animals (jellyfish, crabs, octopus, turtle, fish, starfish) in pastels and painted on top with blue paint.

Junior Kindergarteners tell us how they feel

“Today I feel……” is a project the Junior Kindergarterners created using various artistic mediums. Discussing our feelings before hand, and also using our classroom “feelings cube”, students expressed how they felt during circle time. The skills they worked on were tracing and painting inside a circle, gluing the “googly” eyes and button nose, as well as cutting and gluing the crepe paper hair.
