Glorious Goldfish

With only 4 days to go 'til our summer break, I thought that our last project could be about SUMMER VACATION! When I found the book above, "Goldfish on Vacation" by Sally Lloyd-Jones, I knew I found a winner! The 4th thru 8th grage classes are kids at heart and really enjoy whimsical projects. They really enjoyed practicing their hand at double loading their brush with paint to create stunning painted papers for the ocean background AND goldfish paper. Middle schoolers are the "big kids" of our school and I always try to make them feel special by allowing them to add elements to their pictures. Take a look and be amazed at these middle school pieces!
