5 year old and 7 year old students decorating their clock faces before construction.
Today's ambitious project was making freestanding clay clocks. I created the design template for the overall project and printed standard clock faces from the computer. Before class, I threw the slabs and cut the shapes, as I knew this project would take a lot of time. They did a really nice job on this. Their favorite part, always, is drawing on and embellishing the clay surface.

This is the sweetest picture in the world to me. It was taken a few weeks ago and I was busy running around cleaning or something, and these two got their own clay, positioned themselves side by side, and threw some pottery. I am not kidding.
