Never Eat Soggy Waffles!
Great advice, right?! This was the wisdom one of my 4th graders shared with her class when they were trying to remember the order of the cardinal directions as we were drawing our compass roses.
The kids have done a great job designing and creating these with a compass and ruler. We have started painting them and will finish by mounting them to cut up road maps.
I found this awesome lesson at Artisan des Arts! 🙂
Third graders will be starting to hone their cursive writing technique next week in art class. The kids are always so excited about learning to write cursive. Last year I tried a cursive writing project with them for Dia de Los Muertos. It was pretty difficult so I thought I would try something less so this time.
After some practice with letters and their names, we will be making name bugs. A few of the kids noticed mine the couple of days and are pretty excited about getting started.
Here is mine, step by step and I’ll be sure to share their when complete!
Here are a few of the kids’ in progress:
This is a fun project I came across on Artsonia by Blue Mountain Elementary students. I love the different perspective and that each picture can still be individualized.
I’ve shared pictures of the step by step process so far. We will share more when they are complete!
First graders are getting in on the Dia de Los Muertos fun with their monarch paintings. We drew with sharpies, colored with crayon, and will be painting next week with watercolors!
Instead of a directed drawing, I decided to just show them quickly how I draw a butterfly and then let them go for it.
A couple of the classes have painted their flowers this week and they are so pretty.
