Before moving into our current unit on form with its magic wands and charming puppets, first graders explored texture through rubbings to make a visual texture sea creature collage a la Eric Carle. The following week, they created a delightful mixed media tactile texture habitat for those creatures.

Lafayette 5th graders have ALL been hard at work hand and machine stitching a unique quilt for our annual Lafayette Auction! Using donated fabrics in the spirit of the Great Depression, when scraps and feedsacks were used to create an item of beauty and usefulness, this year's 5th graders have created a diamond pattern of teals, reds, blacks and whites.
Our quilt is on the way to completion!
