Dear Grade 1,
Your homeroom learning has trickled into the Visual Arts classroom and we are having a blast! You came to class buzzing about how animals can adapt to their environments. We started talking about how we could represent this concept of adaptation in an artwork. We had just read 'A Colour of his Own' by Leo Lionni and you were inspired! Chameleons!!!! Yes!!!
Our first step was to think about how we can create chameleons that adapt or change within the piece. This collaboration was so fun to think about with all of you. In the end, we decided to create puppets and a puppet theater!
Check out your initial steps below and see your theater in action in your gallery...
With a career spanning 25 years, I have worked alongside children from infancy to 9th grade in a generalist classroom setting. To my delight and surprise, an opportunity arose for me to become an art teacher in 2015. My first year was a learning experience and I expect that will be the case with all the years to follow.
