Good afternoon kinder, first and second grade friends!!
In a few days you will all be moving on to the next grade level, so congratulations!!!! I had thought I would send you a video, since I will not be available to wave to you on Thursday, but unfortunately I am unable to do that as well.
It’s okay though because I can still write you a message to tell you how impressed I am with the work you did creating some cool stuff at home. You did a wonderful job!!
To celebrate your hard work, I have put together a photo gallery under each tab to show off the wonderful art you made over the past 12 weeks. This gallery does not have everything that was turned in, but it shows a good sample of what was done. So, take a moment to appreciate and celebrate all of the artistic work you and your classmates have done. I hope you enjoy it!
I hope that we will be able to meet in the Haigh Art Studio again to: read stories, sculpt, draw, paint, sing and dance. Until then, enjoy a fun and play filled summer with your family.
Our school district would like your feedback on the upcoming school year. When possible, please complete the survey below. This will provide our district office with background information that will be helpful when planning for next year. Thank you for your help and time 🙂
Just a reminder, Monday is Memorial Day and we have the day off school. Therefore, I will not be posting anything for kindergarten or first grade. I will try to post something for the week on Wednesday, which is the regular posting day for second grade.
Have a relaxing time off, hopefully the weather will allow us to spend some quality time outdoors.
I am reaching out to share how K-2 students will be graded for art on their final report card this year.
Over the 12 weeks of remote learning students will have the opportunity to earn a total of 60 points. Following the district’s Continuity of Learning Plan grading scale, the point values correlate as follows:
Meeting (regularly submitted work) = 60-41
Progressing (Submitted most assignments) = 40-21
Limited Participation (little or no participation due to circumstances shared with teacher) = 0-20
During this time of remote learning, I have been providing art activities and posting some submitted artwork here on my blog. Beginning April 20, I will be providing art instruction, grading submitted art, and documenting student participation. New artwork, as well as work previously submitted, will be used to complete 4th quarter report cards.
Please be sure to submit all photographs of artwork to me via email email@example.com make sure you have your child’s name AND classroom teacher’s name in the subject line or text body. Feel free to combine two weeks worth of art photos in one email.
Each assignment will have a total point value of 5, the highest point value that can be achieved for 4th quarter will be 60. I will provide more information on grading later.
Below, you will find the district’s guidelines, in regards to time allotment for art. Please know that I am always available via email and will respond within 24 hours, but usually much sooner during weekdays. I am working regularly scheduled hours 8:30-12:00 and 1:00-3:30 M-F. If for some reason I have not responded within 24 hours to any questions, please reach out again.
