Snakes and Patterns for a Kindergarten Circus!
Hey y'all! Seen any snakes with this warm weather? This was a quick lesson we did to teach our kindergarten about patterns. I used a 12x18 piece of paper and cut out the slinky slanky snakey. The kids used markers...we love the scented markers the best...they last longer. Not kiddin' folks, I did a test about 10 years ago when I was teaching middle school in Fayette County, GA. These markers last way longer than other brands in my opinion...just sayin' for what it is worth. I taught a mini lesson on Elements and Principles of ART and we created our snakes with some coolzy designs! After the kids finished the patterns we chose a fun colored 12x18 background and added the stick on eyes! These will be used for the backdrop at the HCES Kindergarten Circus in May!
