My first grades created these shape abstracts back in September. This lesson focused on shape review, proper painting technique/procedures and following directions.
I instructed them on which shape to draw and how many. Three circles, three triangles and two squares. They placed them randomly on their paper, positioning them how ever they wished.
The kids traced their pencil lines in black oil pastel and painted them in with tempera cakes. Everyone did a great job!
Here's hoping that Hurricane Sandy does not hit New Jersey in the way they are predicting! Not looking forward to days of no electric again this year for Halloween! Lost power for four days this time last year in a freak blizzard that took down several the trees in the area! I was supposed to be attending a workshop on STEM to STEAM on Mon and Tues but it has been postponed due to the impending weather. Of course I got the notification right after I finished writing and putting together two full days of lesson plans!!! Instead of a nasty trick from Mother Nature, I am hoping for a Treat! Be safe and good luck to all of you in the area! :)
