This was a little free project at the tail end of a class. We were finishing up another, and I had my daughter with me that day, sooo … I had Leah take the kids who were finished out into the hall, and read this book to them.
We had prepared some sheets of paper in advance, with one dot on each – different sizes and different colours. The task? Start with the dot and draw out from there. How will the dot be a part of it? We gave them some markers and a patch of floor to create their 15 minute masterpieces. Here are the results:
We will be doing some more cooperative work between the Library and the Art Room … watch for it.
