We are 2 SISTERS on a MAGICALLY-DELICIOUS creative journey as we put our heart and SOUL into teaching students and inspiring other blog followers!

Week 1- The kids made a painting with lines using tempera cakes.
Week 2-The kids picked out a piece of colored construction paper.
The kids tore their Week 1 art into pieces.
The kids randomly placed the torn paper on the piece of colored construction paper with a glue stick.
I used this lesson to teach the kids about lines. They learned how to choose construction paper to compliment their artwork. Also, I talked a little about balance. Another important detail involved in the project was the use of a glue stick.
Simple project, but feel like the kids gained valuable knowledge that can be used in the upcoming year.
Have a look!
At the beginning of the year, I encourage students to talk to teach other in art class. I try to get the new students to connect with the "old" students. My job is to help make the new kids feel welcome. School is much more fun with friends.
