3rd Graders Explore Cheekwood!

Last Friday, Ms. Golen and Ms. Motta ( along with the third grade teachers and some very gracious parents) brought 150 third graders to Nashville's Cheekwood Art & Gardens. Cane Ridge Elementary was selected for a grant for the trip presented to us by Cheekwood thanks to Ms. Golen for applying!!!! Cheekwood paid for our buses, gave us free admission, and all of our students who were on the trip received family passes so they can visit again with their families. We had a blast! Thank you Cheekwood.

Our third grade classes are now half way through their individual circle weaving project. Our classes learned how to properly set up a the loom using a paper plate and colorful yarn. A pattern of pulling the yarn under, over, under, over creates the beautiful radial weaving that is both beautiful to look at and fun to do!

Here is a photo of our friends in Mrs. Jensen's class working on their awesome weavings. 
I am so proud and pleased to announce that Cane Ridge Elementary School has two out of the 70 total chosen finalists for this Metro Nashville Public Schools art contest. Breanna Doss in Mrs. Norton's 3rd grade and Andrea Florence in Mrs. Jones's 4th grade class. These ladies will have their art work on the side of a Red River Recycling truck for the next 6 months and will be recognized by Mayor Karl Dean during a reception this Saturday at LP Field. Way to go girls!
Ms. Golen's Kindergarten through 4th grade classes made a Thankful Tree the day before Thanksgiving break. Each student traced their hand, cut it out and drew a picture of or wrote what they were thankful for. The many hands grew into a full and bright tree of autumn leaves.
Speaking of trees and holiday celebrations... have you see our super cool Cane Ridge Christmas tree?
Big thank you to Home Depot who donated the tree to our school! This year's tree is decorated with decorations created by both Ms. Motta and Ms. Golen's 2nd grade classes. It is only fitting that we chose owls- be sure to stop by our front lobby to take a look at this beautiful sight.
That's all for now...
Ms. Golen :)

Second grade learning about TINTS!

Tints are colors that are mixed with white to create a lighter value of that color! Ms. Morris's class explores mixing tints while being inspired by Kandinsky's circles.
