Amazing Classroom Supplies!

Just wanted to share a cool story!

My apartment complex has an “Adopt-a-Classroom” program for residents that are teachers. I was accepted into the program and they purchased some amazing materials for our classroom!

They donated books, ball cushions, dry erase dots, dry erase markers, magnifying glasses, and globes. So, to say thank you for these amazing supplies, we used the Artistic Expression Style and our “Creation Station” to create some Thank You notes! They turned out great!

Mrs. Hogenson 🙂

SEM Expression Style Project- September

Parents,

September 28 is Artistic Project Day! If your child chose to do an SEM Project for September (using the artistic expression style), they can bring their project to class tomorrow and share it with the class!

Remember:

  • This is an OPTIONAL project (no grade)
  • This is for fun and exposure!
  • You do not have to do one of the suggested ideas on the project sheet, it can be anything you think of related to the artistic expression style.
  • It should be as child directed as possible! There is no right or wrong! 🙂

Here’s the assignment sheet if you need it again:

Expression Style Project- Sept

Thank you! I can’t wait to hear about all you do!
