I usually prefer oil pastels over crayons, but have found a new love for these colorful and wonderful friends!
Today as we watched these videos I was taken back to my first box of 64 crayons with the built in sharpener...can you smell them!?
Bunbun remembers when he first learned how to write his name using a crayon! It was a literary and visual masterpiece!
K-2nd have been learning overlapping, so we drew and overlapped crayons for 2 class periods until they had totally filled their page with overlapping crayons!
Then we made the smiling box! We started with the letters. Students drew the word Crayola very large across the top of the smiley, the drew a "follow the leader" line around the stick letters to make a bubble letter. Then we learned about value and colored each letter from light to dark using these three oil pastels
Then they glued the crayons on the back of a pre cut smile shape
These are some fun videos we watched today to get us excited about CRAYONS!!!
