Me and My Sign!
In the first month of school, I was struggling with a project that I liked for first grade. After discussing this problem with my teacher friend, Laura Harrison, she had a suggestion. Laura said, "Why don't you get kids to draw a self portrait with them saying something about first grade? She said, You can have them holding a sign." I jumped on this idea. There is nothing better than having a great co-worker to bounce ideas back and forth with in a crunch!
I cut a rather large sheet of paper.
I drew a rectangle on each paper.
When the kids arrived, I explained the project idea.
I had them draw themselves holding the sign.
The kids painted with tempera cakes.
Here is a funny. One of the little girls had to go to the restroom. I guess she could not remember my name. She says, "Mrs. Artica, may I go the the restroom?" I cracked up. I told that sweet child, "That's not my name. I am Mrs. Ray.''
Hey, at least she did have the word Art in my name.
You gotta love those fun first graders!
Here is a perfect song for this post by The Ting Tings.
