So I know Christmas has passed us for another year, but I wanted to share some of the projects my students were working on for the holidays. 1st grade made Christmas fireplace scenes using a red rectangle and a shine strip of wrapping paper as the base. 2nd made their own reindeer with whatever color nose they wished. 4th grade made dancing santa cards out of wrapping paper triangles. Here are some of my favorites.
Earlier in the year each grade did a different unit that used leaves as the subject. 3rd grade use leaves to make a cubist design and 5th grade used oil pastels to create warm and cool colored leaves.
The 5th graders are still working out which colors are cool and warm, but I hope by the end of the year they will get it.
