Elementary Art


I am Smyth Bouchard, this is my third year working at Penacook and Boscawen Elementary schools,  I love it!

Please take a few moments to visit this website where I will be showcasing a variety of the projects we work on. 

I am also building a list of articles and activities you may do at home to encourage your students' development! 

Thank you.

My Schedule:

Boscawen Elementary School

The best way to reach me is through email.


How do we assess your students?

All of our lessons and activities are designed to support and fulfill the National Core Arts Standards. You can view the standards at https://nationalartsstandards.org/

We have also created a list of "I can" statements and expectations per grade level that can be viewed here: Elementary Arts Competencies and I Can Statements

This document breaks down the Competencies you will see on your student's report card. Report Card Descriptors

Why is Art so Important?

Articles and Activities to use at home 

Looking to help out our schools?

* We are often in need of tissues in our classroom. If you could send in a box to share, that would be Wonderful!

We are also always looking for:
Pipe cleaners

HELP US EARN CASH! and save our planet at the same time!! 

* Our schools participate in a recycling program for used markers as well as one for used glue sticks and glue bottles. 
This program is not specific to any brand of glue or marker; Crayola, Elmer's, school specialty etc.. all are welcome!

We will be collecting all bottles marked with a #1 or #2 recycling symbol.
Glue sticks are not always marked with a recycle symbol, but we will be collecting them all. 

PLEASE Wash out any glue bottles or sticks as best you can. Not only is it required by the program, but it will prevent everything from getting stuck together as well.

Need more incentive: Elmers will donate 2 cents back to our art room for every glue bottle or stick we recycle!

At both Penacook and Boscawen elementary schools, we will be celebrating the message of the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds throughout this year. 

Messages of
           taking a chance.
              believing in yourself
                   always trying to improve yourself, 
         are great goals to live by. 

Below are a few images of the displays we have been working on.
