Ready, Set, FUND RAISE!!!

Standard

So it begins, the annual march to make some extra money for my classroom. The actual fundraising will not start until Spring but the making of the artwork starts NOW! 🙂 I’m spreading it out this year in an attempt to not be quite so harried about it. First grade is going first and are working on their owl pictures. These turned out amazing last year and I had so many compliments from parents and staff that I thought it would make a great choice.

Check out some of the works in progress!

Clowning Around With Kindergarten

Standard

My Kindergarteners created these beautiful clowns awhile back and I keep forgetting to post them.  They all did such a great job and they loved creating names and little personalities for them.  We started by tracing a circle (lids) and then progressed with a directed drawing.  I gave them suggestions but also encouraged them to come up with their own ideas.  When we finished drawing, we started coloring and I asked them to choose a different color for each part of their clown, trying to make them as bright and colorful as possible.  We finished them off by coloring the background and adding the fun confetti!
