Ms. Gappmayer's 3rd grade students read, "Pop's Bridge" in their Journey's book. This is a realistic fiction story that follows two young boys and their fathers who helped build the Golden Gate Bridge. At the end of the week, the students created their own bridges out of marshmallows and toothpicks! They had so much fun creating their own unique designs.
During the first few weeks of art, students worked on sketchbooks, mini masterpieces for the tiny art gallery, and drew small portraits for the schoolwide collaborative mural .
Kindergartners explored a variety of lines and learned that a sculpture is art as they created their paper line sculptures.
”Involvement of students in arts and music programs has been shown to increase academic achievement (Bamford, 2006; Catterall, Chapleau & Iwanaga, 1999 and Wetter, Koerner, Schwaninger, 2009), IQ (Schellenberg, 2006), attendance (Dreezen, Aprill & Deasy, 1999), attitude to attendance (Uptis & Smithrim, 2003), performance on standardized reading and verbal tests (Butzlaff, 2001), verbal skills (Hetland & Winner, 2001), reading for pleasure (Uptis & Smithrim, 2003) and literacy (Bamford, 2006; Hunter, 2005 and Spillane, 2009).
