This SMARTBoard activity is inspired by Claude Monet’s use of reflection in his art. Students need to record “reflections” of certain CVC words to make new ones! They need to decode each word and show the meanings of the words with artwork. This activity can be done as a whole class on the SMARTBoard or individually with printed out pages or both for added practice!
This activity is part of a Claude Monet Artist Study, which is a portion of our complete Artist Biography Unit.
