Grade 3 Garlands

The Grade 3s have been studying garlands like the one Ophelia had in Hamlet. They painted themselves or somebody they knew and today they hot-glued their flowers on to make a garland.

So here's the beginning

Now closer to the middle

Now it's time to finish it up!

And this is the photographer for this blog post!

There is a willow grows aslant a brook,
That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream;
There with fantastic garlands did she come 
Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples
That liberal shepherds give a grosser name, 
But our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them:
There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds 
Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke; 
When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook.

Queen Gurtrude, Hamlet, Act IV, Scene VII
