November- December Kindergarten
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons was the inspiration for this project. Students learned about numbers, counting and subtraction.
The Kindergarden students made pinch pots. I surprised them by placing a marble in the bottom that melted to create a glass bottom.
Student created a gumball machine with 25 gumballs that cost 25 cents each. Their image was based on the work of Wayne Thiebaud.
I read the story Action Jackson to the students and than they made artwork using Hot Wheels cars. Great fine motor skills project.
We looked at using construction to make snowmen and how working together can be useful. I read The Biggest Snowman.
We talked about warm and cool colors. Students learned that warm colors are yellow, orange and red. The learned that cool colors are blue, green and purple. They applied this knowledge by creating the following work based on Kandinsky's Circles.
I read Mice on Ice. Students created a collage of the book using the cat on ice in the background. We discussed landscape having 3 parts: foreground, middle ground and back ground.
