Fish Wish

24 Sep

My son’s portfolio is due to his school this Monday, so I have some catching up to do.  This past Thursday we read, “Fish Wish""” by Bob Barner.  It’s a simple fun book about sea creatures.  The pictures are so colorful.  There are so many things you can do with this simple book.  Together, we created a graphic organizer of all the underwater creatures featured in the book.From there, he decided on three animals that he wanted to sculpt with this non-drying clay.  I’m not sure what I think of it.  It’s definitely harder to work with than play-doh (great for strong hand-writing fingers).  I do like that compared to the $1 colored clay we normally buy from Wal Mart, the color does not get on your hands or other things for that matter.I don’t like the colors much.  This is green.  I was hoping for more of a grass green.They are really pretty when you see it like this.  But that pink in there is actually red.  Oh well.  He enjoyed it.I love that after he made his trumpet fish, he wanted to measure it.  Don’t mind the rusted measuring tape.  It’s one of the perks of living in Hawai’i.These were his final creations.   Now off to organizing his portfolio!
