1st Grade - Rainbow Fish!

This lesson is an original by Julie Werkman, who I student taught with 25 years ago. It is a great lesson for teaching the elements of art! Line, shape, color, texture, and value are all worked in!

I pre-trace the fish bowl on the back of the paper before the next class, then students cut out and add seaweed and rocks! After painting a…

1st Grade Colored Glass

As a conclusion to their unit on color, first graders used markers to color this bottle and jar "puzzle," demonstrating their knowledge of how secondary colors are made by combining primaries.

I'm not sure why I just expected that the county would give me additional money for start up supplies (scissors, rulers, etc.)... cauuuuseee that didn't happen. In fact every art teacher in our county lost $50 each from our…

Wild About 1st Grade Art Activity Freebie.  File includes guide art images and writing prompts for kinder- 3rd grade.

The August art session with my little "firsties" was a HUGE success. We created "Wild About 1st Grade" self-portraits. They turned out so dang cute!

We'll be adding their writing prompt responses to "I'm WILD About 1st Grade Because..." as soon as we finish the edit process. I created a file with the guided art directions, supply list, and writing prompts. Feel free to…
