I tried something new with second grade this year when we talked about Van Gogh and Starry Night. Instead of adding the little town, we added some pumpkins. We also discussed overlapping and space while drawing our pumpkins.
My daughter’s Kindergarten teacher shared this site with her students and when A shared it with me, I loved it! She’s been asking to carve our pumpkin all week and I told her it’s just not time yet. With this site, she can “carve” a hundred pumpkins if she likes and I don’t have to clean up the nastiness of pumpkin goo! This would be a fun thing to do as a center on an Activboard – using shapes, symmetry, lines, etc!
