Art Activities

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share a couple of cute art activities we did this week.

This first one comes from the Grade 1 teacher next door to me.  She used bears and I used bunnies. They have marshmallows glued on their feet to remind the kids to work quietly! 



Then we read this very cute alphabet book:


After that we did a directed drawing to create these lovely alphabetical elephants!


The kids outlined their pencil drawings with black felt and then coloured in the elephants with blue crayon. I gave them some photocopied bubble letters on blue paper which they then cut out and glued on Albert's trunk.

  2. Your elephants are so cute. There's something so joyful about first graders' drawings.
