Ornaments for the Governor
The AES Gifted Classes have made ornaments to send to the Governor's Mansion to help decorate the Christmas trees. Governor and Mrs. Bentley will open the historic Alabama Governor's Mansion for Christmas tours on December 3, 10, and 17 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Admission is free. Heather Hannah, Albertville native, works with the Governor and his wife and has asked students in Alabama to show their creativity by sending handmade ornaments to help decorate their trees in the mansion and in the John Blue Hill House.
Gifted Students at AES have created several ornaments in recognition of an upcoming unit based on the art of George Rodrigue, a Louisiana artist, who is famous for his paintings of Blue Dog. Students have painted dog bones BLUE and accented each with BLUE glitter. Students also used metal stamps to hand stamp ornaments to resemble "dog tags" using recyled materials. Dog tags were cut from Diet Coke cans and the words "GATE 2012" were stamped by each student, letter by letter, on each tag. Tags will be hung from the tree by a BLUE cord. After looking at many pieces of art by George Rodrigue, students drew their own interpretation of Blue Dog. Some students drew their Blue Dog in Aggie footbball attire, Blue Dog ready for work in a business suit, or Blue Dog in a variety of different settings. Students will send a sample of Blue Dog ornaments and a few Chihuly ornaments from last year's artist study of Dale Chihuly to the Governor's Mansion to be used for Christmas 2012. Students will also take home their Blue Dog ornaments wrapped in BLUE tissue to be used on their tree at home. The Christmas tree at the Albertville Board of Education office will be decorated by the GATE classes from AES and Evans with the "Blue Dog Christmas" theme complete with BLUE lights and BLUE tinsel! Merry Blue Dog Christmas from GATE students!
We Love AES Art Work
Students and teachers of Albertville Elementary School “LOVE” AES! Each person at AES, including lunchroom workers, custodians, office staff, teachers, aides, and students all took part in an art project during the first week of school. Each person created a unique individual heart from colorful, printed papers. The hearts were put together by homerooms or special area personnel to look like a quilt-type collage. These colorful pieces of art are proudly displayed in the AES Media Room for all to enjoy as they pass through to the library. Please drop by to see the “We LOVE AES!” artwork created this school year!
Gifted Share Fair
On Friday, November 16th, Albertville City Schools hosted a Gifted Teachers' Share Fair at Albertville Elementary School. Twenty eight teachers from all over North and Central Alabama attended this conference. Superintendent Ric Ayer welcomed our guests. Mrs. Joyce Bishop greeted guests as they registered for the day. Principals Mona Sheets, Kristy Robinson, Robert Sims, and Julie Ann McCulley also began the day welcoming teachers. AES student ambassadors met the teachers at the front door and escorted them to the AES Media Room. Morning refreshments were served and the sharing began. Each teacher brought a concept-based unit, lesson plan, or idea to use in the gifted classroom. Topics of these units ranged from cemetery etiquette to personality/learning style units to mysteries to computer programming software to art to stop motion animation and more! Teachers shared a copy of their unit with each person in attendance. At the end of the day, teachers left with a large 3 ring binder full of ideas to try in their classrooms. Albertville City gifted teachers, Mary Shurett and Dianna Adams, were so proud to share a little bit of the Albertville City School System with teachers from other parts of Alabama. It was great day of meaningful professional development designed especially for gifted education teachers.
Young Scientist at Work at AES
AES students are using AMSTI to learn about sound. Students in 4th have been creating, exploring, and experimenting with their sound unit. AMSTI is a great way for students to have a “hands on” approach to learning. The 4th grade Science teachers are Mrs. Crowden, Mrs. Howard, Mrs. Rains, and Mr. Young.
