We started a new project called "The Fashion Bug." Teams of 5 students will create a performance that includes a fashion designer, a critic and models. The catch is that the designer creates fashions for bugs. Our goal is to share our performances during the day on 12/18. Stay tuned for details. We will record performances to share with anyone who can't make it.
In the afternoon, Jim led a workshop on various paper art techniques. We will wrap this up next week and these skills will be used in creating a sculpture (probably a mobile, possibly a stabile).
They took home flyers about the yearbook and the Scholastic Book Fair. I have extra copies if you need one. We will preview the book fair during class on Dec. 4th. Students can make wish lists for birthdays, holidays, etc. and they can let me know which books they think we should add to our class library.
