Anyone have any cute art projects that go with a writing assignment that I can put up on a bulletin board or hang? Would love some ideas.

Scarecrow

I give my class a scarecrow to decorate - they get to take it home and use any materials they have - fabric, puff paint, etc. Then we write an elaborative segment in class that descirbes the scarecrow. Before hanging them in the hall I have them hang the scarecrows on the board and each person takes turns reading their elaborative segment and we see if we can match theirs with the correct scarecrow so they must be very detailed in their writing. Most of the students really get into it and it makes a great display in the hall.

I do the same kind of thing but with a pumpkin! There is a great naked turkey project for Thanksgiving.

In the past I've done a Weak Word Cemetery. Each kid gets a tombstone and they have to write a "weak word" on it. Underneath they have to write synonyms of that word. For example, if their weak word was "said" then their synonyms could be replied, exclaimed, verbalized, etc. I've mounted the worksheets onto black construction paper and hang them in the hall w/ the title Weak Word Cemetry. Ties into Halloween a little.

I would also love the scarecrow, if you don't mind. I have two students who can't do anything related to Halloween, so that would be perfect! wardlow.tara@pburgsd.net

The scarecrow would be a great tool to use when discussing descriptive writing! It's my first year to teach writing in fourth grade. I would love to have a copy of this as well, my email is bfurr @ madison-schools dot com. Thanks in advance!

The positive pumpkin

Clip to ScrapBook #10

Cut out a huge pumpkin from bulletin board paper. Have the students draw names. The student will write something positive about the person they drew. II will then compile a list of what was said and who said it. Great team building activity.

generations of Halloween
Old 09-30-2010, 06:39 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

This is one of my favorite projects for Halloween. Have the children ask a parent and a grandparent what their favortie Halloween costume was when they were little and how old they were when they wore it. Then the next day give the kids three generic "gingerbread man" shapes. They add construction paper, fabric etc. and create themselves and the two family members in their favorite costumes. Above each person they write...My favorite Halloween costume was______. I was_____years old. My father's favorite Halloween costume was ____________. He was ___ years old. My grandmother's favorite Halloween costume was ______. She was ____years old. )Students glue this on a large sheet of orange construction paper. You can have a very interesting class discussion about how costumes have changed, and how they've stayed the same!

q-tip skeleton

We make a skeleton out of q-tips. It also teaches about bones and the joints (two q-tips equals an arm and a leg not one). There is an example picture at this site: http://www.crafts-for-all-seasons.co...-skeleton.html

Aother Scarecrow Idea
Old 10-01-2010, 05:30 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #19

I can't remember where I got the idea, but I once had kids fold pieces of white construction paper in half lengthwise, write their names in cursive, and then cut around their names, leaving a two inch border. When they unfolded the paper, it almost looked like a skeleton. They added the skull, hands and feet ( talked about symmetry), and glued everything onto black paper. It looked wonderful down the hall, and every class walking to lunch would tip their heads to try to read the names.

I'm not sure if those who posted their email addresses wanted the project I posted about, since I had a brain cramp and titled it "Scarecrow", instead of "Skeleton", but here is a picture of the project.
