More farm fun.

We have finally finished our farm unit. It has been a while since I spent 2 full weeks teaching 1 theme. It feels like we have been looking at pictures of pigs and cows and horses forever but I'd much rather have lots of time than not enough! We had a great week with lots of fun and LOTS of learning. I have a ton of pictures to share so I'll get right to them :) The day after our field trip we made farm circle maps of all the things we saw. (The circle map is from the lovely Shannon Martin…

For the Love of Art: 1st Grade: Spring Chicks. Would be really great in a classroom hatching baby chicks.

1st Grade: Spring Chicks

For this project we talked about how many things artist create come from simple shapes. We also talked about visual texture, and how to use a sponge to get the "fluff" look of a chick. Using sponges and white and yellow tempera (mixed together and watered down), we made circles for the heads. We used triangle sponges for the nose, and the back of a paintbrush for the eye dots, feet, orange hair, and grass. I tried to teach "profile" with the kids- and some of them got it! Pretty cute!

I am not due to give birth for another month but I plan on going back to work right after March break next year (I get one year maternity leave) so there was no point in stretching this out any longer.
