This lesson is a wonderful way to introduce how to form new shapes out of several other shapes put together, for example a pig! I have to say this is my Kindergarten's favorite lesson because they get so attached to their piggies by the end they are dying to take them home! It seems to be the perfect combination of painting and oil pastels - which are their favorites!
This lesson introduces shapes, as well as painting inside the line, and tracing techniques!
Along with every lesson, on the last page, I include a sheet of handouts that describe the lesson along with the main concepts that were taught to the students. This sheet can be cut into strips, one for each student, and stapled onto their projects to be sent home for parents reading! (click thumbnail to preview handout slips)
