: Jack Littlejohn
Grade: 4
Teacher: Renee Popek
School: Miller Elementary School

Students used construction paper to create a border around the edge of the paper. The border brought out everyone’s math skills as the students had to determine what shapes would fit and how they could balance the design. Once the border was finished each student had to incorporate part of the border design into the center of the picture. Students were not aware that this was going to be required as they created border. 

Jack is very focused and carefully plans out all of his art work. He treats each new lesson as a problem to be solved and builds up his designs layer by layer, and step by step.
