Last night, my class had the opportunity to meet me at Hot Pots, a paint your own pottery studio. This activity was funded through DonorsChoose.org. Families were invited to join me for an evening of fun and creativity.
|We painted these cuties!|
Each student had the opportunity to paint one of the little guys above. We finished a unit on penguins about 6 weeks ago, and the kids were excited to share the penguin facts they know with the staff at Hot Pots. They did not paint their penguins to look like real penguins! These were super cute, and the kids loved them because they come with a tealight, so they are a little night light. The penguins had to stay so they can be glazed and fired, but they'll be ready to be picked up in about a week.
It was great to see the kids chat with each other and have fun outside of school. Their parents also had the opportunity to talk. Fresh popped popcorn was provided by the studio, and I brought juice boxes for students.
It was a great night!
