2nd grade portraits - traced with Sharpie. "The students chose either warm or cool colors and created abstract paintings while I took their photographs one at a time. During our next class we taped transparencies to the black and white photos that I printed for them and the students traced all the details they could find with Sharpies. To complete them we made nametag titles and stapled the tracings to the paintings."
Great idea! "Brain Sprinkles"! from Dr. Jean. It is an old coffee creamer bottle with the label removed. Fill the bottle with about two tablespoons of rice. Put a piece of plastic wrap under the lid and glue the lid. Everyone will get a little sprinkle before our "Circle Time" begins! From the idea genius of "quiet spray"! Check out her blog!
