Box of Crayons
The kids were so moved by the poem
we decided to make our own box of crayons.
Each student represented the color of their choice
and made their name into their own crayon!
For Seuss month we read,
The Cat in the Hat
We loved the goofy cat so much that we made our own!
First we painted the cat’s face onto a paper plate Seuss style.
Then we added red and white stripes
in order to make his famous hat!
In the Valentine spirit our 1st graders looked at
Robert Indiana’s, “LOVE” sculptures.
We also discussed the difference between a shape and a line.
They had to separate their paper into 4 boxes.
Each box received a love letter along with different shapes.
TACKY THE PENGUIN
by Helen Lester
After reading about the “odd” penguin Tacky students made their own Tacky’s!
loved creating these cute penguins and snowflakes from recycled paper.
Martin Luther King Jr.
After studying Martin Luther King Jr. these 1st graders traced their hands in different shades of skin color.
Then they unified their hands with a rainbow behind.
After tracing their foot and hands these 1st graders created
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!
Here he is!!!
These 1st graders first drew and painted Santa.
Then added glitter!
… and here he is.
These adorable cardinals were made by 1st graders.
First they drew the cardinals with pencil and
outlined with black marker.
Then they colored with oil pastels and
painted the background blue.
Painting the snow was the most fun!
Students splattered white paint to make it look as though it was
snowing on their cardinal.
COFFEE FILTER TURKEYS
We made a great discovery!
If you use water on top of markers the colors will blend together, which worked well when making turkey feathers out of coffee filters!
Then students used paper and googley eyes for these silly turkeys!
