The class develops number sense, while composing and decomposing numbers up to 5, by creating meals with items from the food pyramid. On paper plates, they draw or glue pictures of different foods from two groups (or more) making addends that create a larger number. On the back, they write number sentences to represent their "meals." Various practice activities with 10-strips reinforce the concepts.
Express or represent a feeling or value in a drawing. The class writes the theme on paper and draws what the theme looks like with pen, pencil, pastels, or paints. Finally, young scholars use a drawing program and upload their work to HumanityQuest.Com to be posted on the website and share with the online group interested in that value and evaluate and discuss works displayed on the site with other students.
A well-developed art lesson is always great to have around. This lesson on portrait drawing includes a full procedure, modifications, background information on artist Chuck Close, recommended websites, and a few thoughts from the lesson's developer. Portrait drawing using the grid method can be your next great art project.
Learners hone their drawing techniques to create a nature-inspired piece of art. They practice hatching, cross hatching, stippling, and shading. They discuss how each method is better suited for creating specific elements in nature such as grass, water, and leaves. A well-outlined procedure and vocabulary list make this a good art lesson.
Young readers use a selection of informational texts to learn about Alaska and the Iditarod in this five-day language arts lesson from Scholastic. Learners begin by creating a class idea web as they read the provided texts. After reading the several informational texts included in this resource, learners are ready to display all their knowledge in a class vocabulary book. Small groups draw pictures of Iditarod terms and write captions explaining them.
Kids create a clown out of shapes. They work to show emotions while practicing their drawing skills. Pupils use circles, triangles, squares, oil pastels, and their imagination to draw, color, and decorate a sad or happy clown. Tip: Have each child write two simple sentences describing the shapes used in creating the clown.
Take an idea from the classic game Pictionary to give your scholars prefix and suffix review. They play Win, Lose, or Draw in two or three large teams, using a list of words with affixes as a guide. Teams send up a player who receives one of the words from the list to draw as his teammates guess. Switch off until all words are covered. This is best as a review of a large list of words, so save it until you've covered quite a few. Use this as a fun strategy for vocabulary words, too!
