The first graders have begun a cross-curricular project. While learning about Mexico in the classroom, they are going to be creating pinatas during Open Studio in the art room.

If you don’t know already, Open Studio is a flexible time in my schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays that allows classes to reserve extra art classes for interdisciplinary projects. Already this year, the kindergarten teachers have been using Open Studio time to recreate the garden on a bulletin board near their classrooms.

Today, Mrs. Shin’s class got messy with paper-mache, working in partners for their pinatas. Only a couple of balloons popped while they were working! Here are some photos from the mess:
