One of the questions on my exam was: How do we make patterns?
a-with lines and shapes b-with lines
c-with shapes or d-with crayons
Lots of students make patterns with crayons.............. Silly me!!
My patterned elephant lesson would not only review patterns but also include values of gray.
My kindergarten and 1st graders drew, mixed their color and painted their elephants and with clean up we were done with part one of this lesson.
I managed to do this lesson and paint with my students on Wednesday to Friday before I went on medical leave. So directions for my Monday & Tuesday students were different. I really don't want a sub painting with students when I'm out. They traced an elephant onto gray paper, divided their elephants into 5-7 sections and started to add patterns to their sections. They had the sheet below to inspire their designs. I made several of those collages using an assortment of wallpapers.
Gotta say I'm home exactly one week and I'm going crazy....... Missing my students and my art room......... No ones gets how to teach art and subs don't understand how to follow directions........
BY THE WAY THIS IS MY 100th POST!!!!!!!
