Nope. Just four. Man, bulletin boards take forever and mine aren’t even elaborate!
This one has some precious kinder snowmen on it with a few snowman ice cream cones as well. This board is in my classroom which is why it’s so tiny.
This board is showcasing some awesome one point perspective drawings by 5th grade. I was so impressed with some of their themes and their execution of said theme.
This board is another snowman board and this one is in the entry of our school – or as our database manager once called it, the loading dock. Haha!
And one more board of scoops…
These are the cutest snowmen! I found them over at Exploring Art (Abby Schukei) and the kids are loving them. It has been a really fun way to learn about creating form by using value.
Here is mine (which I did in paint but then decided that I liked the idea of using oil pastels better.)
This is an accessories-free snowman so they can really focus on just the shading and form.
Some student examples!
First graders have been working on their painting skills by learning to use value to show form. We also integrated their lesson of labeling things in a scientific diagram by learning about and labeling the parts on an acorn. They are really turning out well.
Here’s our first entry into our fifth graders art journal. We created an Infographic to showcase our knowledge of the art elements. I found this at artroom104.blogspot.com through Pinterest.
5th graders are working on nets and forms in math class so I thought it the perfect opportunity for me to do a project I came across at Use Your Coloured Pencils. When I told them we would be working with nets and cubes they were like, nooooooooo! But I explained to them that I am an art teacher and we can make a “boring” thing SO MUCH FUN! Then I showed them the examples from UYCP and they were like, Whoooooooaaaa! That’s AWESOME!!! So, here we are, one day into the process and they are rockin’ it! I can’t wait to see them finished!
One more Halloween post before I put the decorations away!
These are some cute, simple, one day lesson Frankensteins for the little ones that also teaches them about forms.
We reviewed our flat shapes and then talked about 3D shapes called forms and where you can see them in everyday life. I briefly discussed a kid-friendly version of Frankenstein’s Monster and then we made our cylinders.
First we cut the zigzag line across the black strip of paper and then glued it to the green. Then we added the face and all the Frankenstein-ish details. Finally, we glued the ends of the paper to make our form and I ha to re-enforce some of them with the stapler. It was a fun project to do and they just loved it.
