Giraffes Cant Dance

You've seen it before on countless blogs and i'm sorry i cant recall where i last saw it (may have been Deep Space Sparkle) but i had to try it my way.... we read the story drew a dancing giraffe on yellow paper added spots, painted a landscape, added stars and glued our giraffes to be dancing through the sky.  VERY FUN project with super cute, creative results!

Hatching Elephants

This was the first 4/5 project of the year simple but fun... the students were given  a picture of an elephant just like in the safari landscape project, and were told to draw it.   After that i showed them a few simple hatching techniques and explained how this would cause the drawings to look a bit more realistic. Then they were to color the background one solid color in crayon.  Simple. fun. easy way to start the year off project.
