December, what a beautiful month!
In the Art Room we have started another favorite lesson of mine...one I tend to be very passionate about. :o) As of Monday, December 5th, we've officially started to learn about Animation and the history of Walt Disney. The Kindergarten students are starting out with a very basic color and paint activity at the PBS website. Click HERE for Curious George's Mix and Paint. The first graders are creating very short and simple animations HERE at the abcya.com website. We will continue to work on these website during the month of December. We'll also learn more about what animators do and how much animation has improved over the last 100 years. When we return in January, we'll learn about "4D animation" when we utilize our tablets again and use the Crayola Alive App. It'll be my first time doing this with students, but I anticipate it will be a very favorite activity!
Wishing you and yours a blessed Winter Break
I totally love to receive letters, art work or notes from my students. If they want to write to me I will write them back!
