As part of the art that the 3rd and 4th graders made with me in Coshocton, each group was asked to write about the body part they had constructed and the materials they had used, kind of like I do with my art. In response, they wrote many wonderful things.
Here’s a great selection of the kinds of things that they thought to include in their reflections. In case you can’t read them well, here’s a translation (with corrected spelling for ease of reading):
The head came from the Salvation Army, so it has a lot of story behind it. The hair we found in a bucket in art class. The flower was right beside the hair so we KNEW it was a perfect match. The hood was made from a very special fabric. It actually has a lot of story behind it too.
Lane’s shirt that Mom won’t let him wear. Emily’s nice, cozy gloves. Brandon’s ring. Colton’s great sewing.
The pink pants is when I first went to the doctor to get my shot. –Tatum. The jeans are what I wore on my first day of 2nd grade.–Arianna. The jeans is when I went to first day of 1st grade.–Tatum. I used the jeans for the pocket. I cut some of the designs.–Shalcey
The pants I brought in was my favorite pants I ever had. Now the pants are going to be a fake person.
