Raffle Item – Ms. Prinzing’s class

The kids in Room 205 explored Onomatopoeias.  Onomatopoeia is a word that phonetically imitates or suggests the source of the sound that it describes; think “zap” “bang” or “smash.”  Each child chose a word and collaged them into their own personal box using bright primary colors.  Each box was then secured together to create the appearance of a comic sketch.  This piece could be yours with the purchase of a lucky raffle ticket!
