I am so thankful to Ottercares for their grant. I was able to build a bigger sculpture center with more materials. (Shelves were purchased through my PTO.)
Most of the materials in my sculpture area are from RAFT. The students love this center! We base projects on a PBL process that I created. Students pick a topic or question, complete research, and reflect on their project. The results have been super cool! All the students love doing research about their topics of choice.
The younger students are learning STEAM through using the Keva and Brackit blocks to build simple ramps and towers.
THANK YOU, OTTERCARES!
TAB classrooms should have visuals posted for students to refer to. Over the past few months, I found that my students were not using the visual aids. I removed all the posters from my room except for the 8 Studio Habits. I just wanted time to rethink visual aids and what would work best for my students.
I knew that I wanted to use technology and Seesaw. After some experimentation, I finally found a solution! I made a Google Slides with the steps.
Think of all the possibilities!
Here is a finished visual aid in my room. It was easy to create. I hung it inside my cabinet near the clay shelf.
