Zentangle letters was an easy first of year project for 5th Grade.
I gave kids a copy of the alphabet. The printout had letters bold so kids could easily look and draw.
Kids used a pencil to draw letters. I did not let the kids use rulers. The project was not a "draw the best letter that you ever drew in your life" project. I just wanted kids to get a decent letter, doodle, and reflect.
Once they got the letter drawn in pencil, they outlined the letter with a sharpie and begin their doodling.
As always, the zentangle project was a very relaxing project for the kids.
I had thought the homeroom teacher would enjoy having these to hang in her room for the first few weeks of school. I had assumed that the students would use the letter that started their first or last name. Nope. I actually had some students that just picked a random letter. Sometimes you just gotta say, "whatevs" and move on.
