Kindergarten artists are finishing up some cute little penguins this week. We’ve been learning about texture, so we created a background by rubbing texture plates with white crayons, then painted over the texture rubbing with blue watercolor to really make the texture pop.
During our next class, I read Florence Minor’s “If You Were A Penguin” .
We figured out how to cut an oval from a 9×12 piece of construction paper (cut the corners off!) and learned how to fold an orange square in half to make a beak and to cut feet. The eyes – so easy – round stickers with a hole punched in the center. We finished up with details in oil pastel. Cute!
