For the Love of Art

For this project, I read the story Rainbow Fish and we discussed the moral of the story. The first day we created our oceanic background. We used cake tempera in blues, greens, and purples making puddles of color all over the page. Then we sprinkled on a little salt to get a sea salty look. Once dry, we drew in some seaweed.

Plants and Seeds and JACK AND THE BEANSTALK!

Reader's Theatre We had a lot of fun this week doing a Reader's Theatre of Jack and the Beanstalk to go along with our plant unit. I found some puppets for each of the 3 pages of text using these coloring book pages found at HERE at Sparkle Boxes. Then we divide up the parts and have readers use their most expressive voices. This is the way I did it this year. Another way I've done it some years is to have each child bring in an empty cereal box. Then I cut out a square out of one side of…
