Yes, I realize I am posting this in May, but I am realizing I haven’t posted anything on this blog for Kinder for almost the entire year, so I am playing catch-up.
Kindergarten keeps me busy. They work super fast and I see them twice a week, so we are averaging a project a week. This may be why I don’t post, because it is so hard to keep up. I am going to consolidate and enter lessons for an entire season.
First up, I got this idea from Art with Mr. E. This guy saved me when I first starting teaching art and had to do something for middle school. Had no idea what to do and Mr. E had these great tubes he created with his middle school students. I’ve been a fan of his ever since. I found this lesson online and traced it back to him:
The only thing I added was a spider living on the web. This was a fun way to do something Halloween like, focus in on line design and patterns, cutting, folding paper, and gluing. It is a win and a keeper.
I combined them on my bulletin board with my first grade bats for a little Halloween display.
Next up, fall trees and leaves. This is good for learning how to paint, tear paper, glue, and use a variety of colors in our work.
Artwork before leaves.
As you can see, there is a variety of levels here.
