Cutting out and Drawing Circles - a neat way to practice practice practice but putting it towards a tangible activity - the process is the main goal yet they are involved in the product - what kinds of cool trees, rain/snow, colours, etc will the kids create? - Spring Blossoms. (Idea - Kandinsky Trees).
Could create this for many purposes; the creator did it as a way to document plans. I was thinking of using it for beginning year, getting to know you, establishing class agreements. I love the use of color, symbols, words- what a beautiful artifact for a classroom.
Love this for a bulletin board backdrop. Maybe a picture of each child on the first day of school inside the circles. Or a short piece of writing, cut into a circle. I do have a bit of a tree obsession when it comes to bulletin boards/wall art! And if it's 60's folk art, that's even better.
1st grade project, each student makes one circle to add to the classroom tree. Kadinsky trees with construction paper- great use for all those scraps!
