Snowman 3 Ways

Students had to draw the same snowman 3 times, from 3 different perspectives. Was a great lesson on different angles to draw a figure. We discussed frontal view, profile view, back view, ariel view, and what a diagonal is. They used oil pastel to color in. They turned out great!

Adaptive Fish Paintings

We used sponges for the background (1 class). And then rubber fish stamps for the fish prints (2nd class). The students painted the stamps and help rub the paper on top to get the print. Last step was to add a little sparkle by making bubbles:)

Ice Skates


Second graders reviewed what a self portrait is. They drew an oval for the head, traced their hands for the mittens, and drew their hat. They used construction paper crayons for the patterns on the hat and mittens. They turned out really cute! ( I found this lesson on Pinterest, my new favorite web site).
