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!
