We jumped right into writing this year with an ear-piercing scream!  I often combine writing lessons with art lessons - what a pair! 

We all agree that the first day of school is an explosion of fun, energy, nerves, and excitement.  Our first writing assignment captured our feelings in an essay titled, "Scream."  

After writing our essay, we took a look at Edvard Munch's art titled, "The Scream" to see how expression can be created with lines and color. 

We worked on drawing a screaming face of correct proportions. We then had fun adding the hair color using watercolors and a straw to blow crazy hair.

 The kids had a blast with this project!

 Our hallway screams with excitement!

  1. Most loan seekers have to borrow money in order to purchase their home or finance their business. Few have enough money sitting in the bank, or in other easily saleable assets to obtain a loan from the bank as collateral. (Even those few who do have enough money or assets usually find it financially difficult to borrow money from the bank) But Mr Pedro and his loan company offer loans with assets as collateral and they offer 2% rate in return between loan amount of $5000- $5,000,000.00 as long as you are honest to make a return.
    Mr Pedro and his loan company grant Home loan,business loan,personal loan,Car loan at the low rate of 2% you can email for more information.
