Room 4 Windfall Project – Mosaic Birdbath

Our Mosaic Birdbath has come alive!  The children in Room 4 have thoroughly enjoyed assisting in the creation of our Windfall project.  The best parts were getting one’s hands dirty and wearing smocks!  The children primed two terra cotta pots and two saucers, and then painted them with beautiful blue paint.  We learned about mortaring, and how to spread mortar on the tiles like making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Mayah’s Dad Doug Williamson is graciously grouting the bird bath and adding the finishing touches – Thank you Doug! 

Come see our class project!  It will be in the classroom during conferences, and then displayed in the Library until the Windfall Auction.  A very big thank you to all the parents who worked with the children and helped make our project such a great success!
