2nd Graders with BIG Hearts

These ended up so BIG and Beautiful (12 x 18).  2nd Grade students tore paper and glued, tore paper and glued for 40 minutes.  Fast Forward to the next Art Time - added messages for a special person.  Perfect way to get rid of scraps.
You can't choose favorites - right?  I love Owen's color choices and handwriting!
 I had to take two photos because he wasn't finished ;)


the patterns created by this little planner are awesome!



5th Grade Winter Landscape

I understand what Art Teachers are talking about when they post rants about projects that all look alike.  I want to be the best Art Teacher that I can be.  Can you see the beautiful differences?  The project was the same for each 5th grader but the results look very different to me.
