Family Time is Worth Every Second- Mrs. Morris’ 2nd Grade Class

Our students put it best, “We love spending time with our families! Games and vacations are our favorite! But it doesn’t matter what we do or where we go as long as we’re together!”  With the help of our parent volunteers, your children helped develop a very cool chess board and USA map out of cork board to plan your future vacations. In addition, our class will be making a wall clock in the upcoming week to make sure we make the time to spend with our families.

Time to Enjoy Clock – Mrs. McKnight’s Third Grade Class

After Mrs. McKnight’s 3rd graders studied an extensive math unit on “time,” they decided to take things into their own “hands” and build a clock to share their new knowledge.  They used a metal tooling technique and embossed copper foil to portray what they “take time to enjoy!” They then used a black acrylic wash to give them an antiqued appearance. Their spectacular art becomes the hours and minutes on a clock made from a repurposed wine barrel donated from Woodinville’s Stevens Winery. As time ticks by each child’s piece of art on this beautiful wine barrel wall clock, you will be reminded to take time to enjoy the little things through the eyes of a child!
