Previous Weeks Activities

Today for STEAM Tuesday with Ms. Tiffany, our challenge is to create a raft out of recycled materials that can carry your egg (object) across the water and keep it dry. Before you start the video, gather your materials: egg (or another small object to keep dry) and recyclables. Ms. Tiff used a milk carton, Arby's sandwich box, butter package, Duct tape, toilet paper roll, cupcake paper, paper, one chopstick, scissors (with adult supervision), and art supplies such as paint pens, acrylic paint, etc. 

Hey Parents & Kids! Go here to hear a message update from Mr. Jermaine

At Home with the Art Lady

Hey Kids! This week we will learn how to draw a Bee with Ms. Cammie.

First, get out your Pencil, a Pen or crayons/markers and a piece of blank paper

Then Go to this website to follow her tutorial

Then watch her video to learn more about bees and how to draw one

This week, Ms. Danni starts reading The Last Kids on Earth by Max Brallier about a once ordinary 13-year-old orphan, named Jack, who is now facing life after A Monster Apocalypse. Thanks to @Scholastic for allowing us to share this book with our Dowd Family. Note: this book read aloud is best for our 3rd grade and up students as some parts maybe a little scary for our younger Dowd students and siblings.

The Homeless Families Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization.
