I really enjoy working with clay, but it is so much work when you do 4th and 5th grade with 7 classes apiece. Plus as you can tell by the pictures the students glazed them and put glass inside to melt. This was a lot of running the kiln. But these pictures of the last batch to come out are what makes all the hard work worth it! They are really awesome! I am working on some simpler lessons and trying to get students to write critiques. It is honestly an attempt to calm the masses before Spring Break. They are getting a little rowdy and this has been a good way to calm them down and mellow them out. I am working on lighthouse drawings with the fourth grade and I hope to post pictures of their completed work soon. If I can just get my kids to s-l-o-w d-o-w-n and draw what they see I will have accomplished something great!
