This week, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders began to explore art with Station Rotations! Each student had an opportunity to travel through four stations: (1) I SPY, (2) trilingual puzzles with colors and shapes, (3) illustration boards, and (4) my station with small group instruction.
During my stations, students learned about book bindings and the parts of our sketchbooks while adding finishing details of colors and sharpie marker. We are off to a great start and look forward to another exciting week in art!!!
After-school art is in full swing! This Monday kids met with Ms. Neufeld and I decided to hang around to make art, too! We were given directions verbal to draw different objects, letters, lines, and shapes. The objective was to see how everyone interprets words and creates differently!
This is a picture of Miller's and my art for the following directions: 1) draw the letter G; 2) add a zig-zag line; 3) draw a stick figure; 4) draw a straight line with dots above it; 5) draw a tic-tac-toe board; 6) draw a house; 7) draw a caterpillar, and 8) draw a BIG rainbow!
Fun afternoon creating with kids :) If you are still interested in after-school programs, check out Kiddos in the front office of the Hills.
The pre-k kids are learning the basics of lines with cool Crayola construction paper crayons.
Students started with pencil drawings and learned a song about the six different lines: vertical, horizontal, diagonal, curvy, zig-zag, and dash! These awesome drawings will be used for the cover of their mini-sketchbooks!
A quick 10-minute drawing is the perfect assessment of my new students' skills. I encourage them to draw anything! From a cartoon character to their favorite animal, I just want to see their pencil come alive on a brightly colored Post-it note! Can't wait to see these hung all together as a collective picture!
