Kinders Draw…Cars ‘N Trucks

Georgetown’s Kindergarteners are really excited about their new project…drawing cars and trucks.  We read lots of books about vehicles and talked about all the details on vehicles – big tires with fancy tire treads, door handles and doors, lights, and mufflers.  These kids know their vehicles and had a blast drawing the car or truck of their dreams.

Before they began adding color to their vehicles, we did a review of the primary colors and used just red, yellow, and blue on their masterpieces.  Mrs. Brouwer challenged them to do their best coloring by moving only their hand – not their whole arm – while coloring.  They gave those small hand muscles quite a workout!

Learning Goals: I can identify the primary colors; I can color using my small hand muscles; I can add lots of details to my drawing.  And an unexpected learning goal that I love: at the end of each class, my kinders have been telling each other what they learned that day.  Here’s one of the best ones: “I learned that when you paint the sky, the color goes all the way down to meet the ground”.

Look for these fabulous vehicles on our ARTSONIA on-line gallery soon!
