How Outschool Works

Students will be introduced to how both math and art play an important role in the worlds of architects, engineers, artists, and fashion designers. They will be shown how each of these jobs use a combination of mathematical concepts and artistic creativity! Students will use vocabulary and understanding of geometric principles to complete creative projects over four weeks. They will draw, cut, color and design artistic pieces using mathematical tools like rulers and geometric...
Students will have a better understanding of geometric shapes and their attributes. They will learn the benefits of taking time to draw lines with precision and care. Students will gain a sense of pride and accomplishment in their completed math inspired artwork.
I have over 20 years of experience teaching grades 3 through 8. I hold a bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University, where I studied Elementary Education. In addition, I have a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My classroom environment fosters imagination, growth, and experimentation. Students feel safe exploring the learning process, and proud of their accomplishments. My passion for teaching many subject areas, but particularly math, reading, writing, arts, and SEL is quite evident as I often believe in weaving the disciplines together in a cross-curricular approach. I have attended many reading and writing conferences over the years to keep up on the most current literacy practices. In my free time I enjoy reading, journaling, blogging, and writing poetry. Sharing this passion with students is a tremendous joy!

Though there is no homework, students may want to collect the repurposed paper strips for the final project between weeks 3 and 4.
Ruler, scissors, color pencils or markers, a piece of black construction paper (if you don't have any and regular piece of paper will be okay), drawing or sketch paper, geometric shapes (though I will be emailing them to you so if you don't have them you can print them to trace as well).
Parents will receive feedback following each class.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance may be needed when using craft supplies including but not limited to scissors.
Happy Kids! - with Mrs. Lageveen (M.A. Ed)
