Fun & Successful Kids
Greg chose a mature tree for the focus of this layout. Mature trees are a sign of strength, growth, shelter and community with deep roots. Two intertwined trees represent the school and community The negative space between the branches create windows into the students lives - all images the kids thought were important. The leaves are a product of the trees and represent the students. A tree grows the leaves only to let them go one day as does the school and community raise the students.
Greg worked with the 1st & 2nd graders to brainstorm on things they felt were important about their school and community. They focused on the positive things in their lives that will end of making them successful and enjoy school. The entire school voted for their favorite layout. The project was finished off with the 1st & 2nd graders each painting a leaf.
Below are the concepts Greg developed based on student ideation sessions. With each layout is a brief description of the thought behind them.
