5th grade fabric texture
5th grade galaxies
after 5th grade mixed their 100 colors they painted galaxies!
1st grade flowers
kids draw flower outline in black crayon, then Using my fool proof method for painting- one day warm colors, next day cool colors (this way no muddy mess) kids paint. Then go back re outline flower in black craypa. Add details in colored craypas. BEAUTIFUL!
Free paint- This was an in between project. I like to split up the warm and cool colors, as I have said before, so this was separated in to two sessions, They weren't consecutive classes so they were surprised when they got their papers back and were like "Oh hey, this is pretty cool" then added their other 3 colors plus white to make tints
6th grade recycled container
I have been saving milk jugs and coffee creamer bottles for 2 years. Basically "dumpster diving" in the teachers lounge and tortureing my husband by never throwing out our Ice tea containers. I was so excited by the prospect of this project but it really didn't work out how I wanted it to. I had some success but I think really the kids just looked at me and were like, "Mrs Love, this is your trash..." which it is, so I have yea I don't know about this project??
Pre K 4 Symmetry
Folded 18X24 paper in half. Kids used squeeze bottles of tempera on one side. Folded paper (This is easy stuff) Then I had then go back into it the following week with crayon. They had to do the same thing on the right that they did o the left so their crayon drawings would also be symmetrical. This was harder for them. This kid did pretty good I think
