Eye crafts

Eye crafts are a new really fun art project! It’s a simple, easy, fun, and is very quick. 

What you’ll need:

  • yarn
  • 2 sticks (Popsicle sticks are more easy to use)

here are the instructions from PBS:

Knot the end of the yarn to the sticks, close to the intersection of the sticks. Wrap the yarn around the stick then follow onto the next stick, wrapping it around and continuing on around the cross until the yarn reaches the end and then tie it off. Continue knotting on weaving threads until the sticks are full.

SLIME

Slime is the newest trend, but parents are rebelling against this ‘slime’ for two reasons. One, it’s messy. Being messy  doesn’t work to slime’s advantage. Tt has stuck to hair, rugs, and clothing and then parents get angry and ban slime from their houses. Big fat reason two, BORAX.  Parents say it’s toxic, but kids disagree, and say slime is fine, and Borax isn’t toxic at all. I don’t know who to side with, but if Borax is a laundry product, it can’t be that bad.

4th and 5th Grade Chorus Concert by Abby S.

It was a lot of work, but we’re almost done! On Thursday, Feb 9 the chorus concert will  take place in the morning for the school and for the parents in the evening. If there is a snow day we will have to change the date as snow is in the forecast.  We’ve been working hard to learn all the songs. We will be singing songs together, and one grade at a time.  We will be singing songs  like “A-zing A-za” and “Old Carion  Crow”. I hope you come to watch!
