Fall Art

Our first major art project was reading Camille and the Sunflowers about Vincent Van Gogh and then painting our own sunflowers.  Next we got out the watercolors and painted fall.  And finally we read Ten Apples up on Top and put ourselves in the story.  I hope you enjoy these masterpieces.  Thanks to Cole Taber, our 8th grade community service student for arranging these up on the creek bulletin board for all to enjoy.

Fall Field Trip to Dorris Ranch

Here are just a few of the pictures from our fall field trip to Dorris Ranch.  The operative word here was wet!  It rained from the time we got to the ranch until we got back to school.  And what did the weather do?  It stopped raining a few minutes after we got back to school and then a few minutes after that the sun came out.  As one of my lovelies said “Teacher, all of my parts are wet!”  Yes, we were all wet.  Rain and all, we had a great time.  Kids sorted beans, washed clothes, pumped water and then hauled it, swept out the cabin that in 1850 held two adults and six kids, played with toys that kids would have played with in the 1850’s, got to sit inside a Kalapuya plank house and got to sit in a re-creation of a wagon that brought most settlers to the west via the Oregon Trail.  Thank you Sylivia, Stephanie, Kristen, and Isabel for coming with us and helping to chaperone.  Enjoy these photos.
