This picture was based on our Zoo in the Sky art lesson! It is a fun way to practice spelling words.
This picture teaches a math principle at the same time the student practices spelling! This is a great double integration!
This is another fun first grade writing/art project that is a favorite of Mrs. Peterson. Each student created a spider web by dipping a marble in white paint and then letting the marble roll around inside a box lined with a black piece of paper. The spiders in this project were copied and colored by the students and glued on the web. Each child then wrote about their project. This is a great authentic writing experience because the children were able to write about something they created and it makes it more meaningful for the child.
