We will be studying Calder this week. He is famous for his wire and paper sculptures. The youngest classes will be using pipe cleaners to make their own sculptures and then the older classes (3rd-6th) will me using wire to create sculptures. If the older kids would like to bring pliers with them to help them bend the wires, that would be fine as long as they keep them in their backpacks until needed (I will have a couple pairs with me, but not enough for each child).
Looking forward to a great week!
