As the 5th graders put the finishing touches on their "selfie" portraits, I can't help but think getting photographed today for school pictures was silly when our "selfie" portraits look so good! I am truly amazed by the quality of work the 5th graders are producing, and am so proud of all the hard work they put into their portraits. This week and next week they will be finishing up their portraits and adding the filters to their drawing. Before choosing a filter color, students were asked to ponder specific colors and what emotion comes to mind when they see those colors. They then listened to the story "My Blue is Happy," by Jessica Young and chose a color that they believe best suits their personality.
