Something’s Fishy About This…

Something’s Fishy About This…

I have kind of (really) gotten on a fish kick with some of my classes. My Kinders, 2nd, and 3rd graders have all been working on fish projects. With K and 2, we talked about Henri Matisse and his beautiful fishbowl paintings. And with 3rd Grade, we looked at pictures of koi fish and discussed the story of the koi in the waterfall and how they are symbols for strength and perseverance. I love how fantastic they all are turning out. 

Kindergarten (we read Henri’s Scissors with this!)

Made it! Rules and procedures: taught. 600 fish: created. First week: done.


Glitter glue, watercolor, foam shapes, crayons, color sticks, sequins, and gems. Oh yeah, and rules and procedures. Week one was a success! 

Thank goodness for a long Labor Day weekend to recover. Next week will include some fun elements of art projects!

Check out some of the awesome koi fish by my fifth graders! We are looking at Asian art in all grades right now. After discussing some of the stories about koi fish and looking at lots of pictures of real and drawn koi, they started sketching their own. Next week, we will paint them with watercolor. I’m super impressed with how well they are doing so far.
