Art Week 1

 This week has been just great! I decided to stay at Ross Elementary as a part time art teacher and intervention teacher. :0) Last week we looked and remember how we were all artists using inspiration from the dot. This week in art we are studying our face and we made a sketchbook today! This year will have a lot of writing! After being trained in dibels yesterday, I have an appreciation of what classroom teachers are responsible for teaching students. I encourage every art/related arts teacher to collaborate with their grade levels. I hope your year has started off on the right foot!



Nature's beauty to start of the Monday morning. The day was just awesome!

Free stuff to start of a Tuesday morning :0)

Sketchbook Ideas

A must do every year! Tape a large paper to the table and when Kinders finish with their project, they have something to keep them busy! One table, as you can see...loved it a little too much but hey that's what art is for...experimenting!!!




Sketchbooks were made by K-4 today and they loved it. I had a pre-assessment of them drawing a portrait, then we filled in a template, and next week they will draw a self-portrait :0) A big thank you to my dad who drilled holes in 3 reams of paper, which was over in 5 minutes. I suggest a drill press over a hole punch. My goal is to use what I have in the room this year.

The large paper for when kindergarten is finished is brilliant. Thank you for that ! Love the dot display. What does the template look like that you do after the preassessment?
