      Kindergarten & 1st grade project: we read the book The Dot, a cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students were able to paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors. This was a nice simple opportunity for students to use paints and learn the expectations for using watercolors.

    From the book THE DOT by Peter Reynolds @FableVision Learning LLC

    Inspired by the melted crayon art, I created this splatter paint project so I could talk to my Kindergarteners about the weather in the spring, "April showers bring May flowers!" They LOOOVED getting messy with the splatter paint. And the kids who don't consider themselves artists loved that they didn't have to touch their brush to their paper! Lots of fun!
