What I am doing

Clip to ScrapBook #4

I teach 3rd grade.

In the January issue of the Instructor magazine was an Art lesson in the style of Keith Haring. I copied the figure that it included. The students had to cut it out then put the posable figure together with paper fasteners. Then they had to trace it on 5 different colors of construction paper and pose it in 5 different positions. Then they cut each out and glued them on a long white piece of const. paper. Allow an hour to do it for 3rd graders but they loved it. The projects turned out great and the kids learned about an artist too.

We are going to make tissue paper Monets next week. I drew 4 different water lily pics and ran them on construction paper. The kids are going to use glue, water, and torn tissue paper to fill in the pictures. It will be messy but I think they will enjoy blending the colors together.

Paper plate snowmen that I found on Enchantedlearning.com if we ever see snow again will be coming.
