Kindergarten and 1st Grade Windy Day Trees

The best advice I got from one of the other district Art Teachers was that its okay to double up on projects for different grades to keep myself from going insane (I see all 7 grades in 1 day). I don't think I have it in me to do the EXACT same project because I love all the different things that come through my rooms, but here is the case where I did almost identical projects. In both classes we read "Leaf Man" by Lois Elhert (which I always have mixed feelings about her books, the writing is so difficult as far as flow...) and talked about what colors the leaves turn in the fall. 1st grade took it a step further by imagining what it would look like if leaves turned any color possible. Day two for both classes was the same, we read the "The Windy Day" by Anna Milbourne and Elena Temporin, talked about how artists showed wind, and added it to our paper. REALLY loved how these turned out and each school a little different depending on the paper we had laying around...

This one is probably my favorite and will be going into the fall art display in our district office!

Almost every student that did one of these projects was successful and that makes for one very happy Art Teacher! These will for sure get done again in the future!
