Stuffed animals, Stories, and FUN!

The Haas n' Baker Student Story Time Symposium!
Friday, June 14th from 8 - 9 a.m.

   Please join us for a collaborative event between MC Baker's Art Room and the Haas Classroom showcasing the skills learned in Art using math, patterns and imagination to design stuffed animals/creatures and hand stitching them to bring them to life!
    In the classroom we read The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo as our Read Aloud book. The students then wrote and illustrated stories about the journey of their very own stuffed animal that they created with Ms. Baker. Their enthusiasm was also inspired by Katie Boutin, Ben's sister, who asked if my class would illustrate the children's book she wrote for her Senior Grad Challenge from CVU. They enjoyed doing that so much they wanted to do one themselves. Katie's book will be on display Friday morning as well! (ssshhh...the author may be able to make an appearance!)

    The students have also been learning many different types of Poetry and have written and illustrated "wonder - full" Poetry Books!!! Yes indeed, we have been busy bees!!!

  So much to see and read! Please come browse and admire their efforts and celebrate this wonderful group of children with us!

Congratulations Artists!
Kellogg's Catchy Cards are a big hit!!
Cards were sold at Adam's Farm Market on Saturday and are still available on line.  Great integrated project!  Check out the article in the Williston Observer this week.

Color Wheel Cookies

As a end of year celebration, Mrs. Baker read the book "Mouse Paint" (by Ellen Stoll Walsh).  Students were given primary color frosting (red, yellow, and blue) and they mixed the secondary colors (orange, green, and purple).  They frosted cookies and ate their results!
