1st grade pinch pot mugs

The first graders learned a lot about clay and created some beautiful pinch pot mugs.  They created a pinch pot, added texture and then added a handle (or two, or three...) and some even added a lid!  The glazed was a huge success (I logistically did it differently this year).  It's very interesting to see how students glaze when give the option of 8 colors.  Some go for it all - adding lines, dots, and different colors for each small section.  Some are more planned and only choose a few colors.  And, there are still some who choose only one color but methodically glaze that pot to perfection!  First graders, you make me so happy!

 a top!
