March Comes In Like A Lion.....

The 1st grade students  talked ablaut the saying " March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb" We then created these lions. It was a two class session process. The first class session we did a directed drawing in pencil, and then I showed the students how to work from lightest paint color to darkest. The following week, when they were dry, they traced around the contours, with a black marker.

Happy Birthday Dr.Suess

March is Dr. Seuss's birthday, so I had the 2nd graders recreate their own fish in the style of Dr. Seuss's from the story "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish" We completed this project in two class sessions. The first one, we sketched and painted the fish and then in the second period we traced the with black marker, animated them with lines, cut them out and glued them down.
