Kids Count Art Contest

The Michigan League for Public Policy have announced that its Kids Count project is holding a youth art contest. The contest is open to children from preschool through 12th grade and the theme revolves around the question, “What’s it like to be a kid in Michigan?”
The Kids Count in Michigan project, which is part of the national KIDS COUNT project at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, seeks to improve and strengthen our state so that Michigan’s kids can thrive in a world where they are supported. The youth art contest is a chance for kids to be part of the 2019 Kids Count in Michigan Data Book.  The annual data book covers a variety of issues facing children and teens in our state, and though it is not required, artwork can relate to topics such as: friends, family, health, nutrition, childcare, school, career goals, teen issues, home life, culture, emotions, food, sports, money or jobs.

Artwork can be done in crayon, ink, acrylics, oil paint, pastels, watercolor, colored pencils, scratchboard, color marker, chalk, pastels, charcoal, or paper collage. They cannot accept artwork done using plain black pencil or weak colored pencil.

Please visit https://mlpp.org/kids-count-2019-youth-art-contest/ to submit.

This week we started our Geometry unit. We are working on all kinds of shapes, including 2-dimensional shapes (triangles, rectangles, squares, hexagons) and 3-dimensional shapes (cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres) and all their attributes. We will be doing the assessment for this module the week of December 10th.
