Here Ye! Here Ye!

Several First Grade classes are creating their royal crowns! We have been talking about Kings and Queens and what we would do if we could be royalty for a day. Just a few of the great answers I got were, eat pizza all day, boss everyone around, and live in a castle. The students drew out their designs after we talked about giving our crown a high center and we also discussed symmetry. They were to cover their crown with patterns and shapes that they would be able to paint inside of. The classes just began painting this week and have been doing a very neat and careful job. These are just the beginning! You won't recognize them after we have made them super gaudy! I love how these have turned out thus far. Check back soon for another update on the Kings and Queens of MCPS.
