1st grade Paul Klee Cat and Bird


Here's a 1st grade project we did a couple of weeks ago, and the kids really enjoyed it! It also worked well with being on a cart and following health protocols too. 
We looked at the art of Paul Klee and then we created our own version by following along with me. 
Here's how we created it!

Virtual Elementary Art lessons


This year, we've been teaching in person since August 31st, which has been great, but we've also been submitting lessons for our virtual learners too. Here are the 3rd grade lessons I put out this year. 3rd-5th, or anyone for that matter, could follow along with us! 
Here's the links to the videos! Hope you enjoy!

How to draw 3-D looking boxes with a surprise inside!


Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Sorry, I'm late in posting this lesson, but we had a very unexpected "snow week" last week, right after Valentine's Day. My little boy was born 4 years ago, on that day, so we spent the day celebrating him! Here's how we celebrated at school! After we made our Chris Uphues 3-5th mural, we went on to try Tabitha Seaton's box with hearts lesson! 4th and 5th did a great job drawing their boxes with me, because of her neat instructions on how to do so. I made a video for my 3rd grade virtual students showing them how to make it as well. You can watch that below! 

For this project we used:

Tru-Ray construction paper

Sax 90lb paper


black Sharpie markers

Scissors & Glue sticks

Never Let a Unicorn Scribble


Welcome back to school friends! 
We were out for over a month, and last week, we were finally back! I saw this lesson on Instagram with @arwithmrs.carter, and thought our students would have fun with it too! We read the book, Never Let a Unicorn Scribble, by Diane Alber, and we drew this with 1st and 2nd grade!
Here's some examples of their great work!

Patriotic art for Veterans Day!


This week, and the beginning of the next, we're working on patriotic works of art, to celebrate Veterans Day! We are a big military town, and we want to support our local veterans and country! 4th & 5th worked on their shading in this American flag project, 1st and 2nd grade worked on their drawing skills, sketching out a bald eagle with me, and 3rd is drawing the Art Project for Kids, head of the statue of liberty surrounded by fireworks!  They're doing a great job so far!
Check out our art below! 
btw, I found the flag idea on The Lost Sock Blog, by Tabitha Morgan! Click on her name for how to!

This is a great art on a cart lesson because of the minimal supplies!
Here's what we used:
