Cursive Calaveras

Standard
Cursive Calaveras

My third graders are learning to write cursive and I thought this project would be absolutely perfect to go along with their new writing skills. I found this project on The Kessler School’s Artsonia page. This is my example, step by step and I’ll be sharing my students’ as they finish!

*UPDATE*
We are finishing up our Cursive Calaveras and they look phenomenal! We decided to add the colorful border and the monarch butterflies in honor of Dia de Los Muertos.

Beautiful Butterflies!

Standard

My last kinder project for the year coincided perfectly with their learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. They had the nets and caterpillars and were able to watch them make the cocoons (or raccoon as one kinder insisted), and then finally the butterflies! This took only two classes. The first day, we painted our butterfly pieces and then cut out the black part of the butterfly. The second class, we cut out the painted pieces and glued them in like a puzzle. The kids loved them and gushed about how beautiful they were. I hate that it’s the end of the year and I won’t get to hang them up – though I probably would’ve had to pry them out of the kids’ hands as they enjoy taking their artwork home to show it off. 🙂
