- Kindergarteners love art, tech and writing
These students, in addition to writing some information for a book report, created a book character sculpture out of low fire clay. After it was fired, the students added all the details for their main character with different materials, being sure to add all the important items the character needed in the story. If clay is not available, students can create a drawing or collage of the character instead.
After listening to Charlotte’s Web in class, first grade students discussed all of the character’s details and had a mini art lesson on drawing each of them. I used basic shapes to show students how to draw a person, pig, rat or spider. These drawings accompanied their writing about their favorite character.
Student groups wrote math story problems, created all of the pieces needed and animated them using stop motion. We used iPads with the iMotion app. See all the videos here.
After writing a nonfiction piece in their classroom, second grade students created a precise illustration to go into their work. They used accurate labels so that readers could understand all the important details.
