First Graders began a scarecrow project this week – they can’t wait to get to the scarecrow part! I need to give kudos to Patty at Deep Space Sparkle for this project – I’ve always avoided scarecrows with the little people – too scary?! Deep Space has some excellent ideas for scarecrow projects, without the scary. We spent this week creating the landscape for our scarecrows, drawing a hilly field with oil pastels and painting with watercolors. Next…scarecrows!
