More Snap Circuits

When we think of art sometimes we think of art as a thing to look at. Many artists spend their time trying to create art to capture more than just one of your senses. In art this week we will be talking about texture and how texture can affect the way we see and feel about things around us.

Students will be introduced to what literacy is and how they will use it throughout their lives. We will read a story, give an examples of ways they can use their literacy skills and work together to create a bucket list!
