I found this on Pinterest and thought it was the cutest idea for Father’s Day.
These are pictures of my example but I’ll be posting pictures of the kids’ soon!
To celebrate Earth Day with my first graders, we talked about the saying, “The Earth without Art is just Eh”. They loved it and thought it was hilarious saying, “Eh.” Silly kids. 🙂
So then we discussed some Earth Day facts and pretended to be the hippies at the original Earth Day. Then we got down to business and started painting on our newspaper. We drew a big circle and then used a crayon to write the quote around it. Then we painted our earth and if they finished that in time, they were allowed to paint the background with any colors they wanted.
They turned out colorful and great and they had a blast. Perfect. 🙂
First graders started on a super cute project I found on Pinterest: Mother’s Day Adjective Ice Cream Cones! I love this and think it could be altered for many different themes or holidays/celebrations.
For the first class, we looked at a finished example and discussed adjectives. Then we made our ice cream cones. I used a 6″x9″ brown piece for the cone and a pink piece of the same size for the ice cream. Then we finished for the day by making the cherry on top. We added “Mom” to the cherry and spent the last few minutes of class suggesting some great adjectives for our moms.
