Diana and I are happy to announce that we will be mentoring 3 fifth grade students from Northgate Elementary school this spring! We will not only assist these students as mentors but we are also committed to helping them financially make it to Washington DC this May 31, 2014! While in DC they will have the opportunity to tour the entire city where they will see monuments and learn the history of our nation. It is our task in the next 2 months to raise $600 in total and we need your support!
We handed students a white slice of paper and told them the only thing required to go on the paper was their name. The paper would go on their PhotoVoice collages but this was an opportunity for them to be creative and have a canvas.
We broke out a color chart and quickly went over color basic’s letting them know the colors we had and what colors needed to be mixed in order to create new ones. Each student chose 2 colors and were given white as a 3rd. A lot of beautiful artwork was created and many students shined! On one hand I was sad because the students were so artistic that it’s a shame they didn’t have more time to show their talents, however; I am happy to be a part of the solution.
Big THANK YOU to all of my classroom support from Diana, Jessica, Christina and the other Dom.
PhotoVoice Eagles With Cameras: “Project on Identity” Who Are We? Session Four
We started off the Wednesday, December 11th session by breaking into groups and discussing what idenitity was and why it was so important to understand it.
Students continued to write about their personal identities.
Diana presented her PhotoVoice collage and spoke about the importance of her family, her career and health as it pertained to who she was.
We’d later go over the scavenger hunt pictures and allow students to speak about the pictures they took.
My favorite part of this session was at then end when Mr. Stowell would connect this project and the importance of knowing your personal identity with the next step the students would be taking in life, middle school. We spoke about the peer pressure and cool factors that most middle school students face, and how it was important that all of them knew who they were as individuals.
With only one more session left I am more than happy with the way this project is panning out.
