Rainbow Fish Lesson and Tricking Kids into Sharing!

Yesterday I read The Rainbow Fish to kindergarten and made these collage fish. Students used templates and cut them out. We drew the lines of the face and scales together with black crayons and markers. Then I gave them crayons and oil pastels to color and decorate. Then I passed out two tiny peices of sparkly paper and told them to share. The book is about how the fish is the most beautiful but doesn't want to give his scales away and loses his friends. He finds it is better to share and…

I first saw this cool art at the Lone Tree Community Schools site on Artsonia and knew we had to give it a try. (See their artwork here.) Our first graders began by viewing Fish Eyes by Lois Ehlert and discussing…

where OUR wild things are!

This post is looooooong overdue, as my third graders made these super-cute (ferocious?!) Wild Things based off the book "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. They first began creating their wild thing using crayon and watercolor...this took an entire day to complete. On day 2 they created these LARGE backgrounds using fluorescent temperas on 18x24 sheets of paper. We wanted our wild things to look like they were dancing, recreating the "wild rumpus" that takes place in the book. I…
