If You Are Happy and You Know It, Draw A Self Portrait!
Happy! First Graders at The Westfield School are happy because they learned a little about drawing a self portrait.
I did a little prep work. I looked up happy t-shirts and found this cute t-shirt. I copied the shirt and put it in a word document. Then, I printed out the size that I wanted. Then, I cut out the shirt and pasted to a sheet of paper. I drew in the arms and the neck.
I talked to them about drawing a self portrait. We spent a good bit of time examining each others' faces. I explained where the eyes, the nose, mouth, and ears were located on the face. The kids drew themselves.
They colored with crayons.
I mounted on a sheet of paper and wrote "Happy" and then, their names.
Have a look!
