Last week, my third graders got really into making up disastrous scenarios of things that could happen in the art room if we were not being safe.
Can you even imagine the horror that would ensue if a child stacked their markers?
They were so funny I figured we had to do a project about it. I read “Knuffle Bunny” by Mo Willems. They loved it and immediately noticed his cool way of illustrating over real photos.
For our project, I had 5 different empty art room scenes and the kids chose which one they would draw on. We drew with pencils and Sharpie and colored with color stix. It was so fun!
I taught my first ever Pre-K class today! It was supposed to be our Pre-K ESE class and then the VPK class, but today they were combined because of a program they were doing after. I wasn’t prepared for that, but I could quickly make up more trays. All 24 students got messy and had a great time. I love having all of their teachers in the room to help and I’m excited to do this every Friday :) We are the only school in the county to have Pre-K visit every special area class every week!
Today, we made lots and lots of circles with the primary colors! Look at all of that fantastic exploration!
I love your positivity! I’m completely annoyed that pre k was added to my schedule this year. It starts in two weeks and I feel sick when I think about it.
That weird clip was in my local paper, so I illustrated it….I wish it made sense.
