We will still be having our school art show, just a little bit differently! My goal is to make a virtual art show with artwork you have sent me from our Google Classroom assignments or with FREE DRAW ART. I am hoping to have ONE piece of artwork for every student in our school. Suggestions for Artwork: -Appropriate for school -Colorful -Takes up full page or majority of page -Use whatever art material you like -Something you are proud of -Something you made from this year either in art or on your own -Clear picture taken of artwork close up Please upload or send me a picture of your favorite artwork that you have created so far either on Google Classroom, through email, or text by May 4th. This gives you two weeks to make something if you don't have something you are proud of already. Remember the majority of the students and their families will see the picture of your artwork! I will then make a virtual gallery and send it to everyone!

The color wheel art challenge is an activity that students can complete for fun. The challenge is to have students create a color wheel out of objects found in their homes. Kindergarten through 2nd grade is challenged to create a color wheel using primary (red, yellow, blue) and secondary (orange, green, purple) colors. Third through 5th grade is challenged to use primary, secondary, and tertiary (red orange, yellow orange, yellow green, blue green, blue violet, and red violet) colors. Red is typically at the top of the color wheel and green is usually at the bottom. You can send me a picture of the complete color wheel through Google Classroom, email, or text. I look forward to seeing all of the amazing color wheels. Click the links below for some sample images.

Some students are having difficulties sending or uploading images of their artwork from your packet assignments. Here are 3 ways you can submit artwork to me: 1. You can upload it through the assignment on the classwork tab (if I have created an assignment for your grade level). 2. You can e-mail a picture to me at tia.nugent@k12.wv.us 3. You or a parent can text me a picture of your artwork . Please e-mail me for my phone number. I am extending the due date for any artwork from your packet until April 3rd. Please make sure you submit a piece of artwork to me either on Google Classroom, through e-mail, or by text message. I know this is new for all of us and wanted to provide you some extra time to learn how to use Google Classroom. Keep your eyes open for a fun activity for art next week!

ALL NJES STUDENTS can access our FREE online Music curriculum by going to www.quavermusic.com.  Once on the site click on "student interactions."  This will bring you to a login where students are to type their homeroom teacher's code.  After students are logged in they can select a variety of Music games and activities for FREE!  Teacher's codes are on the cover page of the Music Packets that were sent home on Friday, March 13th.  If you are unable to find the code they will be posted in the Music google classrooms or you have email me for them.

Email me if you have any questions.

NJES is using "Google Classroom" as the main virtual learning tool.  Google Classroom is a better way to receive grade level as well as Related Arts (Music, Art, Library, & P.E.) assignments, return them once completed, and ask questions.  All students at NJES have a grade level code they are to use to access their Music assignments.  You will be receiving your code for the "Music google classrooms" via email or your homeroom teacher if you haven't already.

Feel free to email me with any questions.

Attached is a link for how to use Google Classroom. I hope this is helpful!  https://nam01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdrive.google.com%2Ffile%2Fd%2F1oq7Om_vc4J0rjKwUDbXufiwWQ7t6nAhO%2Fview&data=02%7C01%7Cssigley%40k12.wv.us%7Ca4a7874d5c314b3527d808d7d0a7a128%7Ce019b04b330c467a8bae09fb17374d6a%7C0%7C0%7C637207290690382016&sdata=%2Fk%2F4C0ru08a3iS8FYQq7jj6k1yzFZ7m6H0NOosCyAAA%3D&reserved=0

Good morning NJES students and families!  I started Google Classrooms for art for each grade. On there I will post anything that I also post on here but this is a great tool because on Google Classrooms students are actually able to write back to ask questions or make comments on the assignments. They are even able to communicate with each other. I already have a few students signed up for my 3-5 classrooms and I am working on trying to figure out the best way to invite K-2. If you are K-2 bare with me but if you are 3-5 you are able to join the classroom already.  Here is how to join:  You can either go to the website for Google Classroom or download the App on a device. You will use your school student email but after the @ symbol you will write @jcswv.org and you will be asked to join the classroom. My e-mail which is tia.nugent@jcswv.org just for Google Classroom purposes. If you are looking to e-mail me personally please use tia.nugent@k12.wv.us at this e-mail I am able to respond back. If you are unsure of your student e-mail account please let me know and I can get you that information.

?It has been brought to my attention that some 3rd graders didn't receive the artwork assignments in their packets. Attached you will find the scale project and space project that should have been sent home in your packet. I know we haven't been able to cover these two elements of art in class yet, so if you have any questions please ask. There is also a vocabulary box on the sheet if you are unsure of the terms. Scale refers to the sizing of objects in your artwork. Think: What if you were as small as a penny or larger than a house? Negative space is the empty space around an object and positive space is the object itself. You should be designing the negative space in this piece of artwork and the object will remain uncolored.

First graders have two Music assignments as well as an option to go to quavermusic.com for some online music fun!

The first assignment is a review of the music symbols they have studied this year.  It is called, "Clap A Rhythm."  On "Clap A Rhythm" students are to practice clapping the notes and rest pictured.  Then they are to fill the empty spaces/measures with their choice of notes and/or rest equaling to 4 beats.  The beat value of each symbol is as follows:  Quarter notes (ta) = 1 beat, Quarter rest = 1 beat, Paired Eighth notes (tee-tee) = 1, and Half Note (ta-ah) = 2 beats.  Once they are finished they will have composed 20 measures of Music!  

The Second assignment is an opportunity for students to have they very own personal instrument at home.  It is called, "Make a Shaker."  Using the household items listed and following the directions first graders can make a homemade shaker.  This will act similar to maraca or egg shaker.  Once the shaker is constructed they can use it to play their 20 measure musical composition on the "Clap A Rhythm" paper.

2nd Graders have two assignments.  Like 1st Grade they will be practicing their music composing skills with the assignment, "Clap a Rhythm."  On "Clap A Rhythm" students are to practice clapping the notes and rest pictured.  Then they are to fill the empty spaces/measures with their choice of notes and/or rest equaling to 4 beats.  The beat value of each symbol is as follows:  Quarter notes (ta) = 1 beat, Quarter rest = 1 beat, Paired Eighth notes (tee-tee) = 1, and Half Note (ta-ah) = 2 beats.  Unlike first graders second grade may also choose to use a set of four sixteenth notes in their measures.  We call 4 sixteenth notes beamed together tee-kah-tee-kah which are equaled to 1 beat.  Once they are finished they will have composed 20 measures of Music!  

The Second assignment is an opportunity for students to have they very own personal instrument at home.  It is called, "Straw Flute."  Using the household items listed and following the directions second graders can make a homemade straw flute or it's real name, a recorder.  This will act similar to a recorder since you blow into a hole, cover holes with your fingers, and hold it pointing towards your feet.  Once the flute/recorder is constructed they can use it to play their 20 measure musical composition on the "Clap A Rhythm" paper.
