Today was Day One of our tree mosaic project. Ms Nickerson and Ms C were very helpful! We are working with 12 awesome students that seem excited about art! After a lengthy talk about safety and new vocabulary, we broke into groups.
One group nipped tiles to create 3 inch letters for the top of our mosaic. It will read 'Our School Is' and then under it will be word tiles with positive words about the school. We will work next week to try to finish the rest of the letters-those curvy letters are proving to be quite a challenge, and the students are doing great!
The second group broke pre-scored glass rectangles and worked to determine how they wanted the border to look. They came up with a great design, and we will be able to tape the rectangles into place next week. By week three we should be ready to learn to cut glass.
Things were busy and I only took three pictures! Here they are:
