Students from Advanced Art Therapy Club created the banner for the Costume Parade and Fall Festival taking place on October 31 from 9:15-10:15 am. Students learned to make 3D “Haunted Houses” from four geometric shapes (square, triangle, diamond, & rectangles). Students also had the opportunity to take their “gods eye” to the next level, learning more advanced weaving patterns and techniques.
This week, students in PS3-Grade 2 are learning to count to 8 in French. They are learning symmetry and math by creating colorful spooky 8 legged spiders. They are learning 4 + 4 = 8 (don’t be late).
Grade 3–5 students are continuing with the Line, Shape, and Color for Hispanic Heritage month. They are learning to weave “Gods Eyes” which is an indigenous Mexican tradition that honors the four cardinal directions of North, South, East and West. The 4 corners represent earth, wind, fire, and water.
At the beginning of the year, students in Spanish class focus on names, numbers, letters, colors and shapes. Students in the upper grades also learn basic grammar. All students are exploring cultural topics in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Ludlow-Taylor is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. Students are learning about countries with Spanish culture and connections in art class. They also are identifying their respective countries in relation to the US with Latin American flag illustrations and Lucia liner wrestling masks. Students were tasked with naming and creating their characters and naming them in Spanish.
Students are also working on traditional indigenous yarn weaving from western Mexico. The Ojo de Dios, or God's eye, is a cultural symbol which signifies the power of seeing and understanding that which is unknown and unknowable. The four points represent the mystery of the elemental processes--earth, fire, air, and water. The craft honors culture, tradition, and art of the indigenous peoples of Latin America.
