Halloween Fun With My Firsties

Georgetown First Graders had a blast creating some sorta scary art this week.  (Have I mentioned how much fun my firsties are?!)

We read “There Was an Old Monster!”, did a scritchy-scratch dance, (cause man, we have ants in our pants!) and drew some awesome Texture Monsters.

We finished up our busy Halloween week by learning how to draw spiders and webs…and our spidees wove some beautiful artistic webs!

We are having “catch up” days in the art room, finishing up projects left from our snow days last month.  As artists finished, they had an opportunity to draw these fun snakes.  We read Craig Frazier’s “Stanley Mows the Lawn” and searched for Hank the Snake in his book.  After looking at Ed Emberly’s snake drawing ideas, artists slithered to their seats and began their sketches!

Little Monsters

First Grade artists had monstrous fun creating these monsters on a tall brick wall.  We sponge printed the wall and then drew our silly monsters up on our wall.  We read lots of monster-y books for drawing inspiration – these were two of our favorites.

Did you know that you can listen to a fun song from “There Was An Old Monster”?  My kiddos LOVE it!  Listen to it here.  Don’t let the ants get in your pants!


Drawing our monsters, and some pretty cute finished little monsters.


Parents, you’ll find this project on ARTSONIA too!
