The Bird Art Show

This is the time of year... in classrooms all across the land... when projects are wrapping up. My early childhood group is preparing for their Advent Spiral celebration on Thursday evening and my elementary group is preparing for their Class Play on the Friday afternoon before Winter Break.

We took a hiatus from Science Club in December so that we could put all of our creative energy into playwriting and production.  The Science Club group had their big event on the Friday before we left for Autumn Break. Here are the pictures from their fabulous Bird Art Show:
