The girls left cookies for Santa, but Shrimp and BunBun left carrots and seeds. Of course he ate them and left lots of treats! Bunbun really liked the gingerbread man!
Happy Birthday, BunBun!!
My 4 and 6 year old created artwork at home everyday! Here are a few of my favorites!
My daughter created this paper plate version of Shrimp and thought it would be a great idea for a class project!! Thus was born the idea of winter Shrimps and friends! Students will be creating their own bird complete with a winter hat made from tissue paper prints!!
Here's the steps! Just draw with marker, paint marker with water, make the tissue prints, then use a template to make the hats and yarn for pompoms
My second graders are starting their family portrait paintings. I LOVE this project! I am trying to teach them to draw big and overlap. Usually the family picture looks like tiny people all lined up. I wanted them to group the people how they would look in a real family portrait. There would be small people in front and tall in the back. We have just begun drawing them out on watercolor paper and I am very pleased with how they are turning out! LOTS of overlapping!
Third graders are working on all kinds of parrot related artwork. Mrs. Taylor's class is creating GIANT alligator paintings with parrots on their backs!
Now last but not least, here are some of our finished Dia De Los Muertos Sculptures! This was a very fun project. The easiest way to do it is to paint the animals with acrylic paint NOT spray paint! Then use white acrylic for the bones giving each student a print out of their animal's skeleton from google image. Then use neon paint and sharpies to decorate. And of course add some bling!!
