PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Interactive and Pattern-filled Coloring Sheets for your Johnny Appleseed studies - including Writing Prompts--NO PREP. This unique set of pop art coloring sheets features a variety of images that would be a great accompaniment to your lessons this fall.

My Johnny Appleseed interactive and pattern-filled coloring sheets make art integration easy for classroom teachers. Simply print the sheets that fit the interests and needs of your students, make copies and hand them out. Provide students with crayons, markers or colored pencils. These coloring sheets are great because they really make kids think! No two interactive coloring sheets will ever be the same - just like the kids who are creating them!

As an art teacher, artist, and lover of all things “artsy,” I am a big proponent of “art for art’s sake.” My “pop art” interactive coloring sheets are designed such that they can be used any time in your classroom for the sake of making art.

However, I am a teacher so I understand how hard-pressed classroom teachers are for time. You might not feel like you can give up precious lesson time to let the kids “color.” So to help make this these art-themed activities more aligned to the common core standards, I have included writing prompts in this lesson. As one happy teacher commented, “I love that I can incorporate artwork in CCSS using these student designed pictures. These pictures lend themselves to being a springboard for the writing process - addressing Core Standards. Very innovative!! Thank you!”

And my interactive coloring sheets are not just ordinary coloring sheets. As one of my Instagram followers said:

"I found that my 5th/6th graders come to me and because of the focus on testing, never played with color or design or patterns. Your products give them that opportunity and I’ve seen so much improvement in their attention to detail as well as noticing patterns, lines, etc. It’s so much more than 'just coloring.'" ~E.D.

Students spend a lot of thought and consideration when deciding where the patterns will go in each design. Students also have to color small details which improves their fine motor skills which help with many things--handwriting being one example. If your students were to make several of these (along with writings as well) they would have a beautiful portfolio at the end of the year!

I have also included a full set of coloring sheets that already have the patterns filled in. This is to allow you room for flexibility with students that might otherwise struggle to add the patterns themselves.

Testing is a part of life, as we know. So use these to start the brain in the morning before testing, or use them when students finish early so they have something creative to do after testing. I’ve even had teachers comment that these interactive coloring sheets are great to use with students when one-on-one conferencing is necessary to keep the other students engaged and busy.

If you like these coloring sheets you may also like my Interactive Coloring Sheets for all Major Holidays.

I've created all of my holiday themed coloring sheets as math fact review coloring sheets that can be purchased individually or at a huge discount in the Bundle of all 10 math sets.

Teachers love these coloring sheets too and that's why I made some just for teachers...they are free and can be found by clicking here.

Thank you for making art with your students!
