Fall Leaves Art Project

This was an easy painting activity. Step 1 paint the paper one color with the watercolors. Step 2 put the leaves on VEINS UP, paint the leaves (I would have the kids go over them a lot) Step 3 leave the leaves on over night. The next day peel off. I took the leaves and ran them threw the laminator and they came out beautiful.

This is the site I got this great activity from

Go Away Green Monster

Monster Sheet

Our Big Monsters

This project goes with the book Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley.
This was a fun art project to make with kindergarteners. We cut the faces and made the hair on day one. Day two we added the faces and words. They could pick out the colors and shapes for the face.

The Bumpy Little Pumpkin

We made our  bumpy pumpkins!
I love this art project. I got this great idea from I HEART CRAFTY THINGS This was an easy project to do in two days. We painted the pumpkin, stem, and grass. Once they dried we glued them down. I loved the site I HEART CRAFTY THINGS she has fantastic stuff on her blog.

Interactive Writing in Kindergarten

Interactive Writing Time

During an interactive writing lesson, the teacher and students share both the composing and the writing. Individual students take turns "sharing the pen" to write parts of the messag. Because our writing is intended to be read either by ourselves or by someone else we want to make sure it is written in "book writing."

This week we have been reading lots of books about pumpkins. We have been writing some of the facts we are learning. During this writing lesson, we focused on spelling and spaces between words.
