Medium tightness on the round quilled strip of paper.

painted cores, tape wrapped, or stapled cardstock in ivory or pale yellow

Many already have an excellent start.
one more class and they should be done.

Second Graders Work on Leaf Sculptures

Thursday afternoon the children were checking over their work for loose coils or gaps

Some were already done and got busy doing  mini drawing of a coil leaf and were able to sculpt 4 or 5 extra strips over the drawing.

Apple Slice Sculpture

I found this idea on Pinterest, but the connection just went to a broken link.  Just went by the photo and started with a rolled up cylinder for the center on my example.  For the classes of third grade, I let them chose from cardboard tubes or stapled card stock.

We are collecting sticks and crimping the paper for the apple skins.
