Inside: A free scarecrow poem and art activity.
Although we’ve now begun our bat unit, our poem this week is about a silly old scarecrow. I’m sharing both a colour and black/white version with you.

We also painted some fabulous scarecrows today! This lesson is from Deep Space Sparkle.
We did this lesson in two parts.
In the morning we completed a directed drawing of the scarecrows using black pastels. No pencils allowed! I was worried some of my little perfectionists were going to be stressed out with this, but it was seriously great. There were no tears and EVERYONE ended up with a great looking scarecrow.
Here’s what a couple of them looked like before we painted them.
Aren’t they sweet?
Part 2 was in the afternoon when I gave the kids some blue, red and yellow tempera paints. They went to town. For some of them, the best part was mixing the colours to make new ones:)
I have another scarecrow art activity here. It’s actually a Thanksgiving post but if you scroll to the bottom you’ll find the cute scarecrows.
