1st Grade

I first read my 1st graders “The Straight Line Wonder”.

I have them act out the book with  movement using their bodies as if they were lines, they LOVE it!  After reviewing all the famous lines, they are given black tempera paint to draw the lines.

On day two once their lines have dried, they are given watercolors to paint each section in between the lines.

On day three they get to make their monsters cutting out eyes, mouth, teeth, legs, arms, etc.

I then created the huge “Line Monster” out of their work for the Art Exhibition.
