Clay Fun in Elementary

I was finally able to teach some fun clay lessons with all my students.  There was a whole lot of pinching, rolling, punching, and coiling as each grade level explored and made gorgeous creations out of clay.  I found an interesting way for the younger grades to learn how to use a scoring stick and want to use them. While I was introducing this useful tool I explained that this would be their buddy because the scoring stick is so versatile. It scores, blends, creates texture and does just about anything on the clay. One student named it the ‘ buddy stick!’. So suddenly, everyone wanted to use their buddy sticks.

There was no time for glazing so these will be glazed first thing after we come back from the holidays. Aren’t they so cute?
