You can find a brand new post on the classroom blog by clicking HERE or here www.strokesofart.blogspot.com . There you'll find a few samples of what the Kindergarten and First Grade students are working on this week and what we plan to work on this year in Art class. Check back often to see what's new.
We are just about finished our Reading Celebration Projects. A very special "THANK YOU" to several of my parent helpers, Mrs. VanGorder, Mrs. J. Madison, Mrs. T. Madison and Mrs. McClellan for helping put together the pennants and gold medals for the students. I couldn't do it without you!
So, with that we are just about to start our Farm Unit. Both Kindergarten and First Grade will learn and review the concept of "landscape paintings". They will learn key words, such as "background" and "foreground". By the month's end the Kindergarten students will have had their first experience with watercolor paint and First Grade will experience both watercolor and tempera paint. When the Farm Landscapes are done, we are planning Scarecrow Portraits for Kindergarten and Cartoon Cows for First Grade. Check the classroom blog for photos. :o)
Love, Mrs. Broaderick!
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!
