In early December, Mrs. Yamaoka's ceramics class had the opportunity to work with grade ones from Lloyd George Elementary. In part with the holiday season, the kids were focusing on a "star" theme, so we decided to make ceramic star tiles.
Each student was paired with a grade one and given a square of clay. The children were given an array of textures, tools, and cut-outs to make their projects unique. Under the guidance of Mrs. Yamaoka's students, each grade one created a one of a kind tile. During their second visit, the grade ones learned about glazing and did a fantastic job adding colour to their creations.
The collaboration was a huge success; everyone had fun and it helped everyone to get into the holiday spirit.
Great job grade ones!
