Week of November 6th
For the month of November we will be working with shapes and practicing our cutting and gluing skills! Our first project, creating a circle collage, utilized both of these skills as well as stamping circles with paints! The students practiced cutting circles and gluing them, then stamping circles at the end to create a collage.
Week of November 13th
We read the book Little Owl’s Night by Divya Srinivasan and worked with shapes to create owls of our own! The students tore squares of brown paper to create the owls body and wings. They cut circles for the eyes and glued rectangles for the legs. Each owl turned out so different!
Week of November 27th
Our last project of the month began with the story The Mitten by Jan Brett, a winter classic! The students began our mitten project by using q-tips to stamp circles of snow onto our sky background. Then they experimented with chalk pastels to create a colorful, blended mitten. After cutting out their mittens they decorated them with construction shapes, stickers and pom poms. We glued our mittens to our snowy blue sky background, just like Nicky’s mitten flying through the sky in the story!
