School Work / Projects Done by Students During Covid 19 Pandemic

In light of the state of emergency in Ohio, and that the Governor and the Director of the Ohio Department of Health have closed all Ohio schools to students from March 16, 2020, through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, the JALSD has updated its School Closure Delivery of Education Plan. (it is posted below)

On this page we will be posting assignments and projects developed by teachers and done by students to showcase their work and to document the schoolwork being done during this unique period in our school district's history.

As parents have been submitting photos of their child's artwork to me, I've been creating video slideshows to share with the students. Below, I've added a link to the first slideshow featuring art inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau. 

Though I am nervous that I'll soon discover that I accidentally left out a student's artwork or misspelled a name, I really wanted to share what the students have created. As always, seeing their artwork brightens my days and I hope that it does the same for others.

I've attached an Easter egg project I had the kids do - just create something out of colored eggs, and below is an acrostic written.
ACROSTIC: a poem, word puzzle, or other composition in which certain letters in each line form a word or words.

My garden is a flower garden. I would plant a lot of flowers in it. My favorite flowers are roses. I would water them and give them sun. My garden smells so good.
