Students in Mrs. Kipp's, Mrs. Timmer's and Mrs. Stenger's class created these wacky birds!
Before painting our fun birds, students learned about color and value. We discussed what tints and shades were. A tint is when white is added to a color to make it lighter. A shade is when black is added to a color to make it darker. Students went on the hunt for 3 colors and tints and shades of those colors. I have a ton of paint chip cards from the old Menards store. We rummaged through all these wonderfully colored cards to find what was needed. Students saved their selections in a plastic baggie for future use.

Washington has been my "Home" school for many years now. I enjoy teaching all the different students who make up this diverse school. I have taught a multitude of lessons in this building and have learned just as much from all of the students.
