"Ugly" Holiday Sweaters
National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is celebrated on the third Friday of December each year. On 12/9 MES staff celebrated by wearing our own sweaters. First grade provided some inspiration for us all, by creating their own designs. Here is a sample of just some of their designs. Enjoy!
Celebrating Dot Day
First grade celebrated International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage and collaboration, inspired by Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot.
After Reading the book, we made our own marks, by bringing the physical world and the digital world together. We expressed our creativity through the simple act of coloring in a dot and then we transformed these dots into 3D using augmented reality.
