Art Gallery 101

Hello, everyone! In our class, last week, we created our own artwork using many different art forms, including painting, drawing and sculpting! Check out some of the results!

Some students worked with painting and sculpting...

Others decided to draw...

And, thus, we could explore the art's classroom together!

Drawing and sculpting like professional artists!

Some students brought material from home to improve their creations!

P.S: What is the connection between your artwork and the sculptures and paintings we saw earlier this year at CCBB?

Do you know the Braille Alphabet?

Hello, everyone! Today in our class we put ourselves in a blind person's shoes for a moment. The teacher brought us a blindfold so we could challenge each other!

We guided each other through the hallway...

Bumped into some of the lockers...

Walked carefully...

But, eventually, all of us found the drinking fountain! 

Check the following link about Louis Braille if you want to know more about him:<

Food for thought!

Hello, everyone! It is music time!
Watch the videos below and think about how they can be related. Don't forget to post a comment of what you thought!

The first video is from the movie "The Greatest Showman", which shows the story of a Circus and its peculiar members. What do you think is the message of this song?

The second song is from singer Kelly Clarkson, winner of the American Idol. Listen to the song and, then, google the lyrics. What do you think is the message of this song?

Remember to write the words you know in each song and bring them to class to share with your friends.

World Environment Day

Hello, everyone!
Today we worked at Teresiano's garden, with Martha and Letícia, to celebrate the World Environment Day! Our job was to make Seed Bombs! Sneak a peek!

First, Letícia explained how to make the Seed Bombs...

We made Seed Bombs in all sizes - big and small! 

After she explained, we had fun putting our hands in the mud!
But what we really loved was to throw our Seed Bombs near Queen's River!
Seed Bombs enrich the soil and help other plants to grow! If you have any chance, make one at home and help the environment around your house!

We cooked Moqueca Capixaba!

Hello, everyone!
Today we cooked a traditional brazilian dish called Moqueca Capixaba. Its recipe comes from Espírito Santo.

First, we pushed out the seeds from our tomatoes!
Then, we cut bananas!

Tiago helped stirring the Moqueca...

Ready to serve!
Finally, we ate the Moqueca! Some loved it! Others hated it!

Check out the video we saw in class from the Youtube channel, Cuca Brazuca, with the recipe for another type of Moqueca (from Bahia):

Outside our classroom, we found a tree!

Hello, everyone!
In our class today, we explored the parts of the plant while observing a tree found at school!

Alain was the first to identify the stem of the flower.

When asked, everyone pointed where was the stem of the flower.

After observing the tree, the students registered on their books the names of the parts of the plant.

What is under the tablecloth?

Hello, everyone!
In our classroom, we learned about kitchenware vocabulary. Under Minnie Mouse's tablecloth we found a various pans, a spatula, a wooden spoon, among other things!

Students tried to guess what was under the tablecloth...

Finally, we started revealing kitchenware and learning about their names in English.
