Clay Owls- I did this with Kindergarten and 1st graders! It was very successful! They painted them with metallic acrylic. They fit on plate stands (that I purchased very inexpensively - parents reimbursed me). Everyone was thrilled! (They can get kind of thick - allow them dry for quite some time.)

Kari Wilson's middle school art, writing, and technology lessons all on a YouTube channel....it's like an art teacher's resource heaven!!! Here's a video of Kari introducing the elements of art by making toast with her students and having a discussion with them about how a work of art is like a toaster..."when all the elements are functioning well the out-come is a complete experience like a a lovely, piece of buttered toast."
The Day the Crayons Quit-Absolutely new most favorite book. Teaches letter writing and persuasive text all in one while being absolutely hilarious!
