After school I took a picture of our art project (yes, art. Once in a while we get to it.) that we did last week. It came from a class I took, although I can no longer remember what class it was. I hadn't done it in quite a while but knew this class was careful enough and would do a good job. I read the book The Colors of Us by Karen Katz. We had studied about Martin Luther King, so this fit right in. My parent helper traced the kids hands, I premixed skin color paints, and we were ready. The kids painted the backgrounds the second day. Don't they look great?
The first goes with the Leo Lionni story A Busy Year and is for Daily 5- Listen to Reading. Since this story is only a few minutes long, I made this to go with it. Just click on the picture to grab it.
There's also a Math Work Stations freebie to work on equivalent number sentences. Again, just click on the picture to grab it.
Wishing you lots of fun blogstalking,
